Lafayette, Indiana sits on the banks of the Wabash River in Tippecanoe County. Named after Revolutionary War hero the Marquis de Lafayette, the county seat is home to Purdue University as well as large manufacturing plants like Subaru of Indiana, Caterpillar, and Wabash National. Lafayette is framed by I-65 and US 52 connecting Chicago to Indianapolis and US 231 to Rensselaer and eventually Kentucky to the south. Travelers can catch a baseball game at Loeb Stadium, walk the Wabash Heritage Trail, tour Purdue University’s campus or get dinner at one of the local restaurants in Lafayette’s historic downtown.

Lafayette Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer
Lafayette and Tippecanoe County have one of the highest rates of traffic accidents involving young drivers in the state of Indiana. Purdue has the second largest student body in Indiana. Combined with the influx of traffic from Chicago, heavy haulers from manufacturing plants, and farming vehicles from the surrounding countryside, the roads can become dangerous for inexperienced drivers.
When there are more drivers on the road, the chance of a traffic collision increases, especially if the other drivers were acting recklessly. Unsafe driver actions cause 65 percent of all Indiana traffic collisions. These reckless behaviors include:
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving, including using a cell phone while driving
If you were injured in a car accident because of the other driver’s reckless or negligent behavior, you may be entitled to compensation. Through a personal injury claim, you can recover monetary and non-economic damages.
Medical bills: The least your car accident settlement should do is cover your medical bills. This includes physical therapy.
Lost wages: You deserve to be compensated for the time you’ve had to take off work to heal. If you can no longer do the same work due to your injuries, your settlement can also cover loss of earning potential.
Pain and suffering: The emotional impact of a car accident is harder to quantify than a physical injury. Compensation for pain and suffering includes shock, anxiety, the adverse effects the accident will have on your mental health in the future, as well as physical pain from your injuries.
Automobile accident injury claims can be complex, especially if you are recovering from an injury.
