What to do if you’re injured in Muncie
If you’re injured, the first thing you should do is make sure the scene is safe. Call 911 and request an ambulance if you or anyone else at the scene needs medical attention. Depending on the nature and location of the accident, you may need to call the Muncie Police Department or the Ball State University Police to investigate; if so, be sure to get a copy of the police accident report or incident report. Likewise, if your accident happened at a business or other private property, get a copy of whatever incident report is filled out by the property owner or manager.
Start gathering evidence at the scene. Take pictures of any visible injuries, property damage, and other evidence. If there are security cameras nearby, take note of that, as well. Get names and contact information for any witnesses. Keep your comments to anyone else at the scene (including the investigating officer) brief, sticking to the facts of what happened. Don’t apologize or say anything regarding fault.
Get medical attention right away. Go to your primary care provider, an urgent care clinic, or the emergency room at Ball Memorial Hospital. Even if you feel OK, getting checked out by a doctor is the safest option for both your health and your legal rights. Be sure to keep copies of all medical records and follow your doctor’s instructions.
Then, contact us. We know how to deal with the insurance company to protect your rights and start investigating your accident to build your case for full compensation. Don’t go it alone; discuss your rights with an experienced Muncie personal injury attorney.
Under Indiana law, you have recourse
When you add up the full cost of an injury – medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, future medical care, lost earning potential, and more – the total amount of compensation you need can easily be in the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Indiana law is clear: if your injury was someone else’s fault, you have recourse. However, the insurance companies don’t see it that way. Your injury is a threat to their profit margins, and they will fight hard to pay you as little as possible or nothing at all.
They’re looking for any excuse to reduce or deny your claim. We won’t give them one. Glaser & Ebbs will launch a full investigation to secure the evidence needed to prove your accident was someone else’s fault. We also take the time to prove the full extent of damages (financial compensation) you need for your injury. We may retain expert witnesses, such as medical professionals or economists, to help us quantify your damages and build a compelling case for full compensation.
We know the law, we know the judges and juries in Delaware County, and we know how to build a convincing case. The insurance companies know our reputation and track record. When they see we’re ready to hold them accountable, they are usually willing to pay up. If they won’t pay, we know what to do next. Throughout this process, we’re on your side, keeping you informed and clearing room for you to focus on healing.
