We handle all types of personal injury cases in Fort Wayne
Our attorneys stand up for people from all walks of life who are injured due to someone else’s careless or negligent behavior. Some of the cases we handle in Fort Wayne include:
- Slip and falls: when you’re on private property, the property owner or manager has a responsibility to keep you safe or to warn you of any hazards. Falls are serious business; they’re one of the leading causes of traumatic brain injury, as well as other types of injuries such as broken bones. You deserve full compensation.
- Negligent security: the property owner’s responsibility also extends to keeping the premises safe from criminal activity. If you were assaulted and we can show the assault was caused by a lack of security on the premises, you have a case.
- Dog bites and animal attacks: dog owners have a responsibility under Indiana law to keep their pets safe. Both adults and children can be seriously harmed by an animal attack, and we know how to advocate for full compensation for those losses.
This is not an exhaustive list; any incident caused by negligence can give rise to a personal injury claim. In short, if you were hurt and it was someone else’s fault, we want to hear from you. We will listen to your story and explain your legal rights and options.
Our attorneys fight for full compensation for your injuries
The cost of an injury is far more than the bills for your initial medical treatment. If you’re out of work, you deserve compensation for your lost wages. If your injury is such that you will need future surgery or other medical treatment, those costs should be included in your claim as well. If you are permanently disabled and your ability to earn income is diminished, you need to be compensated for that lost future income. These are all examples of economic damages, or objectively verifiable losses that can be tied to a specific dollar figure.
We also pursue compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or lost quality and enjoyment of life. Those losses are more subjective in nature, but they are no less real, and you have every right under Indiana law to pursue compensation for them. If your injury was caused by especially reckless or intentional conduct, we may also be able to pursue punitive damages, which are intended to punish the at-fault party and send a strong message that their behavior was unacceptable.
The key is to remember that you only get one shot at full compensation for your injuries. Once you accept the insurance company’s money, that’s it; you can’t go back for more if your costs turn out to be higher. That’s why the insurance companies often make “lowball” offers soon after the accident, before the full cost is known. That’s also why we put in so much time and effort to fight for full compensation for our clients.
A Fort Wayne legal team you can trust, start to finish
When you come to our office for a free consultation, we’ll listen to your story and explain whether you have a viable personal injury claim. If you choose to hire us, we will do two things immediately. First, we’ll contact the insurance company and any other interested parties to inform them that they can send all further communications to our law firm; that way, we can protect your rights while you focus on healing. Second, we will launch a full investigation to identify how and why your injury happened. We talk to witnesses, review physical evidence, and hire experts to prove that your injury was someone else’s fault and calculate the full extent of your losses.
We know Fort Wayne, and we know what it takes to win in court in Allen County. Juries here want to see hard evidence, and we invest the effort to build strong and compelling cases. When the insurance company sees that we’re ready to take them to trial, they usually pay up, because they know our track record of results. Whether they cooperate or not, we are firmly in your corner for as long as it takes to get a successful result.
You can afford an experienced injury attorney
If you’re worried about whether you can afford to hire us, rest assured that you can. We work on a contingency fee, which means you only pay us if we win your case. Our firm will advance the costs to move your case forward, and if we don’t win, you don’t owe us a penny. In other words, there’s no risk to hiring an attorney. The only real risk is going it alone.
It’s important to act quickly after you’re injured. Over time, evidence disappears. Witnesses forget what they saw. Important legal deadlines expire. If you’ve been hurt, take immediate action to protect your legal rights. Contact us today to speak with an experienced Fort Wayne personal injury attorney about your case.
