Compensation for Permanent Disability /Fatality

Kansas and Missouri Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer

When a car or other accident results in permanent, life-changing injury or a death, the entire family is impacted by the loss. Lives and dreams must be readjusted, and the financial realities of ongoing medical care and lost income set in.

A personal injury claim or wrongful death lawsuit can’t change what happened, but it can provide a measure of justice and security for survivors, and improvement in the victim’s quality of life. Michael R. Lawless, P.A., Attorney at Law helps clients take that step to emotional and economic recovery. We represent individuals and family members in eastern Kansas and western Missouri.

In a free consultation, we can discuss your legal options after a catastrophic injury or death. Contact Mike Lawless by e-mail or at 913-681-5566, 816-966-0099 or 1-800-734-3771.

Catastrophic Injury

We have obtained full compensation, through insurance settlement or trial, for auto accidents or truck accidents resulting in serious, debilitating injuries:

  • Spinal cord damage, paralysis and quadriplegia
  • Broken back or neck / multiple broken bones
  • Crushed spine/compression
  • Permanent spinal injury

We consult with life care planners, home care providers, medical and vocational experts, and economists to determine the victim’s prognosis for recovery and the projected medical and personal care needs over years or a lifetime. Our firm also sees to it that our clients get proper medical treatment during insurance negotiations or litigation.

Wrongful Death

In a wrongful death action, the victim’s estate can sue for lost economic contributions, medical and funeral expenses incurred, and emotional damages for loss of consortium and companionship. Any compensation is distributed according to the will or probate ruling. Because of statutes of limitations, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit even as we are brokering a likely settlement.
