1. What type of personal injury cases do you take?

We welcome all types of personal injury cases, including those that involve auto accidents, defective products, serious injuries, medical malpractice, and more. To see if we are able to take your case, feel free to call us for a free consultation.

2. How do insurance companies typically approach injury claims?

After being injured in an accident, you will deal with the at-fault party's insurance company. An insurance adjustor will be assigned to your case and you will need to negotiate with the adjustor to settle the claim. The adjustor will typically calculate what the company is willing to pay out, and make an offer that is substantially lower than that offer (without telling you this).

It is important for victims to understand that Insurance adjustors are looking out for their company's best interests, not the victim's. Their job is to settle a claim for as little money as possible, without you filing a lawsuit. Always consult an attorney before accepting any offer from an insurance company.

3. What does personal injury compensation cover?

Victims are usually able to recover compensation for medical treatment, lost wages for missing work, physical therapy or rehabilitation expenses, and pain and suffering. In some cases, you may even be able to collect punitive damages.

4. What is my claim worth?

Every case is different, so we are not able to tell you this without going over your claim. If you are interested in finding out what your claim is worth, feel free to call out attorneys.

5. How is a claim calculated?

A claim is calculated by looking at actual and projected costs for medical expenses, property damage, lost earnings, and other non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. Calculating a claim properly requires extensive resources, such as consulting with financial experts, medical specialists, and other professionals.

6. How much do you charge clients?

We do not charge clients anything until after we win a case. If we lose a case, then you owe us nothing. There are no upfront payments and no out-of-pocket costs. This makes it possible for anyone to secure our services, regardless of your financial situation. You have absolutely nothing to lose.

7. Why is it a good idea to hire an attorney?

Insurance companies are hardly ever on the side of the victims. In fact, they are looking out for their own bottom lines, not for you. Having a qualified Wichita personal injury attorney on your side can help even the playing field. We understand the laws and what insurance companies can and can't do. We know the usual tactics of insurance adjustors and what they do to deny or minimize a claim. We can protect you every step of the way and work to maximize what you are entitled to receive.
