If you become hurt on someone else’s property, you may be able to file a personal injury claim. Property owners have a responsibility to care for their property and warn visitors of any hazards they may encounter. Common premises liability claims include:

- Swimming pool accidents;
- Injuries from bar fights where they failed to provide enough security;
- Assaults in parking lots that did not have proper lighting; and
According to the Indiana State Department of Health, motor vehicle collisions were the second leading cause of death within Indiana in 2018. For every fatal crash there are many more non-fatal crashes that involve serious injury. If you were in a collision and another driver caused the crash, it is important that they are held liable for the injuries you and any other passengers sustained. Bradley Keffer and Tom Hirschauer are both former Fatal Alcohol Crash Team prosecutors, who have expertise in everything from collecting traffic collision evidence to jury trials.
Abuse and Neglect in Nursing Homes
STATS Indiana estimates that there were 23,141 adults over the age of 65 in Hendricks County in 2018. The baby boomer generation is aging and many are ending up in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. While we want to believe they are all getting phenomenal care, the truth is that some caregivers abuse elderly patients because they are a more vulnerable population. Verbal abuse can result in stress, which can lead to a resident’s mental and even physical decline while physical abuse can result in severe injuries and even death. If a nursing home is short staffed, even for brief periods on a weekend, it can lead to neglect and illness or injury. If you suspect a loved one is experiencing abuse or neglect you need to report it and seek legal advice from a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
