What do I need for a Lee’s Summit Auto Accident?

The Lee’s Summit Prosecutor’s office will want to ensure there are no victims who have not received compensation for their damages. So, you will need either proof that insurance has paid the property damage and auto accident injuries, or a statement from the victim that they are not claiming further car accident damages.

When your Lee’s Summit car crash occurs, call your own insurance company, make a statement to them (but not the opposing persons’ insurer), file a claim, and continue to cooperate with your insurer.

At some point, your auto accident in Lee’s Summit will be resolved. You will want to get a letter from your insurance claims adjuster indicating the insurance claim has been resolved and that insurance paid. Get a copy of that letter, along with your Lee’s Summit traffic ticket, as well as the money to the Lee’s Summit Lawyer, and we will resolve your case. You will in all likelihood not need to show up for court.

Lee’s Summit Municipal Court is different than other courts in handling auto accident cases. For example, defendants twenty-five years or younger must typically complete an approved driving school before they are available to keep it off of their record. Call our law offices to find out what driving school is approved at that particular time.

Lee’s Summit Municipal Court is also different in that it looks at your criminal record, your driving record, and your case history in Lee’s Summit before the Lee’s Summit Prosecutor will recommend a plea negotiation. This means people with no criminal history likely get a more lenient result where people with a long criminal history get a more harsh result. Thus, if you ask different people who are charged with the same offense in Lee’s Summit Municipal Court, they will receive a very different result.
