How Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help You

A personal injury claim may be based on any type of serious injury accident caused by the negligence or misconduct of others. A large portion of the personal injury cases we handle in Greenfield and Hancock County involve people injured in motor vehicle accidents. There are more than 1,500 car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents a year in Hancock County[CN1] , with a majority occurring in either Greenfield or rural areas of the county.

We also assist individuals and families from the Greenfield area and all of Indiana with premises liability cases, which include slip-and-fall accidents and dog bite cases, and with other accident cases, including wrongful death claims. Serious injuries to children while at school, in daycare or elsewhere outside the home may also require a personal injury claim to ensure justice.

As soon as we accept your case, our attorneys will move to gather and preserve evidence. Valuable evidence, such as videotape from security cameras near the accident scene or a trucking company’s driver logbooks and truck maintenance records, can be lost if not promptly secured. If contacted immediately after an accident, we may be able to obtain evidence from the accident scene, such as damage to a walkway or a pothole in a parking lot that caused a slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident.

At the same time, we will work with you to obtain medical records and to calculate your costs and losses since the accident. In cases of long-lasting injuries or permanent disability, we also calculate your future costs and losses from not being able to return to work. From your quantifiable economic losses and your descriptions of noneconomic, personal losses (i.e., pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, etc.) we determine what a proper settlement entails.

After our legal team has investigated the accident and your injuries and has identified individuals or organizations who are liable (legally responsible), we send demand letters to their insurance companies. We follow up on our demands with aggressive negotiations toward a settlement that reflects the full extent of your losses.

Our trial attorneys have a track record that makes insurance companies more likely to settle than go to trial. But when insurance companies will not do the right thing, our attorneys are prepared to seek justice in the Hancock County courts.

The attorneys at Craig, Kelley & Faultless, LLC have the knowledge, skill, experience and resources required to prepare and aggressively pursue a solid personal injury or wrongful death claim for you. We can recover what you deserve from insurance companies, and we take pride in doing it.

What Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Claim?

Each personal injury lawsuit is unique. In some car accidents and other claims, multiple parties share fault. If someone else’s carelessness, negligence or misconduct caused your injury, even if you were partly at fault, you may be entitled under Indiana law to seek a financial recovery.

The compensation that may be sought depends on the details of the accident, the extent of your injuries and the amounts of insurance available to pay claims.

Generally speaking, the types of compensation that you may seek in a personal injury claim includes payment for:

  • Medical expenses, including emergency care, doctor and hospitals bills, prescription medication, physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Future medical costs related to the injury, such as for delayed surgical procedures
  • Cost of assistive devices (e.g., wheelchair, hospital bed), home renovations, or personal assistance required by disabling injury (temporary or permanent).
  • Lost income from missed work, including any lost bonuses and benefits
  • Diminished future earnings and earning potential resulting from your injury
  • Cost to repair or replace your damaged vehicle
  • Lost value of a repaired vehicle
  • Damage to or loss of other personal or real property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced enjoyment of life
  • Funeral expenses and loss of companionship in a wrongful death claim.

We recognize that no amount of money will restore you to health after a debilitating injury or replace your lost loved one after a fatal accident. However, neither you nor your family should suffer financial hardship on top of grief for a life lost. Indiana law is on your side if someone else’s negligence caused your injury or a loved one’s death.

An experienced and compassionate personal injury attorney at Craig, Kelley & Faultless, LLC can review the specifics of your accident in a free consultation and discuss whether pursuing a personal injury claim is an appropriate step for your situation.
