Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys

I was hurt in a Kansas City drunk driving accident, but the other driver refused to take a breathalyzer test. Should I still contact a Kansas City personal injury attorney? Can I still recover damages?

If you have been hurt in any kind of Kansas City accident then you should contact a Kansas City personal injury lawyer. While it is against the law in Kansas to refuse a breathalyzer test, the lack of breathalyzer tests results may make a criminal drunk driving case less likely. However, it may not affect your ability to bring a civil personal injury lawsuit and recover damages for your injury.
In a civil case, the standard of proof is lower and you do not necessarily need to prove that the other driver was legally drunk at the time of your crash. Instead, you, together with your Kansas City auto accident lawyer, need to prove that the other driver was negligent and that the negligence resulted in your accident injuries.
