Skilled advocacy for Blue Springs car, truck, and motorcycle accident victims

Blue Springs has a lot of traffic every day. We’re less than 20 miles from Kansas City, and we’re one of the biggest cities in Missouri. Whether you’re driving on Interstate 70, US 40, Route 7, Adams Dairy Parkway, or traveling on a less-traveled road – a vehicle accident can change your life in an instant. Drivers who fail to follow the traffic laws, drive too fast for traffic or weather conditions, or act unwisely deserve to be held accountable for the injuries and fatalities they cause.

Drivers should never drive while intoxicated, distracted, or fatigued. Sadly, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, in 2022 there were 5,280 vehicle crashes in Jackson County that resulted in injuries. Ninety-five of these crashes were fatal. More than 13,000 crashes involved property damage.

Our Blue Springs car accident lawyers file claims against all responsible parties including:

  • The driver of the car, truck, motorcycle, or another vehicle
  • The owner of the vehicle if different than the driver
  • An employer who gave a negligent driver permission to use the vehicle
  • A trucking company – including the company that requested the shipment, the company that received the shipment, a trucking broker who arranged the shipment, the owner of the truck, truck maintenance companies, and other businesses
  • Construction companies that fail to warn drivers about the construction work or hire drivers whose negligence causes an accident
  • A governmental entity that had responsibility for the design, maintenance, or control of a dangerous roadway or dangerous conditions such as malfunctioning traffic lights
  • Other defendants such as anyone licensed to sell liquor who sells alcohol to a minor or someone who was visibly intoxicated – and the person served causes a drunk-driving accident

Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys handles all types of crashes in Blue Springs including head-on accidents, rear-end collisions, broadsides, multi-vehicle accidents, single-vehicle accidents, jackknives, rollovers, wide-turn accidents, accidents due to defective vehicle parts, and other accidents.

Can I file a claim if I’m hurt while on the premises of a Blue Springs property owner?

Property owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are safe for anyone who has the right to be on the property. Property owners are often liable if anyone in Blue Spring slips and falls, has an elevator accident, is assaulted, or is struck by an object. The owners owe a duty of care to regularly inspect their property for known or possible dangers, to make timely repairs, to warn users of possible dangers, and to respond to complaints.

The duty of care applies to retail owners, restaurants, apartment complexes, businesses that provide services, and all other types of for-profit owners. Non-profit owners who hold meetings or provide services can also be held responsible for any accidents that occur. Even your neighbor has a duty to shovel his/her sidewalk and repair cracks or holes in the sidewalks.

Our Blue Springs personal injury lawyers are skilled at showing who the owner is, why the property was dangerous, what accident happened, and why the accident caused your injuries. We seek compensation for all your economic and personal damages from the owners, repair companies, and any other responsible parties.

Liability for nursing home abuse and neglect in Blue Springs

Seniors and families have the right to trust that nursing homes in and near Blue Springs will provide competent, friendly care for our elder residents. Sadly, many nursing homes fail to vet their staff, fail to respect the rights of their residents, and fail to create and implement safety protocols.

Our Blue Springs nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers file claims on behalf of seniors and families when nursing homes prioritize profit over safety. We file claims for physical, emotional, sexual, and financial abuse. Examples of abuse include bedsores, malnutrition, isolation, failure to give the resident the necessary medications, nonconsensual sexual contact, stealing, and other types of abuse. We also file claims when nursing home negligence causes a resident to slip and fall or fail to take his/her medications.

At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we understand that legal claims help the seniors, families of the seniors, and other seniors in the nursing home. We file personal injury claims. We also file wrongful death claims if a loved one died due to nursing home abuse or neglect.

Our lawyers also explain the federal and state rights each resident has. We help families identify the symptoms of abuse and neglect. Call us if you or a loved one is not receiving the care, support, and respect each nursing home resident deserves.

Our Blue Springs personal injury lawyers handle construction accidents

Building and road construction throughout Blue Springs seem to be happening all the time. New construction work helps employ many workers, provides better transportation routes, and improves the different parts of the community. Repair work helps ensure that fundamental services continue.

There is a major downside to construction work. Construction accidents are all too common. Many workers suffer injuries on the job. Many drivers and passengers are injured because construction companies don’t direct cars, trucks, and pedestrians away from the construction sites. Some construction accidents happen because the machinery, equipment, and tools are defective. Common construction accidents include vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, electrical accidents, being struck by objects, and accidents due to fatigue.

Our Blue Springs attorneys handle personal injury claims, product liability claims, workers’ compensation claims, and wrongful death claims – depending on how the accident happened, the severity of the injuries, and whether the worker was an employee or a non-employee. We file claims against all responsible parties including construction company owners, contractors, subcontractors, manufacturers, architects, engineers, and other defendants.

Contact us now if you were injured at a Blue Springs construction accident, or a loved one was killed at a construction work site.

Your right to file a workers’ compensation claim in Blue Springs, Missouri

Missouri workers’ compensation laws are different than personal injury claims. Only employees can file a workers’ compensation claim. In personal injury claims, the accident victim must prove that the defendant was negligent or is strictly liable for the accident. There is no need to prove fault in a workers’ compensation case.

There are a few trade-offs for not needing to prove fault. While employees who are injured on the job are entitled to payment of all their medical bills, employees cannot seek compensation for their pain and suffering. Generally, employees who file for worker’s compensation receive temporary disability benefits (about 2/3 of their lost weekly wages). The worker may be entitled to permanent disability benefits depending on the type and severity of  the injuries.

Our Blue Springs workers’ compensation lawyers explain when and how workers can file a workers’ compensation claim – and when a personal injury or product liability claim can be filed. We work with your doctors to help ensure your employer does not force you back to work before you’re ready. We negotiate long-term settlements. When necessary, we try your workers’ compensation claim before a worker’s compensation judge or referee. Call Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys today to assert your right to compensation.

We handle product defect claims

Many accidents in Blue Springs happen because manufacturers prioritize their profits over your safety. At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our personal injury lawyers have the experience and resources to hold manufacturers, distributors, and sellers accountable when their product defects cause injuries or deaths.

Products are considered defective if there is a design flaw, the product is manufactured improperly, or the manufacturer fails to properly warn or educate consumers about why a product is dangerous.

We work with product safety professionals, examine consumer product and vehicle safety recalls, and take other stops to show that a defective product caused you harm. In product defect cases, there is no need to prove negligence. The combination of a product defect and a showing that your injuries (or the death of a loved one) are due to the product defect are generally all you need to file a claim for damages.
