If you have experienced a personal injury as a result of negligence on the part of an individual or business, you may be wondering what your rights are for medical expenses, trauma and loss of wages. Brad Pistotnik Law is one of the Wichita personal injury lawyers serving Kansas to help residents from Garden City to Topeka reclaim their lives after an accident.
Identifying Who is At Fault
Your Wichita personal injury lawyers will work on your behalf to determine who was at fault for the injuries sustained. Brad Pistotnik Law will gather facts about your case, investigate your claims and build a strong case to prove that the injuries suffered were either caused by negligence on the part of another individual or that they were the result of a malicious intentional attack directed at the victim. Proving which party is responsible for the injuries is the first step to fighting for a fair settlement in Kansas.
Valuing Your Injuries
Once fault for an injury has been properly assigned, your team of Wichita personal injury lawyers will also help you determine what the value of your case is in a court of law. The value of your case will include both general and special compensations. For instance, a settlement may be reached for the general pain and suffering caused by the injury, but further negotiations will be needed to reach an agreement about the value of lost wages during your recovery time, harm caused to personal relationships, lasting mental trauma and other considerations. In the most extreme cases of wrongful death, consideration will also be needed for burial costs and other related expenses.
Collecting Your Awards
After a case has been settled, you are entitled to receive money from the defendant within a reasonable amount of time. If the defendant is unable to pay the entire sum, or if they refuse to pay, one of our Wichita personal injury lawyers can help you collect your money or take necessary steps to garnish wages, place liens on property or otherwise track down your payments. Brad Pistotnik Law has successfully helped their clients collect on personal injury cases for years, and will fight for your rights if a defendant is refusing to comply with a settlement agreement.
Wichita personal injury lawyers are instrumental in ensuring that your case is properly investigated, evaluated and settled. In addition, Brad Pistotnik Law wants you to be confident that the money awarded from your settlement will arrive in a timely manner so you can get back to work and move on with your life.
