Dangerous Roads and Highways

Kansas City and Johnson County Car Accident Attorneys

When we drive on Kansas and Missouri roads and highways, we assume we are safe. Unfortunately, unsafe roads and road conditions often contribute to major car accidents and injuries. Road hazards such as poorly marked highway construction zones shorten drivers' reaction times, leading to catastrophic car accident injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and fractures.

If you have been seriously injured in a car crash on Highway 435, I-70 or I-35, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At The Law Offices of Jeremiah L. Johnson, LLC in Olathe, Kansas, we are committed to pursuing money damages for our client's medical bills, rehabilitation and lost wages. We serve 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.

We work on a contingency fee basis, so you pay no money upfront. If we recover damages through negotiation or settlement, our law firm takes a contingency fee from the recovery. We do not bill hourly fees, court costs or other expenses, because we want to make your life as uncomplicated as possible at this difficult time.

There are time limits on filing personal injury claims, so we recommend you consult a skilled personal injury lawyer to see if you have a truck accident claim. To set up your free no-risk initial consultation, contact our Olathe, Kansas, law offices today. An attorney will meet with you privately, answer your questions and explain how the contingency fee schedule works.

Establishing Negligence

When we accept your highway accident claim, we look for ways to prove the negligence or carelessness that caused your personal injury, including:

  • Poor signage
  • Poor maintenance
  • Shoulders with a high drop-off or soft shoulders
  • Lack of firm, wide shoulders, guard rails or warning signs
  • Poor roadway design, including hairpin turns, steep grades or intersections
  • Road construction zones

Other factors contribute to serious car accident injuries, including driver fatigue, texting while driving or impaired driving. The motorist who hit you may have been driving faster than the road conditions allowed, or the highway may be carrying more traffic than it is designed for, leading to severe congestion at certain hours of the day or night. Adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow or fog may make dangerous roadways and intersections even harder to safely navigate.
