Few cases are more sensitive than those involving personal injuries. From the injury itself to the financial toll it can take on families to the involved property damage, injury cases mean dealing with real personal harm in the face of someone else’s negligence.
We serve personal injury victims in Overland Park, Kansas utilizing a team approach to help ensure you get the justice you deserve.
What Is a Personal Injury?
Personal injury cases vary widely. At the heart of the matter, it’s a legal dispute that occurs when one person suffers physical or mental harm as a result of an accident or injury caused by another individual or entity. From there, though, things get quite a bit more complicated.
These cases often involve car accidents, bike accidents, and even pedestrian accidents, but that’s certainly not all. Slip and fall claims are quite common, as well. Defective product claims and medical malpractice claims also fit under this broad umbrella, as do wrongful death claims.
Don’t Speak to the Insurance Company – Contact Our Attorneys
In many cases, injured individuals or grieving families are quietly contacted by an insurance company offering a settlement almost immediately after the accident has occurred. It’s important to note that it is in your best interest to contact an attorney and avoid the insurance company’s first settlement offer. It can take some time to determine the extent of the injuries involved in these cases. If you settle early, you may not be able to make a claim against the company if additional injuries are discovered at a later date.
Even if you think you may not file a lawsuit, it’s essential to contact an attorney at the outset of your case to get a sense of how to move forward. We offer a consultation session in the event of personal injury cases and flexible hours to meet with you on your schedule.
If You are Injured Don’t Wait, Time is Limited
While some kinds of cases have almost an unlimited amount of time to reach the courthouse, personal injury cases don’t typically fall under this umbrella. Often, the statute of limitations expires in a matter of months, and if you haven’t sought representation in time, you could be left with the lingering problems the accident caused and without the compensation you deserved.
