3 Mistakes Your Kansas City Truck Lawyer Wants You to Avoid in the Weeks Following Your Crash

Everybody probably has something to say about what you should do after a Kansas City truck accident injury. Your aunt’s friend may have a wonderful doctor you should speak to or a coworker may have been in a truck accident before and want you to do exactly what he did, for example. While everyone means well, and may have useful information, it is important to consult with a Kansas City truck accident lawyer as soon as you can after a crash so that your lawyer can guide you through the days and weeks ahead while protecting your legal rights.


Some of the Biggest Mistakes You Can Make After a Kansas City Truck Wreck Include:

  • Speaking Directly to an Insurance Company or the Trucking Company without Representation. Insurance companies and trucking companies want to limit your recovery. While their representatives might appear sympathetic they are, in fact, trying to protect the bottom line of their employers. Anything that you say can to an insurance company or trucking company, and most likely will, be used against you.
  • Not Following Your Doctor’s Orders. It is important to follow the treatment plan set out by your doctor primarily so that you make the best possible medical recovery. However, it is also important to follow your doctor’s orders to prevent the trucking company from arguing that your injuries must not have been that significant or that you further injured yourself by failing to follow your doctor’s orders.
  • Not Calling a Kansas City Truck Accident Lawyer. If you are serious about a recovery then it is important to contact a Kansas City truck crash attorney whose job it is to protect your rights and fight for your fair and equitable recovery.
