Seeking Maximum Compensation for Injury Victims in Northwest Indiana
Accidents of all kinds can lead to serious and even catastrophic injuries that can put various and severe forms of strain on you and your family. This strain can consist of the pain, suffering, and trauma you experience, your sudden inability to work, loss of income, mounting medical and out-of-pocket expenses, and possible damage to your personal property, such as your car. This can be made all the more stressful when trying to obtain the compensation you need and deserve from the other party and/or their insurance company. It is a well-known fact that these companies often engage in various tactics designed to reduce their liability and thus your compensation or try to deny it altogether.

Personal Injury Claims in Indiana
Personal injury claims can stem from many different types of accidents, such as the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Defective or dangerous consumer products
The most common cause of personal injury claims are traffic accidents which have the potential to inflict serious injuries on drivers and passengers. These accidents are typically caused by negligence and human error through such actions as speeding, distracted driving, driving while using a cell phone, drunk driving, running red lights and stop signs, and violating other traffic laws.
Personal injury claims are based on proving the liability of the at-fault party. This is done through photos, police reports, witness testimony, and other methods. Depending on the situation, this can be a complex matter which is why you should rely on a law firm that has experience in accident investigation as well as handling all of the other legal details, including settlement negotiation or litigation, to fight for the compensation you need.
Compensation in Personal Injury Cases
Compensation awarded in any personal injury case is generally broken down into two types. The first is economic damages based on actual quantified numbers, such as your medical expenses, lost income, and property damage. The other category is non-economic,which involves intangible damages that are not easily quantifiable such as pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and disfigurement. Our firm can handle this aspect of your claim along with all the other details involved when seeking a fair settlement or taking your case to trial.
