Car Accident Lawyer in Kansas City Fights for You

Tuesday, Nov. 16th 2021

Do you need a car accident lawyer in Kansas City? If you’ve been in a car accident and need help dealing with the legal system and the insurance companies, Northland Injury Law can help. With nearly fifty years of combined experience handling accident cases, we have the expertise to help you receive compensation for your injuries and the damage to or loss of your vehicle.
It can happen to anyone, anytime. You are driving around the city, going about your daily business, and suddenly, you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. It’s important to know what to do in this situation. The Insurance Information Institute (III) and the Missouri Department of Revenue recommend that you take these steps immediately following any vehicle accident: 
  • Do not leave the scene of the accident: Leaving the scene of a vehicle accident, no matter how minor, is a crime.
  • See if anyone is injured: Check yourself and your passengers for injuries, and check with the other driver if you can safely do so. Call 9-1-1 if anyone is hurt.
  • Get to safety: Move your vehicle out of traffic if you can. Missouri’s “Steer it Clear” law requires you to do this if it is possible and safe to do so.  If your vehicle cannot be moved, get yourself and your passengers to a safe place. 
  • Call 911 to report the accident: You will need a police report for your insurance claim and any future legal action. 
  • Exchange information with the other driver: You will need contact and insurance information including full name, insurance company and policy number, driver’s license and license plate number, type, color and model of vehicle, and the location of the accident. Missouri law requires the other driver to provide their information. 
  • Do not discuss fault with the other driver: Even if you think you may have caused the accident, do not admit fault. Insurance adjusters use the police report, witness statements and other information to determine fault.
  • Document as much as you can:  Get the names and badge numbers of responding officers, and ask them how you can get a copy of the accident report. Take pictures from multiple angles. If possible, note the names and numbers of passengers in both vehicles, and any possible witnesses.
  • Notify your insurance company and file a claim: If you can do so safely, you may want to contact your insurance while at the scene. However, it is vitally important that you do not admit fault or sign anything from your insurance company without first speaking to an attorney. 
  • Find a car accident lawyer in Kansas City:  If you or your passengers have been injured, or if you have injured someone else, you need a lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected. 
If you or your passengers are suffering from injuries due to a collision, you need to find a car accident lawyer in Kansas City. Contact Northland Injury Law at (816) 400-4878 to schedule a free consultation.

Northland Injury Law is proud of the relationships they’ve built with the clients they have served in the Northland and surrounding areas.  Their many great results for seriously injured people have helped their clients recover the significant economic losses that attend such serious injuries.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
