What to do if you’re injured in Indianapolis
Your priority after any accident should be to make sure the scene is safe. If you or anyone else needs emergency medical attention, call an ambulance. Depending on the nature of the incident, you may need to call the Indianapolis Police to investigate; be sure to get a copy of the accident or incident report. If you were hurt on someone else’s property, report the incident to the property owner or their representative, and again, make sure you get a copy of the incident report.
At the scene of the accident, you need to start gathering evidence. Be sure to take pictures of the scene itself, any visible injuries, and any property damage. If an object was involved in your incident (for example, if you slipped on something), save the object. Get names and contact information for any witnesses – but keep your comments at the scene brief, avoiding saying anything regarding fault for the accident.
You need to get medical attention right away, even if you feel fine. See your primary care doctor or go to the emergency room at one of Indianapolis’ many hospitals. Going to a doctor not only protects your health, but also creates a written record of your injuries in case an insurance company later tries to dispute them.
For the same reason, you need to contact us right away, ideally before you talk to an insurance company or other party to the accident. The sooner we get involved, the sooner we can start our investigation and begin dealing with the insurance company on your behalf.
We fight for full compensation for injuries in Indianapolis
The injury itself happened at a single moment in time, but the consequences ripple out across your life. It’s not just the initial medical treatment; it’s the long-term effects on your health, your ability to work, and your life. Under Indiana law, you deserve full compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs you have endured because of the accident. The insurance company won’t make this easy, though. They are well-practiced at finding excuses to reduce or deny claims, and their job is to make you go away for as little as possible – or nothing at all.
We know how to fight back. That starts with investigating the accident itself to prove fault and listening to your story to understand the full impact of the injury on your life. We may retain expert witnesses to help us calculate the full amount of damages (financial compensation) you deserve for your injuries. Armed with that information, we take a hard line in negotiations with the insurance company to maximize the money that ends up in your pocket.
Usually, we’re able to get the insurance companies to pay a fair settlement, but if they won’t, we’re prepared to take your case to court and advocate for your rights in the civil justice system. We know the courts, judges, and juries in Marion County, and we know how to build a case that a jury will find compelling. Our track record speaks for itself.
Put experience on your side as you rebuild your life
We can’t promise that the process will be fast, especially if the insurance company decides to be difficult, but we absolutely can promise to be with you every step of the way. Our attorneys will guide you through the personal injury process, keeping you informed on the progress of your case, including you in high-level strategy, and taking care of the day-to-day negotiations so that you can focus on what really matters: your health, your family, and your life.
The sooner you contact us and the sooner we can start our investigation, the better off you will be. Don’t go into the personal injury process on your own. Put an experienced personal injury lawyer on your side. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation at our Indianapolis office.
