T-BONE COLLISION CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY IN KANSAS CITY & MISSOURI
Contact an Experienced Kansas City Auto Accident Lawyer Today
T-Bone collisions are auto accidents where one vehicle collides with the side of another, as opposed to the front or back. These types of accidents, while not as common, are often far more dangerous than a rear-end collision accident. This is largely due to the fact that t-bone collisions usually occur at higher speeds and, by nature, vehicles are much less safe when struck from the side, particularly with today’s lightweight materials.

At Adler & Manson, we can put our award-winning experience to work for you by representing you in front of judges and insurance companies. With over $80 million in recoveries so far, you can trust us to capably pursue the relief you deserve.
Statute of Limitations in Missouri
If you have been injured in an auto accident in the state of Missouri, you do have legal rights to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injuries. However, in order to receive this compensation, you must file your lawsuit within a certain amount of time after the accident. This law is known as a “Statute of Limitations.”
Missouri has the following Statutes of Limitations set for auto accident cases:*
- For accidents in which someone was injured (including any pedestrians, passengers, bicyclists, or other parties involved), the statute of limitations is usually set at five years from the date of the accident.
- For accidents in which someone was killed, the statute of limitations is usually three years from the date of their death (which may be different from the date of the accident).
