Frequently Asked Questions

Wichita Personal Injury Attorney

Below are some frequently asked questions about personal injury law. The answers are for general information and are not legal advice.  If you have further questions, contact a Wichita personal injury lawyer.

What kind of damages can you get when you are injured in a car accident?

You could get your medical expenses, ambulance expenses and hospital bills paid for.  You are also entitled to be compensated for your property losses such as damage to your car.  You also may recover your loss of income and, in case of permanent injury, your lost earning capacity.  You could also get an award for pain and suffering.  Your case should be evaluated at once to determine what damages to include in your claim.

When you are injured in the workplace, may you make a personal injury claim against your employer for negligence? 

No.  You are limited to a claim under the Workers' Compensation law.  Under that law you may get benefits without regard to fault for your medical expenses and living expenses.  If you are permanently injured, you may seek a lump sum award.  Lawsuits for negligence in the workplace would have to be against parties other than your employer such as a manufacturer of defective equipment or other company also working in the worksite.  The only basis for a personal injury action against the employer would be for intentional misconduct such as intentionally removing safety guards from a machine to speed up production.

In a dog bite case, what if it is the dog's first bite?

In most states the answer is no, but in Kansas the answer is yes.  To maintain an action for dog bite injuries, it is necessary to show that the dog had bitten someone before and that the dog owner knew of it.  Then the dog owner can be considered negligent for failing to prevent the second bite.
