Personal injury law sets certain standards that must be met before a car accident victim can claim that damages arose from another party's negligence. In legal cases, a Missouri resident is expected to exercise the highest degree of care when drving a car. A crash victim must then collect evidence that some form of negligence occurred and that it directly caused the injuries.

Nearly 2,000 drivers across Missouri and the rest of the U.S. responded to an online market research study that was focused on distracted driving.
