Assistance seeking compensation for your personal injuries

As discussed last week, though many people don't think the circumstances surrounding their injuries is important, in a legal context it determines the type of case one can pursue and the relevant procedural requirements. For example, getting injured in a car accident may be a personal injury claim while a workplace accident may lead to a workers' compensation claim.

How are personal injury and workers' compensation different?

When someone is hurt due to another person's negligence, the last thing on their mind might be holding the negligent party responsible. But as the medical bills pile up and wages are lost due to the injury, they might come to realize that compensation for the personal injury may be one way to gain financial stability. There are different legal options available to injured Indiana residents, depending on the injury.

How valuable is expert testimony in medical malpractice cases?

In order to succeed on a medical malpractice claim, a victim must prove four legal elements: the defendant owed a duty of care to the victim, the defendant was negligent while providing that care, the victim was injured, and the legal cause of the injury was the negligent care. These elements must be proved by a preponderance of evidence.

Hitting your head in an accident means you need to see a doctor

Getting into a motor vehicle crash is a stressful and even embarrassing experience. Even when it's clear that the other driver was at fault in the collision, you may worry about how many people will see you, especially on major highways or at busy intersections. Other drivers may heckle you while you wait for law enforcement, making you want to put the whole thing behind you. That might result in you overlooking a serious injury.

Family members lose a loved on in crash at start of the year

The New Year means a new start for many individuals, but unfortunately it can end up becoming a tragic one if a family member is lost in a car accident near the end of the year. With the emotional turmoil come frustration and a need to answer questions such as what happened and who is responsible for this crash. When it comes to light that the accident could have been completely avoided if the negligent driver had not gotten behind the driving wheel while impaired, family members often feel like they might never come to terms with their loss.
