FAQ

Why Should You Choose The Law Offices of Jeremiah Johnson, LLC to Represent You?

Choosing a lawyer and law firm for your Kansas City/Johnson County area personal injury or wrongful death case is no easy matter. There are literally hundreds of attorneys advertising in the phone book, on TV, on radio, the bus stop, etc, which can make it difficult to know which personal injury or wrongful death lawyer to choose. We cannot tell you that we are the right law office for your case, we can only advise you to meet with several personal injury/wrongful death attorneys to determine the best fit for you and your case.


It has been said that choosing an attorney is a bit like getting married — you are going to be working with that person for quite some time, for better or worse. Personal injury and wrongful death cases in Missouri and Kansas can last for years, with all types of ups and downs, meaning that you will necessarily have a long-term relationship with the law firm you have chosen to represent you.


We Understand What You Are Going Through

The lawyers and staff in our law firm understand the negative effects that accompany a personal injury or wrongful death case and we treat all of our clients with the respect and compassion that they deserve. We realize that you have not only had to deal with the accident's effects on loved ones, but also its effects on you, your family, and your friends.

We strive to understand our clients' situations and to represent them in a compassionate and professional manner, and not simply as another "file," as some larger law firms do. Several of us have been involved in similar types of cases and we truly understand what you may be dealing with.


Our Law Office Keeps our Missouri and Kansas Clients in the Loop

While many Missouri and Kansas personal injury/wrongful death law firms rarely contact their clients, we send all of our clients copies of important court documents, communications with opposing parties, and items uncovered in our investigation. You have probably heard a friend or acquaintance complain about how hard it is to get their lawyer to call them back - the attorney and staff in our law office return almost all calls the same day they are received and most calls are returned within a few hours.


We make ourselves accessible to all of our clients. We do not "screen" phone calls — if you call our office, you will get to speak to one of us any time they are in the office and available. Finally, to insure that we are always easy to reach, we distribute our personal cell phone numbers and email addresses to all of our Kansas and Missouri personal injury clients. Our clients are always welcome to call or email after hours or on the weekends.


We Understand How to Properly Pursue a Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Case in Missouri, Kansas, and federal courts

Successfully handling a Missouri or Kansas personal injury/wrongful death case is no easy task, even for attorneys who have practiced for decades. The tort laws (such as the laws regarding negligence, wrongful death, or strict liability) and statutes in Missouri and Kansas are filled with pitfalls that could negatively affect your case, which makes it crucial for you to have an attorney who understands tort law in Missouri and Kansas. We practice in Olathe, Kansas City, Overland Park, Leawood, Prairie Village, Lenexa, Mission, Mission Hills, Mission Woods, Shawnee, Gardner, Spring Hill, Westwood, Merriam, Fairway, Edgerton, De Soto, Roeland Park, Stillwell, Blue Springs, Liberty, Lee's Summit, Kansas City and Independence, and Johnson County, in Kansas and Missouri.


Successful personal injury/wrongful death litigation also requires a tremendous amount of work by the attorney and staff in a personal injury law firm. This means that you need a lawyer who not only understands how hard they need to work to prove your DUI claim and maximize your recovery, but is also willing to do the work necessary to protect your rights and interests and insure you recover every dollar you deserve in your case. We work hard on all of our personal injury and wrongful death cases whether they are in Kansas City, Wyandotte County, Jackson County, Johnson County, or elsewhere in Kansas and Missouri.


We understand the physics and technical aspects involved with Missouri and Kansas wrongful death and personal injury cases: 

Experience has taught us that a good understanding of the physics and technical aspects relevant in most wrongful death and personal injury cases in Kansas and Missouri. For instance, the typical auto accident case will involve dissecting the crash through vehicle inspections, site inspections, pictures, witness interviews, and contact with law enforcement. We take this information and utilize accident recinstructionists to determine what happened and to demonstrate the facts to the Court and jury.


A success story

In one of our Kansas City area wrongful death cases involving a commercial vehicle, the Kansas Highway Patrol determined that our client's deceased father was at fault in the accident. We were not discouraged, however, and we continued to work hard to prove our case and reveal the truth. After studying the case and doing extensive investigation, our office was able to successfully demonstrate that the commercial vehicle's braking systems were not working properly and that the poor brakes caused, or at the very least, contributed to the wreck and its horrible effects. The result of our efforts was swift: In a case where the best settlement offer by the defendant was $10,000, we were able to secure a "policy limits" settlement on a commercial vehicle policy which was worth many times as much as the previous "best" settlement offer by the defendant.


 We Work with Medical Providers to Prove the Damages in our Cases

To maximize the recovery in a personal injury or wrongful death case in the Kansas City / Johnson County area, a good attorney must be able to work with medical records and medical providers (such as nurses or doctors) to determine and prove what injuries resulted from the DWI car accident, the medical or physical therapy remedies that are available, and the costs which are reasonable to claim for current and future medical treatment. If your lawyer does not have the proper contacts or the proper understanding of the medical issues in your case, you might not be able to recover every dollar you should.


Our staff and attorneys exhaustively review medical reports to determine the medical issues in each personal injury case. We work closely with medical staff and medical experts to insure that we can maximize the recovery in every case. In Kansas and Missouri wrongful death cases, we also work with medical professionals to properly determine the cause of death. Such a finding is crucial because it is the Plaintiff's burden to prove the cause of death to the Court and the jury.
