Personal Injury

If you have suffered an injury, please call us to schedule a free consultation.  It is important to speak with licensed attorney as soon as possible, so that you do not jeopardize your potential case.

Do not wait until an insurance company makes an offer to hire an attorney.  It is best to have a lawyer represent you from the beginning, so that the adjuster is made aware of your case’s legal strengths.  There may be information that your lawyer is able to present that will increase the insurance company’s valuation of your case.  Indiana law has strict deadlines in which to file lawsuits; do not wait, or you may lose your chance to recover.
