Kansas Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Attorney in Wichita

In many cases of personal injury, the law permits victims and families to seek compensation from at-fault parties. This can include car accidents, dangerous conditions on commercial or residential property and medical malpractice. In most cases, this results in a claim against a negligent party's insurance carrier.

At Riedmiller, Andersen and Scott LLC, our veteran Wichita personal injury lawyers believe victims and families deserve immediate access to experienced legal help without concerns over upfront costs or other barriers that would otherwise put them at a disadvantage when dealing with large insurance corporations and their attorneys. That’s why we offer confidential consultations and accept clients on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid only when we are successful in winning compensation for you and your family.

Personal injury attorneys in Wichita Kansas

To succeed in a personal injury lawsuit under Kansas law, a victim must prove four elements:

  • That the at-fault party owed a duty of care.
  • That the at-fault party breached that duty.
  • That the failure resulted in a compensable injury.
  • And that monetary damages resulted.

However, that does not make it a straight-forward process. From the moment you report a claim to an insurance carrier, your case will be assigned to a team of insurance adjusters, investigators, attorneys and medical experts who are focused on limiting the cost of your claim and your ability to collect all of the damages to which you are entitled. Additionally, your Wichita personal injury law firm must have the necessary experience and resources to not only prove an at-fault party is to blame, but also to determine all of the damages to which you are entitled.

Kansas Personal Injury Lawsuit

Under Kansas law, victims are entitled to collect both economic and noneconomic damages.

  • Economic damages: These are actual expenses incurred as a result of injury, and commonly include medical bills, lost wages, property damage and the cost of care and rehabilitation.
  • Non-economic damages: These damages include things like pain and suffering, emotional distress and other costs that your Wichita personal injury lawyer must carefully calculate.

In many cases, the total economic cost of injury may not be known at the time of settlement or trial. This is particularly true when serious injury may result in long-term medical complications and/or disability. Having a law firm experienced in determining these costs can have a major impact on your ability to collect all of the damages to which you are entitled under the law.

Common types of personal injury lawsuits include:

Most cases will settle without the need to go to trial, provided your Wichita personal injury law firm builds a solid case for negligence and damages. Put simply, if you have a strong case, and a law firm known for taking cases to trial, the at-fault insurance carrier would rather settle than expose itself to the expense, publicity and uncertainty of a trial. However, it is up to victims and families to seek experienced legal help as early as possible when an injury accident occurs.
