Whiplash Lawyers in Wichita, Kansas
We don’t settle for less than you deserve
Whiplash is a common injury among people that have been hurt in a car accident. It can have a significant impact on your life and make it difficult to work and take part in your usual activities. But insurance companies often don’t take this injury seriously. They may try to prevent you from recovering the financial compensation you deserve.
At Warner Law Offices, our experienced Wichita lawyers can help you fight back against the insurance companies. We are very familiar with the tactics they often use to try to limit compensation for car accident claims. Our attorneys know how to build strong cases that the insurance companies have to take seriously.
During a car accident, the force of the crash can cause your head to whip forward and backward with great force – much like the cracking of a whip. This stretches the muscles, ligaments and tendons in your neck beyond their usual range of motion and results in injuries often referred to as whiplash.
Our law firm can guide you through the legal process
Symptoms of whiplash may not be felt for a day or more. They often include pain and stiffness in the neck, and possibly the back and shoulders. Treatment for whiplash typically involves rest and medication. You may also need to wear a neck brace or collar to keep your neck immobilized. Recovery can take weeks or longer.
In the meantime, the medical expenses for treatment can add up quickly. You may also have to take time off from work, resulting in a loss of income. If you were hurt in an accident caused by a negligent driver, you should not have to pay for the damages you suffered. But recovering compensation can be complicated.
The driver who caused your Wichita car accident may have been texting, speeding or falling asleep at the wheel. The problem is that negligent drivers often deny doing anything wrong and won’t accept responsibility for causing the accident.
Then there are the insurance companies. They will often question the seriousness of your injuries in an attempt to pay you as little as possible. They may even blame you for causing the accident. Sometimes, they’ll make you a settlement offer that falls far short of covering the damages you suffered in the accident.
