Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

As a Kansas City car crash lawyer, what documents do you suggest that I keep in my car in case I am hurt in an accident?

Though one can never truly be prepared for the unexpected, such as a car accident, you can take steps to protect yourself in case an accident occurs. As a Kansas City car crash lawyer, I often recommend that people keep the following documentation on their person, in their wallet or in their car every time they get behind the wheel:

  • A valid driver’s license.
  • Car registration.
  • Proof of automobile insurance.
  • A cell phone programmed with an emergency contact so that authorities know who to call if you are unable to speak.
  • The name and phone number of your primary care physician.
  • A list of any medical conditions you have.
  • A list of any medications you take.
  • A list of any drug allergies.
  • Your health insurance information.
  • The name and number of your Kansas City car accident lawyer.

This information certainly won’t prevent an accident from occurring, but it could make what happens at the scene of the accident and immediately after the crash smoother.
