People who were injured on someone else’s property, a commercial business, or a government-owned property can file a premises liability case to sue for damages. If you or a loved one sustained an injury while on any of these types of properties, you may be entitled to collect compensation from the liable property owner.
Some examples of premises liability cases include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Fallen object accidents
- Drowning accidents
- Dog bites
- Exposure to toxic substances or chemicals
- Fires and explosions
If your injury was caused by one of the above scenarios or a different type of accident on a property in Brownsburg, a representative at our firm can talk with you in a phone consultation about your case and assess what kind of damages you may be able to pursue as compensation.
We can assign a Brownsburg premises liability lawyer to start preparing your case file right away.

We Can Help You Fight for Fair Compensation
During your consultation, one of our team members will ask you questions about your injury, the treatment procedures you underwent, and other aspects of your life that were affected by your injury. We do this to begin developing an idea of what kind of damages you may be entitled to collect from the liable party.
In premises liability cases, damages can be categorized as either economic damages or non-economic damages. The difference between these two categories lies in the numbers: economic damages are financially based and are proven with related documents that show their exact value, whereas non-economic damages are more personal and must be assigned a monetary value based on their impact on your life.
For example, to start calculating your damages, we can review whether you qualify for any of the following economic damages:
- Medical treatment costs
- Loss of income or wages up to the current date
- The expected loss of income or wages in the future
There may be other financial damages involved in your case that we may ask you about after reviewing your personal circumstances. Once we calculate your economic damages, we may then factor in more physical, mental, and emotional damages you may have incurred from the accident. Your non-economic damages may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of joy in life
- Psychological trauma
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of consortium
A Brownsburg premises liability lawyer can start working on your case as soon as possible. At Sevenish Law Firm, we do not want to let time go to waste when it comes to calculating your damages. Learn more about what kind of damages you may be qualified to claim.

You Have a Limited Time to File Your Lawsuit
IC §34-11-2-4 dictates that you generally have two years to file a premises liability lawsuit in Indiana. This law is referred to as the statute of limitations and serves as a general legal deadline, so other factors may affect whether you have a shorter amount of time to file (e.g., whether you are suing a municipality) or if your statutory deadline might get tolled (e.g., whether your case involves a minor).
Our legal team can review the accident report associated with your case to determine the approximate filing deadline for your case. We want to keep track of this date because should you miss the filing deadline, you would not be able to compel the liable party to compensate you for your injuries and damages. Your case might get dismissed by a judge, and you would be forced to cover your damages out of pocket.
When you work with Sevenish Law Firm, we make sure to pay attention to detail and notify you of any important deadlines or legal notices you should be aware of.
