Understanding Missouri & Kansas Police Accident Law
Know Your Rights So You Can Hire The Best Kansas City Police Accident Lawyer For Your Case

Are you searching for Kansas City police accident lawyers or “police accident attorneys near me”?

Are you asking yourself:

  • Can I file an injury claim against a police department if my car was hit by a police car during a high-speed chase?
  • Can I file a claim against a law enforcement agency that hurt me when attempting to arrest or question me due to excessive force?

Police officers and law enforcement employees serve and protect us every day in Missouri, Kansas, and all 50 states of the United States of America. Without these brave men and women, we would not have the quality of life nor the peace & security we all enjoy. Who do you call after an accident or crime, 911! Unfortunately, just like all other professionals (doctors, engineers, etc.) who cause damage due to negligence, a few police officers make grave mistakes also. The majority of the time it is done so negligently, just an accident, they are human, too. In rare cases, police officers cause injury, intentionally. Holding any professional accountable for their actions is what lawyers do to maintain civility and justice and prevent future injuries or death to others. If a doctor in the operating room can be sued for making a mistake when leaving a loved one deceased due to professional error, logically, a police officer can be sued for taking a life or severely injuring a citizen. When a lawyer brings this error to light and a jury awards monetary damages to citizens, police departments nationwide make positive changes in policy in areas of excessive force, high-speed pursuit, and the discharging of weapons. The Courts improve our society, police departments, and the lives of individuals who have been harmed.

High-Speed Pursuit Injury

Police accident lawyer kansas cityIn all 50 of the United States, law enforcement agencies engage in tens of thousands of high-speed police chases each year. Missouri and Kansas police departments contribute to this number. With more and more high-speed criminal pursuits come accidents resulting in severe injury or death to innocent bystanders. In the last 20 years over 305 people have been killed during high-speed pursuit vehicular crashes.  Many of these people were innocent bystanders, pedestrians, and drivers.

If you or someone you know has been in a crash involving a Kansas City police chase, you or your family may be able to receive money as compensation for your loss of health or life.  However, filing a claim against a government entity is complicated and requires extensive legal knowledge and experience due to sovereign immunity granted to law enforcement.

Kansas City Excessive Force Injury

We at Devkota Law Firm LLC have helped many victims of excessive force, and we can help you too. Contact us today to find out how we can help you with your case. Some of the common forms of excessive or unnecessary force occur in the following situations:

  • Routine traffic stops that violate police procedure
  • Illegal arrests or detentions
  • Excessive force at the conclusion of a chase
  • Racial profiling
  • Injury received while in jails, prisons, police vehicles

Police officers are highly trained professionals who are instructed to handle situations where tensions are high, and violence is a common occurrence. Officers may use force to defuse a situation, but once the situation has been controlled, any additional force is considered excessive. In instances where an individual is calm and respectful to officers, there is no excuse for any type of physical contact. Excessive force by a police officer can involve unnecessary use of a stun gun or Taser, police-issued arms or other weapons, unnecessary choking, punching, and kicking.  Excessive force injuries by police in Kansas City can result in permanent injury or death.

SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY in Kansas and Missouri for law enforcement officers, fair or unfair?

Police officers and most law enforcement employees are protected by sovereign immunity.

A simple car accident lawyer without knowledge of navigating sovereign immunity may result in an unfavorable outcome.
