What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury refers to physical or psychological harm that an individual suffers due to someone else’s negligence or wrongful actions.

Injury Compensation in Kansas & Missouri

In both Kansas and Missouri, victims of personal injury can seek various types of compensation (also known as "damages") when they are injured due to someone else's negligence. The specifics of what compensation is available can vary based on the details of each case, the severity of the injuries, and the laws in each state. Generally, the following types of compensation might be available:

  • Medical Expenses: Covers both past and future medical treatments related to the injury.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to the injury, including future earning capacity if the victim can no longer work as before.
  • Pain and Suffering: For physical discomfort and emotional distress caused by the injury.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the impact on the relationship between the injured person and their spouse.

Who Pays for Personal Injury Damages?

In personal injury cases, the party responsible for causing the injury is typically held liable to pay for damages. However, in practice, the compensation often comes from various sources, depending on the circumstances of the injury and the insurance policies involved. Here's a breakdown of who might end up paying for personal injury damages:

  • Insurance Companies: In many cases, insurance is the primary source of compensation for personal injury damages. This could be the liability insurance of the person or entity at fault (e.g., auto insurance for car accidents, homeowners' insurance for injuries on property, or professional liability insurance in cases of malpractice).
  • Individuals or Entities at Fault: If the damages exceed the insurance coverage limits or if insurance is not applicable, the individual or entity responsible for the injury may have to pay out of pocket. This can be the case in situations where insurance is not available or the policy limits are too low to cover all damages.
  • Employers: Under certain circumstances, if the injury occurred while the victim was performing job-related duties, the employer might be responsible for compensation, typically through workers' compensation insurance. Workers' compensation can cover medical expenses and a portion of lost wages, regardless of fault.
  • Government Entities: If the injury was caused by the negligence of a government agency or employee (e.g., due to poorly maintained public property), the government entity might be liable for damages. Claims against government entities often have special filing requirements and limitations.
  • Third Parties: In some cases, a third party unrelated to the immediate incident might be held liable. For example, a manufacturer could be responsible for damages if a product defect caused the injury.
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: If the at-fault party does not have insurance or has insufficient coverage, the victim's own uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage (if they have it) can provide compensation, especially in auto accident cases.
  • Health Insurance: While health insurance does not cover liability for injuries caused, it can pay for the victim's medical treatment upfront. The health insurance company may then seek reimbursement from the at-fault party's insurer through a process known as subrogation.

How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Kansas & Missouri?

The time limits for filing a personal injury claim in Kansas and Missouri are set by each state's statute of limitations. These laws dictate how long a person has to file a lawsuit after an injury occurs. It's crucial to be aware of these deadlines because if you attempt to file a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has expired, your case is likely to be dismissed, barring a few exceptions.


  • For personal injury claims in Kansas, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of the injury.


  • In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally five years from the date of the injury.
  • For wrongful death claims, the statute of limitations is generally three years from the date of death.

These time frames are general guidelines, and there can be exceptions based on specific circumstances, such as injuries that were not discovered immediately. Additionally, claims against government entities may have different deadlines and require additional procedural steps, such as filing a notice of claim before you can sue.

What Is a Contingency Fee?

In Kansas and Missouri, personal injury lawyers typically work on a contingency fee basis. This payment structure means that the lawyer’s fees depend on the outcome of your case. Here’s how it works:

  • No Upfront Costs: Clients do not pay upfront fees when hiring our firm, instead, the attorneys’ fees are contingent upon winning the case or securing a settlement.
  • Percentage of the Settlement Award: Upon the success of your case, a percentage-based fee will be deducted from your settlement. With Kendall Law Group, you know this percentage from the day you sign our employment agreement. The fee percentage varies but is based on the complexity of your case.
  • Expenses: In addition to the contingency fee, your lawyer may deduct costs and expenses related to your case from your settlement These expenses are for things your attorney pays for out-of-pocket such as fees for obtaining medical records, court fees and expert witness fees.
  • No Win, No Fee: If there is no recovery, you do not hold a financial obligation to our firm.

Common Personal Injuries in Kansas City

We are well acquainted with the wide spectrum of personal injuries that can dramatically alter lives. Our experience has shown us that with the increase in complexity of injuries, the medical expenses and overall impact on life can escalate significantly. Here's a closer look at the common types of injuries we encounter and support our clients through:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage, affecting everything from cognitive functions to physical abilities and emotional well-being. The path to recovery can be long and requires extensive medical care.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis: These injuries are among the most life-altering, potentially leading to partial or complete paralysis. The need for ongoing care, rehabilitation, and adaptive equipment contributes to the significant costs associated with these injuries.
  • Severe Burns: Beyond the immediate pain and risk of infection, severe burns often necessitate prolonged treatment, including surgeries and skin grafts, not to mention the emotional and psychological support needed for recovery.
  • Bone Fractures and Complex Orthopedic Injuries: Complicated fractures and injuries to the musculoskeletal system can require multiple surgeries, physical therapy, and lengthy periods of rehabilitation to restore function and mobility.
  • Amputations: The loss of a limb is not only a significant physical challenge but also an emotional and psychological journey. Adaptation and rehabilitation costs, including prosthetics, can be substantial.
  • Serious Emotional and Psychological Trauma: Injuries don't just leave physical scars; the impact on mental health can be profound. Treatment for emotional and psychological trauma is essential for a holistic recovery but adds to the overall financial burden.
  • Wrongful Death: The ultimate tragedy, the loss of a loved one due to negligence, leaves families facing not only emotional devastation but often significant financial strain from medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of income.
