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

Paralysis Attorneys in Kansas City

Paraplegia Lawyers Serving Missouri & Kansas

Accidents that result in paralysis, such as paraplegia and quadriplegia, are devastating for victims and their families. These injuries require extensive medical care – including special care needs and rehabilitation – that can last for years into the future, if not a lifetime. When you pursue the compensation you need from the insurance company or the liable party, you need to recover benefits that address all of your needs following an accident.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our experienced paralysis lawyers in Kansas City know how important it is to get it right the first time. We take a comprehensive approach to cases involving paralysis. We thoroughly investigate accidents and vigorously pursue full and fair damages that clients and their families will need for the difficult years ahead.

Call us at (816) 484-3776 to schedule a free consultation. Our firm has years of experience obtaining substantial settlements and verdicts for our clients in Missouri and Kansas.

Fighting for the Compensation You Need

Any kind of damage or trauma to the brain or to the spinal cord can impact the central nervous system, which can affect the ability to move parts of the body.

This damage can result in loss of function or feeling, including paralysis, as well as:

  • Pinched vertebrae
  • Burst fractures
  • Broken vertebrae
  • Contusions and bruising
  • Scar tissues
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

While some spinal cord injuries have only temporary effects and can be fixed with surgery or other treatments, most people who have suffered paraplegia or quadriplegia will need some level of continuing care throughout their lives. Only by seeking appropriate levels of compensation can you ensure that medical costs in the past, present, and future will be covered.

Contact us after an accident that has resulted in a catastrophic injury, including paralysis. You can reach us at (816) 484-3776.
