Personal injuries take many forms, but some of the most common types include:
Automobile and truck accidents
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
Slips and falls
Many people who have sustained personal injuries mistakenly accept blame for the incident. Though it may seem to be your fault, personal injuries often have hidden causes that cannot readily be determined. An experienced personal injury lawyer understands many of these hidden causes and knows how to investigate accidents to uncover them.
When someone else is at fault for your injury, that person or entity may be responsible for paying for the damages incurred. This is not limited to medical expenses. If you’ve had to miss work, you can be compensated for your lost wages. If you are unable to perform your job in the future, you may be able to receive any future income that you can no longer earn. In addition, Indiana law allows for monetary compensation for mental anguish, pain, and suffering.
It is very important to seek counsel as soon as possible after an injury. Many times, critical evidence is lost or destroyed because no effort was made to obtain and/or secure the evidence. This is not usually anyone’s fault, but happens because an attorney wasn’t consulted and the injured party did not know any better.
Additionally, personal injury claims are subject to Indiana’s statute of limitations. This means that if you do not file a claim within two years, you forever lose your right to be compensated. If you or someone you know has been injured, do not hesitate to contact the litigation team at McKinney & Malapit Law.
