Categorized as Auto Accidents

Kansas City, MO (July 15, 2021) – A two-car accident that caused injuries to one person took place on the morning of Thursday, July 15th on an interstate in Platte County.

A report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol shows that the accident took place at about 8:00 a.m. in the southbound lanes of Interstate 29 in the area of the eastbound on-ramp to Interstate 435.

Officials said that, for reasons that have yet to be determined, a 26-year-old male from St. Joseph lost control of his southbound 2013 Ford Taurus and crashed into the back end of a 2017 Hyundai Elantra.

Officers stated that both vehicles were insured and both drivers were properly restrained when the vehicles collided. The Taurus endured a moderate degree of damage while the Elantra was extensively damaged during the impact. Both vehicles had to be towed away from the scene.

The driver of the Elantra, a 27-year-old female from Kansas City, suffered crash-related injuries believed to be non-critical.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents With Injuries in Kansas City

Nearly 40% of all automobile collisions in the state of Missouri end with some kind of personal injury. It is, sadly, very common for the victims involved in these car accidents to receive injuries that, at first, appear to be very minor, leaving the victim to believe that any additional medical attention is not necessary. Even injuries that appear insignificant, such as the early stages of whiplash, can suddenly develop into something much more serious.

When victims receive injuries in auto accidents brought on by another person’s disregard for the laws of the road, Missouri permits them to file a claim of personal injury against the liable motorist for financial reimbursement. Victims should seek the guidance of a car accident attorney in Missouri who has decades of practice in how to handle personal injury laws.

An estimated 10% of motor vehicle accident victims who eventually receive a diagnosis diagnosed of whiplash initially believed they had succeeded in escaping injury during their crash until they began experiencing symptoms that were serious enough to disrupt their day-to-day lives.

A skilled and accomplished vehicle injury accident attorney will implement the most modernized techniques of reviewing every aspect of your car accident, making absolutely certain that the careless party is brought to account, and guaranteeing that you receive the full amount of financial compensation that Missouri law entitles you to.
