Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

I was a passenger in a car driven by a drunk driver. I was injured in a Kansas City drunk driving accident when the driver crashed into another vehicle. Do I have rights?

Yes. If you were a passenger in a vehicle driven by a drunk driver and you were injured in a Kansas City drunk driving accident caused by the drunk driver's negligence, you may file a claim against the impaired driver. However, the insurance company or jury may decide that you are partially at fault for your injuries because you willingly got into a motor vehicle with somebody who was intoxicated.

Still,the majority of the negligence lies with the intoxicated driver and you are entitled to insurance compensation for your injuries.
