Indianapolis Car Accident Attorney

Indianapolis Car Accident Attorney

If you were injured in an auto collision, you may be overwhelmed by the idea of seeking compensation from the responsible driver. Yet, if you do not take prompt, proper action in filing a claim, you put your rights in jeopardy. You can trust our Indianapolis car accident attorneys at Holland & Holland to tackle the complicated legal issues, while you take the time you need to recover from your injuries.

Proving Your Car Accident Claim

Motor vehicle crashes usually happen because a motorist is careless while driving. In legal terms, this conduct amounts to negligence. As a victim, you can recover compensation for your losses if you can prove:

  • The responsible driver had a duty to operate the vehicle safely, to avoid causing a risk of harm to others on the road;
  • That person failed to comply with this legal duty;
  • The breach of duty led to the accident in which you were injured; and,
  • You sustained losses because of your injuries.

Our Indianapolis car accident attorneys at Holland & Holland will gather evidence and create a legal strategy to firmly establish each of these essential elements. In most cases, we start by filing a claim and attempting to negotiate a settlement with the other driver’s insurance company. If we can not agree on an amount sufficient to compensate you for your losses, we will file a lawsuit in court. Indiana’s statute of limitations is two years, so it is crucial to contact our office right away about your circumstances.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents in Indianapolis

Though negligence is the root cause of most car collisions, there are specific actions that are behind many of these incidents. Examples include:

  • Speeding;
  • Texting or using the phone while driving;
  • Other forms of distracted driving;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Improper lane changes;
  • Driving while intoxicated; and,
  • Many more.

In some cases, the responsible driver will be ticketed for violations of Indiana’s rules of the road. However, you still have legal rights even if no citation was issued by the police.

Seek the Compensation You Deserve as an Injured Victim

The basis for your compensation in a car accident case is damages, measured by the losses you suffer because of your injuries. There are two categories of damages in Indianapolis car accident cases:

  • Economic damages, which are your tangible or out-of-pocket losses. Your medical bills and lost wages fall into this category.
  • Non-economic damages, including pain and suffering and emotional distress. Because these are not losses you can prove by showing receipts or documentation, there are challenges to establishing your right to recover non-economic damages. Our lawyers will fight to ensure you get the highest compensation you deserve under Indiana law.
