How do I know if I have a case?
If you were injured through someone else’s fault, there is a likelihood that you could be entitled to compensation. Whether it was an individual who harmed you, such as a reckless driver, or it was because of a corporation’s failure to consider the safety of consumers, if you were injured due to the negligence of another, our team may be able to help.
What is negligence?
Negligence is defined as a failure to act with a reasonable standard of safety, either through action or inaction. For example, choosing to drive drunk is considered negligent behavior, as is failing to properly mark any hazards on a property that you own. If you believe that negligence played a part in your injury, share the details with an attorney to confirm.
Who can file a wrongful death case in Indiana?
In Indiana, a wrongful death claim must be filed by the individual who is representing the deceased’s estate. If compensation is given, it will be distributed among the deceased’s surviving family members, including children, dependents or a spouse. In the case that a minor was lost to wrongful death, the parents or guardians will most likely be the recipients of any damages rewarded.
