Helping You Get Back On Your Feet After an Accident

Car accidents are the fourth leading cause of injuries in the United States today. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 100 people are wrongfully killed every day from vehicle crashes, with 57% of them caused due to driver factors, such as distracted driving.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident that was caused due to the negligence of someone else, you need an effective and experienced car accident lawyer in Kansas City to help you handle the complex claims process.

Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott has been helping the residents of our community with their accident claims for years and we are so familiar with the process that you can rest assured we will fight to get you the most successful outcome possible for your situation. When injured in an auto accident, you are likely worried about getting treated for your injuries and handling your property damage.

What Type of Compensation Can I Receive?

You shouldn't have to worry about struggling with paperwork and the insurance companies who are trying to settle quickly with you for as little as possible, or even worse, trying to deny your claim.

Our firm will personally handle your claim from beginning to end, ensuring you are compensated for any of the following:

  • Property damage to your car
  • Rental charges you have incurred
  • Necessary medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering

We believe in getting you the compensation you deserve so you can get on with your life. Speak with the team at Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott today.

What is Your Case Worth?

You may wonder what you could expect in compensation. This can vary widely, based upon the degree of the injuries suffered and the long term consequences of the accident. Some injuries may take months or longer to resolve, whereas others may be so serious that there is no chance of returning to the quality of life enjoyed prior to the act of negligence. We carefully evaluate each and every injury case we take on, so that we pursue the maximum possible in compensation.

The issues that must be determined include the actual economic damage - this is your medical bills, ambulance bills, rehabilitation costs, and loss of work income. There are also much more personal damages - pain and suffering or loss of quality of life. We pursue every form of damage, and we are zealous advocates for our clients. We don't back down - we know the law, we know what you are due, and we are ready to fight for it, in court
when necessary.

Protect Yourself from the Insurance Company

A large majority of car accident claims are resolved through a settlement. The amount of the settlement is negotiated with the insurance company. It is important that you are protected during this process. We urge you to avoid speaking with an insurance adjuster or other insurance company personnel. The adjuster may sound friendly, kind and concerned, but these employees are trained in ways to reduce the amount paid by their company.

Our Goal is to Serve You

There are various strategies that may need to be employed for success. We make it easy for you to get information and we offer a free case evaluation as your initial step. It is important that you have full confidence in your Kansas City car accident lawyer, and that you know that your case will be given the full attention and focus that it deserves.
