Drunk Driving Accident
Attorneys in Kansas City, MO

Injured by a Drunk Driver? We Can Help.

Our firm is passionate about fighting drunk driving. We have a brother who was seriously hurt by a fifth-time drunk driver. It was midnight and he was on his way home from studying at a medical library. Very few cars were on the street. He stopped for a red light and the drunk driver rear-ended him at 50 mph. The injuries knocked him out of his ability to attend school or work for an extensive period of time. His injuries still bother him today. If you or a loved one has been involved in a drunk driving accident, you have experienced a senseless tragedy. These accidents tend to have the most devastating consequences. Victims of drunk driving crashes often suffer serious, life-altering injuries, or are killed as the result of the other driver’s conduct. Because a driver made the choice to violate state law and impair their ability to drive, you and your family may be coping with immense grief, mounting medical bills, and other damages. Even if the negligent driver shows remorse, it is still unfair to you and your family. The drunk driver must accept responsibility and his or her insurance company must do everything in its power to pay for the harm the driver caused.

At Cullan & Cullan, our Kansas City drunk driving accident attorneys are also medical doctors. We recognize how difficult recovering after a drunk driving accident can be, physically, emotionally, and financially. Every victim deserves justice after such an accident and a civil suit against the drunk driver can be the means to achieve it.

To discuss your rights and options, call (816) 253-8606. Your consultation is free and confidential.

Take Legal Action After a Drunk Driving Accident

A drunk driving accident can have a wide range of consequences on a victim and their family. In the event of an injury accident, a victim may suffer from:

These may have the potential to result in life-long disfigurement, physical disability, and/or mental impairments. Recovery after such injuries can take a very long time – if a full recovery is even possible – and the mounting medical costs and emotional distress of the situation can make recovery even harder.

Obtaining compensation through a personal injury claim can give you the financial stability to ensure the best recovery possible and protect your future well-being. Financial stability is also important for the grieving family of someone who has lost their life in a drunk driving accident. Losing a loved one can take an immense toll on your family’s emotional health and financial resources. Getting the money you need to take care of your family while holding the at-fault driver accountable can help you find at least some closure during such a difficult time.

Damages You Can Recover

A successful personal injury or wrongful death claim after a drunk driving accident can help you get the money you need for damages such as:

  • Medical bills (past and future)
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • At-home care
  • Rehabilitative therapy
  • Counseling
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
