Lafayette lawyers who fight for your rights
Because vehicles travel at high speeds on the highway, a car accident can cause very serious injuries. Highway accidents can have a significant impact on the people who get hurt. Insurance companies often dispute these claims. That's because there can be a lot of money at stake. The car accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan know this and fight hard for justice for victims.
Survivors of highway accidents can suffer traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, internal injuries or amputation. Recovery can take months or years. Some may be left with a permanent disability. Medical expenses can quickly become overwhelming, and injuries often leave victims unable to work.
Our firm has been fighting for the injured in Greater Lafayette since 1913. We know the laws and the issues that come up during cases like these. We know the tactics insurance companies use to try to get out of paying the financial compensation you deserve. And we know how to build strong cases that get results.
Where did your accident occur?
We represent people who have been hurt on all highways in the area, including:
- US 52
- US 231
- Indiana 25
- Indiana 26
- Indiana 38
When you've been hurt in a highway accident, recovering financial compensation can be difficult. The driver who caused your accident may have been speeding, texting or driving recklessly. But that driver may not accept responsibility and may deny doing anything wrong.
Then there's the insurance company. They are always looking to pay as little as possible - or nothing at all. So they may suggest that you were partially to blame for what happened. They may also dispute the extent of your injuries and insist that you be examined by one of their doctors.
A history of helping the injured
Car insurance companies have lawyers looking out for their best interests. That's why you need an experienced car accident attorney who will fight for you. Our law firm has been helping injury victims recover financial compensation since 1913. We have a track record of results for clients through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts.
We can investigate your accident to find out what really happened. This includes gathering evidence and reviewing documents such as police reports and medical records. It includes identifying and interviewing witnesses about what they saw. It may also include consulting with accident reconstruction experts and other expert witnesses.
Our goal is to build a strong case that proves the negligence of another driver caused the accident that left you injured. This forces the insurance company to take your claim seriously. We also determine the total amount of damages you have suffered. This includes past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and damages such as pain and suffering.
Insurances companies know our firm's reputation for getting results. That's why so many are willing to sit down to negotiate a settlement. But we aren't interested in quick settlements that help the insurance company save money. If their settlement offer does not meet your needs, we are ready to fight for you in court.
