If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident, you know how invaluable the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer is. KNDK personal injury lawyers in Kansas City can not only help you to understand complicated auto insurance policies but also navigate medical treatment, lost income and the other consequences of your injury. If the other driver has insurance coverage, a representative of his insurance company will likely contact you and ask you to discuss the details of the car accident. Before doing so, you should speak to an attorney who is on your side.
If the other driver was working for a company at the time of the accident, it may be possible to bring a personal injury claim against his employer. If the other driver did not have insurance, it may still be possible for you to receive compensation for your injuries if you had uninsured motorist coverage on your own insurance policy. If the other driver had some insurance but not enough to fully compensate you for your injuries, you may be able to make a claim on your own policy if you had underinsured motorist coverage at the time of the accident. We have extensive experience and knowledge of those auto insurance issues.
If you or a loved one are involved in an accident, be sure to obtain the other driver’s insurance information. Also, take pictures of the scene and take down the names of any witnesses. If possible, insist on having a police officer respond to the accident scene to write a report of the accident.
There are many traps and reasons to be cautious about trying to handle your own personal injury claim. If you have been in an accident, contact a personal injury lawyer at KNDK with the knowledge and experience to help you.
