Legal Answers
Q. I live in Missouri and was rear ended on my motorcycle at a red light in Kansas.
A: The other driver's insurance will be liable for your medical expenses, lost wages and pain/suffering damages - including future costs in those categories. It is very advisable that you talk to experienced legal counsel as soon as possible so that you do not short-change any recovery you may be entitled to receive. Kansas has a two year statute of limitations, so be aware of that also. As far as property damage, you may be able to get reimbursed on rental vehicle expenses incurred prior to getting into another vehicle. Sounds like you may have already recovered for the actual value of the motorcycle. I hope that the insurance company gave you a halfway reasonable value - the attorney can be of some help in that regard also if not. ... Read More
Q. what happens if someone is riding a motor cycle on the highway and is struck by a power line pole electricuted, boots bl
A: So long as the statute of limitations has not run on the claim (usually 2 years in Kansas and 5 years in MO), you should still be able to pursue and conclude the claim. A number of possible issues involved in a prior attorneys involvement. That should all be resolvable as part of resolving the underlying claim. You should be talking to a personal injury attorney right away about getting your claim resolved.
Q. When would the statute of limitations begin the date the doctor committed the first act of malpractice
A: As a general rule, the two year statute of limitations starts to run from the first day that the injured person could have reasonably discovered that the negligence occurred. If the doctor covered up his negligence, then there is likely a strong argument that the two years does not start to run until the negligence could be discovered.
