Suffering a personal injury can be a devastating event. Not only are you a victim of physical pain, but the incident could also trigger heavy emotional and financial burdens. The accomplished attorneys at the Barnes Law Firm LLC in Kansas City, Missouri understand that you shouldn’t have to suffer financially due to someone else’s actions. We have an extensive track record winning trials and substantial settlements on behalf of injured clients throughout the area. Whether you’ve been hurt in a car crash, because of a poorly made product, or through some other example of negligence, filing a personal injury claim can help you get the damages you need to get your life back on track.
Typical personal injury claims are based on negligence, meaning that an innocent party suffered harm because someone failed to exercise reasonable care. For instance, when drivers get into accidents, the parties at fault are responsible for any damages due to their failure to follow the rules of the road. We handle all types of vehicle injury cases, including matters arising from:
Missouri law gives victims five years after the date of the injury to file a lawsuit, but with each passing day, it becomes harder to locate key evidence and witnesses. In auto accident claims and other cases, if someone else’s irresponsibility or carelessness hurt your body, mind, or emotional state, we’ll pursue proper financial compensation.
Injuries from defective products often strike without warning. Depending on the particular item involved, a victim could obtain damages from a manufacturer, designer or seller. Our lawyers can outline whether a defendant must be shown to be negligent or if the strict liability standard applies. Strict liability is often used in cases involving defective products since it holds parties strictly responsible for product-related injuries. In these cases, the victim only has to prove that the product sold was unreasonably dangerous to use as intended.
Though true justice can never be achieved after a wrongful death caused by someone else’s carelessness or intentional misconduct, a measure of legal relief is available. Our firm represents spouses, children, parents and other eligible family members in lawsuits against parties who contributed to their loved one’s passing. If you’ve endured this type of loss following a vehicle crash, an accident involving a defective product, or some other type of incident, we’ll advise you on compensation that can be collected for funeral expenses, wages and benefits the decedent would have earned, the value of the victim’s companionship, and other damages. Our personal approach to each matter enables us to create a comprehensive case in a full range of wrongful death lawsuits.
