Hiring an Experienced Car Accident Lawyer

For an American teen, there is no freedom like getting your driver’s license. But that newfound freedom can be wrecked by on oncoming vehicle. You should contact the leading car accident lawyers in Indiana if you need help after a car crash.

As of 2009, there were 254,212,610 registered passenger vehicles in the United States and 93 motor vehicle fatalities on an average day. Statistically, you are much more likely to be in an accident within 25 miles of your home, where you do most of your driving. One of the most important things you can do to prevent serious injury in a car crash is also the easiest ― wear a seatbelt. It is clear by now that seatbelts can save your life and prevent you from being thrown out of the vehicle. In one recent accident in Gary, a woman walked away unhurt after her car struck a concrete barrier, flipped over three times, and struck the barrier again. Her car was totaled but, thanks to the seatbelt, she sustained no injuries.

A car accident can be traumatic both physically and emotionally. If you are the victim of a distracted or drunk driver, or even suffered an injury due to a flaw in the roadway, you need to contact an Indiana car accidents attorney. It’s bad enough to be the victim in an accident, but it’s even worse if the insurance companies are allowed to take advantage of you too.

Your initial legal consultation is free and we handle personal injury cases on a contingency-fee basis — meaning you do not pay attorney fees unless compensation is recovered for your losses through a verdict or settlement.
