We all love the state of Indiana. It’s a great area that many Hoosiers call home. Most of us go through our daily lives without issue. We go to work, we spend time with friends and family, and so much more. Most Hoosiers go through their day-to-day activities without ever thinking that they will end up in an accident of any kind. But sadly, accidents can and do happen every day. Some are minor, while some cause extremely serious injuries. Some even tragically end in fatalities.

Personal injury law encompasses many different types of accidents
When most people think about personal injury accidents, they think of car crashes. Hensley Legal Group certainly does help Hoosiers that sustain injuries in car accidents, but our practice areas go well beyond that. A great personal injury lawyer will be able to help you recover damages from a wide variety of accidents.
According to the Indiana Department of Labor, around 73,800 Indiana workers suffered a nonfatal injury or illness in 2020. It’s a 10.98 percent decrease from the previous year, but it’s still a number that’s far too high. The Indiana Department of Labor also says that incidents counted towards this statistic must count as a recordable incident. In other words, it must be serious enough to make a report. Minor scrapes, bumps, and bruises are not counted here.
Just because a Hoosier isn’t killed in a work-related accident doesn’t mean that they’re going to be just fine. A nonfatal work-related accident could still result in very severe injuries. A worker could lose a limb, suffer paralysis, or any other number of life-altering injuries. Situations like this would certainly call for a qualified personal injury attorney.
What kind of compensation could a personal injury attorney win for me?
No two personal injury cases look exactly alike. However, an experienced personal injury attorney in the state of Indiana will rely on their experience and knowledge of the law to put together a case for you.
No matter where or how your personal injury occurred, it’s a good idea to get proper documentation of the incident. If you were involved in a car accident, call the police and ask them to make a report. If you are injured at work, make a report with your supervisor. Having proper documentation of the accident will go a long way proving your case to an insurance company looking to minimize your recovery.
Other examples of documentation include medical records, eyewitnesses, and more. Your personal injury lawyer will give you more details when it comes to the specifics of your case.
Your attorney will gather all the evidence to document your pain and suffering and maximize the financial compensation for your injuries. Compensation could include but is not limited to:
- Any existing medical treatment related to your accident
- Future medical care for treatment related to your accident
- Loss of wages if you are no longer able to work due to your injuries
- Loss of quality of life
- Pain and suffering
The details of your accident are truly unique, which is why you need to be fully transparent with your personal injury attorney. They will listen to what you have to say and come up with the best course of action when it comes to your case.
Going through an accident of any kind is hard. But the good news is that you don’t have to do it all alone.
