Helping the injured in Greater Lafayette
Many accidents happen on someone else's property, resulting in injury. Property owners have a responsibility to keep their premises safe. When that responsibility is not met, victims may be able to recover compensation. The personal injury attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan hold negligent owners accountable and help you recover financial compensation.
Our firm has been helping the injured since we opened in 1913. We have a long history of getting results through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts after a personal injury accident. Our focus is the same as it's always been - on getting the best possible outcome for our clients.
"Premises" could be a business or a private home. There are different examples of negligence that can lead to a personal injury accident on someone else's property:
- Slippery or cluttered stairs or walkways
- Poor lighting that makes it difficult to see where you are going
- Lack of guardrails
- Lack of security measures to protect people from assault
Challenges you may face
But just because you were hurt on another person's property doesn't mean you have a premises liability claim. You need to be able to prove that a property owner failed to meet a "duty of care" by allowing a dangerous condition to continue, and that you were hurt as a direct result. Filing a claim for compensation can be complicated.
That's why you need an experienced personal injury attorney on your side. We know the laws in Indiana and how to navigate the legal system. We know how to build a strong case that holds property owners accountable and helps you recover the compensation you deserve. We know how to deal with insurance companies when they dispute claims.
A long history of getting results
Insurance companies are supposed to help people. But they often deny any responsibility. They may dispute liability, or the extent of your injuries. They may even suggest you were to blame for the accident that left you injured. That's why we get the facts to build a strong case they have to take seriously.
If you were injured on someone else's property, it's important to get legal advice as soon as possible. There's a statute of limitations that sets a deadline for taking legal action. And over time, evidence can get lost and the memories of witnesses can fade.
