What to Do After a Car Accident

If you are involved in a Kansas City car accident, do not panic. Our staff is highly experienced in dealing with several types of vehicle accidents. These include truck accidents, collisions involving motorcyclists, and cases involving distracted or drunk driving. We encourage settlements during the discovery process, but will uphold your claim in court when necessary. 

Our staff is committed to prosecuting your case while making as few court appearances as possible. We encourage all clients to stay calm and levelheaded during the accident discovery process. Never speak about who is at fault or why, and do not speculate about accident details. For instance, do not share suspicions that another driver was intoxicated or distracted, even if evidence points to those conclusions. However, you should speak to fellow witnesses and gather as much accurate information as possible. 

What to Take Note of After Your Kansas City Car Accident

  • Road conditions
  • Vehicle conditions
  • How many vehicles and drivers were involved
  • Injuries, no matter how minor – note all bumps and bruises
  • Weather conditions, particularly if heavy precipitation is involved

Fowler Pickert Eisenmenger Norfleet recommends taking pictures when possible, as photographic evidence is more reliable than verbal testimony. Additionally, get medical attention as soon as possible. Some injuries don’t show up until weeks after the car accident, so it’s important your physician gives you a thorough exam. He or she can tell you what symptoms to watch for – bruises, residual soreness, or reduced ability to use certain limbs or digits. A full medical exam will also determine the presence of any internal injuries. These may require operations or physical and occupational therapy, which may influence your case’s outcome.
