Road Traffic Accidents and Injuries in Kansas City, Missouri
Whether a rear end collision, multiple-car pileup, or any other type of accident, serious injuries often result that require medical attention and cause those who are injured to miss work. Some severe injuries may require surgery, rehabilitation, or long-term care. Others may leave the victim paralyzed or permanently disabled. Broken bones, fractures, spinal cord and neck injuries, amputation injuries, head or neck injuries, and traumatic brain injuries are all common with these serious accidents.
Victims often face overwhelming costs associated with their injuries including lost wages, hospital and doctor expenses, costs for physical therapy or rehabilitation, and more. When someone else is responsible, you should be compensated for these costs. Insurance companies will use every tactic you could imagine to delay, under-value, or even deny a claim. You must consult with a seasoned Kansas City personal injury attorney who will fight for the full damages you deserve whether your case can be settled outside of the courtroom or requires going to trial.
