Car Accident Lawsuits

Insurance companies are responsible for paying the damages resulting from the actions of their policyholders. While the person at fault for the wreck may feel remorse and want to help, the insurance company rarely holds the same attitude and will try to argue that the victims should be blamed. They will employ ever tactic possible to convince a court that their insured has done nothing wrong, which means you will need aggressive attorneys that can clearly demonstrate this crash could have and should have, been avoided.

In a car crash lawsuit, your attorney needs to investigate 4 key elements:

  • That the defendant was driving recklessly and without the expected level of care required by law.
  • If the defendant disobeyed any traffic signs or rules of the road when the accident occurred.
  • That the plaintiff would not have sustained injuries if not for the collision.
  • The full extent of the injured person’s medical bills, both presently and in the future, so as to achieve a fair settlement or trial verdict.

By gathering these facts, your legal counsel should be able to explain to a court how you were wronged. Several parties could be held liable for these accidents, including the driver, the vehicle’s mechanic, or the vehicle manufacturer. An experienced personal injury attorney in Kansas City can help you pursue all the culpable entities.

Steps to Take After a Car Accident

If you are involved in an accident, remember these vital steps to ensure that you get all the information you need for your claim and to strengthen your case.

  • Make sure everyone is ok. If anyone is injured, call 911 right away and get medical help. This is the single most important step after a car accident. Once you are certain that everyone is ok and anyone who needs help has been attended to, then you can move on to the next step.
  • Move the vehicles out of traffic, if you're able to safely do so. If you're able to pull off to the side, do so. Don't forget to turn on your hazard lights!
  • Call the police. Filing an accident report will help with your injury claim. When the officer has finished taking their report, be sure you obtain the report number from them. It will take several days before the report is ready, but you and your insurance company will both want a copy of the report once it is finished.
  • Exchange information with the other driver. Be sure to exchange the following: name, address, phone number, license plate number, driver's license number and state, and insurance information. If there were any witnesses, ask for their contact information as well.
  • Take pictures. Take pictures of everything at the scene of your accident: the damage to your car, the damage to the other party’s car, any visible injuries you may have sustained (cuts, bruises, etc.), the conditions of the road you are on, and any traffic control devices that may have been involved (stop signs, traffic signals, speed limit signs, etc.) All of these things could wind up being important later in the investigation, and having evidence to support your claims could make the difference between winning your case outright and sharing fault. It's also a good idea to take pictures of the other driver's license and insurance info in case anything was written down incorrectly.
