The Team You Need for the Results You Deserve Kansas City's Leading Medical Malpractice & Serious Personal Injury Firm

Rear-End Collision Attorneys in Kansas City

Were You Injured When Your Car Was Hit from Behind?

Rear-end collisions are almost always the fault of the driver behind. But proving liability is not the only reason you need an attorney. The serious injuries common in rear-impact crashes demand a separate investigation to ensure full compensation for the medical, economic, and personal impacts.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., you are represented by experienced rear-end collision attorneys and assessed by our on-call medical consultants. We will fight the insurance companies for the monetary damages you deserve after a rear-end accident caused by a negligent driver.

Call (816) 484-3776 or contact us online for a free consultation. We take cases throughout the Kansas City area in both Missouri and Kansas.

Rear-End Accident Scenarios

Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have handled hundreds of auto accidents, including just about every scenario of rear-end accidents.

We can help you if you were:

  • Hit from behind at a stoplight
  • Rear-ended in rush hour traffic
  • Slammed from the back while waiting to turn
  • Hit by a drunk driver who never even hit the brakes

We also represent injured passengers of a negligent driver who caused a rear-end accident.

Rear-end crashes may be a chain reaction involving several drivers. Sometimes the following drivers will claim that the car in front cut them off, stopped suddenly for no good reason, or had broken taillights. If necessary, we get witness statements or bring in professional investigators who can prove where the fault truly lies.

Maximizing Compensation

Perhaps the greatest value that Dempsey & Kingsland brings to your case is our ability to maximize the medical aspects of your settlement. We know that rear-end accidents commonly cause disabling back injuries, head trauma from striking the interior of the car, or “whiplash injury” that turns out to be a fractured vertebra or herniated disc in the neck. These kinds of injuries require extensive medical treatment, both immediately and in the future.

We prepare our cases for trial in order to convince insurance companies to settle for a full and fair amount for future medical care, disability from work, and your pain and suffering.
