  • Wrongful death and severe personal injury claims related to crime against patrons for landowners/lessees

SWRS attorneys litigate personal injury cases every day in state and federal court all over the Midwest, with primary focus in Kansas and Missouri. Over the last two decades, SWRS attorneys have tried numerous personal injury jury trials every year. This active trial practice helps SWRS attorneys keep their pulse on the trends in a variety of different venues and new theories of recovery in these jurisdictions.

We understand the needs of our clients to timely conduct a complete and early claim analysis and to accurately assess the positives and negatives of a claim from inception. Through this analysis, our attorneys determine as early as possible which cases should settle and which cases should be tried.
