Call an accident attorney who gets results

Indianapolis is known throughout the world for its famous motor speedway, the city’s beloved Colts, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and other popular attractions. Unfortunately, accidents happen here, too. If you’re dealing with one caused by someone else, thinking about what to do next can be overwhelming. That’s why it’s important to talk to someone who knows the area and understands how the legal system works in Indianapolis.

Who’s responsible for paying for my accident-related expenses?

If you have been injured in an accident in Indianapolis caused by someone else, the at-fault party is normally responsible for paying for your accident-related expenses. This is especially true in Indiana, which has a fault-based insurance system. As a result, the at-fault party’s insurance company is normally responsible for paying your medical bills and other accident expenses. Sometimes other parties may be responsible for financially compensating you if they were at fault in some way. That’s why it’s critical that you talk to an attorney who understands how the legal system works in Indiana and specifically in Indianapolis.

Can I file a lawsuit after my accident?

In many cases, you can file a lawsuit to obtain the compensation you deserve for your accident. This is especially true if the at-fault party or their insurance company denies your accident claim or refuses to pay you the full amount.

In Indiana, you have the right to file a lawsuit to obtain financial compensation, known as “damages” in legal cases. In Indianapolis in particular, you will likely need to file your lawsuit in Marion County Circuit Court and Superior Court, which have jurisdiction over civil lawsuits filed in Indianapolis or anywhere in Marion County.

It’s also important to remember that you only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit or take other legal action in Indiana. In most cases, the deadline (known as the statute of limitations) in Indiana for taking legal action is two years from the date of your accident. If you miss that deadline, you could miss out on your only opportunity to obtain the compensation you need for all your accident-related expenses.

Why should I hire an Indianapolis personal injury lawyer?

Accident claims can be very complicated legal cases. This is especially true in a large city like Indianapolis. That’s why it’s critical that you have an attorney who knows the area and knows how to investigate accidents here. When you have a lawyer on your side, you can take a stand and demand the compensation you deserve. An experienced Indianapolis law firm can help you in many different ways, including:

  • Conduct an independent, in-depth investigation of your accident to make sure the facts are accurate.

Truck Accidents

Commercial truck drivers often cause serious accidents with severe injuries. From jackknife accidents on I-74 to rollover accidents on I-65 or I-465, all it takes is one small mistake by a truck driver to cause a major collision in Indianapolis. That’s because these trucks are significantly larger and heavier that other vehicles on the road. Such cases can also be very complicated since specific state and federal laws apply to commercial truck accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, we can help.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are often at risk on the road due to other drivers.

Our Indianapolis lawyers can help you every step of the way after your crash. From thoroughly investigating your accident to dealing directly with insurance companies on your behalf, we can make sure your accident gets the attention it deserves.
