Wichita Car Wreck Lawyers

How can Wichita car wreck lawyers help my claim?

Insurance companies often try to make even the smallest car wreck claims difficult. An insurance adjuster will work on your behalf, but they also represent the best interests of the insurance company. This conflict requires them to balance your interests and the interests of the insurance company. With one of our Wichita car wreck lawyers representing you, there is someone who is looking after your interests alone. This can help your car wreck claim because adjusters often limit the benefits you are entitled to without your knowledge. We offer a free consult if you have questions about whether representation will add value to your claim.

You may find insurance adjusters continuously calling you, or the opposite, difficult to reach. When you are faced with making legal decisions, it helps to have an adviser who is looking after only your interests, who can answer your questions and provide you with direction.

Every case our Wichita car wreck lawyers handle requires a different level of involvement which may include: interviewing witnesses, taking photographs of all injuries and property damages from the wreck. Some car wreck cases require reconstructing the wreck scene from skilled engineers and accident reconstruction experts. Our track record of successful results includes multi-million dollar jury verdicts and settlements.

What factors matter to determine compensation in a Wichita car wreck claim?

The following are a few of the many factors insurance companies and juries will use to evaluate the amount of money you may receive for a car wreck claim:

  • Were there damages to your car and personal items?
  • Are there any factors that were your fault or did you fail to fasten your seatbelt? [1]
  • If the cause of the accident is unknown or contested, and will it be necessary to hire a car wreck reconstruction expert? [2]
  • Did you incur medical bills because of the car wreck, and do you expect to have future related medical bills?
  • Have you lost wages, benefits, overtime or do you expect future loss of earnings?
  • Are you suffering from a severe injury that would require an expert to determine the extent of your injury?
  • Is your pain and suffering being fairly valued?  Compensation for pain and suffering does not follow a precise formula. It takes years of experience to determine a fair amount, the court or insurance company considers factors including: scarring, residual symptoms and permanent disability.
