You can seek compensation with the help of a Plainfield personal injury lawyer from Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. Our team is committed to recouping compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and other related expenses. Additionally, we offer our services at no upfront or out-of-pocket cost to you. 

Our Team Handles These Practice Areas

Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. is a firm dedicated to personal injury law. We’re not a jack of all trades. Our team is focused on proving negligence and securing compensation for injured individuals. 

Car accidents

Car accidents in Plainfield are sometimes unavoidable. You can learn whether you are entitled to compensation from a negligent party by contacting a car accident lawyer today.

How does insurance cover the cost of a car accident?

Indiana requires drivers to carry a minimum of:

  • $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury coverage for all persons per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability coverage

If your costs exceed the at-fault driver’s policy limits, you can file a claim with your insurance company because Indiana also requires vehicle owners to have at least:

  • $50,000 in underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage
  • $25,000 in underinsured motorist bodily injury coverage
  • $10,000 coverage for property damaged caused by an uninsured driver

However, some injuries may cause financial losses exceeding insurance coverage. When this occurs, a Plainfield car accident lawyer can file a civil lawsuit against the responsible driver for excess economic costs.

Truck accidents

Working with a Plainfield truck accident lawyer ensures that you seek damages from all liable parties, which improves your ability to receive just compensation for your injuries.

Who are liable parties in a truck accident claim?

If you were struck by a commercial vehicle, a Plainfield truck accident lawyer may pursue damages against the driver’s employer.

For example, if the driver has an extensive history of violating traffic laws and their employer hired them anyways, a Plainfield truck accident lawyer can argue that the company was negligent in hiring the at-fault driver.

Some accidents are caused by defective vehicles which may be subject to a product liability claim or an active recall. That means a lawyer could pursue additional compensation against the vehicle manufacturer.

Motorcycle accidents

Our motorcycle accident lawyer in Plainfield believes that your rights should be protected following a crash. Let us handle your case while you focus on healing.

What are frequent causes of motorcycle accidents?

Typically when a negligent driver strikes a motorcyclist, they’re violating one or more of the rules of the road:

  • They don’t keep a safe distance from a motorcycle.
  • They prevent a motorcyclist from passing or misjudge distance when passing a motorcycle themselves.
  • They don’t check their blind spot for a motorcycle before switching lanes.
  • They open their car doors in front of a passing motorcyclist.

Bicycle accidents

Bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles can be severe and lead to devastating injuries and losses. If you were a cyclist injured in a car accident that was not your fault, you might be entitled to significant compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.

Whose insurance covers bicycle accidents in Indiana?

When you’re hit by a car while riding a bike, your auto insurance company may step in to cover you. You may also file a claim against the at-fault driver’s auto insurance. This all depends on whether these incidents are covered by each party’s respective policies. If the driver who injured you has no insurance, or if they fled the scene and can’t be found, check with your own insurance’s uninsured motorist coverage to see if bicycle accidents are covered.

Other personal injury cases we take

Some of our additional practice areas include:

  • Bus accidents 
  • Product liability incidents
  • Pedestrian accidents 
  • On-the-job injuries 

Our firm also extends legal aid to families who have lost loved ones. 

You Must File Your Lawsuit Within a Certain Period

IC § 34-11-2-4 imposes Indiana’s personal injury statute of limitations. All claimants must file their cases within this period or risk losing the right to seek damages.

You generally have two years from the accident date to file your civil case. Some circumstances may give you more or less time to file, however. For instance, if you’re filing a lawsuit against a government agency, you could have 180 days to file––about six months from your accident’s date. 

Our injury firm serving Plainfield can evaluate your case and advise you of any filing deadlines. 

Our Law Firm Will Seek These Damages on Your Behalf

When another party’s negligence causes you harm, you could have the right to seek financial recovery for your injury-related expenses. Your losses will be classified into two categories. 

They include: 

Economic Damages

Economic damages account for the monetary losses your injuries caused. Indiana doesn’t place a cap on economic damages. So, there’s no limit to what you can seek for these expenses. 

Examples of economic damages include: 

  • Medical bills, including hospitalization, the ambulance, and surgical procedures 
  • Lost wages, bonuses, and employee benefits 
  • Tips, commissions, and hourly rates 
  • Property damage expenses (if your vehicle was damaged in a collision, for instance) 
  • Funeral costs

Keeping your receipts and copies of bills related to your accident is essential. This will allow our team to calculate your losses.  

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages pertain to your non-tangible hardships. Your lawyer will calculate these losses based on certain aspects of your case, including whether you suffered a long-term injury or lost a loved one. 

Compensable non-economic damages include: 

  • Pain and suffering 
  • Disability 
  • Scarring 
  • Disfigurement 
  • Mental anguish 
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Loss of consortium 

You might qualify for other losses than those listed here, and it all depends on your situation. 

Sevenish Law Firm, P.C. Has Recovered Millions for Injured Claimants in Indiana

We resolve many of our cases without going to trial. When this happens, the outcome of the claim is confidential – only between us, our client, and the liable insurer. While our firm can’t share exact dollar amounts when referencing our previous outcomes, our staff can give general ballpark figures. 

Here are some noteworthy case outcomes

  • We recovered a seven-figure settlement for our client that was run off the road by a reckless driver. She suffered multiple fractures and needed a wheelchair throughout her recovery period. Although she partially contributed to the collision, our team settled her case. 
  • We secured a high six-figure settlement for our client that broke her wrist in a car accident. She was unable to continue working due to the severity of her condition, but our lawyers were able to secure compensation that accounted for this fact. 
  • We secured a high six-figure settlement for our client that suffered injuries in a construction zone. He also contributed to the accident, but that did not deter us from resolving his case. 

What Does Our Legal Team Need to Prove in Your Case?

Most injury cases require us to prove negligence. This involves showing that another party’s reckless or careless actions harmed you. For instance, all motorists must drive safely. When drivers violate traffic safety laws, they breach their obligation and could be liable for any resulting accidents. 

Some cases are different, however. For instance, in product liability cases, you don’t have to prove negligence to recover damages. Instead, you must prove that the product in question hurt you, and as a result, you suffered losses. 

If you were involved in an accident such as the one WTHR reported on, we could use the black box from the truck and the other driver’s driving record to support your claim. Dog bite injuries that occurred like this one featured in WLS reporting could require eyewitness accounts from your neighbors and medical care receipts.
