Dugan and Giroux Law Inc. is one of the top personal injury firms in Kansas. We primarily handle personal injury litigation on behalf of the injured party. These cases typically involve situations where an individual suffers an injury that requires medical treatment and/or results in economic loss due to a negligent act. The most common types of personal injury claims involve auto accidents or premises liability cases.
How Our Lawyers Can Help
Our goal is to ensure our clients receive the appropriate medical care, long-term treatment, and compensation they deserve. We consistently win cases involving car wrecks, commercial vehicle accidents, wrongful death, drunk driving, workplace accidents, slip and fall accidents, and more.
Personal injury claims are often not filed by individuals due to the complex nature of insurance companies, medical documents, police reports, and business contracts. We are here to help you navigate these complicated issues. If you believe someone’s negligence has lead to a personal injury, we can help you determine if legal action is feasible, and what the possible outcomes might be.
If you need a personal injury lawyer in Wichita, KS or the surrounding region, please get in touch for a consultation. We’re here to help.
Premises Liability Lawyers
Premises liability is when an injury is caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. This could include uneven pavement, wet floors, icy walkways, insufficient lighting, concealed holes, improperly secured equipment, dog bites, and many other situations.
Consulting an attorney to help with these types of injuries can make the difference between receiving no compensation, and receiving fair payment to cover your medical needs and economic losses. We have extensive experience and a history of success with premise liability cases.
If you’ve suffered an injury at a business or store, or at someone’s home or apartment, an experienced lawyer will be able to communicate with the business lawyers and insurance companies, who are often only interested in a positive outcome for the business. We are here to ensure your needs are met, and to deliver the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
Wrongful Death Claims in Kansas
“Wrongful death” exists when a person dies due to the legal fault of another person and the surviving members of the victim’s family sue. The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to compensate the survivors, not the victim. The family members who file a wrongful death claim must prove that they have been directly impacted by the passing of their loved ones. This could be emotionally and/or financially.
Our Wichita attorneys provide compassionate service for wrongful death cases. If you have a loved one who has died due to the negligence of another party, we have the experience to ensure your family is treated fairly, and that justice is served in a timely and appropriate manner. Compensation cannot heal emotional loss, but reducing the stress and burden of funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of salary, and other damages can help restore some normalcy to your life.
If you believe a family member has suffered a wrongful death, please contact our Wichita attorneys as soon as you are able to. Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed promptly.
Wichita Vehicle Accident Attorneys
Car, motorcycle, truck, and pedestrian accidents are one of the most common types of personal injury cases we provide service for. Our lawyers can develop a legal strategy for your unique situation. You may be entitled to compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering. Vehicle accidents can have a long-term impact on your health and livelihood, so it is important to work with a professional to ensure you are treated fairly and justly.
If you get into a vehicle accident, remain calm. Never leave the scene. Check on all drivers and passengers and call the police. You will want to exchange information from all drivers involved, such as, names, numbers, addresses, drivers license numbers, license plate numbers, and basic insurance information. If there were witnesses, ask what they saw and get their names and numbers. Inform your insurance company about the accident. Take pictures of the damage done on your vehicle and other vehicles involved.
