Missouri Truck Accident Lawyer
Liberty Pedestrian Accident Law Firm
Driver inattention is a leading cause of many car accidents. In most cases, however, drivers deny being distracted. Since Missouri is a pure comparative negligence state, damages are reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to a driver. That means that if you suffer $50,000 in damages but are deemed 50% at fault, the most you can recover is $25,000. That's why our personal injury attorneys work with accident investigators in determining how a car accident happened and why.
If road conditions are icy or rainy, we measure skid marks to determine if the person who hit you was driving too fast for the existing road conditions. We also recover information from the crash site to determine if there is any evidence that a driver was eating, drinking, or trying to text a message at the time of a car accident.
If you've been injured due to the negligent inattention of another driver, contact the Kansas City distracted driving attorneys at the Carter Law Offices today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.

Before You Talk to an Insurer, call the Carter Law Offices
Insurance claims adjusters will often try to talk to an injury victim in hopes that they will say something they can use against them later to justify reducing the claim amount paid. Often, a claims adjuster will sound sympathetic, asking questions about how you are doing, as a prelude to questions about the accident.
They will ask to record a statement of what happened in the accident, but any thing you say during that statement will be used against you to question your credibility. If you hire us at represent you, an insurance company must contact our office. As personal injury attorneys, we're familiar with the kinds of tactics used by insurers and are prepared to protect your rights and interests.
