Do I Have a Personal Injury Case in Indiana?

A personal injury claim allows you to recover compensation for damages caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness. You may have a case if you can show that you suffered injuries and other losses directly because of the negligent or reckless actions of another person or organization. This can stem from situations such as vehicular accidents, slips and falls, dog bites, and other types of incidents. It is also crucial that the harm you suffered has led to actual damages, such as physical injuries, emotional distress, or financial losses like medical bills and lost wages. 
There are certain circumstances in which you do not necessarily have a personal injury case even if you can prove negligence and suffered actual losses. Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that provides financial assistance to employees who suffer injuries or illnesses as a direct result of their employment. Although it serves as a crucial lifeline for many individuals, workers' compensation laws can limit one's ability to bring a personal injury claim against their employer, even if they acted negligently.
After suffering injuries caused by another party, it is always in your best interest to speak to a legal professional right away. Our Crown Point personal injury attorneys can review your circumstances and walk you through your legal options.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Many people associate personal injury claims with vehicular accidents. While many auto accident victims do pursue personal injury claims against negligent drivers, this type of legal action can also involve many other types of accidents and negligence. Our team at Alvarez Law Offices is prepared to represent you in personal injury cases involving:

  • Bicycle Accidents

    While bicycles are meant to share the road with automobiles, motorists often do not show cyclists the same courtesy afforded to other drivers, leading to accidents. These collisions can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities due to the lack of protection bicycles offer in comparison to motor vehicles.

  • Bus Accidents

    Bus accidents, whether involving school buses, city transit buses, or private coach services, can have severe consequences due to the size and weight of these vehicles. The injuries resulting from such accidents can be substantial and often include not just passengers, but also pedestrians, bicyclists, and other motorists. The complex nature of bus accidents demands a thorough investigation to accurately determine liability, which could potentially involve multiple parties, including the bus driver, the bus management company, or the manufacturer of a faulty component.

  • Car Accidents

    Car accidents account for a significant portion of personal injury cases. These can range from minor fender benders to catastrophic collisions leading to life-altering injuries or fatalities. Many collisions are the result of driver negligence, which includes behaviors like distracted driving, ignoring traffic laws, DUI, and excessive speeding. Navigating the aftermath of a car accident can be overwhelming, especially when dealing with uncooperative insurance companies or at-fault drivers denying liability.

  • Construction Accidents

    The construction sector is fraught with potential hazards, making it one of the most dangerous industries for workers. Accidents on construction sites can result from a variety of factors, such as falls from great heights, equipment malfunction, electrocution, collapse of structures, and exposure to harmful substances, among others. These incidents can lead to serious health complications, long-term disability, or even death. While workers' compensation often provides some relief, it may not fully cover the expenses and losses incurred in these incidents. If a construction accident occurs due to the negligence of a third party, such as equipment manufacturers, contractors, or property owners, it may be possible to pursue a personal injury claim for additional compensation.

  • Motorcycle Accidents

    Motorcycles come with heightened risks due to their relative lack of protection when compared to enclosed vehicles. In fact, motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities, even when the collision might seem minor.

  • Pedestrian Accidents

    Pedestrian accidents can be particularly devastating due to the lack of protection against the force of a vehicle. These collisions frequently occur because drivers fail to yield at crosswalks.

  • Premises Liability

    Premises liability refers to accidents caused by a dangerous or deficient condition on someone else's property. These accidents can occur in various settings, such as homes, businesses, or public spaces and can be due to factors such as poor maintenance, inadequate security, or unsafe structures. Property owners and occupiers have a legal obligation to ensure their premises are reasonably safe for visitors. If their neglect of this duty leads to someone getting injured, the injured party may have a valid premises liability claim. Our Crown Point personal injury lawyers can fight for you if you were injured in a slip and fall incident or because of a dog bite, two common types of premises liability cases.

  • Rideshare Accidents

    Accidents involving Ubers or Lyfts present unique legal challenges given the complexities involving insurance policies and the status of the rideshare driver at the time of the collision. We can help you understand your rights and decipher the confusing intricacies of insurance policies to get you the compensation you are entitled to, no matter your role in the accident.

  • Truck Accidents

    The sheer might of commercial trucks can make accidents involving these vehicles especially disastrous. These incidents can occur due to various factors, such as driver fatigue, distracted driving, speeding, improper cargo load, or even mechanical failure. More than one party may be liable for your injuries, and we are dedicated to conducting exhaustive investigations, establishing fault, and advocating for the maximum compensation possible.

  • Work Injuries

    Work injuries can range from minor cuts and burns to serious injuries such as fractures, amputations, spinal injuries, or even fatalities. The causes of these accidents can be diverse, such as equipment malfunction, unsafe work conditions, insufficient training, or lack of safety protocols. Workers' compensation is typically the first recourse in the event of a workplace injury, providing coverage for medical expenses and a portion of lost wages. However, it will not cover all losses, especially if the injury results in long-term disability. If the injury is caused by the negligence of a third party, it may be possible to file a personal injury claim in addition to the workers' compensation claim.

  • Wrongful Death

    A wrongful death claim arises when an individual dies as a result of the negligence or wrongful act of another party. This can occur in various circumstances, from car accidents to defective products. Certain survivors of the deceased, such as spouses, children, or parents, could be entitled to compensation for their loss.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Indiana?

In the state of Indiana, the statute of limitations, or the time limit within which a personal injury claim must be filed, is generally two years. This means that you have a two-year window from the date of your accident or injury to initiate legal proceedings against the party responsible for your injury. If a claim is not filed within this period, you will likely lose the right to seek compensation.

While two years may seem like a long time, there are situations where you may have significantly less time to start the legal process. To avoid losing your right to seek damages, you should get in touch with our Crown Point personal injury attorneys as soon as you can after suffering injuries. 

What Types of Compensation Can I Recover in an Indiana Personal Injury Case?

When you suffer injuries because of the negligence of another party, you have the right to seek both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages refer to calculable expenses you incurred because of your injuries, while non-economic damages cover tougher-to-calculate losses that are more subjective in nature.

Our results-oriented team at Alvarez Law Offices will fight to get you full compensation for all losses, including:

  • Lost income
  • Lost earning potential
  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
