This May we celebrate 5 years as a Kansas City personal injury law firm.

#JustDriveKC Distracted Driving Campaign

Last year, more than 40,000 people were killed on roadways, which is a 6% increase from 2015. Of these deaths, many were caused by distracted driving. Our team is passionate about ending this epidemic through our work of supporting victims in these 100% preventable collisions.

Our #JustDriveKC campaign is our movement to end distracted driving and features a variety of efforts including personal injury attorney Matt Meyerkord speaking throughout the Kansas City community to build awareness around this meaningful campaign.

To do your part in ending distracted driving, try these easy steps:

  1. Put your phone in the trunk.
  2. Designate a texter.
  3. Pull over.
  4. Get a ride.
  5. Know what distracted driving does to your attention.
  6. Take a stand.
