Do you have a case?
Most people who contact us want to know one thing: Do I have a case?
If you would like your case to be reviewed, just fill out the short questionnaire below. We’ll get in touch shortly after looking over your information.
Or Call Us Now at (816) 221-2288 or (844) 243-2288 to discuss your case.
If you’ve suffered an injury in a truck accident, an auto accident, from a medical procedure, at work, in a nursing home, or from a faulty product, a medical device or any other type of catastrophic personal injury, our Kansas City Accident Attorneys can help you get full and fair compensation.
Such injuries are often the result of someone else’s negligence—and that person (or corporation) needs to be held responsible.
The 7th Amendment guarantees your right to a trial by jury. A trial by jury is your access to the civil justice system and allows you to hold corporations and wrongdoers accountable when they harm people, pollute our environment or endanger our children. If such lawbreakers are not held accountable, it erodes your safety and the safety of our community.
However, it is important to note that the State of Missouri has a statute of limitations that effects how long you have to contact your Kansas City Personal Injury Lawyers. This statute of limitations is 5 years after the incident that caused the injury. After five years, the court may no longer hear the case.
Additionally, because Missouri upholds a “pure” comparative fault rule, if the injured party shared part of the fault that led to the accident, that party may be responsible for the percentage of fault. For example, imagine you were speeding through a yellow light and another car ran a red light and crashed into you. Although the other party is mostly to blame, the court may find that you were 15% at fault for the accident. As such, if you sue the other party for $100,000 in damages, the other party may only be liable for $85,000.
For this reason, you need a competent and diligent team of accident attorneys behind your case to determine the exact percentage of fault and pursue fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
