How long do I have to file a claim?

When it comes to car accident claims, you have two years before the statute of limitations runs out in Indiana. While this may feel like a long time, it is best to act sooner rather than later. Gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses can be more difficult to do as time passes.

Who pays for my medical bills?

Initially, you will have to pay for your own medical bills. That being said, our firm will fight tirelessly to pursue the maximum amount of compensation. This means you can recover the amount you paid if we succeed. Our lead attorney, Donald McClellan, worked in insurance defense for two decades. He can help you understand what your options are and what the insurance company may go after.

What if I was partially responsible for the accident?

In Indiana, we are under modified comparative fault jurisdiction. This means that if you were partially responsible, you could receive less than a full settlement. Essentially, the insurance company can reduce your compensation by the percentage of the accident it decides you were at fault for.

Will I Have To Go To Trial?

Every personal injury case is different. Over the years, we have handled over 100 cases in front of a jury. Whether it is negotiating a settlement or fighting in front of a judge, we will always set clear expectations as to what path is the best way forward.
