Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyer
Keffer Hirschauer practices personal injury law in Indianapolis and throughout Indiana statewide. Indiana law recognizes that drivers, property owners, nursing homes and others must use care to avoid causing injury to others. When individuals or businesses do injure others, they are liable to the injury victims for all legal damages caused by their negligence. The attorneys at Keffer Hirschauer LLP are skilled at investigating all aspects of an injury-causing accident. These skills are essential to building a strong case that clearly establishes the defendant’s liability in causing the injury and proves the full extent of the damage caused. With these facts in hand, our lawyers are ready to obtain a complete settlement from the insurance company or take the case to court if necessary. We have gone to court on behalf of injury victims and won time and again, including the most serious cases, such as those involving traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or wrongful death.
Our Indianapolis personal injury lawyers handles a wide range of personal injury cases throughout Indiana. Our attorneys are highly trained and experienced in all manner of motor vehicle accidents. Additionally, we take on cases of premises liability and nursing home abuse and neglect on behalf of persons injured in a fall due to the negligence or misconduct of property owners or their employees. Get justice for yourself or a family member after an injury by calling Keffer Hirschauer LLP for help with an Indianapolis personal injury claim.
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. As former Fatal Alcohol Crash Team prosecutors in Marion and Tippecanoe counties, Bradley Keffer and Tom Hirschauer are trained and experienced in crash scene investigations and have handled every aspect of a crash case from investigation through prosecution and jury verdict.
Our Indianapolis auto accident 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 take on all types of car accidents, including rideshare (Uber) accidents, accidents involving uninsured drivers or hit-and-run, and collisions involving pedestrians, bicycles, or e-scooters. Keffer Hirschauer LLP is the firm to turn to for help after a severe motorcycle accident or truck accident, including complex cases involving a jackknife or underride accident.
Property owners owe a duty to their guests and customers to ensure a safe environment for those they invite on their premises or who have a lawful right to be there. 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, 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’ll claim that accident victims weren’t looking where they were going and slipped and fell when they could have avoided the hazard. Our experienced premises liability lawyers know how to prove the property owner knew or should have known about the danger yet failed to fix or warn in a reasonable time, and we won’t let you get blamed for an accident that wasn’t your fault.
Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
When our loved ones require regular medical attention or a level of care that we can’t provide ourselves, we 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 90 nursing homes in Indianapolis, 25 are rated “below average” and another 16 as “much below average” by Medicare. 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 Indianapolis personal injury lawyers take action now 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.
