Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

With so many different forms of transportation available to us today, we are able to get around more quickly and easily than ever before. Of course, with this convenience comes the unfortunate downside: Accidents.

Dempsey & Kingsland represents clients who have been injured in:

  • Car accidents: Collision victims or pedestrians injured by cars
  • Truck accidents: Crashes involving an 18-wheeler, bus, or commercial vehicle
  • Motorcycle accidents: Riders who collided with a car or were forced off the road
  • Train accidents: Car-train accidents at railroad crossings
  • Boating accidents: Injuries involving boats or personal watercrafts

We also represent the families of accident victims in wrongful death cases.

Serious Representation for Serious Injury

Our firm is well-equipped to represent the seriously injured. Our typical clients have huge hospital bills and face the daunting prospects of surgery, long and painful rehab, and financial straits because they cannot return to work for months (if ever).

We excel in representing clients with permanent or catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Brain damage
  • Organ damage
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Severe burns or disfigurement
  • Knee and joint injury
  • Should injury
  • Vision and hearing impairment

For those clients, we pursue the long-term compensation necessary for lifelong medical care, lost earning capacity, and accommodations to make life as normal as possible, plus a rightful amount for pain, suffering, and lost enjoyment of life.

We have experienced medical consultants who work only with our firm to assess each client’s injuries and future needs. We can bring in additional experts to assist in proving liability and computing the damages that our clients need and deserve.

Experienced Representation

If fault for the accident is disputed, law partners Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have five decades of combined experience and ready access to professional investigators to pin liability on the negligent party. We know how to build a solid case for damages from the ground up, and we are prepared to go all the way to a jury if that’s what it takes.

Contact our Kansas City motor vehicle accident attorneys today at (816) 484-3776 for a free consultation. We can come to you if your serious injury prevents traveling to us.
