Lafayette lawyers with a long history of results
People usually don't think of walking as being dangerous. But each year in Lafayette and throughout Indiana, pedestrians are often injured or killed. Many are left with permanent disabilities. The pedestrian accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan fight for their rights and help them recover the financial compensation they deserve.
Pedestrians have no protection when they are hit in a car accident. As a result, injuries in pedestrian accidents can be very serious. They can suffer multiple broken bones, cuts and lacerations, amputation, spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury. Some may require lifelong medical care.
Negligent drivers are usually responsible for these types of accidents. A driver may have been texting, speeding or under the influence of alcohol or other drugs. Drivers often deny responsibility for causing such accidents. And proving that they were negligent can be difficult.
Your interests come first here
In the meantime, you are left with mounting medical bills and lost income if you are unable to work. Insurance companies are supposed to help. But they are often only interested in keeping their profits as high as possible. That means they often try to keep any payments as low as possible. And they have a team of attorneys looking out for their best interests.
That's why you need an experienced attorney who will fight for you. We hold negligent drivers accountable and can help you recover financial compensation for the injuries you have suffered. Our attorneys have a long history of getting results for clients through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts.
Our legal team can investigate your accident. We know where to look for evidence that proves the driver who caused your accident was negligent. We review police reports, medical records and other documentation, interview witnesses who saw what happened, and even consult accident reconstruction experts when needed.
Fighting for the injured since 1913
We know how to build a strong case that the insurance company has to take seriously. Insurance companies know our firm, and that we have a reputation for never backing down. That's why so many agree to negotiate a settlement with us. But we are only interested in a settlement that meets your needs.
This includes compensation for all current and future medical expenses, as injuries suffered in pedestrian accident may require treatment years from now. It includes lost income if you are unable to work because of your injuries. Other injuries we may seek include pain and suffering, disability, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life.
If needed, we will be ready to fight for you in court. Attorney Charles V. Vaughan is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. This is only given to attorneys who have demonstrated expertise in the courtroom and have undergone a rigorous testing process. This certification is not required for lawyers. But we believe it helps us serve clients better.
