Cat R.

This process was a learning experience for both me and my wife. The staff at Bradley Law always answered our questions. The timeline for which stuff got done was a bit frustrating but it’s because me and my wife were unfamiliar with the process. Overall, we had a great experience with Bradley Law and would recommend to others.

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Call Us at (314) 400-0000

You deserve to have the opportunity to focus on getting better. You won’t have that opportunity if you’re spending much of your time and energy fighting defendants and their insurance companies. And, if you try to handle your injury case on your own, there’s a good chance that you won’t recover all of the money you deserve.

That’s because:

  • Insurance companies are well funded and will have teams of skilled attorneys working against you
  • You’ll probably be blamed for your accident and injuries
  • There’s only a limited time to file a claim – and missing the deadline will void your right to get compensation
  • You might not really know what your case is worth – and insurers will have to final say.

When you hire a Kansas City accident lawyer, you can make sure that insurance providers and well-funded adversaries don’t have an unfair advantage. Hiring a lawyer means leveling the playing field. We have the experience, insight, and resources to help you get the money you deserve.

What Do I Have to Prove to Win a Personal Injury Case?

Most personal injury cases in Missouri are based on negligence. Negligence means that another person had a duty to act reasonably but failed to do so, and caused you to suffer injuries in the process.

In order to win a negligence claim, you’ll have to establish each of the following elements:

  • Duty: The defendant owed you a duty of care
  • Breach: The defendant breached that duty of care, meaning that they failed to act reasonably under the circumstances
  • Causation: The defendant’s conduct was a direct and proximate cause of your harm.
  • Injury: You sustained an injury or damages of some sort

Note, not all injury claims are based on negligence. There are times when defendants might be strictly liable for the harm you experience. This is most often the situation in cases involving dog bites and defective products. With strict liability, there’s no need to prove someone was careless. Rather, they’re liable because the law says so.

What Compensation Can I Get If I’m Injured in an Accident?

If you’re injured due to someone else’s negligence, you’ll probably be able to secure compensatory damages from the responsible party. Compensatory damages fall into one of two categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages are awarded to make you financially whole after your accident. By recovering economic damages, it shoudl be as if the accident never happened at all – at least in terms of money. Examples of economic awards include medical bills, lost wages, disability, nursing care, and funeral costs.

Non-economic damages are paid to compensate for injuries that are subjective and not easily valued in terms of dollars and cents. These are often referred to as “pain and suffering” damages, and are intended to make up for your emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and chronic pain.

In limited instances, punitive damages might be available. These are intended to punish the defendant for behavior that’s deliberate and displays a flagrant disregard for the safety of others – like driving drunk or under the influence of drugs.

truck accidents

Truck Accidents

Auto accidents involving semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and other large commercial vehicles can be devastating. Often, truck accidents can be avoided, but happen because drivers are distracted or just too tired to be on the open road. Other times, truck accidents are a consequence of negligent training or defective vehicles. Our truck accident lawyers will determine what caused your accident, identify who’s to blame, and work to hold them fully accountable for your injuries.

uber and lyft accidents

Uber & Lyft Accidents

Rideshare companies won’t step up and pay for injuries that you suffer in an Uber or Lyft accident in Kansas City. And, while they have insurance, those policies are secondary to others that might apply. This means that getting money will involve going after the rideshare driver, that driver’s personal insurer, and other liable parties first. Our attorneys understand the curveballs that Uber and Lyft accidents can throw your way – and we’re ready to help you work toward a full financial recovery.

Slip and Fall Accidents

When you slip and fall at a restaurant, in a store, or one property owned by someone else, there’s a good chance that the owner could be responsible for your injuries.

Can I Still Get Money If I’m Blamed For an Accident?

Yes – as long as someone else is responsible, too. Missouri has pure comparative negligence rules. Everyone who contributes to an accident shares blame – including those who get hurt.

If you share responsibility for an accident, it doesn’t mean you cannot recover compensation. It simply means that your financial award will be reduced. If you’re 30% to blame, your damages will be reduced by 30%. And, you’ll be 30% responsible for damages sustained by others in that same accident.

Insurance companies love to blame the victim. Those responsible for your injuries will probably try to point the finger at you, too. If you do nothing to defend yourself, you could watch your financial award disappear. When you hire our attorneys, we’ll help to fend off these claims and protect your ability to get the money you deserve in the process.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Missouri?

Five years is the standard statute of limitations that applies to personal injury lawsuits in the state of Missouri

However, there are times when a different time limit will apply. Wrongful death cases are subject to a three-year time limit, workers’ compensation claims have to be brought within two years of a workplace injury, and claims involving the government must be filed within 90 days of injury.

If you miss the deadline that applies to your case you’ll lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries.
