What can I be compensated for after an accident?
The bottom line is you should be compensated for any accident-related expense. Most people only think about expenses that come up immediately after an accident, including medical bills or vehicle repairs or replacement costs. But it’s also important to think long term. If you need long-term medical care due to your accident, such expenses should be covered. The same goes for replacement income if you cannot return to work due to your accident-related injury.
Many insurance companies want people to only think about the short-term financial impact of an accident. That’s why insurance companies will often make a settlement offer soon after an accident. They’re hoping you’ll accept an offer that doesn’t even come close to covering all your future expenses. Skilled attorneys know how to identify these lowball offers. Your lawyer can demand more compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company or take legal action if they refuse to negotiate in good faith.
Who can I sue if someone else caused by accident?
Because Indiana has a fault-based insurance system, you will likely need to file a personal injury lawsuit in Muncie against the at-fault party. Or rather, you will likely need to take legal action against the at-fault party’s insurance company since they’re the ones who are often responsible for financially compensating you for your accident-related expenses.
It’s also important to realize that you only have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit or take other legal action after an accident in Indiana. Specifically, you only have two years from the date of your accident to take legal action. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations. If you miss this deadline, you could miss out on your only opportunity to obtain the financial compensation you deserve for your accident.
How can a Muncie personal injury lawyer help me?
There are many reasons why you should hire an attorney if you or a loved one has been injured in an accident in Muncie or another neighboring community. Some of these reasons include:

- Consulting with accident-reconstruction experts if necessary to provide a more in-depth analysis of what happened.

- If the at-fault party or their insurance company refuses to cooperate, taking legal action on your behalf.
