St. Louis Accident Statistics
Missouri uses the principle of pure comparative negligence to determine liability and compensation in an accident. A person injured in an accident can recover damages for her injuries even if she was 99 percent at fault for the accident. In such situations the damages awarded to the victim are reduced by her responsibility in the accident. For example, if the injured party is 75 percent responsible for the accident, her award is reduced by 75 percent.
