Sometimes it’s easy to know who to point fingers at in the aftermath of an accident. In some cases, however, driver negligence isn’t a factor in an accident. There are actually countless cases in which the factors that caused the accident were outside the drivers’ control. So when the other driver is not the cause, how do you go about getting compensation for any injuries you sustained or damages to your vehicle?

What should I do immediately after an accident?
This is a very common question, and whether you've been in an accident before or if this is your first experience, it can be overwhelming. When you’re involved in an accident, and even for some time after the accident, it’s difficult to get enough clarity to know what you need to do next. You may be injured and the on-scene portion of the aftermath may go by in a blur because of that or because you’re…
Absolutely not. There is never a fee for a consultation.
Will I be billed monthly for any costs?
No. At our discretion, we advance all costs during our representation of you and do not send monthly bills. At the end of our representation, all costs advanced will be clearly itemized for you so you know exactly where every dollar is going.
What’s meant by statute of limitations?
Statute of limitations refers to the need to file a lawsuit within a time limit. In Indiana, most injury cases, such as auto accidents or slip-and-fall claims, have a two-year statute of limitations, but not all. Some lawsuits, such as lawsuits against the government require a notice within a shorter period of time. The time begins to run when a cause of action accrues. A good example is someone negligently running into your car. The statute of limitation begins on the day of the accident. This issue can become more complicated, however. Sometimes, you have no way of knowing that you have a cause of action for years, such as discovering ill effects from taking a medication or being exposed to chemicals. It is important to seek the advice of an attorney and doctor if you suspect that you are having problems but don't know for sure if it relates to the negligence of another or an unreasonably dangerous product.
What am I entitled to recover after an accident?
You may be entitled to a number of different types of damages under Indiana law. Some of the more common types of damages in accident cases are: reasonable and necessary medical expenses, lost earnings, reduced earning capacity in the future, future medical expenses and prescriptions, pain and suffering, and permanent impairment.
Do I have to go to court if I want to recover monetary damages?
Maybe. Your case may settle even before your attorney files a lawsuit; on the other hand, it may go all the way to a trial and a jury verdict. The majority of lawsuits are settled before they get to trial, but what happens in your case depends on the facts, the law and the parties involved.
If the accident was my fault, can I still recover compensation?
Some states have no-fault insurance laws. This means that you may be able to make some recovery of economic damages from your own insurance company. In other states, if your fault is found to be over a certain level, it is more difficult to recover compensation. An attorney in your state can advise you on the rules in your area.
