Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

A car sped up when it should have slowed down and hit my car, causing me serious injuries. Clearly the driver hit the gas instead of the brake. Do I need a Kansas City auto accident attorney to help me recover damages?

As you well know, a car that speeds up instead of slowing down can create a serious accident. In some cases the accident and injuries may result from a driver hitting the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal, and it is possible that that is what happened in your Kansas City car accident.

However, not all acceleration accidents are caused by driver error. Another potential cause of a car speeding up and colliding with another car is a mechanical failure of the accelerating vehicle. As a victim of a car accident, you may not know whether driver error or a mechanical error caused your accident injuries unless an investigation is completed.

A Kansas City auto accident attorney can ensure that a thorough investigation is done and that the right people are held accountable for your accident injuries. Without the help of a Kansas City car accident attorney, it may be difficult to find out the truth.

Once you know what caused your crash, your Kansas City auto accident lawyer will advocate for your full and fair recovery.
