Personal Injury

If you have been injured in Missouri, often, you can recover the medical costs that resulted from your injury including such costs for ambulances, doctors, hospitals, reconstructive surgery, medications, physical therapy, home health care, assistive devices, home modification, specialized vehicles, future medical expenses and other medical costs associated with your injury.

You can also potentially recover for physical pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, mental anguish, emotional trauma, embarrassment, loss of love and affection, lost wages and other benefits, loss all or part of future earning capacity, and diminished enjoyment of life.

Victims of serious personal injury can often recover for disfigurement, loss of limb, permanent or disfiguring scars, disability, and loss to one of the five senses.

While the effects of some injuries can never be reversed, in effect, the goal of a Missouri personal injury attorney is to make you whole—at least to the extent that is possible with money.  Money is not a perfect solution but it is the best we have.  If you have been seriously injured, you may never be able to enjoy life the same way you did before being injured but money can help you enjoy life in the ways which you are able.

In Missouri, even if your injuries are partly due to your own actions or negligence, you may still be able to recover.  Before consulting a qualified Missouri personal injury attorney, many potential clients do not know who else can be blamed for their injuries.  Countless circumstances can create liability such as inadequate warnings, defective and/or dangerous products, inadequate lighting, improper maintenance, carelessness, inattention, distraction, etc.

Just a few areas of personal injury include:
  • ATV Accidents
  • Automatic Door Injuries
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Boating Accidents
  • Burn Injuries
  • Bus Accidents
  • Car Accidents
  • Dog Bites
  • Drowning Accidents
  • Electrocution Injuries
  • Escalator Accidents
  • Food Poisoning
  • Head and Brain Injuries
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Railroad Crossing Accidents
  • Slip and Fall Injuries
  • Trucking Accidents

Over 31 million people are injured in accidents each year according to the National Center for Injury Protection and Control.  Tragically, 90,000 people die each year as a result of these injuries.

Holding those at fault for injuries liable helps reduce unnecessary injuries and deaths.

Do not lose your right to file a claim by waiting too long to contact an attorney.  The sooner you contact a Kansas City personal injury attorney, the better chance you have of protecting your rights.

Many injuries require immediate action by an attorney to preserve evidence.
