School bus strikes elderly man crossing street

Buses are ever present on streets and highways around the county. Whether they are taking a student home from school or a family across the country to see relatives, buses have the reputation of being a safe and fairly non-expensive form of transport. But like every other vehicle on the road buses are involved in accidents some of which are minor and others that have last consequences for those involved.

Railing effectiveness on the severity of car accidents

Most people think little of all the safety features that adorn Kansas City streets and highways alike. One of the most prevent form of street safety are the barriers that split the opposite flowing traffic.

Can I sue even after the MO statute of limitations has expired?

You buy a new Missouri house and love it like your first born. Two years later you see a small crack in the foundation, but pay it no mind. Two years after that, the small crack has grown and will now take thousands of dollars to fix. You find out that the surgery you had four years ago was botched, and now you will have more to correct the mistake. You finally get around to suing the driver of the fender bender from three years ago. What all these situations have in common is the statute of limitations.

Additional defective airbags recalled in Kansas City, MO

Kansas City, Missouri, victims of defective products should be aware of the rights and legal protections that exist for consumers. Regulators in the U.S. recently reported that another 30,687 airbag inflators were made with an incorrect part that causes the possibility of similar ruptures as the airbags that have already been recalled. One auto maker has added to its previous recall of SUVs because the vehicle model recalled may "[p]ropel metal fragments out of its air bags toward occupants." The latest announcement applies to newer vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that airbags from June 2008 to June 2014 will be the subject of this latest recall. According to the information, "an incorrect outer baffle could cause the unit to rupture." The most recent recall appears to apply to two car makers.
