Insurance Issues

Disputed Liabiilty

Many auto collision victims are unable to obtain reimbursement after a collision because of disputed liability. Insurance corporations and courts alike decide who should be responsible—or liable—for an event by applying the law of negligence to the circumstances of each claim. If it turns out that you negligently caused the accident, you may be denied payment for your property loss and your damages.


 While hiring an attorney is not essential to successfully recover for losses through the insurance claims process, having a proficient attorney by your side can decrease your anxiety while improving your chances of recovering an advantageous settlement. At McCollum Injury Law Firm, we concentrate on getting our clients the compensation they deserve, whether through an insurance case or a suit. 

Policy Exclusions

Many drivers believe that their car insurance policy gives more extensive coverage than it does. Unless you have obtained comprehensive coverage for your car, there may be various situations under which you hold no coverage. You can find these exclusions to your coverage in your insurance contract: a lengthily and often difficult to understand the document that describes the exact scope of your insurance company’s coverage.

Lapsed Policy

Most coverage for car collisions that involve other cars or commercial carriers like taxis, Ubers, buses, and semi-trucks comes from insurance companies. It is rare for a car accident or an industrial vehicle accident case to go all the way to trial. Usually, the at-fault driver’s insurance company settles with the injured parties. But this doesn’t imply that everyone always gets the settlement they justify. The insurance case process can be complicated, and some insurance corporations can be questionable when it comes to paying collision victims.

Failure to Notify

Policyholders must notify insurance companies of accidents in a reasonable amount of time after the accident happened. If that didn’t happen, the insurance company may claim it didn’t have an opportunity to investigate the accident and may deny the claim.

Car Accidents Happen in an instant, but the injuries can last a Lifetime

Driving in Missouri or Kansas, the odds are high that you or a family member will be hurt in a car accident at some point in time. If being injured in the car crash isn’t bad enough, the way insurance companies can be worse. Insurance companies try their best to deny or reduce paying your claim, and if they must pay for your injury claim they often delay paying for as long they can. It is essential to be well prepared and knowledgeable about the insurance process to understand that what you do after the car accident will make a difference in your recovery.  Speak with an experienced Kansas City car accident lawyer at McCollum Injury Law Firm about your case at 816-474-2060.

Do these things if you are in a crash (9 steps)

  1. Stop your car and wait for the police. There is virtually never a good reason to leave the scene of an accident.
  2. Check and make sure that you and the passengers of your vehicle are okay and then see if anyone else was injured from the wreck. If anyone was injured, call for an ambulance immediately.
  3. Don’t move someone who is badly injured unless they are in danger and could be injured worse leaving them where they are. If you are hurt and are not in serious danger, it is best to stay in your vehicle until medical help shows up.
  4. Leave your vehicle where it is. Do not move the car unless it is a clear who was at fault, for example, you were rear ended. Then only move your car if it is blocking a busy road. If you are in doubt, leave your vehicle where it is until the police arrive and tell you to move it.
  5. Go to the hospital and have your injuries evaluated by a doctor. The sooner you get medical attention the better it will be for you and for your case. Insurance companies frequently say that you must not have been injured because you waited a long time before you sought medical treatment. Avoid this insurance ploy and be seen by a doctor as soon as possible after the accident.
  6. Take pictures: Get your cell phone out and snap as many pictures of the vehicles, skid marks, traffic signs, and other points of view that each vehicle would have had prior to the wreck.
  7. Preserve all evidence and try to get the identity of witnesses who may have seen what happened and help you explain who was at fault. Get the other drivers name, address, and insurance information and if possible the car owners information as well.
  8. Cooperate with the police and tell them what happened.
  9. Do not give any statements to any other “investigators.”  Do not give a recorded statement to anyone without speaking to an experienced Kansas City car accident lawyer first.
