Missouri offers a thorough system of personal injury laws meant to protect parties who are injured through another’s negligence. Here, though the accident may have been because of one driver, that action can be lessened by the other driver’s own negligence. The party seeking relief will be entitled to payment for lost wages, pain and suffering, any damaged property, and any medical bills incurred as a result of the accident that are not a result of his own negligence.
