Kansas City Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Aggressive Representation for Injured Motorcyclists

Motorcycle crashes rarely result in just minor injuries. Motorcyclists involved in an accident are likely facing fatality or severe, disabling injuries.

At Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys in Kansas City are skilled at proving negligence of the other driver and maximizing damages for clients who have suffered serious or catastrophic harm. We have secured verdicts and settlements for motorcycle accident victims in both Missouri and Kansas.

Call (816) 484-3776 for a free consultation. We can visit you at your home or at the hospital.

Winning the Blame Game

In Missouri and Kansas, motorcycles are entitled to full use of a lane. Motor vehicles cannot deprive any motorcycle of the full use of that lane.

Despite this entitlement, motorcycle accidents still happen on a regular basis due to:

  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Speeding
  • Not recognizing a motorcycle’s equal right to the road
  • Not providing enough distance between a car and motorcycle
  • Cutting off a motorcycle during a lane change or turn

People are quick to assume that the “biker” was doing something wrong, but more likely an inattentive driver of a car or truck caused the wreck. We investigate promptly to preserve evidence and talk to witnesses. If necessary, we bring in professionals to measure skid marks, inspect the vehicles, and reconstruct the accident to establish the motorist’s negligence.

Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Here at Dempsey & Kingsland, we have successfully represented clients who suffered catastrophic injuries in motorcycle crashes.

Our firm helps riders who have experienced injuries such as:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Road rash and skin abrasions
  • Back injuries

Dempsey & Kingsland can also assist those whose loved ones died in motorcycle accidents, filing wrongful death claims and helping them put their lives back together after devastating losses.

Understanding Motorcycle Insurance

Given the extent of injuries that are often suffered in motorcycle accidents, the policy limits of motorcycle insurance in Missouri and Kansas often exceed the damages. It is possible to make a claim against your own policy, if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance, to recover any amount not covered by the other driver’s insurance policy. If the driver who was responsible for the accident was driving on the job, it is possible to pursue a claim against that company’s policy.

The interests of the insurance company lie with minimizing liability, not with giving you information about sources of recovery. Our firm has an in-depth understanding of motorcycle insurance and is dedicated to helping our clients take advantage of their rights.

Seeking Full Compensation for Motorcycle Injuries

Kansas City motorcycle accident attorneys Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have over 80 years of combined experience in motor vehicle accidents and have obtained substantial results on behalf of clients who suffered catastrophic injuries. We are aided in calculating the personal impact of an injury by two veteran medical professionals who work exclusively with our firm.
