Missouri Automobile Accident Lawyer
In just seconds, some folks find their lives changed forever in car accidents. Without their health, they can't go to work and they can't care for their families the way they'd like. Many wonder what to do. Who can they turn to? Who can they trust?

What if I Was Partly at Fault?
The law on accidents isn't completely black and white. Drivers do not have to be completely at fault for an accident or completely innocent. Missouri recognizes "comparative fault." To calculate comparative fault, juries assign each driver a percentage of responsibility, then divide damages accordingly. It sounds complicated, but your lawyer will explain everything — including how you may recover compensation for your injuries after being partly at fault for an accident.
