Negligence can take many forms. No matter what circumstances you experienced, if someone else’s acts caused you harm, you have the right to hold him or her accountable. That is what the civil justice system is all about.

At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we always put the needs of our clients first. Our Parkville personal injury lawyers answer all your questions, explain your rights, and guide you through the settlement and trial process. Our lawyers fight to obtain all the compensation accident victims and victims of incompetent care deserve. If a loved one dies, we file wrongful death claims on behalf of the family members. When you need an experienced successful personal injury lawyer on your side, call our lawyers for immediate help.

Why do clients choose our Parkville personal injury lawyers?

Our trial lawyers have the skill and experience to fight for injury victims. We work with investigators, traffic reconstruction experts, industry professionals, the police, and others to help show what caused your injuries, and who is responsible. We work with your physicians and other healthcare professionals to show what injuries you have, what treatments you need, and why your injuries hurt so much.

Our lawyers conduct extensive discovery to question everyone involved. We know when to begin negotiations with the insurance adjustors, and when to try your case in court because the adjusters aren’t offering to pay what they know they owe. Our lawyers handle the complex cases that involve difficult legal issues, multiple defendants, or catastrophic injuries.

Since 1995, our lawyers have been dedicated to fighting for personal injury victims. We don’t handle other practice areas. Personal injury is all we do. Our lawyers assert your claim and demand all the compensation you rightfully deserve. Our motto explains our dedication - "Where Accident Victims and Their Families Come FIRST."

Compassionate advocacy if a loved one is killed due to negligence or someone’s fault

Losing a family member is hard enough in the “best” of circumstances. It’s horrifying when the death could have been prevented. At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our lawyers appreciate how traumatic it is when a loved one dies well before his or her time. We work to protect the rights of the family to file a wrongful death claim while respecting your need to mourn.

At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our Parkville wrongful death lawyers settle many wrongful death cases – but we also do try them in court. In one case, we were able to obtain $1 million on behalf of a family when a runaway truck killed a three-year-old girl. Experts noted that the verdict was the largest verdict to date for the death of a minor child in a Federal Tort Claims Act lawsuit. If a beloved child, parent, or spouse died, our lawyers understand how to prove fault and all the damages that families can claim.

Seasoned lawyers for Parkville car, truck, and motorcycle accident victims

Anyone who drives around Parkville and the large Kansas City metropolitan area understands how congested I-29, I-35, I-49, and I-70 can be. Drivers understand that various US highways, Kansas highways, expressways, and all roads pose a constant danger of serious accidents. Common accidents include broadsides, head-on crashes, multi-vehicle accidents, sideswipes, and rear-end collisions. Trucks may jackknife or rollover. Motorcycle spills are often deadly.

Car, truck, and motorcycle drivers should be held liable if they speed, pass improperly, violate any traffic laws, or if they’re just not driving responsibly. Drivers deserve to be held accountable if they text while driving, drink and drive, or drive while they’re tired.

More than just the driver may be liable. At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our Parkville personal injury lawyers file claims against anyone and everyone who caused your crash. We often file claims against parts manufacturers. We may file a claim against the state for poor road design. Our lawyers usually file claims against the owners of the vehicle – if different than the driver. Construction sites may be liable. Trucking companies and shippers may also be responsible.

We leave no stone unturned to help prove your claim. Call us as quickly as possible after a car accident, truck accident, or motorcycle accident in or near Parkville or anywhere in Missouri.

Can you hold Parkville property owners liable for injuries on their premises?

Retail businesses, restaurants, hotels, professional offices, and other for-profit businesses owe a duty to their customers to actively ensure the customers don’t suffer injuries while on the property of the business owner. Nonprofits such as schools, health providers, and social organizations also owe a duty of care to people who use their facilities. Neighbors need to keep their sidewalks clear of snow and ice.

Our Parkville premises liability lawyers represent customers and visitors who suffer injuries from:

  • Slip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Negligent security
  • Poor lighting
  • Unsafe walkways
  • Assaults
  • Broken or faulty steps and handrails
  • “Attractive nuisances”

A premises liability claim can encompass any of these examples, and so much more. Call us to talk about what happened, and to see how we can help.

Tough representation for nursing home seniors who suffer abuse or neglect

Seniors who live in or near Parkville have the pick of numerous nursing homes in their old age.

Quality care means the seniors should not be abused in any way, including physical, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse. The nursing homes and other long-term care or rehabilitative care centers should be properly staffed, and the buildings should be designed to anticipate mobility problems.

When abuse or neglect occurs, we file legal claims on behalf of any seniors who suffer harm, and the families of any senior residents who tragically die due to improper care.

Contact us if you see any signs or symptoms of abuse or neglect. Our Kanas City Accident Injury Attorneys advocate for seniors and work with families whose loved one lives in Parkville – even if the family lives out of state.

Who is liable for Parkville construction accidents?

Numerous construction projects have been approved for Parksville. While construction projects add to the beauty of the city, every construction project poses dangers for the workers, and for anyone who comes near the project. Drivers, pedestrians, and contractors have the right to file a personal injury claim against the owners and managers of the construction projects. Drivers must be warned where to drive. Pedestrians must be warned where to walk.

All workers have the right to expect the project will conform with OSHA regulations, local building codes, and industry standards. Employees have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim, but non-employees, like contractors or site visitors, would need to file a personal injury claim instead. (In some cases, an employee may have an injury claim and a work comp claim.) Anyone who is injured due to defective machines, equipment, or tools can file a product liability claim against the manufacturers of those products.

Our Parkville construction accident lawyers are skilled at filing personal injury claims and workers’ compensation claims. Call us now to discuss your rights.

Your right to workers’ compensation in Parkville, MO

Employees in Missouri have the right to file for benefits under the state workers’ compensation laws.  There is no need to prove the employer was negligent.

Employees have the right to claim payment of all the medical bills they need to maximize their health. They can also seek payment of approximately 2/3 of their wages. The right to receive wages while you are recovering is called temporary disability. Once your health is stable, employees are evaluated to determine if they have a permanent disability and the severity of the disability. Workers who can never work again due to their disability can claim the 2/3 payment for the rest of their lives. Some exceptions do apply.

Only employees can file a workers’ compensation claim. Non-employees such as independent contractors must file a personal injury claim. Both employees and non-employees can file a product liability if a product defect caused their injuries or the death of a loved one.

If you are injured while working, call our Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys today for help. If we cannot help you, we can recommend a trusted partner who can.

What are my rights if a defective product causes my injuries?

Consumers have the right to expect that the products they use are safe. This means that if a product such as a car, an electronic device, or a toy is defective the manufacturer can be held liable for any injuries or deaths that occur. Products may be defective if the design is poor, the workmanship is substandard, or the instructions/warnings are unclear or wrong. There is no need to prove negligence in a product liability case. Call our personal injury attorneys in Parkville today to discuss your right to file a product liability claim.

Can I hold healthcare providers liable for medical malpractice in Parkville?

When you’re in pain or ill, you expect that the physicians who treat you will be competent. All health providers including hospitals, pharmacists, nurses, and medical technicians owe their patients a duty of care that meets the medical standards for their type of practice. Filing medical malpractice claims requires lawyers with experience and tenacity because health providers will do everything they can to deny your claim.

If you are suffering due to an improper diagnosis, a missed diagnosis, incorrect medications, mistakes during surgery, mistakes during the birth of a child, or for other reasons, you may have a medical malpractice claim. Call Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys today to discuss who is liable and what compensation, including payment for corrective surgeries, you can demand.

How much is my Parkville personal injury case worth?

Each accident victim’s case is different. Cases are evaluated based on the strength of your liability claim, the type of injuries you have, how the injuries affect your life, and the amount of insurance the defendants have. Our trial lawyers have a strong track record of success negotiating settlements and trying cases in court. The first rule for all victims is to speak with a personal injury lawyer – never negotiate with any insurance companies on your own.

At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our Parkville lawyers demand compensation for the following expenses and personal losses:

  • Physical pain and emotional suffering. Every type of injury causes agony, aches, throbbing, and discomfort. Accident victims often can’t perform simple tasks like eating, driving, or sleeping without pain. Victims in pain have many worries and stresses. Some victims require psychological help. Injury victims have the right to compensation for all the ways their life is not like it should be.
  • Medical bills. We demand compensation for all your medical expenses including doctor visits, ER care, surgeries, therapy, medications, and assistive devices.
  • Income. Parkville personal injury victims should seek compensation for all the wages and income they lose because they can’t work – now or in the future.
  • Property damage. If your car, truck, or motorcycle is damaged, you can seek the cost to repair it. If the damage is beyond repair, you can seek the cost to replace it.
  • Loss of consortium. Missouri recognizes that the relationship with your spouse is not the same because of your aches and pains.

If the defendant’s wrong was malicious or reckless, you may be entitled to punitive damages.
