Car Accidents Attorneys in Kansas City, Missouri
Car accidents often have drastic consequences for those involved. Many victims do not survive an accident, but even those that do are likely to feel the effects of the accident for many years to come.
If you have been involved in a car accident, you may have incurred serious injuries which require you to make major lifestyle changes. You may suffer chronic pain and you may be unable to return to work. Medical care is expensive and depending on the extent of your injuries, you may require ongoing treatment which contributes to further financial strain. Insurance companies claim that they will take care of you after an accident, but their goal is to settle your case for as little as possible. You need experienced representation from a Kansas City car accident lawyer.

What to Do in The Event of A Car Accident
If you are in an auto accident, here are some tips to keep in mind:
If you or another person is seriously injured, call 911 immediately.
If you are able, obtain contact and insurance information from the other driver.
Report the accident to the police, and note the report number for later reference or request a copy of the accident report.
If possible, take pictures of the accident scene. If you are unable to do this, ask someone else to do it for you.
