You aren’t sure what to do. For a variety of reasons, you are thinking about putting off a call to a Kansas City slip and fall lawyer. You might think that you are too busy right now, that you aren’t sure of the extent of your injuries, or that you don’t want to get the person (or business) responsible for your injuries into trouble. However, when you decide to put off a call to a Kansas City personal injury attorney, you are making a decision and it is a decision that could have significant and permanent ramifications. Thus, it is important to understand what is at stake before deciding not to call a lawyer.
The Potential Consequences of a Delay
Generally, there are two consequences of a delay that could significantly limit or prevent your recovery. Those consequences include:
- Making Your Case Harder to Prove. Evidence from the scene of the accident may become harder to gather and the elements of a slip and fall case may be harder to prove if you wait to contact a lawyer.
- Failing to File a Case Before the Statute of Limitations Expires. Both Kansas and Missouri have personal injury statutes of limitations that limit how long you have to file a case. After the statute of limitations expires, you may no longer be able to recover damages.
