Filing a Personal Injury Claim

The Filing of a Personal Injury Claim in Wichita

Accidents, injuries, bodily harm and death are all unfortunate but unavoidable parts of our lives. Things happen and often are completely unforeseen. However in many cases these misfortunes were not entirely random but had their roots in the negligent or wrongful actions of another person or entity. Failing to act as expected, acting recklessly or irresponsibly and not maintaining an "standard of care" owed to another are often responsible for causing harm, losses, injuries or death to another. When this happens we have the backing of the law in seeking compensation for associated losses as well as for overall pain and suffering.

General Steps in Filing a Personal Injury Claim

Once injured, the first step after appropriate medical attention is sought will be to have the case reviewed by an experienced Wichita personal injury lawyer. Surprisingly this step is often overlooked or delayed. Surrounded by confusion and buried in stress it is often difficult to take that first step. It is very common to individuals to simply want to put the painful incident behind them. For this reason many legitimate claims go without compensation. At the very least we urge you to meet with Rick Hodge, Attorney at Law for a free initial consultation. We can provide answers and address many concerns that you may have as well as help you to decide whether or not you wish to pursue a claim.

Once a lawyer has been engaged then a large part of the work will fall upon the legal team's shoulders. A personal injury suit involves an enormous amount of paperwork and the gathering of information from reports, witnesses and various experts. During this time your lawyer may also engage in pre-trial negotiations and often arrange for an out of court settlement. If an adequate amount cannot be agreed upon then a courtroom trial will be scheduled and a battle fought for your compensation.

If you have been injured by the negligence or wrongdoing of another then you have the right to seek compensation. To get started your first step is to contact a Wichita Personal Injury Attorney for a consultation to review and discuss your claim.
