Types of Brownsburg Personal Injury Cases We Handle
A variety of different personal injury accidents can happen any way in Brownsburg. Our law firm manages cases involving negligence or carelessness, including:
Car accident personal injuries
Car accidents are a common reason personal injury lawsuits occur. When cars end up in a collision, the speed and size of the vehicles frequently place drivers and passengers at risk of injury, potentially requiring hospitalization and expensive, long-term treatment.
How many car accidents happen in Hendricks County?
According to Indiana Traffic Safety Facts, Hendricks County had 4,503 traffic accidents in 2019, resulting in 16 fatalities and 583 injuries.
What are causes of driver negligence?
Many drivers underestimate the consequences of negligence behind the wheel. Simply glancing at a text or failing to yield when making a left turn can result in devastating collisions.
Motorcycle accident injuries
If someone struck you while you were riding your motorcycle, we can negotiate with the liable party’s insurer for fair compensation, or, take the liable party to court.
Are motorcyclists supposed to have insurance in Indiana?
All Indiana motorcyclists are required to carry insurance, per the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
What insurance coverage can be claimed after a motorcycle accident?
Some of the insurance coverage you might deal with include:
- Bodily injury and property damage liability
- Underinsured motorist coverage should another driver have insufficient insurance
- Uninsured motorist coverage should you be a victim of a hit-and-run or struck by a driver with no insurance at all
- Additional insurance coverages you chose to buy
Pedestrian accident injuries
Since pedestrians do not have the protection that passengers and drivers inside the vehicle have, the injuries they suffer can be life-altering.
What injuries can happen to pedestrians hit by vehicles?
Below are some common injuries pedestrians experience in a collision:
- Broken bones
- Road rash
- Internal bleeding
- Internal organ damage
- Severe lacerations
- Facial trauma
- Torn ligaments and muscles
Bicycle accident injuries
While taking the county roads over to Eagle Creek Beach is a fantastic way to enjoy getting around Brownsburg, bicyclists have less protection than motorists.
Are bicycle accident lawyers expensive?
We structure our services so that you do not pay us unless we win your case. Our final fees come as a percentage of your settlement award.
Premises liability accidents
Accidents like swimming pool drownings, toxic exposure to chemicals, and falling objects deal injuries to visitors of hazardous properties. These incidents are crucial to talk about with a Brownsburg injury lawyer.
How long do you have to file a premises liability claim in Indiana?
IC §34-11-2-4 dictates that you generally have two years to file a premises liability lawsuit in Indiana. This law is the state’s statute of limitations, and is the deadline you must meet to avoid having your case dismissed.
Traumatic brain injuries
We help victims of brain injuries and their families fight for justice and pursue compensation on their behalf.
How do you recover compensation after suffering a TBI?
Our legal team can help you file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit that includes medical and general damages.
A burn injury can cause hospitalization, permanent nerve damage, and physical disfigurement that impacts a victim emotionally and financially for their lifetime.
Who can you sue for a burn injury in Indiana?
A driver who caused a fiery crash or a property owner whose premises caught fire are examples of potentially liable parties in a burn injury case.
If another person’s dog bit you, we can help you take civil action against the negligent owner, or hold another party liable if a stray dog attacked you.
What should you do after a dog bite?
Since dog bites can rupture the skin, infection and other types of health complications are possible if not treated fast, especially if the dog was sick with rabies. Seek treatment immediately, as we can demand compensation for any medical procedures or expenses you had to pay for.
Does Indiana have a “one bite” rule?
Yes. This rule means that dog owners may be able to challenge their liability if they can prove that they had no prior knowledge that their dog would act aggressively or had a history of violence.
Construction site accidents
If you or a loved one was injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation from the construction company, a municipality, or another liable party involved in your case.
What hazards exist at a construction site?
People and construction workers may be injured by trip hazards, collisions with construction vehicles, hits from falling objects, live electrical wires, fires or explosions, structural collapses, and getting caught-in or crushed by machinery.
Can a construction accident lawyer help you?
We can help you whether:
- You or a loved one are a construction worker injured on a job site due to the negligence of a third party, a defective equipment manufacturer, or a fellow worker that works for a third party company.
- You or someone you know are a driver, pedestrian, or cyclist injured on a construction site due to hazardous conditions left by a construction company.
Other types of personal injury accidents
Although car accidents are a common reason that people choose to file personal injury claims, they are not the only reason. Any time someone makes an error or behaves in a negligent manner resulting in you suffering an injury, you may be able to recover compensation. Some other types of accidents that are often eligible for personal injury claims include:
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Slip and fall accidents
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
When you suffer an injury because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek damages for your medical bills, reduction in quality of life, lost wages, pain, and suffering.
Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Case
The key part of winning a personal injury claim after any kind of accident is showing that the responsible party acted negligently, and this negligence caused the incident. This is not always an easy process, especially if police officers investigating the accident cannot easily determine how the accident happened.
When you hire a Brownsburg personal injury lawyer from Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., our team will begin by investigating the accident. This will involve interviewing witnesses, studying the police report, and speaking with your doctors. To prove negligence, we will collect any relevant evidence that shows how the responsible party’s actions played a role in the incident that caused your injuries.
Although you have the right to represent yourself in a personal injury claim, this can be an extremely difficult process for those who do not deal with cases like this regularly. Our team takes pride in representing victims of negligence and is dedicated to personal injury law. For a free case review with a member of our staff, contact us at 317-720-3229.
How an Attorney Can Help
After you suffer an injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may be facing high medical bills from frequent appointments with doctors and with physical therapists, as well as pain medications and other treatments.
It can be challenging to take the time needed to recover from your injuries while also dealing with the insurance company representing the party who caused your injuries. When you hire a Brownsburg personal injury lawyer with our firm, we can take over the day-to-day tasks required for filing a claim and negotiate with the insurance company for you.
We will also study the facts in the case, building a case that shows the other party made a mistake that led to your injuries. Should our negotiations with the insurer fail to come to a fair settlement, we can represent your interests in court.
We Focus on Personal Injury Cases
Other law firms may handle personal injury cases along with a multitude of other types of cases. This means they are trying to be a jack of all trades rather than mastering one of them to best help their clients. At the Sevenish Law Firm, P.C., we only take on personal injury cases. We take pride in helping the victims of negligent behavior to receive the fairest possible settlement.
As soon as you choose to hire us, we can begin working on your case. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not require payment upfront—our payment comes from the final settlement in the case. Call today for a free case review at 317-720-3229.
