Kansas City Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Injuries to People Hit by a Drunk Driver

At the law firm of Dempsey & Kingsland, P.C., we are familiar with the devastating impact of drunk driving accidents. We share the anger over a senseless decision by one person that leads to lasting injuries and financial hardships for the victims and their families.

Our legal team is committed to holding drivers accountable for crashes they caused while intoxicated or high. We pursue full compensation for victims of drunk drivers in the greater Kansas City area in both Missouri and Kansas.

Call us at 816-421-6868 for a free consultation if there were serious injuries and you suspect the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Kansas City Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Personal injury lawyers Lee Dempsey and Bob Kingsland have handled hundreds of car accident cases. If alcohol is suspected as a factor, they know how to guide the investigation to demonstrate that the driver's judgment and ability to control the vehicle were impaired.

In addition to damages for medical care, lost income and pain and suffering, Missouri law allows for punitive damages in a drunk driver accident for aggravated liability such as:

  • Speeding or tailgating
  • Running a red light or stop sign
  • Crossing the center line
  • Driving without headlights
  • Driving on a suspended license

That same negligence often makes the injuries worse in drunk driver accidents, especially when the intoxicated driver drifts into an oncoming lane or plows into the other car (or pedestrian) without braking.

We have medical consultants on call who help us determine appropriate compensation for the physical, financial and emotional fallout. We have recovered damages for the long-term needs from catastrophic injuries such as head injury, spinal injury, amputation and burn injuries, and we have verdicts and settlements for wrongful death.

Missouri's dram shop law also allows for third party lawsuits against a bar, restaurant, liquor store or party host who negligently provided alcohol to an underage or already intoxicated person.
