Justice For The Injured

If you have suffered a serious injury, you know how it can affect every aspect of your life. In addition to the pain and other physical and mental symptoms you face, you can face overwhelming medical costs, lost wages and other financial problems. Your family may be left without your income, and with other burdens. It's a terrible situation.

As an attorney in Overland Park, Kansas, and the Kansas City metropolitan area, I help the injured and their families to find justice after serious injury. I represent clients in both Kansas and Missouri in personal injury and workers' compensation cases. I have been practicing law for more than 25 years, and I have helped hundreds of people recover the compensation and receive the benefits they deserve.

Personal Injury

If you have been injured due to another party's negligence or bad acts, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim. However, it can be very difficult to successfully make one of these claims, and without help from an experienced personal injury lawyer, it can be nearly impossible to recover the full amount of compensation  you need and deserve.

I help the injured and their families fight for compensation in personal injury cases involving, among other things, as motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, construction accidents, premises liability and wrongful death.

Workers' Compensation

Your state's workers' compensation laws are supposed to help you cope with the aftermath of being injured at work. Unlike personal injury lawsuits, a workers' compensation claim has no requirement of showing fault. That means it is not necessary to show your employer did anything wrong, or that your workplace was inherently unsafe.

In theory, you should be able to file a claim, and then your employer and their workers' compensation carrier will pay for your medical care and provide lost wage benefits to you while you are unable to return to work because of your injury.

Unfortunately, employers and their insurance carriers often reject claims, delay benefits or provide much less than injured employees need and are entitled to.

I help the injured and their families fight for the benefits they deserve. I can help at many stages, from assisting you with the filing of initial paperwork to representing you at hearings and beyond.
