Understanding “Personal Injury”

You have heard the term “personal injury” in television ads, but do you really understand what the term means? The attornies at Woods Law KC are experts in personal injury law, so please allow us to share some of our knowledge with you.

You may have been injured as the result of an accident, but this doesn’t mean that you have the grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Personal injury lawsuits arise when you are injured, and the cause of your injury was due to the negligence or wrongful action of someone else.

Personal injury lawsuits also come from damages or injuries caused by a person who fails to demonstrate “reasonable care.”

In the state of Missouri, you have the legal right to sue for damages incurred and for subsequent costs that are expected to occur in the future.

When our clients sue for damages, they may be asking for compensation to cover medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damages, emotional distress, loss of earnings, loss of consortium or companionship, legal costs, and attorney’s fees.

Clear as mud? We know that navigating the legal system in Missouri and Kansas is tricky. That’s why we encourage you to reach out to an expert before the statute of limitations for a potential lawsuit expires. You and your family should not suffer from financial hardship caused by someone else’s bad decisions.

We would be glad to sit down and talk with you about your unique situation. Give us a call at (816) 398-7877, and we can set up a time to discuss how Missouri’s personal injury laws may help you.
