I wouldn’t want to have gone through this process with any other firm. They fought for me and exceeded all expectations when it came to my settlement. Richard James is hands on and I was surprised how involved a partner in the firm actually was. Jeff Wilson was knowledgeable and fantastic to work with. Tilette was compassionate and held my hand throughout the entirety of the process. Chris was also very empathetic and stood by my side during a court appearance that I was initially very nervous to attend. Devaughn James works as a team to be sure to give top notch service. I simply could not be more happy with the outcome and they made the process as painless as possible. If you’re searching for the best representation this is the firm to call.

Kansas City's Frequently Asked Questions From Car Accident Victims

Our personal injury firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means that we don’t get paid unless you get paid. With our “No Fee Guarantee” you pay nothing unless we win or settle your case.

If you were involved in an accident but didn’t suffer any injuries or damages, you may not need an attorney’s help. However, if you or someone you love has suffered injuries due to another’s person negligence, you may need an attorney to protect your rights. Insurance companies are in business to make money, and sometimes they deny valid claims and try to push early and unjust settlements on innocent accident victims. They may use low-ball offers to drag out claims until you settle. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, the Kansas City personal injury attorneys at DeVaughn James are here to help. Contact us at (816) 999-9999 or visit our office at 10450 Holmes Rd #110, Kansas City, MO 64131.

  • Remain calm and contact the Kansas City police or proper authorities.
  • Seek medical attention if needed.
  • Do not admit fault or apologize.
  • Take photos of the scene, damage, and injuries.
  • Contact a Kansas City car accident attorney.

The negligent party may be held financially responsible for your property damage, pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

Car insurance requirements vary by state, and Kansas and Missouri have their own specific requirements that drivers must meet. If you’re a driver in either state, make sure that you have the minimum required coverage to comply with state laws. It’s also a good idea to consider optional coverage to protect yourself and your car in case of an accident.

While both Kansas and Missouri follow a fault system for car accidents, there are significant differences in how fault is determined, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, damages, and insurance requirements.
