Causes of Car Accidents in Kansas City

Kansas City Car Accident Attorney

Some car accidents are simply unavoidable and can only be blamed on bad weather, coincidence or fate, but many are attributable to the actions or negligence of one or more of the drivers involved. When you or a loved one has been hurt in a collision that was caused by the other driver, do not hesitate to contact a Kansas City car accident lawyer from the Montee Law Firm, P.C. With 100 years of combined experience and a track record that includes more than $250 million in verdicts and settlements for our clients, we know how to get the results you need.

Distracted drivers cause a large percentage of collisions, and can be held financially accountable to the victims. Driving is a commonplace, every day activity to most people in Kansas City, and it is easy to forget how dangerous it truly is. If the other driver was taking risks by talking or texting on a cell phone, grooming in the mirror, eating or was distracted in any other way, it may be possible to recover compensation for the injuries you have suffered. We can make use of evidence such as cell phone call records, police reports, witness statements and even the driver's own testimony to establish liability for your accident.

Holding the Other Driver Accountable for Your Accident

Many of the most common causes of car accidents involve traffic violations such as speeding, reckless driving and failure to yield right of way-the laws exist to safeguard drivers and passengers against injury, and the fact that the other driver was in violation may be used to establish fault. A prime example of this is a drunk driving accident, where the victim can point to the fact that the drunk driver broke the law and willingly placed the lives of others at risk. Driving while tired or under the influence of certain prescription medications can similarly be used to fix liability. We will investigate the accident from every angle to accurately determine the causes and submit the strongest possible claim on your behalf.

If you believe that your collision was caused by the other driver, contact a Kansas City car accident lawyer from our firm today for help pursuing the compensation you deserve.
