Anderson Accident Attorneys You Can Trust

We can demand the compensation you deserve

Anderson’s residents take pride in their charming downtown historic district, which includes the Paramount Theatre and the Anderson Center for the Arts. Anderson University has also attracted students to the city from around the country for more than a century.

Unfortunately, accidents happen here, too. When they do, it’s important that injury victims and their families understand their rights and the legal options available to them. That’s why our legal team wants to meet with you at our Anderson office on Columbus Avenue.

Since 1913, Vaughan & Vaughan has been helping injury victims in Indiana obtain the financial compensation they need for their accident-related expenses. We thoroughly understand how the state’s legal system works. That’s why we consistently obtain sizable settlements and verdicts for injury victims and their families. Case results matter here – and so do you.

How much is my accident claim worth?

Every accident claim presents its own unique challenges. That’s because the circumstances surrounding each accident are often very different. This is important to remember when trying to calculate how much your accident claim could be worth. Your claim should cover all your accident-related expenses, both short term and long term. This may include:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Surgical procedures
  • Follow-up doctor’s appointments
  • Physical therapy
  • Replacement income during your recovery
  • Lost future income if you cannot return to work

All of these expenses – and many more – need to be taken into consideration when requesting compensation for your accident. That’s why it’s important to talk with an experienced attorney who knows how to handle complex legal cases. Otherwise, you could end up having to pay for some or all of your accident-related expenses yourself.

Who can I sue if I’m hurt in an accident?

Indiana has a fault-based insurance system. As a result, the at-fault party is responsible for compensation for you or anyone else injured in your accident. Normally, the at-fault party’s insurance company will pay for your accident-related expenses. But sometimes, insurance companies deny legitimate claims. In such cases, you may need to file a lawsuit against the insurance company to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Other times, depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to take legal action against other at-fault parties. This could include businesses or property owners, especially in cases involving slip and fall accidents or other premises liability claims.

It’s also important to realize you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action in Indiana. Specifically, you can only file a lawsuit in most cases within two years of the date of your accident. If you miss that deadline (known as the statute of limitations), you could miss out on your opportunity to obtain compensation for accident-related expenses. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an attorney right away who fully understands Indiana’s legal system.

Truck Accidents

Commercial truck accidents often cause serious injuries. Whether it’s a rollover accident on I-69 or an underride truck accident on Scatterfield Road, all it takes is one small mistake by a truck driver to cause an accident with catastrophic injuries. That’s because 18-wheelers, big rigs, delivery trucks and other commercial vehicles often weigh significantly more than most motor vehicles. In addition, such accidents can involve several at-fault parties – from the trucking company to the company that loaded the truck, especially if they did so improperly. All of these issues need to be taken into consideration when building a legal case. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced Anderson attorney working with you. Our lawyers fully understand the state and federal laws governing truck accidents in Indiana. We know what strategies work. That’s why we regularly obtain sizable settlement and verdicts for truck accident victims and their families.

As your attorney, we can work with you to build the strongest possible legal case and demand the compensation you deserve for your accident-related expenses. This is especially important since many motorcyclists often wrongly get blamed for causing collisions involving other drivers. Our Anderson motorcycle accident attorneys know the truth. We know that most motorcyclists follow the rules of the road. It’s other drivers who are often to blame. So whether you’re dealing with a crash caused by a distracted driver on East 14th Street or a collision at an intersection involving a driver who ran a red light, we can thoroughly investigate your case and find the evidence you need to demand the compensation you deserve.

Whatever happened to you or a loved one, it’s important to take strong legal action to protect your rights. Otherwise, you could end up having to pay for your accident-related expenses yourself. Our Anderson personal injury attorneys know what’s at stake and know what to do. That’s why we consistently obtain sizable settlements and verdicts for injury victims and their families. Often, we negotiate directly with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Many agree to cooperate with us. If they refuse to do so, we will not hesitate to file lawsuit or take other legal action on your behalf. We can also work with your family if you need assistance with a wrongful death case or have a case involving an injury on a college campus.
