When it comes to influencing laws in the State of Kansas, Jerry R. Palmer knows a thing or two. As the founder of Palmer Law Group, he helped introduce changes to Kansas tort laws with written, persuasive arguments. For example, when the Kansas Legislature was debating the enactment of the Kansas Tort Claims Act, Mr. Palmer advocated for the liability protection of government workers. Thanks to his efforts, the Kansas Legislature adopted his language into the Act. This just goes to show that with dedication and perseverance, attorneys like Jerry Palmer can make a real difference in their communities.
Any injury attorney can file a lawsuit, but not any attorney can put a case on trial and win it. At the Palmer Law Group, we understand that the decision to take on a complex spinal cord injury case is not one to be made lightly. We also know that the stakes can be high and that the outcome of a case can have a profound impact on our clients’ lives.

We are also well aware that not every case will settle and that some cases will require a trial with a judge and jury to reach a just resolution. We are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to protect our client’s interests, including taking a case to trial.

Our spine injury lawyers love answering your questions. No two spinal injury cases are exactly alike, so it is important to discuss your situation with an attorney from the Palmer Law Group who can advise and counsel you on what to expect for your specific injuries.
In general, the more serious the injury, the longer it will take to reach a settlement. However, several other factors can affect the timeline, including the insurance company’s willingness to negotiate and the strength of the evidence.
Many factors will come into play that will affect the outcome and the value of a spinal injury case. For example, the severity of your injuries, the amount of medical bills, and the effect that your spinal injury has on your life are all important factors that will be taken into consideration.
Some of the most common types of spinal injury damages include both past and future medical expenses, lost wages and wage-earning capacity, pain and suffering, scarring and disfigurement, physical impairment, and mental anguish. Under Kansas law, a court may decide to award punitive damages in addition to some of the compensatory damages listed above.
When a loved one dies from a spine injury, additional wrongful death damages may be available. For example:
The statute of limitations to file a lawsuit for a spine injury in Kansas is two years from the date of the injury or two years from when a person discovers they have an injured spine. In any event, a lawsuit for a latent discovery of a spine injury needs to be filed within 10 years from the original date of the accident.
Spine injuries can range from mild to severe. The following are some common examples of spinal injuries:
Spinal injuries often occur as a result of car accidents, falls, or sports-related injuries. They can cause a great deal of pain and may require long-term medical treatment. In some cases, spinal cord injuries can lead to permanent disability.
An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to review all of the facts of your case and give you a better idea of what you may be able to expect. If you have sustained a spine injury in an accident, it is important to seek out experienced legal representation as soon as possible.
It is incredibly distressing to suffer a spine injury, especially when it was caused by someone else’s negligence. We understand how difficult it can be. Not only is the physical pain often debilitating, but the financial strain can be crushing. Medical bills, missed work, and other expenses can quickly add up, leaving you feeling hopeless and alone. Unfortunately, insurance companies add insult to injury by stringing you along and giving you false hopes. Insurance companies do not look out for your best interests – we do.
You need help, and you need it now.
We are available 24/7, 365 days a year to guide you through this difficult time. We never forget that we are counselors as well as attorneys. Call (785) 233-1836 and let us help you take the next step in your journey to recovery.
