Frequently Asked Questions
Provided below are a few frequently asked questions that you may have about your personal injury case.
Can I file a personal injury claim?
If you have sustained injury after an accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party whether they are an individual or a company.
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
In Indiana, you can file your injury claim up to two years after the accident occurred.
What if I was driving in the motorist’s blind spot?
It will not matter that you were in the motorist’s blind spot if the accident was caused by their distracted or impaired driving or lane switch.
Will I have to pay for my medical bills out of pocket?
Typically, medical specialists will wait until you have reached a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurer before you have to pay. You may have to pay copay fees, but you can include those in your claim.
How much is my case worth?
Compensation varies case by case, and to identify what you may be entitled to, you will want to discuss your case with a lawyer.
How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?
Personal injury lawyers typically do not collect payment unless you obtain a settlement, so there is no risk to get started. Rather than charge an upfront fee, you only pay attorney fees if and when we secure you compensation for your injuries.
