AIM supports seat belt evidence bill in House committee

The House Judiciary Committee heard a bill allowing judges and juries to hear evidence of whether a plaintiff was properly using his/her seat belt in lawsuits alleging the auto manufacturer did not adequately protect the plaintiff this week.

Senate Bill 30, sponsored by Sen. Dan Hegeman, would also remove the artificial 1% reduction in benefits for failure to wear a seat belt in current law.

The bill had many supporters, including Associated Industries of Missouri. Only the Missouri Assn. of Trial Attorneys testified against the bill. A vote to advance the bill from committee is anticipated soon.
