Understanding the Insurance Claim Process
We can help you with every step of the insurance claim process, and we will keep you updated on all aspects of your case. We will also work to help you understand the claim process.
Gathering Evidence of Negligence and Your Loss
We will typically begin by collecting evidence of your injuries as well as evidence to show that another party was liable for your injuries. This may involve gathering:
- Your medical records
- A police report (if one was made)
- Video or photos from the accident scene
- Eyewitness testimony
- And more
We will need to show that the other party’s inability to create a safe environment directly led to your injuries and losses.
The Final Decision on a Settlement is Yours
As we work through the case, negotiating with the insurance company that represents the negligent party, the insurer may offer a settlement amount. Insurers often seek to settle personal injury cases outside of a trial, if possible.
We will help you determine whether the settlement offer is fair or whether we should make a counteroffer. We can provide advice about how you may want to proceed, but the final decision will always be yours.
Will Will Keep Your Case on Track
If you decide that you would like to reject the settlement and continue negotiations, eventually moving toward a trial, we will be ready to represent you in court. We will take pride in presenting your side of the story in a trial, showing the insurer why you deserve the settlement offer you are requesting.
We will make sure your case meets all deadlines as it moves forward. This includes complying with Indiana state statute, IC § 34-11-2-4, which gives you two years to file a lawsuit after the date of the injury.

Understanding Negligence in Property Liability Cases
Negligence in premises liability cases means that the property owner (or the party that is leasing the property) could have prevented or fixed a problem that led to your injuries. We will work to prove that the property owner acted in a negligent manner, which is key to pursuing your personal injury case.
Some of the most common reasons for a premises liability case include the following:
Slip and Fall
When a property owner fails to keep the property safe for visitors, the injured party can seek compensation. A fall can occur for reasons, including:
- Torn carpeting
- Wet indoor floors
- Broken stairs
- Uneven sidewalk
- Failure to remove ice and snow
- Improper safety lighting
We can use any of the above forms of negligence as evidence in your case.
Property owners often must provide security, protecting visitors. If you suffered an assault on the property with no security personnel to help you, you may be able to file a claim or lawsuit.
Swimming Pool Accident
Homeowners with swimming pools need to meet local regulations for fencing the area and for preventing small children from wandering near the pool.
If you fell into a neighbor’s pool and suffered injuries, you may be able to pursue a claim or lawsuit if the neighbor did not adequately secure the pool area.
