Car Accidents may be common, but they can be devastating
Indiana calls itself the “Crossroads of America” and is home to the world’s most famous car race, but Indiana’s roads and cars are the source of thousands of accidents every year that cause serious injuries and deaths. In 2012 alone, 731 people were killed on Indiana roads and highways.Common as car accidents may be, the physical, practical, and financial consequences of accidents can be devastatingBecause a large majority of auto accidents are caused by another driver’s carelessness or negligence, people injured in accidents not only fight to recover from their injuries, they also can find themselves fighting with insurance companies who often do everything they can to minimize the amount they have to pay out and who stand in the way of paying for medical bills and property damage. In the most heartbreaking cases, family members must file lawsuits to recover compensation for the death of a loved one.

I often get asked by clients who’ve been in serious car accidents what kind of compensation they might be able to recover in a lawsuit against the person responsible for causing their injuries.
WHY CHAPMAN INJURY LAWYERS?
Don’t Face Insurance Companies on Your Own
I am committed to fighting for the rights of those injured in car accidents. Having worked for insurance companies early in my career, I’ve seen first-hand the strategies and tactics they use to try to get people to settle for significantly less than they’re entitled to. Don’t face the prospect of dealing with insurance companies and large corporations alone. As you are struggling to put your life back together, I will work to ensure that you get the assistance and compensation you deserve. Let me fight for you while you concentrate on healing and moving forward.
After you’ve been in a car accident, it is extremely important to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Without experienced counsel at your side, you could end up compromising your legal rights. Under Indiana law, you must file a personal injury or wrongful case within two years of the date of the accident or within two years of discovering the injury. Failure to file a lawsuit within this timeframe may result in you losing your claim entirely.An experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney will also guide you through important steps to take that could be critical to the success of your claim down the road. You need to preserve proof of medical expenses, keep track of time off work, and assemble other evidence to support your claim. Memories fade and evidence at the scene of the accident can disappear quickly; working with a skilled lawyer as soon after the accident as possible will help you preserve evidence and make sure that you don’t take any actions that could harm your claim.
Every accident is different, and the injuries and consequences caused by an accident vary from cases to case. Because so many factors contribute to the damages awarded in car accident cases, or the amount obtained in settlement negotiations, it is impossible to predict how much a judge or jury will award or an insurance company will agree to pay.One thing that is for sure is that without a personal injury attorney who understands the law, knows insurance company tactics, and is prepared to take the fight to the courtroom, the amount that you’ll recover, if anything, will likely be significantly less.As a skilled car accident lawyer committed to protecting the rights of the injured, I will take every step necessary and available to get you the maximum possible compensation for your losses. When you retain me as your lawyer, you are retaining an ally who will be by your side and fighting for you every step of the way.
