There are legally defined time periods when, if you fail to take action, you can be legally barred from ever making a recovery. In Kansas and Oklahoma, you’ll have two years from the date of the accident to settle your claim or file a lawsuit, but only 60 days by certified mail that includes authorization to medical records and wage loss to file a claim.
No one enjoys paperwork. File your claim with a lawyer
and then let us at the Law Center for Car Accident Injuries

Therefore, the fourth biggest mistake you can make after being involved in a car accident injury, to fail to act promptly. If you fail to give timely notice and get your claim settled within that two year period, insurance companies will ‘red flag’ your claim.
By being ‘red flagged’ the insurance company has just created taboo on your account where every time afterward, when you file a claim they will be suspicious of insurance fraud.
