August 2017- Legal Snapshot

Hello from The Law Office of David S. Adams! Read our legal snapshot for August below.


Bankruptcy -

11 USC §523(a)(2)(C) creates a presumption against discharge of any debt of more than $500 incurred for luxury goods within 90 days of a bankruptcy filing. Cash advances of more than $750 within 70 days of filing are also presumed to be nondischargable.


Personal Injury -

A trailer hitch on a vehicle has been shown to significantly increase the risk of neck and back injury in a rear-end crash.  A bumper absorbs some of an impact before pushing a car forward, but a trailer hitch is usually tied into the frame and not only results in an immediate move forward but often a magnified move.  It is like the difference between having an empty Coke can or a frozen Coke can between you and an impact.


We provide legal consultation to those who need a personal injury attorney, car accident attorney, or bankruptcy attorney in Overland Park, Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, KS and the Kansas City metro.


Bankruptcy and personal injury case referrals are always appreciated.
