How Car Accidents Commonly Occur in Shawnee, KS 

Most car accidents are preventable. They are caused by human error. When a driver makes a mistake that causes a crash, that driver can and should be held liable for the damages caused by that crash.

Common factors that contribute to the cause of car crashes in Shawnee include, but are not limited to:

  • Speeding and Reckless Driving
  • Drunk Driving
  • Distracted Driving
  • Following Too Closely
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Road Rage
  • Poor Weather Conditions
  • Road Hazards

Never admit fault after a car accident or apologize for the accident. Until you speak with a car accident lawyer in Shawnee, you cannot be sure if your actions contributed to the cause of the crash.

Insurance companies use statements made by car accident victims when they are in shock or they are recovering from injuries to blame victims for causing the accident. If the insurance company can place partial blame on you for the cause of the crash, you cannot recover full compensation for your injuries and damages.

Our Shawnee car accident lawyers protect you from unfair insurance company tactics. We protect you from aggressive claims adjusters who pressure you to make statements and accept low settlement offers. 

Call 816-203-0143 now for your free consultation so we can protect you and fight for fair compensation for your car accident injuries. 

Common Injuries Sustained in Shawnee Car Crashes

The injuries you sustain in a collision may heal in a few weeks to a few months. However, your injuries could require months of painful physical therapy, and you may still have permanent impairments. You cannot know the severity and extent of your injuries until you complete medical treatment. 

If the insurance company pressures you to settle your claim before your doctor releases you, call a Shawnee car accident attorney immediately. The company is attempting to settle your claim for less than it may be worth. You need an attorney to review your claim to ensure you are not being taken advantage of by the insurance company.

Common car accident injuries our attorneys handle include, but are not limited to:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
  • Broken Bones and Fractures
  • Brain and Head Injuries
  • Skull Fractures
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Chest Injuries
  • Burns and Scarring
  • Amputations
  • Internal Organ Failure
  • Wrongful Death

As you are focusing on your healing and recovery, our legal team focuses on maximizing your settlement. We work with you, your physicians, and various experts to ensure that all damages are included in the claim for the maximum value.

How Much is My Shawnee Car Accident Claim Worth?

  • The type of injuries you sustain in the car accident;

  • The value of your financial losses;
