Attacker Was An Employee
We got a good question recently from someone. Their question was if they are injured by an employee, are they able to pursue a negligent security claim against the employer? The answer is yes. The employer has a responsibility to provide employees that can perform the job properly and who will not injure other people. If the injury is a result of the employer’s failure to either hire the right people, or train their employees, or supervise their employees, then you can absolutely pursue a negligent security case against the employer.
There are a lot of factual details that go into determining those claims and so it will be helpful to get an attorney involved right away. If you have questions about your negligent security case, just give us a call. We’d be happy to talk through that with you.
Negligent Security Case Value
We spoke with someone recently who wanted to know how to go about determining the value of a negligent security case in Kansas. There are a couple of different types of damages in Kansas that will help determine the value of your case. One is economic damages. Those are things like medical bills, prescription costs, lost wages, and also includes those expenses in the past as well as anything that you might need in the future.
Another type of damage is what’s called non-economic damages. Those are things like pain, suffering, the worry over your safety, the worry over whether you will get your life back, and whether you will recover from these injuries, and the impact this has had on every aspect of your life. Once we know more information about your economic damages as well as your non-economic damages and the ways that this has impacted your life, we will be able to give you a better idea of the value of your negligent security case. If you have any questions about your negligent security case, just give us a call.
Negligent Security Case Going to Trial
One question we get a lot is, will my negligent security case have to go to trial in Kansas? Most people don’t want to have to go to trial if they don’t have to. It is possible. There are cases that we can get settled quickly, but the most important thing is that you focus on getting the treatment that you need and recovering from your injury injuries. While you’re doing that, we’ll be working on your case, investigating your case, gathering all the evidence so when you’re done with treatment, when the doctor tells you that you’re done with the treatment, we will then present a demand to the insurance carrier and see if we can settle the case.
If the insurance carrier is willing to pay a fair and reasonable amount for your damages, then we may be able to get the case settled pretty quickly, but if they’re not, then we may need to file suit and take the case to a jury trial. Going through the court system and a jury trial will take additional time, but regardless of how much time it takes, our goal is to make sure that we get you the best possible recovery. We will work to make sure that happens. If you have any questions about your negligent security case, just give us a call.
Negligent Security Case Timeline
We are often asked how long it will take to resolve a negligent security case in Kansas. That is a very difficult question to answer, if not impossible. Essentially, you are going to need to focus on getting treatment for the injuries caused by the negligent security, healing from your injuries, and getting your life back. While you are doing that, we’re going to be working on your case. We are going to be investigating all the details, gathering all the evidence, and having the case ready so that when your doctor says that you’re done with treatment, we can then send the information and present the demand to the insurance carrier and see if we can settle your negligent security case.
