Insurance Companies Keep Secrets
In this five-part series, I will discuss how insurance companies seek to keep secret information that is harmful to them and helpful to injured persons’ seeking compensation for their injuries. Insurance companies owe no duty to volunteer information to injured persons not insured by them. What this means is the insurance company is not obligated to give an injured person information that would make their case worth more than the insurance company is offering to pay.
Insurance companies want injured persons to be uninformed when it comes to settling their personal injury cases. Insurance companies do not want to be transparent when it comes to policy limits, types of insurance coverage such as first party coverage, history of the insured’s car, driving history of its insured, types of claims available, or how uninsured or underinsured coverage works. That is why it is important to seeking the counsel of a good personal injury attorney.

KC Personal Injury Lawyer or Attorney
Have you been injured in an accident such as a car wreck or truck wreck in the KC area? If so, then you may have a personal injury claim that you are entitled to recover from. Under the law, you may be able to seek reimbursement for pain and suffering as well unpaid medical bills from the person that caused the accident. In car and truck accidents, there may be insurance available to cover your damages. However, insurance companies try to settle for cheap with injured persons before they can retain an attorney or lawyer. That is why it is important to get in touch with an attorney or lawyer before the insurance adjusters start trying to pressure you into settling for less than your claim is worth.

Raytown Personal Injury Lawyer: Construction Zones
It is that time of the year where there is construction going on the roads and highways in and around Raytown. These construction zones create unexpected hazards as well as frustrations for drivers. In a number of situations, construction zones require extensive detours that lead drivers into areas that they may not be familiar with. A number of these detours have involved the use of streets that are not designed for such additional traffic as may be routed onto them. This can create choke points as well as situations where vehicles going in the opposite direction need to use the same stretch of road. When this happens, it is important for drivers to share the road and not become frustrated by the driving situation. Otherwise, an accident may result including a head on collision that can result in personal injuries to occupants of the vehicles. Caution, therefore, is the watch word of the day. If you have an accident in a construction zone or on a detour caused by a construction zone in the Raytown area, then you should contact a Raytown Personal Injury Lawyer.

Raytown Accident Lawyer
There seems to be more cars and trucks on the road these days. That means more congested streets and roads in Raytown and the potential for more car and truck accidents. Besides congestion, another contributing factor to the increase of accidents is the wide spread use of cellphones for talking and texting.
Cellphones are so convenient. Cellphones have become an integral part of peoples’ lives. It is hard to quit using them when a person enters a vehicle to drive. Yet that is what they should do, particularly in the case of texting while driving, if a person is to reduce his or her chances of causing or contributing to causing a car or truck accident.
If an accident is caused by a talking or texting driver, then that driver can be held responsible for the damages of any other person in the accident. The guilty driver will also likely be charged with a crime, because of causing the accident. If you or loved one has been injured in a car or truck accident in Raytown, then you should contact a Raytown lawyer today for advice.

Have you been in a “slid into accident” caused by another vehicle on ice covered roads in the Kansas City area?
If so, then you should seek the opinion of a personal injury attorney in the Kansas City area. A local personal injury attorney will be familiar with the local laws and will likely know the area where you had your accident.
Ice on roads can be a major factor in accidents around the metro area. Drivers failing to provide adequate braking distances between cars can result in “slid into crashes.” It is the job of each driver to keep a careful lookout for possible slide situations. When a driver fails to do this, then it may be considered negligence under the law.
In some “slid into accidents”, video may be available of the accident such as from a stoplight camera. Such video could make or break the case. That is why you need legal representation to help you retain any useful videos before they are taped over or deleted.
