Kansas law requires drivers to carry a minimum of $25,000 per person/$50,000 bodily injury coverage. This coverage is meant to compensate injury victims in the event a driver causes a collision. However, this coverage is often nowhere near sufficient enough to compensate those who are seriously injured. In fact, the limits can quickly be exhausted just by emergency room care.
These are complex cases always best handled by an experienced car accident law firm in Wichita. Each cases is unique, but common avenues of recovery in such cases include:
In all cases, early consultation with an experienced Wichita car accident lawyer is the best thing you can do to protect your rights. Early investigation is often the best way to identify at-fault parties and determine all of the factors of causation in a collision.
In cases where victims must pursue a claim against their own insurance carrier, they should not expect to be treated as a valued customer. These claims are no different to an insurance carrier than other claims by third-party victims. Your insurance company and its adjusters, investigators and lawyers, will be focused on limiting the cost of your claim and your ability to collect damages.
In addition to proving causation and identifying all liable parties, your chosen Wichita car accident lawyer must also determine the total value of your claim, including economic damages like medical expenses and lost wages, and non-economic damages like pain and suffering. This can be a complex process, particularly when serious injury results in the likelihood of a lengthy recovery, disability and/or the probability of future medical complications.
