Kansas, even though it is beautiful and rural, has its fair share of negligence cases, personal injuries and car accidents. Perhaps it was you who was hurt in a life-changing way, or maybe it was a friend or family member who needs help right now.
Whatever happened, if you need guidance for your personal injury case, Enjuris has the answers.
This is where you’ll find Kansas's laws. The website has details about how long you have to bring a case, damage caps on personal injury cases, and other important information that you will need.
In Kansas, you have two years to bring a personal injury claim and a property damage claim. That doesn't mean the whole personal injury lawsuit has to be completed in that time frame; it just needs to be filed with the court.
The initial meeting with a personal injury attorney is normally free of charge. (Note that other legal specialties, such as criminal defense law or intellectual property law, are different.) After that, lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that they will receive a third of the eventual reward or settlement, plus whatever office expenses they incurred.
If your case ends up going to trial, the percentage could rise to 40% of the eventual reward or judgment. These numbers aren't set by law, so don't be surprised if your lawyer suggests something else.
There are lots of issues you can solve without the help of a lawyer, surprisingly enough. If you don't know where to start, a law librarian can help you. They are usually legally trained, and they can help you both with texts or online research engines like LexisNexis or Westlaw.
