Attorneys James Thompson and Mike White of Edelman & Thompson, obtained a $2.24 million jury verdict for their client on a serious automobile collision case in Kansas City. The police officer, relying on the defendant’s statement, originally pinned the fault on our client because she struck the rear corner of the defendant’s car. Unfortunately, at the scene, she was unable to give a statement due to her severe injuries. Despite the fact that our client insisted the defendant turned abruptly in front of her, the defendant and his insurance company refused to take responsibility for her injuries.

SideBySide

With the assistance of an accident reconstruction expert, James and Mike were able to convince the jury that the defendant was primarily at fault in causing the crash. In addition, James and Mike introduced the testimony of our client’s treating physician and provided documentation of her medical bills which led to the substantial jury verdict. “For Edelman and Thompson, there was real satisfaction in winning such a sizable verdict for our client because of the devastating injuries she sustained, the medical bills she incurred and the fact that she may never be able to work again,” said James Thompson, partner, Edelman & Thompson. “These kinds of cases remind us that the American judicial system provides the opportunity to balance the scales of justice and right wrongs, no matter how powerful the opponent.”

More than $207,000 raised for local charities.

Kansas City Royals fans have been treated to an exciting season of baseball this year, and these grateful fans are paying it forward by supporting the Royals Charities’ 50/50 raffle in a big way. So far this season, more than $414,000 has been raised, with half that amount going to local charities and the other half to the lucky fans holding the winning ticket at each of the Royals’ home games. Edelman & Thompson has been proud to partner with Royals Charities this season and thanks every fan who went to the ballpark and supported this effort.

The courage to make our communities safer – and better
by James Thompson and Ron Edelman
Partners, Edelman & Thompson

Too often it takes a tragedy to bring to light unsafe practices that need changing: a child drowns in a swimming pool, an infant pulls over a small dresser, an exhausted truck driver crosses the yellow line, a woman is left unattended in a hospital bathroom.

For over 20 years, the attorneys at Edelman & Thompson have helped our clients and their families tell their stories and bring about changes so that other families need not suffer the same injury. Our clients have had the courage to speak out and make something positive for others out of the tragedies they have endured. It’s been our privilege to fight alongside our clients to make our communities safer – and better.

Some of our serious injury cases have brought about changes in the law, changes in industry practices and changes at individual workplaces. It’s one of the tremendous satisfactions of our role as attorneys to join with our clients to bring about these kinds of meaningful changes.

Not every case we take breaks new ground or sets new legal precedents, but every case makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

Over the years, the lawyers at Edelman & Thompson have won numerous multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for the clients we represent. Partner James Thompson is a member of the exclusive Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, limited to attorneys who have achieved multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.

The fact that our firm has successfully handled so many major cases and verdicts is one measure of our attorneys’ ability to handle serious injury cases and complex litigation.

Here is a partial list of major settlements and verdicts.

  • $8.5 million product liability
  • $7.2 million pool drowning
  • $5.1 million asbestos claim
  • $4.6 million truck accident
  • $2.75 million premises liability
  • $2.2 million work injury truck accident
  • $2.0 million truck accident
  • $2.0 million product liability
  • $1.9 million auto accident
  • $1.5 million motorcycle accident

Edelman & Thompson is launching a new ad campaign focused on the dangers of distracted driving. The ads bring home the dangers caused on the road by drivers focused on texting and phone calls rather than safe driving.

Partner James Thompson said, “When I started practicing law 26 years ago, the drunk driver was the most dangerous on the road. Now, it’s the distracted driver. All too often the serious injury clients we represent have had their lives changed forever because of another driver’s cell phone use. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, give us a call. If the other driver was on the phone or texting, we’ll find out – and that driver will be held responsible. It’s our community. Let’s all work to make it safer.”

Edelman & Thompson has 5 locations in the Kansas City, Missouri & Kansas City, Kansas.
