Kansas City Car Accident Attorney

Getting into a car accident is something that all of us hope to avoid, yet so many of us will experience in our lifetimes. We know that there are risks when we hit the road each day and we know you do what you can to stay safe. However, you cannot control the negligent or careless actions of other people around you.

When you need a Kansas City car accident attorney, Peddicord & Townsend LLC is standing by to help. Our team will investigate your case and work to ensure that you are compensated for all of your crash-related expenses.

So Many Things Can Go Wrong

We all know crashes are a possibility, but we want to bring you the actual statistics from the latest reporting year in Missouri:

  • 153,422 total crashes
  • 923 crash fatalities
  • 57,270 crash injuries

Looking at those numbers gives us a sobering perspective and helps us realize the reality. While many crash injuries are minor, we need to point out that even minor injuries can lead to major medical bills.

How many families can afford a preventative X-ray and MRI to the tune of over $5,000?

For the more severe crash injuries, the costs can lead to victims being placed into financial jeopardy. Consider the following vehicle crash injuries:

Each of these injuries is going to come with considerable medical care needs and possibly even long periods of rehabilitation. Beyond the medical costs, families will be left grappling with lost wages if a victim can not work due to their injuries.

Why They Happen?

In many cases, the negligence of another driver causes a crash.

  • Alcohol-impaired drivers were responsible for 122 traffic crash fatalities and 2,607 injuries in the latest reporting year.
  • Those distracted by their phones, other devices, or other people while driving are much more likely to cause a crash.
  • Speeding and reckless driving is a choice and causes the most crash injuries.

There are also times when vehicle crashes are caused by poor vehicle maintenance. This is still negligence on the part of the vehicle owner. If the vehicle in question is a commercial vehicle, then the company or agency who owns the vehicle needs to be held accountable as well.

In The Aftermath Of A Crash

If you or a loved one have been injured in a car crash that was caused by another person’s negligent or careless behavior, please seek legal assistance immediately.
