Many of our clients also suffer emotionally following an accident. Painful injuries that are slow to heal can cause anxiety, depression, and sleeplessness. When a victim is permanently scarred or disabled, then the emotional fallout is that much greater. Indiana law allows a victim to obtain compensation for medical care but also for their pain and emotional distress.
Why Bring a Personal Injury Claim?
When someone else’s conduct harms you, they should be responsible for paying compensation. That is a basic principle of fairness.
Many of our clients who are injured in car accidents, truck accidents, and slip and falls are unable to work. They need expensive medical care to return to something resembling normal. The financial losses often exceed tens of thousands of dollars. Add in property damage, and they are in a deep financial hole—through no fault of their own.
The only way to obtain compensation is to bring a claim. The purpose of the claim is to make the victim “whole” and should include a generous amount to make up for the pain, suffering, and inconvenience that the victim has suffered.
How a Lawyer Helps
A common misconception is that negotiating a settlement is easy. Nothing could be more wrong. For one thing, the days following an accident are difficult. Many of our clients have no one who can help take care of them. Trying to bring a claim while struggling with bodily injuries and isolation is difficult.
Our Kokomo personal injury lawyers can help. We can protect your rights to compensation by notifying the defendant of your intent to sue. We will find evidence—witnesses, physical evidence, medical records—that help your case come alive and explain how you were injured.
Without a lawyer, too many people accept too little for their injuries. They also neglect to file a lawsuit in a timely manner, forfeiting their right to ever receive compensation. Now is not the time to embark on a do-it-yourself project. Instead, get the legal experience you need.
