Frequently Asked Questions

Answers from a Kansas City Car Accident Attorney

How do I know whether I can claim damages for my accident? Depending on what type of insurance coverage you have, your injuries may or may not be covered by your own policy. If you were injured in a drunk driving accident or a collision caused by a distracted driver, or if the other driver was in any other way at fault, you can claim compensation from the other party's insurance policy.

Can I recover compensation even if the other driver has no insurance? Unlike some attorneys, we do not turn away cases involving uninsured motorists or underinsured motorists. In the event that the driver who caused your car accident injuries does not have a policy to cover your claim, we may still be able to help you secure a wage garnishment or a property lien which could be used to secure the compensation you deserve.

How do you prove that the other driver is at fault? If the other driver failed to take reasonable precaution to avoid your accident, or was driving recklessly or carelessly, you have a right to demand compensation. We look for evidence, such as aggressive driving, to prove that the other driver's negligence is the cause of the accident.

What if there was no other driver-can I still claim a settlement? Many car accidents in Kansas City involve only one driver-the injured party. In this case, it is often possible to recover compensation through an auto product liability lawsuit, such as if the accident was caused by defective car parts, or by suing for road defects which caused the accident.

How much can I receive in a settlement? You are entitled to claim full compensation for every aspect of the impact that your injuries have had on your life, which can include everything from your past and future medical expenses to your lost income, reduced earning power and even the pain and suffering you have experienced.

How much will it cost to hire an attorney? The attorneys of the Montee Law Firm, P.C. work on a contingency fee basis, so you can hire us without paying a dime up front. We will only charge you a fee if we are successful in obtaining financial compensation for you.

Do I have to hire an attorney? Retaining a Kansas City car accident attorney to represent you in your claim is highly advisable, as it allows you to level the playing field between you and the insurance company. Individuals who choose to represent themselves are frequently paid far less than they deserve, or even have their claims denied outright, but when you have an attorney on your side, the insurance company will know that you are serious about claiming the compensation you are due, and is more likely to pay you without a fight. In the event that your claim is denied, we can take the case to court, and could even represent you in an insurance bad faith lawsuit if appropriate.
