South Bend Car Accident Attorney

Protecting Drivers, Passengers, & Pedestrians

Drivers, passengers, and pedestrians who have been involved in a car accident may suffer serious injuries or even death. Survivors of a crash may have to deal with long-term complications, including being unable to work, experiencing physical and mental trauma, and paying costly medical bills.

If you or a loved one has suffered severe injuries or death due to the fault of another driver, you may be eligible to receive compensation. It is critical to take legal action as soon as possible, however. In the state of Indiana, victims have only two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Injuries from Car Accidents

Many accidents can result in serious, painful injuries. Often, victims of car accidents can take weeks or months to recover, while their life is forced to be put on hold. In more severe cases, patients may never fully recover from their injuries. Because car accidents can cause incredibly life-changing injuries, it is important to ensure that you have the funds to cover your medical bills and to help support you if your injury requires lifestyle changes or a lengthy recovery. Recover the damages you deserve with the help of an experienced auto accident lawyer.

Some common injuries that occur in automobile accidents include:

Comparative Fault

Indiana utilizes a system known as “modified comparative fault” to determine who is responsible in auto accidents. This system assigns a percentage of fault to each driver in an accident. Because car accidents are rarely black and white, comparative fault allows for each party to be liable for their contributions for an accident. For example, a driver who cuts off another vehicle and is rear-ended will likely be responsible for some of the fault. A driver who is driving the speed limit and drives through an intersection on a green light, only to be T-boned by a driver who ran a red light, may not be found to be at fault. Drivers who fail to change their driving habits to reflect poor driving or road conditions may also be assigned blame in an accident.

As a plaintiff in a claim, your liability is directly related to the amount of compensation you will be able to recover. If you are found to be 45% at fault for your accident, your settlement amount will be reduced by that much to reflect your responsibility in the accident. If your share of the fault is greater than the share of the other driver, you will be unable to claim damages. You attorney will strive to prove that the other party is at fault and holds a greater amount of responsibility for the accident.

We understand the role negligence plays in car accidents. We are committed to proving that the other party’s negligence caused you pain and suffering.

Indiana Insurance Requirements

Auto accidents have various causes, and Indiana drivers are required to carry a minimum amount of insurance for damage to property, bodily injury, and death. The insurance coverage of the driver at fault will play a substantial role in your case. These minimum insurance requirements are designed to ensure that drivers have enough coverage to handle damage and injuries you may cause in the event of an accident.
