Accidents Can Happen Through No Fault of Our Own
Most of us do our best to exercise caution behind the wheel, but that does not always protect us from accidents. No matter how safe we try to be, there is little we can do to prepare for a drunk driver who runs a red light or a rollover crash caused by a defective tire. Another party could be responsible for your damages if your accident and injuries were caused by:
- A driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- A vehicle traveling in the wrong lane
- A defective traffic signal
- An undeployed airbag
- Engine problems
- Faulty road design
- A speeding motorist
- A vehicle following too closely
- Distracted or aggressive driving
- Brake problems
- A pothole or broken road surface
- Vehicle maintenance issues
We Can Help You Seek Financial Awards from the Liable Party
If your accident was someone else’s fault, they should pay for your losses. Our team can investigate your crash and determine your best course of action for pursuing financial recovery. You could have a case against one or more of the following parties:
- A negligent driver
- A driver’s employer
- A government entity
- A private roadway owner
- A vehicle manufacturer
- An auto parts manufacturer

What Damages Can You Seek for a Car Accident in Indiana?
Indiana allows personal injury victims to seek compensation for their out-of-pocket costs and intangible losses. Usually, awards fall into two categories:
- Economic damages – These are your actual, quantifiable monetary losses. Economic awards include your past and future accident-related medical bills, lost wages, loss of future earning potential (if applicable), and your vehicle repair or replacement costs. You may also seek awards for miscellaneous expenses, such as household services, rental car fees, and medical travel expenses.
- Non-economic damages – These damages compensate you for your physical pain, emotional suffering, and mental anguish. They may include awards for loss of a limb, body part, bodily function, depression, anxiety, scarring and disfigurement, chronic pain, and paralysis.
If your loved one sustained a fatal injury, we can help you seek economic and non-economic wrongful death compensation. A legal representative (executor) can recover medical costs, funeral and burial costs, and lost wages on behalf of your loved one’s estate and beneficiaries.
Additionally, the deceased’s surviving spouse and dependent children can seek awards for the loss of their loved one’s care, support, and companionship.
State Insurance Requirements
Indiana drivers must have liability insurance to pay for accidents they cause. The state requires a minimum of $25,000 in coverage for injuries or death to one person or $50,000 per accident, as well as $25,000 for property damages.
According to the Indiana Department of Insurance, drivers must also carry the above amounts in uninsured motorist coverage and $50,000 in underinsured motorist protection. These policies kick in if the driver who hit you cannot cover your damages.
We can help you negotiate with the liable driver’s insurance company, as well as your own provider. If insurance cannot offer the compensation you need, we can help you seek awards with a lawsuit.
How Long Do You Have to Pursue Your Case?
Our goal is to achieve a settlement for you without going to court. However, we will not back down from a trial if necessary.
If we cannot settle your case with the insurance company, you typically have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit, according to IC § 34-11-2-4. Under IC § 34-23-2-1, you also generally have two years to file a wrongful death case.
