Injured In a Car Accident, What Should I Do? | Wichita Personal Injury Lawyers
Have you been in a serious Wichita, Kansas, car accident? As a result, you could have whiplash, neck injuries, back injuries, orthopedic/joint injuries, concussion/head/brain trauma, spinal cord injuries, knee damage, or chronic fatigue symptoms. Additionally, many drivers suffer injuries that may not manifest themselves until days or weeks after the accident.
Jesse Tanksley, car accident injury attorney at Mann, Wyatt & Rice Injury Attorneys in Wichita, recommends seeking medical care as soon as possible. Kansas requires that all drivers with the exception of motorcycle drivers carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance, which should ensure you are able to see a health care provider right away.
After or in conjunction with seeking medical care, it is also best to contact a reputable car accident injury attorney like Tanksley. The status or outcome of your medical care will determine whether or not a car accident injury case should be pursued.
“You need a medical diagnosis before you can determine the best course of legal action,” said Tanksley. “Medical injuries determine the potential value of a case and whether you should settle the case or pursue it further.”
