When you have been injured in an auto accident as a result of another person’s negligence, Kansas law recognizes your right to be compensated in several different ways.
The law offices of Edward J. Hund will first look at your medical needs to determine whether you were getting the appropriate medical care and the rehabilitation you need. Whether you face hospitalization, surgery, long-term physical therapy, or future medical help, Kansas law provides that you have a right to seek reimbursement for all necessary and appropriate medical expenses, past and future, that you incur as a result of your injuries.
You also may have the right to seek compensation for loss of income and earning capacity, whether you are salaried or self-employed. Kansas law additionally recognizes your right to seek compensation for emotional distress, pain and suffering resulting from your injuries.
Your spouse may be entitled to compensation if your injuries affect your marital relationship, such as companionship and household services.
If you have suffered serious injury, you may also be entitled to compensation for disability, disfigurement, and loss of enjoyment of life.
