Personal Injury Attorneys Fighting for Kansas City Residents Injured in Auto Accidents, Workplace Accidents and More
It only takes an instant for your life to change forever. One minute you’re innocently driving down the road, staying in your lane and sticking to the speed limit, and the next you’re t-boned by a drunk driver who ran a red light. These types of accidents happen every day throughout the nation, including in Kansas City, MO, and the repercussions for the victims can be devastating.
Far too many people are left with permanent disabilities, limited mobility or significant scarring or disfigurement for the rest of their lives due to the negligent actions of other people. We would all like to think that if you follow the golden rule, treat people with respect and avoid reckless behavior that puts other people in danger, that you can live a safe, healthy and happy life.
Unfortunately, that’s not always the way things work out.
These tragic events have the potential to ruin lives, not just from a physical and health standpoint but also financially. Some families are able to put aside money for unforeseen events, but many people don’t have that breathing room. Auto accidents, slip and falls and other injuries have the potential to prevent people from working and earning a living for prolonged periods of time, and in some cases permanently.
Not only do injured people have to deal with the pain and struggles caused by their injuries, but they also lack an income with which to pay for the necessary emergency medical care, surgeries, treatments and rehabilitation.

What Can You Do After a Severe Auto Accident Leaves You Injured?
The personal injury and auto accident attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga have a lot of sympathy for families struggling with the aftermath of severe injuries, such as neck and back injuries, disabilities, loss of limb, scarring and disfigurement. That’s why they’ve chosen to dedicate their careers to fighting for people going through these life-changing events.
In an ideal world, you could rely on the negligent driver’s insurance to pay for your medical bills and compensate you for lost wages and pain and suffering. The reality of these situations is not always so idyllic.
The goal of every insurance company is to make a profit, and they improve their bottom line by maximizing the premiums they take in while minimizing the claims they pay out.
There’s also the matter of policy limits to contend with. In Missouri, drivers only have to carry $25,000 of bodily injury coverage per person. After an auto accident that caused serious injury to you or a loved one, it’s all too easy to exceed that $25,000 threshold on emergency medical care and subsequent treatments.
Skilled and experienced auto accident and personal injury attorneys are intimately familiar with the legal system, insurance industry and the laws that govern injury and wrongful death cases. They know how to go after additional culpable parties to maximize the recovery you can receive.
If you’ve been injured in any type of accident caused by someone else’s negligence, whether it was tripping in a retail parking lot, getting hit by a car or truck, being bitten by a dog or any other type of event, the personal injury attorneys at Kanner & Pintaluga in Kansas City want to help you and your family.
How We Fight and Win Personal Injury Cases
We start every personal injury case with a free case evaluation. We’ll discuss the incident, your injury and our contingency fee – you don’t pay unless we win.
After you’ve given us the preliminary details of your situation our attorneys and investigators will begin taking a deep dive into your case. We’ll gather all the pertinent information – police reports, medical records, witness testimony, video and photographic evidence and anything else relevant we can get our hands on.
Our personal injury team will compile and organize all this information into a compelling and accurate narrative that clearly shows how the responsible party’s actions resulted in your injury. We’ll also use your treatment records, doctors’ diagnoses and professional medical opinions on your future health as it pertains to your injury in an attempt to quantify the monetary impact of your injuries.
Once we have your case built out, we will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf. In many cases, when the insurance company sees all the evidence they will be faced with in court if they choose to take your case to trial, they decide it will be easier and more affordable to settle your claim for a fair amount.
However, the insurance company isn’t always that reasonable. Sometimes they want to argue against your personal injury claim before a judge and jury. Our experienced trial attorneys don’t back down from a fight and will aggressively represent your interest and strive to win you the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
