When A Car Accident Wasn’t Your Fault
Our experienced Wichita attorneys can fight for your rights
You were hurt in a car accident caused by a negligent driver. Who pays for the damages (legal term for accident-related expenses) you suffered? If the accident wasn’t your fault, you shouldn’t have to pay. The other driver’s insurance company should provide financial compensation for your losses. Unfortunately, it’s often much more complicated than that.
Insurance companies will likely try to pay you as little as possible after an accident. One of the ways they’ll try to do that is to say you were at least partially at fault for causing your crash. At Warner Law Offices, our experienced lawyers can help you fight to hold negligent drivers accountable and help you recover the compensation you deserve for you car accident.
We don’t let insurance companies take advantage
Kansas uses a modified comparative negligence system when determining financial compensation after a car accident. In this system, you can still recover compensation if you were partially at fault – but only if your level of fault was 49% or less.
If you are found partially at fault, your compensation will be reduced by the same percentage. For example, you are awarded $100,000 after a car accident but are found to be 10% at fault. This means your award would be reduced by 10%, and you could recover $90,000.
Insurance companies know how to use this system to their advantage and will do everything they can to increase your level of fault. That’s because the more at fault they can claim you were, the less they will have to pay you. They have investigators and lawyers working for their best interests who try to find ways to blame you for the accident.
Our experienced attorneys have been fighting for the injured in Wichita for decades. We know how the legal system works. We know how the insurance companies operate and how to fight back. Our lawyers build strong cases that insurance companies have to take seriously.
Decades of getting results for the injured
After a car accident, getting the facts is important when determining fault. That’s why our legal team investigates your crash to gather evidence. We carefully review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
The other driver may have been speeding, operating recklessly, talking on the phone or texting just before the crash. Our legal team knows where to look for evidence that proves your injuries were the result of an accident caused by the other driver’s negligence.
Then we fight for the financial compensation you deserve, either through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict. We don’t rest until we reach a resolution of your case that meets your needs. This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses related to your injuries, any lost wages and other damages such as pain and suffering.
