Kansas City Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of the Injured

When a motor vehicle accident, medical error, or other calamity leaves a loved one disabled, it creates serious burdens for both the victim and the victim’s family. There is the pain and physical challenge of rehab and recovery, the financial hardships that come with lost income, and the profound psychological impact of lives forever changed.

The legal team at Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C. is committed to holding the negligent party accountable for comprehensive compensation. Monetary damages won’t make the person whole, but it can restore economic security, cover future medical needs and special care, and pay for those things that will make life less taxing and more normal again. Our Kansas City catastrophic injury attorneys have secured verdicts and settlements for personal injury victims in both Missouri and Kansas.

Catastrophic Injury Attorneys on Your Side

Here at Dempsey & Kingsland, we have more than 80 years of combined experience in personal injury litigation. Robert Kingsland and Leland Dempsey have recovered compensation for a wide range of major injuries.

We can help you if you have suffered:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury (paralysis or lost function)
  • Loss of limb
  • Disabling back and neck injuries
  • Eye injury or profound hearing loss
  • Severe burn injury
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Amputations
  • Knee and joint injuries
  • Shoulder injury

We Won’t Sell Your Claim Short

We have access to experts who can help prove liability – of course, in catastrophic injury cases there often is no mystery or dispute about the negligence that caused the accident. The bigger issues are demonstrating damages and finding the insurance coverage – and that’s where our firm can make the biggest difference for our clients.

We have an exclusive arrangement with two highly experienced medical consultants (a physician and a nurse) who assess each client for extent and permanency of injuries so that we can calculate what financial compensation will cover the hard years ahead.

Using their medical expertise, they can determine if you will need:

  • Nursing home care
  • A home health aide
  • Home or vehicle modifications to accommodate a disability
  • Expensive medications or special medical equipment
  • Psychological counseling

We also work with life-care planners, vocational specialists, and other experts to project lost earnings over a lifetime. Once we have enumerated the needs, we go to the liable party’s insurance company. We shoot for the policy limits or a reasonable settlement that reflects all of your needs, and we are prepared to go to trial if necessary to convince a jury to award full compensation.

A Commitment to Excellence & Success

The profound depth of our legal experience and skill allows us to achieve maximum accountability and damages. No medical issue or disability is too complex for Dempsey & Kingsland. Our case results and our clients’ reviews confirm our ability to achieve maximum recovery.
