When crashes happen, they can leave people badly injured. While someone may be able to get medical care and recover, the time between the injury and recovery can still be a struggle. Victims may have trouble with money, pain, depression and many other issues.
Two people were badly hurt when a 3-vehicle crash took place on Interstate 57. The Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived to help at around 5:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes.
Broken bones can be painful and life-altering. They can make it so you can't work or do the things you love. They can be broken so badly that you're forced to have surgeries or an amputation.
When you're hurt, the last thing you want to do is to struggle with knowing how to pay for your medical care. You don't want to worry about affording food or knowing how you're going to pay your bills.
Drivers need to pay attention on the roads. They need to watch where they're going and to give themselves enough time to make turns without forcing other traffic to slow down. Unfortunately, people are prone to human error, and those errors can result in significant collisions.
You and your children were traveling back from their school when you saw it: A large truck was heading toward you and was not slowing down. As that vehicle approached quickly, you looked for anywhere you could get out of the way, but there were no shoulders or areas where you could move out of the lane. As a result, you ended up in a head-on collision with the truck to put as much distance between your children and the vehicle as possible.
Personal injuries range from head injuries to broken bones. If you have suffered an injury recently, you might be dealing one that affects your arm or arms. If so, then you are probably acutely aware of how frustrating an arm injury can be.
A driver who transports passengers in their vehicles in Kansas City takes a great responsibility on themselves when they choose to do so. They are charged with the safety of all of those in the car. Like most, you might assume that responsibility ends with them driving safely so as to avoid any unnecessary risks, yet it even goes farther than that, even down to making sure that everyone is wearing their seat belts.
Regardless of whether or not you are a dog lover, it is difficult to deny that canines provide millions of Americans with loving companionship. Indeed, the ease at which they can be trained and domesticated often causes many to look past the fact that they are still animals, and as animals, they possess certain instincts that can lead them to act aggressively. If you have been bitten by a dog, you know this better than most. You also know that such an injury can be costly, and can have you wondering whether you can hold their owners legally liable. Many have come to us here at The Law Office of Michael J. Joshi with the same question. The answer depends on where the incident occurred.
As a parent in Kansas City, you naturally worry about your kids. Yet you likely take some comfort in knowing that your teaching and example at home have taught them sound judgment (and that such judgment will help keep them out of potentially dangerous situations). While that may be true in many cases, there may be some things that seem so enticing to children (particularly young children) that they cannot be expected to understand the dangers that they pose. Such things are often referred to (in the legal world) as attractive nuisances.
