Personal injury law is a core area of expertise for the attorneys at Injury Law Associates, LLC. We believe in educating our clients on the claims process, personal injury laws in Kansas and Missouri, and how we can assist them before pursuing any personal injury claim. It is essential to consult with our personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to determine which state’s laws apply to your specific accident or injury, as well as the time frame within which you have to file a lawsuit.
Personal injury cases can be complex and time-consuming, so it is important to find an attorney who is dedicated to your case and willing to work hard to achieve a favorable outcome. A good attorney should be responsive to your needs and keep you informed about the progress of your case. They should also be willing to communicate with you in a way that you understand and make sure that you are comfortable with the legal process.
Another factor to consider is the attorney’s location. While it’s not essential to choose an attorney who’s located in Kansas or Missouri, it could be beneficial to have an attorney who is familiar with the local court system and the judges who will be handling your case. This can be especially important if your case is going to trial, since the attorney will be more familiar with the trial procedures and the local rules of evidence.
Personal injury can be caused by a wide range of accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and medical malpractice, among others. Regardless of the specific type of accident, a personal injury can result in serious injuries, significant medical expenses, and loss of income.
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Kansas & Missouri is typically two years from the date of the injury or accident. This means that a person has two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit in court. However, it’s important to note that there may be exceptions to this rule depending on the specific circumstances of the case. It is always best to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to determine the exact statute of limitations that applies to your case.
If you have been hurt due to the negligence of another, let us assist you with your legal needs. Accidents can happen to anyone, even the most cautious of residents. You have the right to seek compensation from the party responsible, whether or not they intended to cause harm. Negligence can be simple carelessness or it can be a willful disregard for the safety of others. In either case, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, and lost income.
When choosing a personal injury attorney in Kansas or Missouri, it is important to schedule a consultation to discuss your case and to get to know the attorney. This will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and to get a sense of the attorney’s experience, qualifications, and approach to handling personal injury cases. It will also allow you to determine if you feel comfortable working with the attorney.
It’s also important to consider the cost when choosing a personal injury attorney. Many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that they only get paid if they win your case and you receive a settlement or award. In this type of arrangement, the attorney will typically take a percentage of the settlement or award as their fee. Understanding the terms of the contingency fee agreement and how the attorney calculates their fee in key. Some attorneys may also charge for expenses related to your case, such as court costs or expert witness fees.
A good attorney should be easy to talk to and should be able to explain the legal process in a way that you understand. They should also be available to answer your questions and address any concerns that you may have.
“I had a great experience with accident law KC, after having a car accident in 2021 they took over and handled everything that had to do with my insurance and they did it very well. I got all the treatments for my back and leg injuries that I needed and was pleased with how well they took care of me. I would work with Accident law kc again.”
“Rachel was so insightful, telling me I needed to add uninsured motorist coverage years before the accidents which I did immediately. That extra coverage made all the difference in the world when I got hurt. But Rachel thought outside of the box by having the two insurance companies battle each other over who was at fault instead, putting the burden of proof on them. And they finally came to a resolution!”
“I was riding my bicycle and hit by a car going at highway speeds and I sustained serious injuries. Rachel Smith treated me with respect, and it was obvious that she was invested in me.

“Rachel’s and her team’s untiring dedication gave me the peace I needed to be patient. Knowing they would do the right thing gave me the confidence to know I would be vindicated. Their words of common sense inspired me to be calm and make [the] right decisions.”
“I liked [that Rachel] returned my phone calls and actually answered the phone. They dealt with my case quickly. I had been dealing with another attorney and when Rachel took over it was a total change. They always answered my questions. She did a great job and I was pleased with her service.”
“When I had questions everything as answered in a proper amount of time. They were just really nice. [I would tell them to] keep up the good work! They are always putting the client first. I like Rachel because I know she would get back with me, and what she is doing is for us.”
