You’ve been in a car accident in Kansas and the other driver fled the scene. Today we are going to talk about a situation that happens all to often. You are in a car accident and injured and the at-fault driver leaves without exchanging information. What are you suppose to do? Who's going to pay?
First, we will want to identify any witnesses to the wreck and gather information that will help identify the driver who left. Second, with that information we can pinpoint the appropriate insurance companies who will be responsible for paying for the accident. In Kansas, your initial claim goes through your car insurance company. Thereafter there are a couple of possibilities for recovering:
You may need surgery, ER visits, physical therapy, medicine, etc…In addition you may have medical coverage, such as MediCare, that must be notified to make sure they are aware of the claim and can be reimbursed for any medical expenses paid. Finally, after care is completed we send a demand package to the insurance company. A demand package is simply all of our evidence placed together, with a letter telling why its insured is legally responsible. Shortly thereafter we have been able to recover all the money legally available, to include six figure settlement for our clients in the past.
Why am I telling you this? You’re probably reading this blog because you have been in an accident or know someone who has. We have answers to your questions and would like share those with you. I want you to pick up the phone right now and call me, Attorney T. Morton at 913.602.7288.
