Kansas City Injury Attorneys: Tips for Avoiding Accidents

Thursday, Aug. 6th 2015

1. Take good care of your vehicle: The expression, “Prevention is better than a cure” is no different when it comes to automobile accidents. Periodic servicing and maintenance go a long way and will help you keep your car in good shape. Get your tires, engines, lights and brakes checked at least once every couple of months.

2. Stay alert: This may sound redundant, but many accidents occur because the driver was drowsy or too tired to drive. Ensure that you are always aware of your surroundings.

3. Check and recheck: It never hurts to be extra careful. Keep a mindful eye on the positioning of the rear-view mirror, and both the side mirrors and if your car is driven by more than one person, always remember to adjust the driver’s seat as well as the mirrors before you begin.

4. Look both ways: Like crossing a road on foot, an intersection can always be a tricky place for drivers. More than often, most people are always in a hurry and choose to rush past even if there is a red light. It is always safe to look at both sides before zooming through an intersection.

5. Lights: Driving in the dark is always tricky so quick knowledge and good tactics when it comes to using your headlights is a must. While drivers don’t like to be blinded by oncoming traffic but high beams are also useful before taking a sharp turn. Rear lights and indicators should always be used when braking or taking a turn.

6. Don’t overcompensate: Know the imitations of your car and your driving skills. Not everyone has a sports-car nor the expertise of a racer. Avoid fast lanes, maneuver your vehicle in accordance with its capabilities and keep a safe distance from other vehicles.

7. Follow laws: Accidents don’t just affect you, they involve others too. Follow driving laws so that you can avoid putting anyone at risk. Remember, it’s never only the other person’s responsibility; it’s yours as well.

I found Northland Injury Law to be very professional and honest! They kept me up to date on my case. I would highly recommend the whole firm for all your legal needs!!” – Michael T.

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.
