How can a personal injury lawyer help me?

The injury attorneys at Craig, Kelley & Faultless, LLC offer free consultations for accident victims in Terre Haute. We will sit down with you and listen to your story. We want to know when the accident happened, where it happened, and how you were hurt. We’ll evaluate your case and will help you understand your legal options and the compensation you could be owed.

We’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the accident and will work quickly to secure vital evidence before it disappears, is cleaned up, or is destroyed.

If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement or tries to deny your claim, we won’t be afraid to take them to court to win you the compensation you deserve.

If you or someone you love suffered severe injuries in an accident like the ones listed above, don’t hesitate to contact a lawyer to discuss your legal options right away.

Can I file a lawsuit for personal injury in Terre Haute?

When someone else’s actions or inaction causes you undue harm or damages your property, you have the right to take legal action through a personal injury lawsuit. Despite what movies and TV shows lead you to believe, however, most injury victims will never see the inside of a courtroom. Instead, the majority of cases are resolved through settlements after negotiations between the victim’s attorney and the insurer for the responsible party.

If a satisfactory settlement cannot be reached, a victim may have to file a lawsuit to get the compensation they’re owed. If you file a lawsuit, you will have to demonstrate that the defendant acted negligently and that their negligence directly caused your injuries.

Keep in mind that you only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit, as the statute of limitations is usually two years in most personal injury cases. The statute of limitations is far shorter for claims against a city or county agency (180 days) or a state agency (270 days), so if you have a claim against one of those entities (a car accident caused by a defective roadway, for example) be sure to take immediate legal action to ensure that your case will be heard.

Do I have a legal right to compensation?

 A severe injury accident can forever alter your life in the blink of an eye. Not only can these injuries be unbearably painful, but treating them can be costly. Victims often find themselves in an impossible situation, unable to work but also watching the medical bills pile up beside them. No one should have to pay for the negligence of others. Fortunately, you could be owed significant compensation from the person responsible for the accident, including payment for:

  • Lost wages (both current and future)
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Medical bills (both current and future)
  • Replacement of damaged property
  • Pain, suffering, and post-traumatic stress

The surviving family members of those who are killed in tragic accidents could file a wrongful death lawsuit if the person responsible for the accident behaved negligently. Spouses, children, and other family members could be owed compensation including funeral and burial costs, reimbursement for final medical expenses, loss of support, loss of companionship, and other damages.
