Kuhlman & Lucas, LLC, the best personal injury attorneys in Kansas City recently represented a family whose son was killed after a man high on drugs slammed into the client’s vehicle. Due to the fact that that the driver was found guilty and was sentenced to jail time, this was a damages-only hearing, but our firm was able to obtain a $12 million judgment for the family.

The court ruled that the Defendant’s actions showed no concern and a complete disregard for the safety of others, causing the Plaintiff to suffer pecuniary losses of $1.4 million, non-economic losses of $2.8 million and just over $6,000 in funeral expenses. In addition to this, punitive damages were awarded in the amount of approximately $8.4 million.
