Have You Been Injured By Someone Else's Negligence?

Personal injuries are life-changing events that can result in loss of income, a mountain of medical bills and years of grueling physical rehabilitation.

Personal injury victims may be entitled to compensation for both their injuries and the damages that result. These damages can include:

  • Past and future loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Long-term care

At Shelton Law Office, P.A. in Overland Park, Kansas, we aggressively pursue the best possible results for our clients. Our goal is to give personal injury victims the opportunity to heal and to rebuild their lives.

Do You Have A Legal Case?

Negligence occurs when someone does not exercise the proper amount of care under the circumstances. A simple example is driving too fast in slippery road conditions.

Personal injury cases emerge when someone's negligence injures someone else.

How Personal Injury Cases Work

Personal injury lawsuits can grow out of a wide variety of situations. Some of the most common personal injury lawsuits are the result of:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Automobile accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products
  • Assaults

The person who brings the lawsuit is called the plaintiff. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff is trying to gain compensation from those responsible for the injuries.

Most cases settle and do not go to trial. At Shelton Law Office, P.A., however, we take nothing for granted. We prepare every case as if it will reach the courtroom, where we draw on our extensive trial experience.

What Is A Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a subset of personal injury litigation. The difference with wrongful death suits, however, is the victim's injuries were fatal.

Just as in personal injury cases, damages can be sought from the party that caused the death. If you have a loved one who died as the result of a wrongful death, you may be entitled to compensation.
