Although many car accidents are minor and just involve bumps and scrapes, others can be absolutely catastrophic. Large scale car accidents can often result in serious injuries or even deaths. In recent years, Indiana has tried to cut down on the number of car crashes by passing new rules such as the “Hands Free Law” which prohibits drivers from operating mobile devices with their hands.
New laws and safer driving practices will certainly cut down on the number of car accidents, but will never completely prevent them from happening.
A car accident in any capacity can be absolutely devastating for Hoosier families. Many don’t have enough emergency savings to cover car repairs, let alone sky-high medical bills.

Car accident deaths have been on the rise in recent years
As of 2021, approximately 882,000 Hoosiers called Indianapolis home. The Circle City continues to grow and thrive as time goes on. But as the population increases, so will the risk of car accidents.
Statistics indicate that deadly car accidents are on the rise across the country. And that’s absolutely tragic news for Americans, as well as Hoosiers.
According to information released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 42,915 people were killed in car crashes nationwide in 2021 alone. Sadly, that was also a 10.5 percent increase from the number of 2020 fatalities.
We believe that it’s an absolute tragedy when even one person is killed in a car accident. While nothing can erase the pain and heartbreak of losing a loved one this way, pursuing legal action can hold the responsible party or parties accountable.
When you hire an Indianapolis car accident lawyer, you might be able to pursue a wrongful death claim after your loved one perished in an accident.
Why is it worth working with a lawyer to pursue a wrongful death claim?
Losing a loved one unexpectedly in a car accident is tragic and heartbreaking. But the situation may feel even more painful when the surviving loved ones are stuck with the potential medical bills and funeral expenses.
When you choose to pursue a wrongful death claim against the other party or parties involved in the accident, they could be found financially responsible for these expenses. Funerals and burial costs certainly aren’t cheap. There are different price ranges for different types of services, but many Hoosier families end up spending thousands of dollars on funerals and burials.
The right car accident lawyer can advise you about the details of your personal case. You could be eligible to receive the following types of financial compensation:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Medical bills if your loved one was in the hospital
- Loss of income since your loved one is no longer around to help to earn an income
- Pain and suffering associated with your loved one’s death
- Loss of companionship
It’s important to keep in mind that each car accident case is different and will have unique circumstances. It’s your car accident lawyer’s job to explain the situation to you and let you know exactly what types of damages you are eligible to recover.
Money certainly won’t erase the accident from happening, but at the very least, the responsible parties might be required to help cover the costs associated with the crash.
