Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. The responsible person’s insurance company will pay money to the injured person for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other ongoing medical expenses. If the case involves medical malpractice, your personal injury attorney will be working with insurance companies and hospital attorneys.

A personal injury case can become formalized through a personal injury lawyer representing you at a civil court proceeding. This court session seeks to find others legally at fault through a court judgment or, as is much more common, such disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.

Property owners must maintain a reasonably safe environment for the public. Otherwise, a slip and fall injury can turn into a personal injury and compensation case. Depending upon the patron’s actions or state of mind, a slip and fall injury could constitute damages. The court will establish who is at fault and who is negligent. However, patrons injured or involved in an accident should pursue legal counsel to ensure protection. Contact me about your personal injury / slip and fall injury case today.

The doctor/patient relationship establishes confidentiality and trust. When a doctor is considered negligent while treating a patient, this medical malpractice. The existence of an outstanding duty, deviation of standard care, or injury to the patient can all be considered malpractice. Both civil and criminal charges can be pursued depending on the severity of the situation.

Workers’ compensation refers to illness or injury that is considered “work-related” and allows employees some compensation. Both the Division of Labor in Missouri and the Kansas Department of Labor have separate bodies and processes for workers’ compensation and legal rights, and it is important that you hire an attorney familiar with both these and federal regulations. Specific parameters exist for injured employees to file a claim. In some situations, further legal action can be pursued in civil court for damages if worker’s compensation benefits are not satisfactory. I am an attorney who’s experienced pursuing legal action for workers’ compensation and legal rights in Kansas City, in both Kansas and Missouri courts as well as in federal court.
