There are certain elements that enable a personal injury victim to pursue financial recovery through the civil court system. These elements must be present in your accident to constitute grounds for a lawsuit. Someone else’s negligence, recklessness, intent to harm, or unlawful act must have caused or contributed to your injuries. The majority of personal injury cases center on the legal doctrine of negligence.
Some cases, however, do not require the injured party to prove negligence. Product liability claims, for example, rely on proof that a product had a defect, and that this defect caused the injury. There is no need to prove that the manufacturing company committed an act of negligence. Understanding the specific elements you’ll need to bring a claim in Kansas City, Kansas or Missouri requires help from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Handling personal injury cases in Kansas and Missouri poses unique challenges that your attorney must be equipped to handle. One of the largest cities in the country, Kansas City metropolitan area is a bi-state region of 2.1 million people anchored by Kansas City, Missouri. A personal injury attorney should be licensed by the state bar of both Kansas and Missouri, and have significant experience with both state’s court system and legal statutes. This way, they are prepared to handle anything that comes up in your case.
Our founding attorney Samuel Wendt is not only licensed in Kansas and Missouri, but has been recognized as one of the top 100 attorneys in both states.

The statute of limitations in Kansas is two years from the date of the incident, while in Missouri it’s five years.
Beyond licensing and statutes, hiring an attorney for a serious injury case is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. Be sure that your attorney has a track record of successes. Our firm has secured well over $100,000,000 for our clients, including over $89,000,000 in settlements against pharmaceutical companies.
