Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, but nothing can prepare you for the devastating effects the moment may bring to you and your family. In some cases, both parties are lucky to walk away unscathed, but in other cases, the injuries can be severe and life-altering.
Car accident injuries are no joke. They can often lead to painful injuries, extensive medical care and medical bills, and permanent injury and disability. Sometimes, an extended hospital stay is needed, preventing you from working or caring for loved ones, resulting in financial burdens and uncertainties.
If your accident was caused all or in part by another driver’s carelessness or negligence, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Our car accident lawyers at Siro Smith Dickson PC work very hard to help you and your family through this difficult time. We have the experience and expertise needed to get you the compensation you deserve.
We are ready to help you get your life back on track. With over 4 decades of experience, we have helped many car accident victims receive just compensation for their injuries.
Filing a car accident claim or an insurance claim might seem pretty easy and straightforward, but that is often not the case.
An accident claim could require a lot of paperwork, and you cannot afford mistakes. It is unlikely that you know all of the laws that pertain to your situation. But a car accident lawyer has experience and a deep understanding of the law in this area.
If you decide to take on the insurance company on your own, they may try to get you to settle too early, before you know the full extent of your injuries. Once you settle with the insurer, it is forever. You cannot go back asking for more money if your damages are worse than you knew or anticipated. Sensing that you are under financial pressures due to the accident they might make you a quick, low-ball settlement offer. You may not be fully aware of the true extent of your injuries, or know how much your injuries and case are worth. But we as car accident lawyers with years of experience in this area do know how to fully and fairly evaluate your injuries and damages, and this will go a long way in empowering you to make informed decisions.
Hiring a qualified car accident lawyer will help your case move along faster as we collect the information needed to make an informed settlement decision. You can focus on getting better while they do the heavy lifting and hard work to get you the justice you deserve.
At Siro Smith Dickson PC, we will fight for you. Let us handle your car accident claim. We will gather witness statements, put insurance companies on notice, get medical records, and leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice for you and your family.

“I know how hard you worked for me. Thank you. I will always be grateful especially for your kindness and concern. You (all of you) helped carry me through some hard times. God Bless.”
“At a health facility, I went to the restroom. There was water on the floor and no caution signs. I fell, breaking my hip and shoulder. Mr. Siro came to my home to get the necessary information to file suit. After the suit was filed, I was kept informed by phone and mail. The whole experience was pleasant and professional.”
“As a professional, I worked with many attorneys over the years and Rik was the exception to some commonly held views of lawyers. He communicated well, was on time for meetings, met deadlines, and returned phone calls. No staged drama during depositions or court. Very professional and effective, highly recommend.”
“I would highly recommend Raymond Dake (or Siro Smith Dickson) and his team. They were extremely helpful. They talked me through the process and communicated well along the way. They listened to my needs and followed through. They are the ones to get the job done for you. Thank you for all your hard work.”
"If you are looking for attorneys with a great reputation and commitment you should call the team at Siro Smith Dickson."
“When I initially contacted Siro Smith Dickson, I was not sure that there was enough evidence to support my case. They were able to find information that I never knew existed. They believed in my case and more importantly believed in me. Thank you, Siro Smith Dickson, for the amazing result; my life has greatly been changed because of your dedication.”
“One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing a qualified attorney who will keep you informed and put your needs first making sure that justice is served.”
Another car accident law to be aware of is the “comparative fault” system in Kansas City. This comes into play when both parties are found responsible for the car accident.
For example, if you were seriously injured in a Kansas City car accident and your case makes it to court. The jury after viewing all evidence decides that the other driver is responsible, but also allocates a portion of blame to you. What happens then? The compensation you receive is affected.
If you were to receive a compensation of $100,000 and you were found 10% responsible for the accident, you will now receive $90,000. This means your percentage of fault will be removed from your compensation. But if you are found 50% or more at fault, you will not recover anything. The injury claim is rendered invalid, no matter how severe the injuries.
Filing a car accident claim or an insurance claim might seem pretty easy and straightforward. But that is often not the case. A car accident claim could require a lot of paperwork and you cannot afford mistakes. It is unlikely that you know all of the laws that pertain to your situation. But a car accident lawyer will have a deep understanding of the law.
If you decide to take on insurance companies on your own, they may try to delay, offer you a settlement that would be too insulting to look at, or even deny completely. You may not even be aware of just how much your injuries are worth. But a car accident lawyer would know, and this will go a long way in making informed decisions.
Hiring a qualified car accident lawyer will help your case move along faster and more progressively. All you need to do is focus on getting better while they do all the heavy lifting and hard work to get you the justice you deserve.
