Few other things turn life upside-down more quickly or more completely than a sudden and severe personal injury. As the victim struggles to recover, the family struggles to pay a mounting pile of bills. That financial stress makes physical recovery more difficult, creating a downward spiral. All the while, insurance adjusters call almost constantly demanding settlement.
The compassionate Indianapolis injury lawyers at Holland & Holland understand what you are going through. So, we work quickly to take care of medical bills, transportation requirements, and other immediate needs. Additionally, we build a case for fair compensation. This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.
A personal injury caused by someone else’s negligence can affect any person at any time. Some examples include:
In all these cases, the victim/plaintiff must establish negligence by a preponderance of the evidence (more likely than not). That is the lowest standard of proof in Indiana law.
A combination of hard work and skilled advocacy helps our Indianapolis injury lawyers quickly and fairly resolve negligence cases.
As mentioned, we work to build a case for compensation. That means collecting evidence on your behalf. Usually, this evidence consists of witness statements, the police accident report, the victim’s own testimony, and medical records.
Moreover, electronic evidence is often available. Examples include a vehicle’s Event Data Recorder, which is a lot like a commercial jet’s black box flight recorder, and video footage from security cameras.
Once this strong evidentiary foundation is in place, our Indianapolis injury lawyers add the walls and roof. The result is a strong and attractive house which withstands insurance company defenses, like contributory negligence, and is compelling for the jury.
Typically, the more evidence we present, the higher the damages are. There is usually a direct relationship between the amount of evidence in a case and the amount of damages jurors award.
Personal injury victims could be entitled to substantial compensation. For a free consultation with an experienced Indianapolis injury attorney, contact Holland & Holland. We do not charge upfront legal fees in these cases.
