Car crashes, falls, and other such incidents kill or seriously injure millions of Americans every year. These losses often send victims into physical, emotional, and financial tailspins. Many people spend months in the hospital and in physical rehabilitation centers recovering from their physical injuries. The emotional injuries, such as emotional distress, may take much longer to heal. This combination of missed work and high bills usually create significant financial distress, as well.

Large insurance companies and their posse of lawyers do not intimidate our seasoned professionals. We focus on the basics, like solid evidence and a sound legal theory. All the way, we keep the lines of communication open, so our clients are never in the dark.
Personal injury accidents can happen to any person at any time. When they happen, life will never be the same again. Some common personal injuries include:
Most of these incidents are not “accidents.” They were not inevitable instances that could not have been prevented. Instead, negligence, or a lack of ordinary care, causes most of these injuries. If that is the case, substantial compensation may be available. This compensation normally includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering. Additional punitive damages may also be available, in some extreme cases.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help accident victims in both the short and long term.
In the immediate wake of a personal injury, victims need immediate help with medical bills. It is important to see a doctor right away. Medically, many injuries get much worse without prompt treatment. Legally, the insurance company may later claim that the victim was not hurt badly if there is no prompt doctor visit. But many health insurance companies do not pay for injury-related claims, and most people do not have the money to see a doctor.
Attorneys send letters of protection to medical professionals. Because of these letters, victims get the treatment they need at no upfront cost. Furthermore, an attorney can negotiate with a provider to reduce the fee. So, the victim keeps more of the settlement money.
Long-term legal help comes in the form of trial preparation and effective negotiation. Although most injury claims settle out of court, an attorney must diligently prepare as if the case will go to trial. That is the best way to ensure maximum compensation.
Accidents victims need substantial legal help to get the compensation they deserve. For a free consultation with an experienced personal injury lawyer in Indianapolis, contact Holland & Holland. We routinely handle matters in Marion County and nearby jurisdictions.
