Paola, KS asked in Car Accidents for Kansas

Q: Do I need to get a release of liability if I was involved in an accident with a driver that did not have a driverlicense

I had no insurance at the time but I should not be the only one held accountable for the accident nor have to have a release of liability if we both were at fault. He did not use a turn signal which caused the accident

A: A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you're able to have a meaningful consult with a local attorney, it's advisable to have the other party sign a release form if you are negotiating any kind of payment. As far as sorting out the respective percentages of liability, an attorney could probably advise on your best course of action after learning additional details. Good luck
