Auto Accidents Attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri
Auto Accidents Causing Death and Serious Injuries
Auto accidents rank as one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States of America. A negligent driver can cause you or a loved one physical injury, pain and suffering, lost wages and benefits, and significant medical bills. If you have been in a serious auto accident, you can speak with an attorney at Sifers Jensen Palmer for free to get advice about your rights with no obligation. We handle cases all over the country but our offices are in Kansas City and Springfield, Missouri.
What Should I Do Immediately After a Car Accident?
First, you should concentrate on taking care of yourself medically by getting whatever medical treatment you and your doctor deem necessary for your auto injury. You should obtain the police report if officers were called to the scene, and you should immediately notify your own insurance company of the accident. Also, be sure to document your injuries and the damage to your vehicle by taking photographs and preserving any other evidence from the auto accident. Often the negligent driver’s insurance company will attempt to get you to settle your claim for significantly less than what you are entitled to for your personal injury. Knowing your rights before you talk with the other driver’s insurance company is extremely important, and you should contact an experienced auto accident lawyer to discuss your rights and any early settlement offers you receive from the insurance company.
What Should I Provide to The Insurance Company for The Other Driver?
Other than contact information, you should not speak with the other driver’s insurance company until you have talked with your own injury lawyer. Additionally, you should not sign any statements or medical authorizations until you have spoken with your own attorney.
Do I Need A Lawyer for My Auto Accident?
When you get into an automobile accident, the insurance company will immediately assign an adjuster and lawyer to evaluate your claim. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of an attorney in order to ensure that you are properly prepared to deal with those lawyers and adjusters and so that you are not bullied in the early stages of your claim. We offer free consultations to our auto accident clients so that you know your rights.
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
You should immediately contact a car accident lawyer after your auto collision in order to know your rights and get your case filed quickly and correctly. The time limit to file your auto accident case varies depending on what state the accident occurred in, and whether you or a loved one had personal injuries or there was a wrongful death due to negligence in the auto accident.
