After you have suffered a serious accident, your life is filled with questions. How long will you be unable to work? How is your car going to be fixed? Who is responsible for paying your medical bills? And above all, what are you going to do if your life is permanently altered by the effects of your injury?
At times like these, it is vital that victims have as much information as possible. Unfortunately, many professionals will offer vague answers or disappear when their clients need them most, leaving them to fight difficult battles while their minds and bodies are still recovering.

We fight aggressively on your behalf, and reach out to every one of our clients so they are never left guessing what the future will hold.

We help injury victims in northwest Indiana recover from a variety of accidents, including:
Vehicle Accidents. Under Indiana law, the person who is found to be at fault for a car accident is responsible for paying damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies may base their decisions on who was at fault from the police report of the accident. If the police report places any of the blame for the crash on you, you could be liable for paying some or all of the damages, including repairs to your car, your medical bills, or loss of income. Our attorneys can investigate the circumstances of your car accident, pedestrian accidents, bicycle collision, motorcycle accidents, or DUI crash to determine who is liable for the costs. In addition, we investigate truck accidents as soon as possible to avoid destruction of evidence that points to driver fault in semi, 18 wheeler, dump truck, delivery truck, municipal vehicle, postal truck, and other heavy vehicle crashes.
Slip and Fall. A fall does not have to happen at a great height to cause serious or life-threatening injuries. Victims may suffer trip and fall injuries in their own apartments or houses, someone else's house, a city sidewalk, a parking lot, or in grocery stores and shopping centers, any of which can cause soft tissue injuries or broken bones. People who slip on snow, ice, or wet floors can suffer traumatic brain injury if they hit their heads on hard surfaces, resulting in permanent disability. Our attorneys can help you prove that the property owner was negligent in causing your fall, getting you the compensation you need to live with the effects of your injury.
Dog Bites. Under Indiana law, anyone who is bitten by a dog has the legal right to recover damages from the owner of the dog. In addition, some Indiana cities have adopted laws requiring that owners of certain dog breeds purchase liability insurance, require these dogs to be walked on leashes, and require dogs to be kept in fenced yards or tethers while outside. We can help you seek compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering after a dog bite or attack.
