Areas of Law Description
The scope of our practice includes:
- Brain Injury
Doctors often say that brain injuries are among the most difficult to detect following an accident. In many cases, the victim does not realize that even a minor concussion may result in long-term damage to cognitive abilities, physical capacity and memory. Often, determining the true extent of a brain injury requires having a personal relationship with the victim to understand the nature and severity of the injury.
- Spinal Cord Injury
There is no such thing as a minor injury to your spine. Victims of spine injuries often face years of medical treatment and diminished mobility. An entire family can be affected by one person's loss of mobility, nerve damage and other health problems.
- Birth Injury
During pregnancy, you expect a lot from your doctor. You need to be able to count on the medical advice, procedures and pre-natal care you receive, from conception through the birth of your baby. While giving birth and immediately afterward, the baby's life, as well as the mother's, is completely in the hands of medical professionals. There is no room for misjudgment, incompetence or negligence.
- Medical Malpractice
Our Kansas City, Missouri trial attorneys have earned well over $800 million in settlements and verdicts for our clients. We have experience across the spectrum of medical malpractice and medical products liability, including:
Birth injuries resulting in cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy and shoulder dystocia
Improper diagnosis of breast cancer
Failures to diagnose other serious diseases and injuries
Misdiagnosis and improper treatment
Hospital administrative and staff errors
Defective medical devices and harmful prescription medications
Dental treatment errors with severe consequences
- Business Litigation
Humphrey, Farrington & McClain is more than a nationally recognized personal injury and consumer protection litigation firm. Since 1984, one of our primary areas of successful practice has centered on helping corporations and business owners protect their rights in litigation involving breach of contracts and torts with customers and suppliers.
- Consumer Protection
Many types of cases can be handled through a legal procedure know as a class action. A class action is best suited for a matter in which numerous individuals suffered harm by the acts of another person or entity. In these cases, the class action allows the claims of hundreds, if not thousands or millions, of people to be brought in one case rather than numerous cases. Here, one or more individuals represent, or stand in the shoes of, a whole class of individuals.
- Construction Accident
Construction workers face hazardous working conditions from the moment they step onto their job site. Builders and construction engineers also put their safety in the hands of manufacturers, property owners and subcontractors on site. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you are one of over a million workers to suffer injury and lost earnings in a typical year.
- Premises Liability
When you enter a property, whether for business, pleasure or just to visit, you have a legal right to expect the property owner to do everything reasonably possible to protect your safety. Property owners and managers share liability for injuries or wrongful death suffered on property under their control. From building construction and premises design through removing unsafe conditions in a timely manner, the property owner can be held liable for money damages in premises liability lawsuits.
- Product Liability
Federal agencies such as the U.S. Consumer Protection Agency (USCPA) work to ensure that products in our marketplace are designed safely and are not dangerous when used correctly at home, on the road or on the job. After a product passes the U.S. safety test and is approved for the market, however, it does not relieve the manufacturer from liability in the event of an injury, illness or death to a consumer.
- Environmental and Toxic Exposure
We have handled state and national class actions on behalf of people whose property was contaminated by asbestos fibers, oil refinery leakage, dumping of trichloroethane (TCE) and people who purchased defective water heaters. We have also represented people with occupational injuries, such as those caused by exposure to vibration or from smoking cigarettes. Our firm has represented dozens of building-owners forced to remove asbestos, lead and other dangerous insulation and products from their buildings. Our office has handled claims against manufacturers of asbestos and other toxic and environmentally dangerous products in 17 states, including Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Texas, Minnesota, California, Ohio and West Virginia.
- Wrongful Death
We understand that while money will not replace the loss of a loved one, there is no reason a family should endure economic hardship in addition to grief. Wrongful death cases are often emotional and difficult, and unfortunately, can take a long time to resolve. We handle your case with compassion and concern for your family's needs.
- Broken Bones
Our Kansas city broken bones attorneys take every potential case seriously, empathizing with the challenges of each injured person dealing with a lengthy recovery from broken bones or trying to adjust to life with catastrophic injuries. We are prepared to investigate your case thoroughly and take action to hold insurers, a negligent product manufacturer or other responsible parties financially accountable.
- Neck and Back Injuries
A back or neck injury may create the need for surgery, extensive physical rehabilitation, long-term care, adaptive equipment and more. Many victims cannot work and need to recover lost income. Whether the cause was a car or trucking accident, an accident on a construction site or other catastrophic event, an experienced lawyer at our firm is prepared to evaluate your potential case involving:
Herniated discs, ruptured discs and dislocations
Cervical and vertebral fractures
Serious whiplash injuries that can cause both physical and neurological problems
Neck injuries related to head trauma, often accompanied by brain injury
Paraplegia, quadriplegia or other paralysis due to spinal cord injury
