Accidents happen every day, all over the United States. The National Transportation Safety board reported that 2.74 million Americans were injured in vehicle accidents in 2019 (the most recent year for which data is available.) Nearly 37,000 were killed. Even careful drivers can have accidents, so it’s important to know what to do when it happens to you.

Here are the top 4 steps to take if you are involved in a vehicle accident:

  1. Call the police. You will need a police report containing certain important information about the accident. This may be used to determine fault and will be important in any court proceedings.
  2. Exchange insurance information. 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. 
  3. Seek medical attention. 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. It is important to receive proper medical care for injuries immediately.
  4. Find a personal lawyer in Kansas City: If you or your passengers have been injured, or if you have injured someone else, you need a lawyer, especially if criminal charges may result. Having an attorney on your side from the beginning can save time and trouble.

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.
