Driving Safely in Construction Zones

Some parts of Missouri or Kansas always seem to be under construction. Main Street in Kansas City, Missouri, has been under construction for years now, and so has Wornall Road, especially in the Waldo area.

Assessing Liability After Sideswipe Collisions

Sideswipe collisions are unpredictable. They can result in minimal damage, but they can also lead to serious injuries.

New Vehicle Technology Can Serve as a Distraction

A great deal can go wrong in the aftermath of a Missouri accident, particularly if you do not utilize an accident lawyer’s assistance. Not only is there the risk that you might fall prey to certain pitfalls, but these mistakes become more costly the more serious your injuries are. If you are injured in an accident, you need to proceed with care. An experienced personal injury attorney in Missouri can help guide you through the aftermath of an accident and help you pursue the maximum compensation you deserve for your losses. With some help, you can avoid these five common mistakes.

Postponing Medical Treatment

You should make sure to receive medical attention as soon as possible after an accident. You could choose to leave the crash scene in an ambulance to seek medical care, or you could drive yourself to your own doctor’s office later that day. It is always best to get checked out right away. Your body is under a substantial amount of stress following a car accident, bike accident, slip, and fall, or any other type of accident. The rush of adrenaline can cloud your mind and prevent you from feeling the pain of your injuries. Some internal injuries are not immediately apparent. You will not know the extent of your injuries until a doctor looks you over and offers a diagnosis. Any gap between an accident and medical treatment gives insurance companies arguments they can make to reduce the value of a claim (for example, arguing that an injured person’s treatment was not related to an accident).

Missouri Accident: Continued Usage of Social Media

Insurance carriers investigate accident cases, which often means that they will inspect your social media activity. Even seemingly benign social media posts can prove detrimental to the outcome of your case. For example, I’ve represented an injured person who maintained an Instagram account and after the accident continued posting photos of her workouts. Although these photos were taken before the accident, the insurance company argued (as it did appear) that the photos were all taken post-accident. Thus, always remember that any photo you post of yourself could be used to contradict your claims of injury.

Sharing Details About Your Accident With Others

Sharing details about your crash applies to in-person conversations as well as social media. The people you discuss your accident with at the scene might end up testifying at your trial. Insurance carriers can even require statements from these parties if they provide contradictory stories about the accident in which you were injured. Avoid accidentally admitting fault by just not saying much at all to others at the scene of the crash.

Representing Yourself

Most people are not able to take on the insurance industry without legal representation from an attorney who only practices personal injury law. The stakes are just too high, especially when injuries are significant. If you are facing medical bills and lost wages from time taken off work to heal, then you cannot afford to pursue compensation without the help of a skilled legal professional. Your lawyer will help ensure your rights are protected throughout the personal injury claim process so that you can pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
