Victims injured in
car accidents caused by others may have a right to file personal injury claims against
the responsible party. These claims can allow victims and their loved
ones to recover compensation for their damages. There are two main points
these claims will attempt to prove:
- Another person's actions caused a victim harm; and
- The at-fault party should be held liable for the damages they caused.
While the purpose of a
personal injury lawsuit may seem simple, it can be a difficult process, especially when
insurance companies do everything they can to fight these claims. At the
Montee Law Firm, our Kansas City car accident attorneys work tirelessly
to help victims and families after they have suffered preventable harm
in auto accidents.
As part of this process, we focus on proving all essential legal elements
of negligence and liability:
Legal Duty – personal injury claims are hinged on proving that a legal duty
existed and that the legal duty was breached. In context of car accident
claims, all motorists have a legal duty to drive responsibly and take
reasonable measures to avoid causing preventable harm. Auto part manufacturers
also have a legal obligation to ensure their products are safe for intended
use. When drivers or auto manufacturers fail to uphold their legal duty,
victims harmed as a result have a right to pursue legal action.
Damages – our primary goal in car accident cases is to prove that another's
failure to uphold their legal duty caused our client(s) preventable harm.
Examples of this may include a driver who runs a red light and rear-ends
another vehicle, causing injuries to a victim. Drunk driving accidents
also involve driver negligence that leads to preventable harm.
By thoroughly investigating cases, preparing strong claims, and focusing
on the essential elements of proving negligence and liability, our legal
team provides our clients with the best possible chances of recovering
full and fair compensation. Depending on the circumstances of a case,
compensation may be awarded for a victim's medical expenses, lost
work wages, emotional injuries, and pain and suffering, among other damages.
At the Montee Law Firm, our attorneys focus on these difficult legal goals
so our clients can focus on recovering. Our experience and skill have
allowed us to continually secure positive resolutions for our clients,
including many successful
verdicts and settlements for car accident victims. If you or someone you love has been harmed in
a car accident in Kansas City or anywhere throughout the surrounding communities
