        If you have suffered a serious injury after being struck by a vehicle, we are so sorry that you had to go through this and experience this life-changing injury. Our Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys are here to help guide you through every single step of your personal injury case when you pursue justice against the liable party for your accident. Please get in touch with our Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys to set up a free legal consultation.

        Getting the Results You Deserve

        Everything starts with identifying who the liable party is in your case. After you’ve been injured in a pedestrian accident, we look to see who caused it. Perhaps it was the vehicle that struck you, but there are a lot of different aspects to an injury case. You might not know exactly who was at fault until it’s been thoroughly investigated. Our Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys can do a deep investigation on your claim until we determine why and how the accident occurred.

        Once we know who the liable party or parties are, we file our claim to try to get you compensation. Your recovery will be in the form of financial compensation that is fulfilled by the liable party’s insurance company.

        We go through negotiations with the insurance company until they come up with a fair settlement offer for you. Most of the time, they are going to start with a low offer to try to see if they can get you to go away. We know what you are worth, and we don’t back down until we get everything that we can. Sometimes they don’t come back to us with a fair settlement offer at all. That is less common, but we can take the case all the way to trial if we have to. 

        Compensation Awards 

        You can receive compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. Your economic damages are your financial losses like medical bills and lost wages. Your non-economic damages are all of the ways in which your life quality has reduced since the accident. Examples are your pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment in life.

        The only way for us to know for sure that we have covered the full extent of your injuries is to get to the bottom of your medical condition. Once we know what your full maximum medical recovery is going to be, we will know everything that is needed to get you back to where you were before, if that’s even possible.

        In some circumstances, you will not be able to return to the health you enjoyed before you were in this accident. That would mean that you are permanently injured. In that case, your compensation should reflect that.

        Once we understand all of the medical treatment, lost wages, and pain and suffering that you have gone through because of this pedestrian accident, we can come up with a compensation award that is full and fair.

        We do not want to rush this process because it would mean that you end up with less than what you deserve if something were to come up after. For example, if you have complications with your surgery on your knee and need a secondary surgery a few years down the road but we’ve already settled your case, you would miss out on receiving compensation for those damages.

        Be patient with our Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys while they determine what your compensation award should be. You don’t want to end up with a lawyer who is going to rush into a settlement and then miss out on the compensation you deserve because they were too quick to act.

        Comparative Fault in Kansas 

        When we come up with the amount of money that your case is worth, we do need to keep in mind that Kansas follows the laws of comparative fault. This means that if you end up being blamed for a portion of the accident you might get a reduced compensation amount or, in the worst case scenario, end up with a case that gets thrown out.

        The reason this happened is that comparative fault laws will dictate what happens when you are blamed for the accident. If you were blamed for 50% or more of the accident, then you will not be allowed to receive compensation as per the law. If you were blamed for 1 to 49% of the accident, then whatever compensation you are awarded will be reduced.

        If you were blamed for 20% of the accident and you were awarded $100,000, you would end up with an $80,000 compensation award. That reduction by law has to happen based on the percent of fault for which you were found responsible.

        You might wonder how they get you on this. One of the biggest issues that we see is people who come to us looking for help but have already spoken to the liable party’s insurance company about the accident. Unfortunately, if they can get a recorded statement out of you, they can then guide you in the conversation to say something that would allow them to reduce your compensation. Either that, or throw out your case all together.

        They are specially trained to get answers out of you. They may even back you into a corner to get you to say things that will put you at fault for the accident. In order to protect your rights to full compensation, you need to let our Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys handle communication with the insurance company so that you never have to worry about saying the wrong thing.

        Don’t Delay

        As we’ve mentioned, the insurance company wants to reduce the money that they have to spend on you. If they noticed that you didn’t go to the emergency room immediately after your pedestrian accident, they will become suspicious of why. They can either claim that your injuries weren’t as bad as you claim they were, or they could say that your injuries didn’t come from the accident involving their insured. That would allow them to throw out your case altogether. We do not want this to happen to you. That is why we need you to prioritize your well-being in this moment. Get to the doctor as soon as you physically can.

        You also don’t want to delay reaching out to the Kansas pedestrian accident attorneys who could take on your case. There are a lot of things that you don’t know about these types of cases.  Given your inexperience, you can make a lot of mistakes while waiting around to talk to a lawyer. Our lawyers have the knowledge and experience. It is very important for you to have at least a free legal consultation right away.

        Not only are you going to avoid making mistakes in your case, you are also going to end up getting started on your claim, which reduces your risk of missing the statute of limitation in Kansas.

        In Kansas, you are given two years from the date of your accident to file your claim. If you do not do so then, you will be barred from receiving compensation forever. This is your one opportunity to get justice. Delaying will cause issues for you. Even waiting a few months or a year could mean that the witnesses at the scene of your accident either go missing or forget very important details of the case that would’ve helped us win.

        The sooner you reach out to us the better. We will be waiting for your call.
