Compassionate Care from Experienced Attorneys

Whether the injury happened in an auto collision, trucking accident, motorcycle crash, or pedestrian accident, we have the experience and resources to prove negligence. We investigate promptly to preserve evidence and can summon professionals to reconstruct the crash if fault is disputed.

When liability is established, we turn our focus to the spinal cord injury and calculating compensation. Trial lawyers Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have handled every type of back, neck and spinal column case.

We can help you if you or your loved one suffered:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Hemiplegia (paralyzed on one side)
  • Partial paralysis (loss of function or sensation)
  • Associated injury (fractured vertebrae, herniated disc)

We Bring In the Experts

We have all cases reviewed by our board-certified physician consultant, whose credentials in emergency medicine help us in assessing the nature and extent of spinal trauma. Will the victim require a ventilator and 24-hour care for a high cervical injury? Can the victim benefit from physical therapy?

Along with medical specialists, life care planners, and other professionals, we calculate the future needs of the injured victim, which may include:

  • Nursing or assisted living care
  • Wheelchairs, lifts and other medical equipment
  • Modifications to the home or a vehicle
  • Occupational therapy to relearn basic functions
  • Vocational retraining
  • Psychological counseling

We calculate compensation for projected lost earnings, appropriate damages for pain and suffering, and the lost enjoyment of life through day-in-the-life videos and other methods.

If your loved one suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident, call our Kansas City spinal cord injury attorneys at (816) 484-3776 for a free case evaluation. We can come to you in the greater K.C. area.
