Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law in Indiana

In Indiana, personal injury law refers to the legal framework that controls cases where someone is hurt or suffers some damage to their personal property due to the behavior or negligence of another person or entity. This area of law covers various accidents, including car accidents, slip and fall incidents, instances of medical malpractice, and cases involving product liability. It also compensates the victim for the losses incurred because of the injury.

What Do You Need To Prove To Pursue an Indiana Personal Injury Case?

To pursue a personal injury claim in Indiana, the injured person, or plaintiff, has to prove that another person, or defendant, was negligent or engaged in wrongful conduct that resulted in injury. This means that to succeed, you must show that the defendant owed you a duty of care, breached that duty, that their conduct caused your injuries, and that you suffered losses as a result.

How Long Do You Have To File a Personal Injury Lawsuit? 

According to Indiana’s statute of limitations, you have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit in personal injury cases. When a governmental organization is at fault, you must first file a tort claim notice within six months of sustaining your injury. If you do not file your claim within this time, you forfeit your right to seek compensation in a court of law.

What Damages Can You Recover in a Personal Injury Case?

In Indiana, any harm from another person’s conduct may entitle you to monetary compensation for your injury, financial losses, and pain and suffering. In personal injury lawsuits, these losses are also called damages and can be compensatory, noneconomic, or punitive.

  • To make up for the victim’s financial losses, the court usually awards compensatory or economic damages. These are quantifiable or measurable costs, such as medical care, lost wages, property damage, and other expenses incurred because of your injury.  
  • Noneconomic damages are losses with a difficult-to-quantify monetary value, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Punitive damages are often granted in situations where the defendant was blatantly negligent. The primary goal of these damages is to punish and discourage others from acting in a similar manner.

The damages you receive depend on the type and severity of injuries you sustained, your financial losses, and any other harm you experienced due to the incident.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Alvarez Law Office Handles

The personal injury lawyers of Alvarez Law represent people injured as a result of another person’s wrongful or negligent conduct or failure to act, including in the following cases:

Auto Accidents

Inevitably, as Indianapolis’s population increases and more people drive on the roads, there will be more car accidents. In fact, there were 145 reported traffic fatalities in Indianapolis in 2022. Car accidents can occur for various reasons, including intoxicated drivers or manufacturing defects, and they can result in any number of injuries, such as broken bones and traumatic brain injuries. 

Truck Accidents

Due to the large size of trucks, truck accidents tend to be more damaging than other vehicle accidents. Complex federal laws further complicate them. Truck accidents are commonly caused by impaired driving, improper braking, excessive speed, overloaded cargo, improperly secured cargo, and poorly maintained trucks.

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents occur when someone trips, slips, or falls while on the property of another person or business because of a dangerous circumstance, such as wet floors, missing stair railings, or because the premises are not being properly maintained. They can occur anywhere from public parks to sports stadiums.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Nursing homes must meet a certain standard of care; if they fail to do so, they may be held liable for abuse or neglect. Evidence of bed sores, malnutrition, or physical mistreatment are all examples of nursing home neglect and abuse.

Workers’ Compensation

No matter the industry or occupation, workplace injuries are inevitable, and the majority of employers have to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance offers financial support as you heal from an occupational injury. However, some injuries call for extra care beyond what workers’ compensation covers.
