Personal Injury cases are compensation for a bodily injury you suffered because of someone else’s negligence. Physical injuries to your body can arise from being involved in an automobile accident, a railroad accident, airline or other common carrier accident, a construction or other workplace accident, being injured because of a dangerous or otherwise unsafe product and other injury-causing situations.
Personal injuries can be both physical and they can be psychological. Psychological injuries are often associated with life-threatening and/or disfiguring physical injuries, or result from witnessing trauma in others, or following personal escape from serious injury following a traumatic event. Kansas law generally requires a physical injury to also be able to seek compensation for a psychological injury.
Our mission at the Law Office of Riedmiller, Andersen & Scott, LLC is to help you proceed in these cases so you collect the best possible award. If you are involved in an auto collision because of the fault of another person, you have certain basic legal rights. You have every reason to expect things to be made right. You should not feel embarrassed or ashamed to expect such an outcome.
Under the law, an injured individual has a right to be made whole to the fullest extent possible. As attorneys, it always amazes us how many “traps” people injured in an auto accident fall into — traps designed to hurt their chances of receiving a fair accident settlement.
We hope to educate the public and help them steer clear of those traps and show them how to avoid making mistakes that will hurt their chances of receiving fair compensation for the pain, suffering and inconvenience they’ve had to endure.
