Car Accident Attorneys - Kansas and Missouri

CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS

It is not something we like to think about, but odds are you will be involved in at least one car accident in your life.  Hopefully the accident is nothing more than a minor impact fender-bender, without injury. Unfortunately, that is not always the case, and some individuals involved in a car accident will suffer significant personal injuries such as broken bones, torn ligaments, dislocated joints, herniated discs or spinal fractures, spinal cord injuries, or a traumatic brain injury.

Serious and catastrophic injuries sustained in a car accident can result in physical, financial, and emotional strain on the involved parties, and their families. Unfortunately, many people do not have the money to continue paying their bills without being able to work, or to afford the costs of quality medical care and treatment. If you are experiencing physical or financial hardship as a result of a car accident caused by somebody else’s careless, reckless, or negligent driving, call 913-839-2808, or contact us by email to schedule a free initial consultation with one of the personal injury attorneys at Morefield Speicher Bachman, LC.

FAQ About Car Accidents
