In A Car Accident? A Personal Injury Lawyer Will Save You Stress & Secure Your Compensation

Tuesday, Nov. 15th 2022

Car accidents are traumatic and often result in life-changing injuries. A personal injury lawyer specializing in car accidents will help more than you think following a collision.

Misconception #1: It’s Easier To Handle The Aftermath On Your Own

Many people tend to assume that it is easier for you and the other driver(s) to handle the aftermath of a car accident just between yourselves. While this is certainly a possibility, there is a lot that hiring legal representation can do to make the process less stressful.

When you find yourself in an accident on a road in Kansas City, a car accident lawyer can be vital to the outcome of your case. A Northland Injury Law attorney will conduct an investigation, locate witnesses and preserve evidence that is crucial to your case. A lawyer will also help protect your legal rights as well as deal with insurance companies for you. 

Misconception #2: Insurance Companies Will Cover Your Accident Costs

It’s another common belief that insurance companies will thoroughly cover the costs associated with a car accident, but this is, unfortunately, not true.

Studies show that only 51% of people who were injured in a car accident and didn’t hire a lawyer received compensation. To save their bottom line, insurance companies will work to limit the amount of compensation you get to reduce the amount of money they have to pay out. A car accident lawyer from Northland Injury Law in Kansas City will work to ensure you get all the money that you are entitled to. 

Misconception #3: The Injured Party Doesn’t Have To Provide The Burden Of Proof

Contrary to popular belief, the burden of proof of negligence on the part of the responsible party falls on the injured party – the plaintiff – in an accident case.

A Kansas City car accident lawyer from Northland Injury Law will have the expertise it takes to effectively evaluate all the evidence gathered from the accident. As their clients will tell you, they will expertly pinpoint the legal basis for the claim in order to prove that you, as the plaintiff, are entitled to the entirety of the compensation you are seeking.

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.
