At the Wendt Law Firm P.C., we recommend speaking to a personal injury attorney after sustaining any type of injury, such as a car accident or a burn injury, that resulted in significant pain and suffering, medical bills, or missed time at work. Every case is different, and our experienced lawyers can carefully examine the details of your individual case and help determine your next course of action in the legal system. If your injuries are catastrophic, or if a loved one passed away in the accident, you should definitely seek legal counsel. Our initial case evaluations are completely free, giving you the opportunity to discuss your rights without risk or obligation. You could discover that you’re eligible for significant financial recovery. And, if you decide our legal team is the best fit for your lawsuit, we provide all injury services on a contingency fee basis, meaning you only pay us if you win.
Our firm fights for maximum financial compensation so that each one of our clients gets the justice they deserve.
There are certain elements that enable an injury victim to pursue financial recovery through the civil court system. These elements must be present in your accident to constitute grounds for a lawsuit. Someone else’s negligence, recklessness, intent to harm, or unlawful act must have caused or contributed to your injuries. The majority of personal injury cases center on the legal doctrine of negligence.
Some cases, however, do not require the injured party to prove negligence. Product liability claims, for example, rely on proof that a product had a defect and that this defect caused the injury. There is no need to prove that the manufacturing company committed an act of negligence. Understanding the specific elements you’ll need to bring a claim in Kansas City or Missouri requires help from an experienced personal injury attorney.

Handling accident and injury cases in Kansas and Missouri pose unique challenges that your attorney must be equipped to handle. One of the largest cities in the country, the Kansas City metropolitan area is a bi-state region of 2.1 million people anchored by Kansas City, Missouri. An accident lawyer in Kansas City should be licensed by the state bar of both Kansas and Missouri, and have significant experience with both the state’s court system and legal statutes. This way, they are prepared to handle anything that comes up in your case.
Our founding attorney, Samuel Wendt, is not only licensed in Kansas and Missouri but has been recognized as one of the top 100 attorneys in both states. There are subtle but important differences in laws and legal statutes that pertain to personal injury cases in each state, most notably the difference in the time you have to file a claim. The statute of limitations in Kansas is two years from the date of the incident, while in Missouri, it’s five years.
Beyond licensing and statutes, hiring an attorney for a serious injury case is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. Be sure that your personal injury attorney has a track record of success. Our firm has secured well over $100,000,000 for our clients, including over $89,000,000 in settlements against pharmaceutical companies. Our success record gives us an advantage in settlement negotiations and the resources that we need to hire investigators, pay for medical bills, and allow our clients to focus on their recovery.
