What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident Injury in Johnson County, KS

I have helped clients across the state of Kansas receive fair compensation for their motorcycle accident injuries as a personal injury attorney in Overland Park, Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, KS and the KC metro. Many bikers who have personal injuries caused by other vehicles will need to do the following to ensure their legal rights are protected:

  • StopOnce you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important you stop. Failure to stop may constitute a felony charge or hit and run.
  • Check to See if You and Other People Have Been InjuredIt’s important to call the police and an ambulance if necessary. Medical treatment should be obtained for injuries.
  • Do Not Admit FaultThe police need information about the accident, and if you admit fault to anyone, including the police, insurance company, or other drivers, the statements can be used against you. You have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries, and admitting fault gives the police and insurance company reasons to NOT compensate you.
  • Gather All Names of Drivers and WitnessesThey can provide testimonies.

Truck Accidents

The potential damage that an 18-wheeler truck can render is undoubtedly one of the most severe kinds of damage that can lead to long-term personal injuries. Equally damaging is when a negligent truck driver fails to take responsibility for negligent behavior while delivering goods for the trucking company responsible for hiring him or her. Without a doubt, severe injuries can happen to anyone who is or has become the victim of a trucking accident.

I am Olathe attorney David S. Adams, and if you need a local personal injury attorney for a truck accident you or someone you know has been involved in, I can assure you that you will receive the most effective representation I have to give. For more than 20 years, my clients have relied on the strength of my legal experience in all areas of personal injury law. I represent clients in Olathe, Kansas, and the surrounding areas like Overland Park, Lenexa, Shawnee and Kansas City, MO for trucking accidents involving some of the following situations:

  • A semi-truck driver speeding in bad weather conditions.

  • A truck driver who fails to secure a trailer.

  • A trucking accident caused by swaying between lanes and drunk driving.

  • A trucking accident caused by an aggressive truck driver who tailgates.

  • A truck driver who swerves due to exhaustion or sleeping behind the wheel.

Why Are Truck Accidents So Serious and Potentially Fatal?

18-wheeler or semi-trailer accidents can result in serious injuries simply because these trucks are much bigger than other vehicles traveling on the road. Combined with the fact that an 18-wheeler requires a far greater stopping distance, the size of these trucks means they create a far greater force in a collision. The most common injuries resulting from truck accidents include spinal cord injuries, broken bones, brain damage, paralysis, and even wrongful death.

Slips and Falls

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere: in the grocery store, on a wet floor in the hallway, on a poorly lit staircase, or on someone’s property, and they are a common personal injury law case. The most important step you can take in any slip and fall accident is to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who can help you build a strong case. To have a successful slip and fall accident claim, you will need an experienced personal injury attorney who can prove that a property owner’s negligence was the cause of dangerous conditions.

At the Law Office of David S. Adams in Olathe, KS, I represent clients throughout Johnson County, Kansas (including Shawnee, Leawood, Overland Park, Mission, and Lenexa, KS) for personal injury claims arising out of slip and fall accidents. Since most slip and fall accidents occur from premises liability issues, certain factors must be established to begin a case:

  • There has to be an owner and proof of the premises.

  • It must be established that an accident took place on the owner’s property.

  • All injuries must be the direct result of the property owner’s negligence of the premises.

Slip-and-fall accidents can be serious. These injuries can occur on public or private premises. If you were injured in a fall in a grocery store or at a private residence, you may be able to bring a claim for damages.

Medical Malpractice

If you were injured because your physician or medical facility was negligent, it is important to speak with a medical malpractice attorney. Patients put their health in the hands of many good and competent doctors. However, medical professionals can sometimes cause severe injuries to patients. These injuries can be caused by misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, or doctors giving the wrong prescription. Most doctors are good, but some do not look out for their patients as they should. An experienced personal injury attorney can also represent clients who wish to bring a wrongful death claim on behalf of a loved one who passed away due to hospital or physician error.
