Marsha A. Friedman Law Office
The Law Office of Marsha Friedman provides competent, reliable legal guidance and support for clients who need legal counsel in a variety of areas including personal injury, car accidents, product liability, nursing home abuse, wrongful death, insurance bad faith, and denial of life insurance benefits. As a trusted personal injury attorney in the Kansas City and surrounding areas of Missouri, Marsha Friedman focuses on the following practice areas, bringing an unparalleled level of professionalism and skill to clients.
Personal Injury and Car Accidents: The majority of accidents leaving innocent people injured are the result of car accidents. However, other accidents require obtaining the support of a capable Kansas City injury lawyer, including slip and fall, motorcycle/truck, and bicycle or construction accidents.
Any accident that results in injury serious enough to require medical attention and that possibly prevents the victim from working or performing everyday tasks may be considered grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Victims of negligence deserve compensation of costs including medical, lost wages, future income, pain/suffering, and more.
Product Liability is an area of the law that most people do not understand, until they become a victim. Defective products, whether prescription or over-the-counter drugs, medical devices, auto defects, farm equipment defects, power tools, or children's toys and bedding account for thousands of injuries each year. Manufacturers, distributors, and others may be held accountable in the event a consumer sustains injury or even loses his or her life because of faulty or defective products, also referred to as "product liability" in the legal arena.
Nursing Home Abuse is a huge concern not only in the Kansas City area and throughout the state of Missouri, but across the nation. Residents of nursing homes are often neglected, not given medications in a timely manner, even sexually abused in some cases. Residents should be well cared for in terms of bathing and personal hygiene, nutrition, medications, and other areas - unfortunately, they are too often abused or neglected. Whether you are a resident or family member, signs of nursing home abuse should be reported to administrators. You will also want to consult with a compassionate Missouri personal injury lawyer such as Marsha Friedman, who is dedicated to securing exceptional results for clients.
Wrongful Death: Any time the negligence of an individual, manufacturer, distributor, or other party results in the death of an innocent victim, surviving family members may wish to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A drunk driver, defective product, nursing home abuse, even a dog attack may result in the death of an innocent person.
Wrongful death lawsuits may be filed by spouses, siblings, parents, children, or other immediate family members in the event an individual loses his or her life due to the negligence or deliberate wrongdoing of another person.
Insurance Bad Faith: We all have insurance, which we expect to take care of us in the event of a car accident, fire or catastrophic event that destroys our homes, or when we require a physician's care or hospitalization due to injury or health conditions. While we continue to faithfully pay our premiums month after month, year after year, the insurance companies are often not so quick to provide the coverage they promise.
Insurance providers are supposed to pay out claims and cover us according to the terms of the policy. Unfortunately, many delay filing claims, fail to pay out a settlement promptly, or even deny payment of your claim. Like other companies, insurance companies are in business to earn a profit. When an insurance provider does not carry out their promise according to the terms set forth in your policy, they may be acting in "bad faith." Contact Marsha Friedman's law office promptly to ensure the bad faith actions of your insurance company are resolved promptly.
Denial of Life Insurance Benefits: Life insurance companies typically have an entire arsenal of excuses in denying claims, including alleged fraud, misrepresentation, suicide, missed premium payment, beneficiary change, even errors on an application. If you are the beneficiary on a life insurance policy and benefits have been denied, it is urgent that you consult with an aggressive attorney who will fight vigorously to ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to.
Marsha Friedman is a Kansas City personal injury lawyer who is dedicated and focused, determined to provide clients in Missouri with the most effective legal guidance and representation possible.
