Throughout our century’s worth of total personal injury case experience, we have built not only our impressive knowledge of Kansas injury law, but also our reputation as a no-nonsense law firm. Insurance companies from all corners know we carefully build our cases for maximum legal validity, support our clients’ claims with strong evidence and solid arguments, and never accept anything other than a fair and maximized recovery amount on their behalves. It is our attention to detail and fighting spirit that have enabled us to reach favorable case resolutions for our clients in all manners of injury claims, time and again. When you want insight, compassion, and unmatched legal ability, look no further than our personal injury lawyers in Topeka.
Don’t Wait to File a Claim
According to the Kansas Statutes section, 60-513 the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in Kansas is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to recover compensation. Kansas does have some exceptions where the statute of limitations can be extended. An attorney from our firm can let you know if you qualify for an extension to the statute of limitations.
Damages Available in a Personal Injury Case
There are three types of damages available for injury victims to pursue in a personal injury case, economic, non-economic and punitive damages. The first two damages can be grouped together as “compensatory damages.” Compensatory damages are responsible for compensating the injured party for as many losses as possible. Among other things, these losses include:
Past and future medical expenses
Past or future lost wages
Pain and suffering
The last type of damages, punitive damages, differ from compensatory damages in that their main purpose is to act as a punishment against the negligent party instead of compensating the injured party for a specific loss.
Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?
Unlike insurance companies, Ralston, Pope & Diehl, LLC are true advocates on your side, fighting for your best interest every step of the way. Insurance companies on the other hand, are looking out for their company’s profit, not what you need to recover well after an accident. On top of that, many people find that their injuries become more severe days or weeks after they sustain them. If you accept an insurance settlement before you know how serious your injuries are, you may find your settlement amount no longer covers all your medical expenses. An attorney from our firm can fight to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve so you can focus on recovering.
