Our lawyers work with your doctors and our own network of physicians to verify the type of injury you have. We learn every way your injuries are affecting your work, family, and social life.

We handle the simple cases such as rear-end collisions where fault is clear, the complex cases such as multi-vehicle accidents with many plaintiffs and defendants, and the cases where the defendants will fight you tooth and nail, including medical malpractice claims.

Tough representation when car, truck, and motorcycle accident drivers cause injuries and fatalities in Kansas City
Kansas has a lot of busy streets and highways – like Interstates 35 and 70, US-24, US-40; K-5, K-7, and K-32; the South Street Expressway, the Turner Diagonal – and motorists must drive carefully. Carefully means not speeding and not running red lights. Careful drivers don’t drive while distracted, intoxicated, or fatigued. Careful drivers can drive safely in rain, sun, and snow.
At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, our vehicle accident lawyers file claims against everyone responsible for your accident. Responsible defendants may include drivers, owners of the vehicles, employers, trucking companies that arrange or request shipments, manufacturers of defective vehicle parts, and others. We handle all types of accidents, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, buses, Ubers and Lyfts. We also represent pedestrians and bicycle riders injured in a Kansas City car accident.

Anyone in Kansas City, KS who shops, dines out, uses a hotel, sees a professional, attends a community function, or visits another property for any reason has the right to expect the property owner ensured the premises are safe. Property owners may be liable if you slip and fall, suffer an assault, are hurt while using an elevator or escalator, are bitten by a dog, or are injured in any way if they failed to inspect their property for dangerous conditions. The owners may also be liable if they failed to warn you of a known dangerous condition.

Caring help when Kansas City nursing homes harm residents through abuse or neglect
Nursing home and long-term care facilities throughout Kansas have a duty to ensure their residents are safe from neglect and abuse. Nursing homes know that seniors have difficulty with walking, balance, and other physical and emotional issues and implement steps to mitigate these problems. For example, they should take steps to prevent seniors from falling by installing railings to hold on to and ramps for their wheelchairs.
At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we file claims against these care centers when they fail to design and maintain their premises so their residents aren’t injured. We also file claims when nursing homes fail to prevent seniors from suffering any kind of physical, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse. Abuse includes bedsores, isolation, malnutrition, financial theft, and many other types of misconduct.
We can explain your loved one’s rights and the proper next steps. Residents, family, and friends who suspect abuse or neglect should contact us promptly to stop the harm, protect other residents, and assert the senior’s right to compensation.
Seasoned help for injured Kansas City construction workers
Construction workers throughout Kansas City are constantly repairing roads, fixing bridges, installing sewer lines, and improving our state. Companies are building new homes and offices, expanding older buildings, and making repairs.
The construction companies who perform this work need to protect their employees and contractors. They must put safety procedures in place, so pedestrians don’t trip and fall or aren’t struck by tools, equipment, or debris. Company owners and engineers may be liable if a driver strikes a worker, another car, or just veers off the road or into a barrier.
At Kansas City Injury Accident Attorneys, our lawyers file workers’ compensation claims on behalf of injured employees. We file personal injury claims when a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or contractor suffers harm because a construction company fails to follow industry standards, federal laws, or local building codes.
We also file wrongful death claims if a loved one was killed in a Kansas City construction accident.
What rights do employees have to file a Kansas City workers’ compensation claim?
Kansas has a state workers’ compensation system that protects employees injured while doing their job. Some of the key similarities and differences between a Kansas workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim include:
- No fault requirement. In a workers’ compensation claim, if you’re injured in a job-related accident, you do not need to prove your employer was negligent. Even if you were careless (provided your conduct wasn’t intentional), you can also file a workers’ compensation claim. In personal injury cases, the victims must prove fault.
- Medical bills. In both workers’ compensation cases and personal injury cases, employees with valid claims are entitled to payment of all their medical expenses – including ER care, surgeries, doctor visits, rehabilitation therapy, assistive devices, and medications.
- Income compensation. Generally, in a workers’ compensation claim, an employee is entitled to temporary benefits while they are maximizing their health. If you have a permanent disability, you may be entitled to additional pay. The pay rate is approximately 2/3 of your average weekly wages for temporary and permanent disabilities. In personal injury cases, victims can seek all their lost income for as long as they are unable to work.
Workers’ compensation claims do not include pain and suffering, but personal injury claims do allow for this.
