How We Work

If you've been hurt from a traumatizing event, it's not easy to go about your normal life.

You did nothing wrong, but now your world has turned upside down. What do I need to do to get the compensation I am entitled to due to the negligence of others? Getting compensation for your injuries does not occur overnight. It takes time.

But rest assured, McShane & Brady will fight for what you deserve. The lawyers near you at our Kansas City law firm walk you through how it works in order to help you feel prepared and comfortable with the process.

Accident

Being involved in an accident in a traumatic event can raise many questions, one of which being "how am I going to be compensated for my injuries?" Let us take you through the process.

1.

The first step is to meet with McShane & Brady lawyers near you in Kansas City. We will go over all the details of the case with you and will advise you on a course of action.

While you continue to recover and seek treatment from the accident, we will send out a letter of representation to all parties involved. We will then begin to collect all medical records once you have completed your treatment.

2.

Based off your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, will send the appropriate parties a demand letter for the amount of damages we will be seeking.

3.

Negotiations will then begin with the defense. If an amount can be agreed upon by both parties, the case concludes. If a settlement cannot be reached, our lawyers will then file a lawsuit with the court. Discovery motions will be made and depositions will be taken.

This will lead to a mediation. A mediator will be the go between with both parties and try to negotiate a settlement. If a settlement is agreed to, the case will be dismissed. If an agreement cannot be made, we plan to go to trial.

4.

With most cases, a settlement is usually accomplished. Not often do cases go to trial. However, this is not a quick process. These cases take time. Patience is key. We will work as quickly as possible to resolve your case.

HIPAA

Having your private medical records released to unauthorized parties violates your privacy. These records contain sensitive information that only you and those authorized should have access. If your records have been compromised, here's typically how the process works.

1.

The first step is to call McShane & Brady lawyers near you in Kansas City. We will meet with you and discuss the best course of action.

We will then send a letter of representation to all parties notifying them that you have hired and attorney and all correspondence should go to us.

2.

Based on the circumstances on the case, we will send a demand letter with the amount of damages we are seeking.

3.

We will try and negotiate with the defense in the attempt to settle the case. If a settlement is reached, the case concludes. If not, our lawyers will file a lawsuit with the court.

After depositions and discovery questions have been answered, a mediator is brought in to try and settle the case. If an agreement is made, the case will be dismissed. If not, we will start making plans for a jury trial.

4.

With most cases, a settlement agreement is accomplished. However, we are fully prepared to go to trial if necessary.

Adrian F.

Auto Accident

My wife was injured in a terrible car accident. We hired an attorney that we believed would look out for our best interest. It turns out he was looking out for himself and not for us by taking our settlement and running away. We lost faith in dealing with attorneys that day, making a bad situation even tougher to deal with. After some thought, we decided to try another attorney to see if we could get the help we needed. We were referred to McShane & Brady. Maureen and Lucy restored our confidence and trust. They fought hard for us and have led the charge.
