Underinsured Motorist Car Accident Claims in Kansas City

How a Kansas City Car Accident Attorney from Our Firm Can Help

If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you have a right to demand compensation from the other driver. All drivers in Kansas City are required by law to carry an auto insurance policy, to shield themselves from financial liability in the event of a car accident, but a large percentage of them choose to purchase the absolute bare minimum coverage. This attempt to save money may work in the short term, but when an accident happens, the driver is often forced to pay the difference between the policy coverage and the true value of the claim.

In both Kansas and Missouri, the minimum amount of liability coverage required by law is $25,000 per person for bodily injury, and $50,000 per accident for bodily injury. While this is sufficient to cover many car accident injuries, if you have suffered catastrophic harm such as a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury, it may not be enough in your case. Rather than settle for the compensation you can receive from the other driver's insurance policy, let a Kansas City car accident attorney from the Montee Law Firm, P.C. help you sue for damages to recover the amount you truly deserve.

When the Other Driver's Insurance Is Not Enough

An attorney from our firm can help you sue the other driver in court with the goal of claiming fair compensation for your injuries. If the court awards a judgment in your favor, you may be able to secure a wage garnishment or a lien on the other driver's vehicle or home, which you could use to recover the money you need to pay for your medical bills, your lost income and pain and suffering. We have helped our clients recover more than $250 million in jury verdicts and settlements, and are ready to begin work on your case today.

Contact a Kansas City car accident lawyer from our firm if you have been injured by a driver with insufficient insurance to cover your claim and want help recovering a fair settlement.
