Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
The time after an accident can be painful and frustrating. You may already be facing a growing stack of medical bills. This can be distressing, especially if you are currently out of work due to your injury. You may wonder how you are going to pay for everything and how life will ever return to normal.
The process of pursuing compensation after an accident can be difficult to navigate. The legal system can be daunting. This is where a personal injury attorney can be helpful.
An experienced attorney will be able to take over your case and handle everything for you. They can manage the investigation to determine who was at fault for your injury. There will be a significant amount of evidence that needs to be collected, preserved, and analyzed. This may include items such as police reports, eyewitness statements, medical records, doctor’s notes, and drug tests. Your lawyer will be able to take care of all of these for you.
When there are insurance companies involved, pursuing compensation can be complex. Insurance companies have entire legal teams dedicated to finding ways to avoid paying out money to people who have been injured. This is their full-time job. They are known for using misleading tactics to try to take advantage of individuals who are unfamiliar with how obtaining compensation after an accident works.
One way they may do this is by attempting to record conversations with you. They may ask questions that you respond to in a way that implies that you are at fault for the accident. It may seem reasonable to talk with an insurance adjuster on the phone. You may feel that you are not to blame and have nothing to hide. However, you should not do this until you have spoken with an attorney. They can handle all communication with insurance companies.
Insurance companies are also notorious for making settlement offers that are too low. They are hoping that you may not be aware of all the components of compensation to which you may be entitled. These may include:
- Medical bills
- Prescription medication
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
There are many factors that affect compensation. When you choose Custy Law Firm | Accident & Injury Lawyers to represent you, we will handle all negotiations in your case. We recognize a low-ball offer when we see it. Our attorneys will reject all unfair offers. You can trust that we will fight to pursue the maximum amount to which you may be entitled.
If I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident, Can I Still Receive Compensation?
The state of Indiana uses what is called modified comparative negligence. This applies to both personal injury claims as well as lawsuits. It means that you may still be able to pursue compensation if you are partly at fault.
However, the amount of compensation to which you are entitled will be reduced if you were partly to blame for the accident. Your compensation will be reduced by the same percentage that you are determined to be at fault. This means that if you had $100,000 in compensable losses and were found to be 40 percent at fault, then you could recover only $60,000 in compensation.
Note that the modified comparative negligence law in Indiana only applies if you are not more than 50 percent at fault. If the fault is mostly yours, meaning you are 51 percent or more at fault, you would not be entitled to receive any compensation.
