Attorneys Bradley Keffer and Tom Hirschauer have spent years fighting for the rights of individuals against overwhelming odds. From their start as prosecuting attorneys in Marion and Tippecanoe Counties—including leadership on Fatal Alcohol Crash Teams—to establishing themselves as personal injury attorneys in demand throughout the state, Bradley and Tom have developed keen insight into how to maximize compensation in personal injury cases.
Indianapolis Personal Injury Attorneys Experienced in the Most Complex Cases
While most crashes in Indiana only cause property damage, as many as 15 to 20 percent of wrecks can result in personal injury to a vehicle occupant or pedestrian, and some even involve a fatality. The dedicated personal injury attorneys at Indianapolis Injury Lawyers have significant experience successfully investigating and trying auto accident cases as well as other personal injury cases.
Bradley Keffer and Tom Hirschauer received training directly from investigators who personally investigated accidents to prosecute and convict persons criminally responsible. Most Indiana injury lawyers do not receive this kind of training, which provides shrewd insight into the cause of accidents. Further, prosecuting attorneys must meet a much higher standard to prove a criminal case than a civil case, and Bradley Keffer and Tom Hirschauer were the attorneys trusted by the State of Indiana to prosecutor these cases. They have taken on the hardest cases and won, and are ready to help you achieve success in an Indiana personal injury case, insurance claim, or litigation in any Court in Indiana.
Not every Indiana personal injury lawyer can tell skid marks from yaw marks or knows the significance of the difference. Fewer still know what hot shocks are and how they can help determine whether a driver had headlights on at the moment of a nighttime crash. Our skill and training give us an eye for detail and an edge in litigating any personal injury claim.
Motor Vehicle Accidents and Other Types of Personal Injury Cases
As citizens, we have an obligation or a duty to act in lawful, responsible, and careful ways so as to do our part to prevent harm or injury to others. Failure to do so can result in automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, neglect or abuse causing injury to others. Indiana injury lawyers are specially trained to help you to recover from damages and injuries caused by the neglect, misconduct, or unlawful actions.
Drivers have a duty to drive safely and carefully, paying attention to the traffic, weather, road conditions, and adjusting their driving accordingly. Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands of vehicle accidents happen in Indiana every year because of drivers who were speeding, drowsy or fatigued, driving drunk, or texting while driving, or engaging in other distracted driving behaviors. Our training and experience in crash scene investigations has helped us effectively litigate every aspect of crash cases from investigation through prosecution and jury verdict.
Our Indiana injury lawyers have litigated some of the most serious crashes and understand the mechanics of all types of accidents, including rear-end and head-on collisions, multi-vehicle crashes and rollover accidents. We accept all types of car accidents, including rideshare (Uber or Lyft) accidents, accidents involving uninsured drivers or hit-and-run, and collisions involving pedestrians, bicycles, or e-scooters. We have extensive experience with severe motorcycle accidents or truck accidents, including complex cases involving a jackknife or underride accident. Indianapolis Injury Lawyers is the firm to turn to for help after a motor vehicle accident of any level of complexity.
Premises Liability Cases
Property owners owe a duty to their guests and customers to ensure a safe environment for those invited on the premises or who have a lawful right to be there. Indiana injury lawyers know this duty includes fixing dangerous conditions and warning people about hazards on the property that may not be obvious.
Slip and fall accidents can be painful and traumatic and cause lasting injury. They can also be complex cases that are challenging to prove. Property owners often claim they did not know about the danger or have time to fix it before the accident happened. Other times, they may argue that accident victims weren’t looking where they were going and slipped and fell when they could have avoided the hazard. Our experienced Indiana personal injury lawyers know how to counter the property owner arguments and show their responsibility for injury due to their failure to take reasonable and timely steps and precautions.
Dog bites are another hazard faced with owners do not maintain control of their animals. When the injury occurs on the dog owner’s property, the case involves elements of premises liability. Regardless of where the injury occurs, you need experienced counsel to fight for the compensation you’re due from the responsible party.
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Indiana injury lawyers know how difficult it is when our loved ones require regular medical attention or a level of care that we can’t provide ourselves. At a certain point, we may have to entrust their care to the trained and skilled professionals at a nursing home or assisted living facility. Unfortunately, these facilities don’t always live up to their mandate to provide quality care.
All too often, nursing home residents are the victim of neglect or even intentional abuse. Of the nursing homes in Indianapolis, a large number are rated “below average” or “much below average” on medicare.gov. Even when you think you’ve found a good facility, staffing turnover, shortages, and other factors may still put your loved one at risk. Complaining to state agencies about abuse or neglect can be slow, frustrating and ineffective.
Our Indiana injury lawyers take action to stop and prevent any further abuse while seeing to it that your family members get the care and compensation they need when they have been deprived of medical services, dignity, or the quality of life to which they are entitled.
How Our Indiana Injury Lawyers Can Help—Even if You’re Found Partly at Fault
You may be entitled to compensation even if you are found to have contributed to the cause of your injury. Any award would just be reduced based on the percentage you are determined to be at fault. Our deep litigation experience and creative strategies can help reduce your exposure to such reductions and maximize your potential recovery.
