1. What should I do right after a personal injury accident?
- Get medical treatment
- Call the police
- Take pictures, in a car accident take a photo of the other driver, his or her car, and his or her license tag.
- Write down the contact information of all the parties and witnesses
2. Should I call a lawyer?
Yes, give us a call. Even if you do not have a case, it will be essential to get a general understanding of the law. We can tell you what your next step should be, and if a lawyer can help you. The call is free.
3. What if I’m at partially at fault?
Most states have what are called comparative fault laws. If comparative fault is found, any percentage of responsibility that is placed on you will reduce the amount of your recovery.
4. What if the other driver does not have insurance?
You will still have a claim which will be paid out of the other driver’s assets and/or your own uninsured motorist policy.
5. How long do I have to make a claim?
There are time limits called statutes of limitations. In Kansas, you have two years, and in Missouri, you have five years for certain types of claims. You don’t want to wait because it can take a long time to prepare a case and memories fade over time.
