Greenwood Personal Injury Attorneys 

Greenwood Personal Injury Attorneys

The railroad and a large cannery propelled Greenwood’s early growth and development. These same two industries also played a large role in the development of personal injury law. Trains moved large numbers of people over great distances, and these journeys were quite perilous. One of the world’s first negligence cases involved a beer bottle which allegedly contained a dead snail.

Today, the Greenwood personal injury attorneys at Holland & Holland build on these foundations. We uphold the legal and financial rights of car crashes and other accident victims. Additionally, we work to ensure that your family stays safe as you go about your daily lives. In all Greenwood personal injury claims, our attorneys use a simple and straightforward approach that has helped thousands of people obtain millions of dollars over the years.

Kinds of Personal Injuries in Greenwood

Essentially, negligence is a lack of ordinary care. We all make such mistakes from time to time, and we all must accept responsibility for our mistakes. That is the essence of a negligence case. The claims are not about “blaming” anyone. Rather, these claims help victims obtain the compensation they need. Some of the cases we handle at Holland & Holland include:

  • Car Crashes: Every year, vehicle collisions kill or seriously injure millions of Americans. For the most part, these incidents are not accidents. In fact, driver error causes over 90% of the vehicle collisions in Indiana.
  • Falls: Generally, property owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that the premises are reasonably safe. If the owner knew or should have known about a fall hazard, like a badly-cracked walkway or a loose handrail, the owner might be liable for damages.
  • Dog Bites: Animal attacks constitute about a third of the homeowners’ insurance claims in Indiana. The Hoosier State has a limited strict liability law, but for the most part, negligence principles govern dog bite claims.
  • Swimming Pool Injuries: Drownings and near-drownings make up most swimming pool injuries in Marion County. However, chemical and bacterial poisoning are issues as well. Once again, property owners usually have a responsibility to ensure their pools are safe.

Compensation in a personal injury claim usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. In certain cases, punitive damages may also be available.

The Claims Process

At Holland & Holland, your welfare is our immediate priority. So, we make sure victims get the medical help they need. We also take steps to secure vehicle repair or replacement. Usually, the providers charge no money upfront for these services.

If liability is reasonably clear, the insurance company has a duty to quickly resolve personal injury claims. However, there is almost always at least some question about liability. So, many insurance companies drag their feet.

To put pressure on the insurance company, and also to protect the victim’s rights, our Greenwood personal injury attorneys usually file legal paperwork in court. This filing usually triggers a mandatory mediation requirement.

A third-party mediator, who is usually an unaffiliated Greenwood personal injury lawyer, listens to brief opening arguments and then tries to work out a financial settlement. Assuming both parties negotiate in good faith, mediation is usually successful.
