Calculating Damages In A Car Accident Claim

Being injured in an auto accident can be an overwhelming experience. People often suffer the impact not only physically but there are monetary and emotional consequences as well. Under the law, people have the right to recover for what is called compensable damages. It is common knowledge that insurance companies use a formula to determine the amount of compensation paid in an injury claim.  The formula doesn’t actually determine the exact amount of compensation someone should receive, however it is a tool that insurance adjusters use to begin the process of valuing the worth of a claim. The final determination… Read More

Detailed Injury Descriptions

Most of the time when I review my clients’ medical records I notice that the doctors will often be extremely short in their description of the patients’ injuries. Most doctors do this to save time and money, but ultimately this may destroy your case. The history and descriptions you give your doctor about your medical condition must be detailed, truthful and complete. I actually have an eight-question worksheet that I have most of my clients use to assist them in telling the doctor what the doctor needs to know about their history and description of their injuries. If you would… Read More

Unexpected Calls You Get After An Auto Accident

I had a phone call the other day from a client who had just been in an accident 1 week ago and suffered whiplash type injuries. She was getting a little better but she told me that she was at the doctor’s office to get some treatment when she decided to call me because it was kind of strange for her to be at this doctor’s office in the first place. She explained to me that she was resting at home on her couch when she got a call from somebody who said that they had arranged an initial free… Read More

New Workers Compensation Laws are Coming

The Kansas Legislature is writing new workers compensation laws due to the new order in politics here in Kansas.  The conservative majority has decided to pass new workers compensation laws that will decrease Kansas workers compensation benefits and make work comp insurance coverage some of the most profitable in the country.  These changes in the law include eliminating many claims for carpal tunnel syndrome and limiting medical care for injuries to stop as soon as the employee is told by the company doctor that they are done.  Injured employees will also have new time limitations to their case that will… Read More

New Workers Comp Bill in the Kansas Senate

There have been some amendments to the House Bill 2134 that dealt with Kansas Workers Compensation Laws. The newest amendments to this bill occurred before it was shipped off to the Kansas Senate where it is awaiting action. Two changes were made to the bill that would prevent illegal aliens from collecting a work disability in Kansas and that would require injured workers pay for the cost of translators in hearings and proceedings under Kansas workers compensation laws. At first blush, it makes some sense that illegal aliens shouldn’t be able to collect workers compensation benefits for losing their job… Read More

Thumb Tied: Man Pressured to Return to Work After Being Hung By Thumbs

It was a pleasant day in Wichita. The sun was out. A cool breeze ambled from the north and Guy Lambertson was on the job. Guy was one of the best landscapers in town. People knew him. They respected him. Guy’s reputation for quality was surpassed only by his reputation for safety. Which is why this story was so heartbreaking. Landscapers use a pulley system to lower branches from trees. A rope is tied around the branch, fed through a pulley, and the limb is lowered to the ground safely. Guy knew that. He’d used the system for years. But… Read More
