Personal injuries can occur as a result of many different incidents, including:
- car accidents
- work injuries, such as slip-and-fall accidents
- accidents involving large trucks, such as semis
No matter if your injuries are severe or mild, their effects on your life can start immediately and last a long time. From losing income by missing work to permanent loss of mobility, the impact of a personal injury has the potential to be physically and financially devastating.
Independent legal resource enjuris.com says that in the state of Kansas, you have two years after an incident occurs to file a personal injury claim. But that process can be hindered when bills start flooding in soon after receiving treatment for personal injury, adding to an already overwhelming situation.
Mike Wyatt, personal injury attorney at Mann, Wyatt & Tanksley Injury Attorneys, warns that while you expect insurance companies to help with the costs, it’s important to remember “insurance companies who attempt to settle cases often try to do it as quickly and inexpensively as they can.”
According to Wyatt, you only get one chance to settle your personal injury case. Once a case is settled, it can’t be settled again, so it’s worth it to hire a personal injury attorney to help you maximize the value of your case.
“Our job as personal injury lawyers is to consider all the potential expenses that you have now and the expenses you might have in the future to maximize recovery from the insurance company,” Wyatt said.
