Passenger Injury Attorneys in Kansas City
Passenger Representation in Car Accidents
When passengers are hurt in motor vehicle accidents, there can be unique legal and insurance issues in seeking compensation. It may be necessary to sue a family member or friend. And while the injuries are just as serious, those injuries may be different because of the passenger’s age or their location in the vehicle.
The Kansas City car accident lawyers of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., have represented children and adults as passengers injured in car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. We are attuned to the special considerations as we prepare a claim for maximum money damages.
If the driver of another vehicle caused the crash, a passenger case is the same as any other. We work with many professionals to establish liability and calculate the medical and monetary impact in suing for compensation. We have secured full compensation even for major injuries and wrongful death.
What happens if your parent, grandparent, or sibling who was driving the car was at fault? What if you were carpooling with a friend or a neighbor whose negligence led to passenger injuries?
Suing family members or friends is a delicate matter, but you are suing for insurance coverage of your significant losses and not necessarily to blame and shame the at-fault driver.
Passengers suffer all kinds of injuries. In the front passenger seat, the person may hit the windshield or be ejected from the vehicle. People in the back seat may hit the seat in front of them or suffer serious back and neck injuries from a rear-end collision. Children in car seats also sustain unique injuries. We work with a physician consultant and nurse consultant to assess the specific medical issues arising from a crash.
