Common Causes of Car Accidents in Kansas

Our firm represents injured clients in all types of car accident cases caused by a wide variety of circumstances. We believe that providing you with compassionate representation every step of the way and really getting to know you allows us to better represent your best interests and understand the cause of the accident at its source. In turn, we will be better equipped to hold the accountable party liable for the damages.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Unsafe road conditions
  • Defective auto parts
  • Traffic law violations
  • Reckless driving

The thread among all of these causes is preventability. When people act safely and accordingly, the vast majority of car accidents can be completely avoided. Enforcing liability for damages through a claim can help people correct their driving behaviors and prevent similar collisions from occurring in the future.

What to Do After Being in a Car Accident

Your actions immediately following a car accident can heavily influence your chances of recovering a fair, maximized compensation amount. At Ralston, Pope & Diehl, LLC, our Topeka car accident attorneys want the people of our communities to be prepared for anything, even if they never become our clients. In case you ever find yourself blindsided by a reckless driver, try to keep the following list of steps to take after a car accident in mind.

  1. Check on everyone for serious injuries: Call 911 if someone is seriously injured or there is significant debris littering the street. If your vehicle can be moved safely, pull over as far as possible from the road.
  2. Take pictures of all injuries and vehicular damage: Be thorough, as the more information you gather, the more you can use for your claim later.
  3. Do not apologize or say you are sorry: Any sort of apology can be misconstrued as an admission of guilt by the other driver’s insurance company, making it easier for them to place liability on your shoulders.
  4. Collect or request accident reports from any emergency responders at the scene, including paramedics, police officers, and firefighters.
  5. If you were not given emergency medical treatment for your injuries, arrange to see a doctor as soon as possible. You should find a way to urgent care for same-day evaluations. You may have subtle injuries that need to be diagnosed. Delaying any medical treatment can also increase your own liability for your injuries in a subsequent claim.
  6. Call a personal injury attorney as soon as you are in a safe and sound position. Retaining legal help early in your case ensures nothing important will be overlooked.
