Injured In An Accident? Contact An Indiana Lawyer
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shared facts about falls, “Over 800,000 patients a year are hospitalized because of a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fractures. One out of five falls cause a serious injury such as broken bones or a head injury.” If you’ve been injured in an accident at a business or on private property, don’t sign anything!

Accidents happen unexpectedly, and damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and out of pocket expenses, could be calculated into the overall total compensation you or your loved one deserve after an accident.
Premises Liability Claims
Premise liability laws in the state of Indiana hold property owners legally responsible for those who visit their property. In general, the owner needs to ensure the safety of all visitors. If hazards occur on the property, then it’s the owner’s responsibility to fix it or if it’s unable to be fixed immediately, they need to warn visitors. If an owner fails to uphold the responsibility of safety for visitors on their property, they could be held liable for injuries caused by their negligent actions. One of the most common types of premises liability cases are slip and falls.

If you were in a public place or a private residence in Indiana and hurt yourself due to a slip and fall, you need to talk with an Indiana attorney. There are cases where people are hesitant to file a claim, because they assume their injuries are not serious. Sometimes injuries can take time to surface and pain might not arise until days or even weeks after the accident. There are time limits, so don’t delay, call now. No matter how minor the injuries may be, by waiting you could lose out on thousands of dollars in settlement money and, instead, be left with an amount that’s less than what you rightfully deserve.
