Missouri car accident cases can often benefit from a legal doctrine called negligence per se. This is when wrongdoing that cases damage is also a violation of a codified law such as a statute or ordinance. In car accident cases, it most often comes in the form of the negligent driver running a red light and causing an accident.
Generally, if you prove that the violation of the statute caused your injuries, then you win on liability. This helps strengthen liability and makes your case better. You don't have to dedicate as much time proving that the other party was negligent and you can focus more time on proving your damages.
