A number of accidents have occurred in the Independence/Kansas City border area lately. This is due in part to weather, road construction, and/or rubbernecking. People when observing an accident often slow down to take a look at it. This in turn can lead to another accident. This should be an avoidable accident. We should all try to avoid slowing down to take a look at an accident, but it can be tough to do consistently. If you have been rear-ended because someone behind you failed to stop in time, then you should speak with a lawyer about your situation. Call Rocky at 816-353-0009.

An auto accident can occur when you least expect. For instance, you are sitting behind a bus, stopped at a bus stop, when you are unexpectedly rear-ended. This is exactly what happened in one accident in Independence, MO that I am familiar with. A school bus stop was located at the bottom of a hill on 40 Highway in Independence. Early one wintery morning, a school bus was stopped at the bus stop picking up children for school. A driver, in a Chevy, on his way to work was stopped behind the school bus. Another car came along and rear-ended the Chevy. The driver of the Chevy avoided being pushed into the school bus by keeping his foot on the brake. However, the school bus drove off, apparently not realizing an accident had occurred.

The driver that caused the accident later stated he was unaware that there had been a bus stopped in the road. The driver was negligent, because he failed to keep a careful look out in regards to where he was going. Fortunately, the negligent driver had auto insurance.

If you have been in an accident in Independence, MO, then you should contact an attorney to discuss your accident.
