A personal injury can occur anywhere and anytime. Sometimes people suffer life altering injuries, disability, or death because another party failed to use reasonable care and was negligent. Indiana personal injury law involves those cases where a person has suffered either injury or death as the result of the negligence of another party involving any cause.
What Should You Do If You Have Been Injured?
If you have been injured because of the negligence of another, faulty equipment, or unforeseen happenings, it is prudent to seek medical attention. Often, the more prompt the medical attention, the better the outcome for the patient, the faster the recovery, and the better options for full healing and recovery. Once medical treatment has been secured, an injured party should promptly address their legal rights. It is important to become educated as to those rights through research or consultation and to meet with one or more personal injury attorneys to discuss potential options for recovery to make the most well-informed, holistic decisions possible.
While no two personal injury claims are the same, there are some common types of claims. The most common form of personal injury claims is related to highway and road accidents. Other types of claims include slip-and-fall injuries, industrial accidents, or fatal accidents, such as the collapse of a stage or stadium at a public venue.

Accidents involving automobiles are a major cause of preventable injury and death in this country. Often times negligence, recklessness, drunk driving or other irresponsible conduct causes preventable car crashes. With the advent of texting, mobile hand held devices, and cell phone usage during driving, safety is a core concern for many drivers.
Injuries caused by these type of accidents can be serious and life changing. Injuries can include neck and back pain, whiplash, burns, broken bones, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, and sometimes, death.
