Sexual Abuse Lawyer

We believe survivors of molestation, sexual abuse, assault and child sexual abuse deserve to have their voices heard, their interests advocated for and their safety protected.

Our Kansas City sexual abuse attorneys are dedicated to helping victims and survivors of these terrible acts. Each member of our staff has received extensive education to become “trauma-trained” so we are able to effectively and compassionately understand what our clients have been through and what they are currently going through in the legal process.

In many sexual assault cases the victims are children. Horrendously, adults often take advantage of the authority or trust they hold over children. In instances such as these, a  sexual abuse lawyer can hold abusers – and the organizations that have enabled their acts – accountable.

The field of sexual abuse and assault law covers a wide range of cases, including but not limited to: ·

The legal process to recover for those affected by sexual abuse is not an easy road – often taking lengthy investigations and difficult discussions with survivors. Sexual abuse attorneys often must work side by side with law enforcement officers to receive justice. Survivors’ rights to privacy is paramount in representing our clients.

At Monsees & Mayer P.C., our Kansas City sexual abuse attorneys represent survivors of sexual abuse with years of experience and have recovered six and seven figure settlements for survivors. Learn more.

Car Accident Lawyer

A car accident can be one of the most horrifying incidents a person experiences, and unfortunately, the difficulties resulting from an accident injury can travel well past the actual day of the crash.

Car accident victims often have ongoing medical issues, insurance difficulties, financial damages, and additional struggles. Many states have limits on monetary recovery that only a highly qualified and experienced automobile accident attorney can navigate.

While “soft tissue” claims with clear facts do not require specialization, many automobile accident cases are much more complicated.

  • Were impartial witnesses present?
  • Is there evidence that only experts would be able to uncover?
  • Were the injuries complex enough to warrant the work of an expert who can determine future disability?
  • How much income may be lost as a result of the accident?

These questions and many more can only be answered by a car accident attorney that has experience and acumen in the field of automotive accidents. Our Kansas City car accident lawyers maximize the amount of financial recovery you can obtain, offering comprehensive representation in motor vehicle accident types including:

Our Kansas City car accident attorneys handle cases across all interstate and highways in Missouri and Kansas including I-35, I-435, I-70, I-29, I-49, Hwy 50, Hwy 71, Hwy 350, and many others.

Wrongful Death Attorney

It is a bleak and unfortunate truth, but unintentional deaths occur every single day. The laws surrounding this type of death are constantly changing. In just Kansas and Missouri, wrongful death laws have changed significantly in the last 25 years. Both states have tried to eliminate injustices found in the wrongful death statutes of their respective states through legal amendments. In Kansas, the cap on damages has been raised, and Missouri has amended its own statute to include a wider list of parties who can recover damages in wrongful death suits.

By hiring the right wrongful death attorney, you have a compassionate advocate on your side that can make navigating this ordeal much less stressful. The Kansas City wrongful death attorneys of Monsees & Mayer P.C., will fight for you, holding negligent parties accountable in order to get your loved ones their rightful compensation.

We aid clients in a range of cases, including:

Kansas City Serious Injury Law Firm

When an individual suffers a serious or catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another, it is crucial to hire an Injury attorney with years of experience. A successful outcome in the courtroom relies heavily on choosing the best representation. Oftentimes, serious injury cases involve long, and arduous hospital stays and high medical fees, requiring attorneys well-versed in legal and medical matters. Our Kansas City injury lawyers have years of experience helping clients who have suffered injuries including:

  • Brain Injury

Our ultimate goal is to find you the relief that you so greatly deserve.

Premises Liability Attorney

If you are injured on someone else’s property contact one our Kansas City premise liability attorneys.  There is a common misconception that if one is injured on another’s premises, the landowner is automatically held at fault for the injuries. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. It is often much more complicated, as a property owner is only liable for injuries on the premises when he knows of a danger and does not exercise due care to fix whatever danger exists or fails to provide a warning that the danger is present. Under certain circumstances, a landowner may be found responsible for an injury when he simply should have known that it exists.

The level of protection provided for entrants to the land depends highly on the status of the injured party. Were they a welcome guest, such as a customer at a store? Or were they trespassing on land that the owner did not expect any individuals to enter? These circumstances can greatly impact any attempt at recovering for injured parties.

Cases that a landowner could be found at fault for often include neglecting upkeep for their properly or a lack of care for the safety of visitors. Common cases of negligence include:

  • Bar/Lounge Liability
  • Dangerous Premises
  • Slip and Fall
  • Defective Premises
  • Dramshop Litigation
  • Intentional Shootings
  • Toxic Exposure
  • Electrocution
  • Negligent Employees
  • Negligent Security
  • Premises Assault
  • Property Defects

Property owners have a legal obligation to care for the safety of their visitors. Monsees & Mayer P.C.’s Kansas City Premises Liability attorneys are confident in bringing claims against shopping malls, large retailers and manufacturers, grocery stores, restaurants, apartment complexes, and construction companies, as well as homeowners and local municipalities.

Product Liability Lawyer

Product liability, also known as defective product litigation, is a very complex and specialized area of law. The term “dangerous product” refers to any type of product that has a high likelihood or risk of injuring users. A product can be considered dangerous through inherent use, such as firearms, but some products are seemingly safe under most conditions and are made dangerous through modification. Product liability law, as a result, is the means by which a consumer can obtain compensation for injuries suffered through the dangers of a product. Generally speaking,  product liability cases fall into one of three categories:

  • Defective Design: The product’s design is inherently dangerous, making it defective and unsafe for consumers.
  • Defective Manufacture: The product was designed to be safe, but through faulty manufacturing may be dangerous to consumers. This may be as widespread as entire batches of products, or as specialized as a single faulty product.
  • Defective Warnings or Instructions: The product is designed and manufactured to be safe, but through negligent instructions or warnings included with the product, may be unsafe for consumers.

Challenges for Product Liability Cases

Laws surrounding defective products require expertise and experience from your product liability lawyer. This type of case often requires the compensation of engineers who can testify on your behalf to prove defective design, manufacturing, or incomplete product warnings.

The Kansas City product liability lawyers of Monsees & Mayer P.C. have years of experience and extensive connections to experts who can help in proving your case.

Recreational Vehicle Accident Attorney

Recreational activities are supposed to be a form of relaxation and exercise. However, there are often instances where the negligence of sporting goods manufacturers, event organizers, and facility owners neglect to keep participants safe. Therefore, it is important to hire an experienced recreational injury lawyer when seeking recovery for your injury.
