You do need to promptly notify your insurance company that you were involved in an accident. Every insurance carrier has a different policy, but typically without prompt notification, they may deny your claim. However, you don't need to speak with an insurance company representing another driver at all. Always be skeptical of any inquiries made by an insurance company. Never forget, like a criminal case, anything you say may be used against you later.
What you need to do is contact an experienced attorney us immediately, before you talk to the insurance company. If you retain our firm to represent you, we'll reach out to the insurance and let them know that you have hired an attorney. From that point forward, they can direct all of their inquiries to us, not to you. Call today 913.602.7288 or complete this FORM.
If you have been involved in a car accident, in Overland Park, Kansas, or anywhere in the state of Kansas, you are likely wondering how long it will take to resolve your claim. The answer is, it depends on the facts of your unique case. Typically, a car accident claim will settle between three and nine months from the date of the accident and the completion of your medical care. Should your case go to trial, it may take your case one or two years to resolve. In some instances, a case may take much longer than another (ex. where multiple defendants involved).
You should be careful when considering a settlement offer from the insurance company, immediately following your accident. The insurance company will take advantage of your circumstance and desire to settle quickly and, for that reason, offer you less than you would otherwise be entitled to. Our office has settled claims that increased 3 to 15 times when we began representing our clients. You have more questions and we have the answers. Call us today, Attorney T. Morton, at 913-602-7288 or complete this FORM for your free consultation.

If you are injured in a car wreck, in Kansas, you are somewhat covered. That is because all Kansas car insurance policies must have no-fault benefits, called personal injury protection (PIP); therefore, regardless of whether the other driver has insurance you first file the claim with your personal insurance. Uninsured and underinsured motorist protection will also cover you if the other driver has some insurance, but not enough to pay for the full cost of your injuries. Similarly, if you are involved in an accident, with a hit-and-run driver, and that driver is never found, you can claim your uninsured motorist benefits (a driver who cannot be found is considered uninsured by default). While this may seem simple, making sure your claim is quickly resolved, your medical bills are paid and your all of your damages are covered can quickly become complex.
