Scottsburg Personal Injury Lawyers – Providing Representation to Southern Indiana
Our personal injury practice is devoted to seeking full and fair compensation for persons injured due to the negligence or reckless actions of others. We provide a free initial consultation to all clients, and if we are to serve as your lawyers, we will do so on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no fee for our services unless we are able to obtain compensation for you.
Seeking a Full Recovery in Vehicle Accidents
All drivers are required to carry liability insurance that will provide coverage in the event of a crash. Normally, when an accident occurs, the insurance company for the driver alleged to be at fault will immediately begin taking aggressive action; including calling those who may be the victims as soon as possible following an accident. Their goal is to record victim statements to use against the victims later.
In a lawsuit in which severe injuries result, insurance companies for the driver at fault will typically take action to deny liability, prolong cases, attempt to shift blame onto others, including victims. Insurance companies rarely will pay what they owe at the outset of a case involving significant damages.
We encourage early representation so that we, rather than the insurance company, can direct the investigation of the accident. We thoroughly investigate accidents, depose those responsible, prove the extent of our client’s injuries through medical and other experts, and show insurance companies why they should pay our client fair compensation. If the insurance companies (on behalf of the defendants) fail to agree to a settlement for fair compensation, then we are well-prepared to go to trial on behalf of our client and present their case to a jury.
We also represent clients in non-vehicle injuries. As with our vehicle injury representation, our non-vehicle injury practice is devoted to seeking full and fair compensation for our clients.
Potential Compensation Available
The potential compensation available to injury victims may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical and other expenses incurred
- Past and future lost wages
- Compensation associated with impairment to engage in ordinary life activities
- Lost earning capacity
- Punitive damages, if a jury finds extreme negligence and indifference in a defendant’s conduct
Other categories of compensation may also be available. Once we learn the nature of your accident and injuries, we can discuss the types of compensation that may be available to you.
