Why Insurance Carriers Refuse to Settle Car Crash Claims

Car crash injury claims are settled when opposing parties reach a mutual agreement to resolve a case without needing a jury trial.

When the Other Motorist Lies to the Insurance Company

Kansas is a no-fault insurance state, which means that every Kansas automobile policy requires no-fault coverage (personal injury protection benefits), pursuant to which an injured motorist can file a claim through their own policy regardless of who caused a crash.

Kansas is a no-fault insurance state, which means that every Kansas automobile policy requires no-fault coverage (personal injury protection benefits), pursuant to which an injured motorist can file a claim through their own policy regardless of who caused a crash. Nonetheless, if another driver has negligently caused your injuries (in both Missouri and Kansas), the other driver can be held liable for the bodily injuries that they have caused you.

It’s no surprise that negligent drivers are not always forthright about what they were doing at the time of a crash (for example, using their cell phones or speeding). If the driver who causes a crash lies to avoid liability, an injured victim might need to take several steps to protect their claim. One of the most critical steps that a person can take is to review their accident claim with a knowledgeable accident attorney. If you believe that the driver who caused your crash is lying or attempting to distort facts to the insurance carrier, consider the following.

How to Protect Yourself From Drivers Who Lie About Accidents

Fortunately, accident victims can take some steps to establish credibility. This way, you can make sure that you are protected even if the other driver attempts to lie about how an accident occurred:
