Car accidents occur across the country every single day. Hoosiers are very caring and helpful people, but sometimes end up in accidents themselves. Since Indianapolis, Indiana is the most populous city in the state, collisions are unfortunately commonplace.
In the aftermath of an accident, you might not know where to turn. In some cases, people involved in a crash can end up with debilitating injuries and pain. These injuries require doctor visits, which can result in pretty hefty medical bills.
Many Hoosiers are not prepared to handle sky-high, unexpected medical bills. And if you weren’t to blame for the accident, you shouldn’t have to pay at all. That’s exactly why it pays to have a personal injury lawyer to help in situations like this.
Car accidents can be absolutely catastrophic for everyone involved. If you need someone you can count on to help in your time of need, contact the Indianapolis car accident lawyers at Hensley Legal Group.

Your car accident lawyer will go to bat for you in your time of need
You might have heard about the benefits of hiring a car accident lawyer after your accident. But do you have any idea what they can do for you?
A personal injury attorney has many responsibilities and duties when they agree to take on your case. These duties include but are not limited to:
- Gathering the documentation from your accident, including police reports and medical records
- Calculating the value of your claim
- Determining which party was to blame for the accident
- Negotiating with the insurance company
- Representing you in negotiations, even if the case goes to court
Most personal injury cases are settled well before the case ever has to go to court. In fact, your Indianapolis car accident lawyer will do everything in their power to prevent that from happening.
Car crash statistics have been rising over the past few years
Car accidents can definitely range in severity. Some accidents just involve bumps and scrapes while others can be incredibly devastating and result in massive casualties.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 9,560 people died in car accidents across the country during the first three months of 2022 alone. WTHR in Indianapolis reports that as of August 2022, 21 pedestrians were hit and killed by cars in that year. This number is alarmingly high, considering that by August 2021, 11 people were hit and killed by cars that year.
According to the NHTSA, car crash rates had consistently fallen for three years in a row leading up to 2020. After the pandemic happened, car accidents sadly seemed to creep upwards in the years following.
Although we can’t prevent every crash from happening, it’s entirely possible to reduce the risk of an accident by practicing safe driving habits. You should never get behind the wheel of a car after drinking alcohol or taking drugs. Be sure to keep both hands on the wheel and give the road your entire attention – this includes texting and driving.
Indiana actually has a “Hands Free” law which prohibits drivers from operating mobile devices with their hands while driving. The goal is to reduce the risk of an accident occurring and to keep everyone on the roads safe. Drivers may still use mobile devices if they can activate it via Bluetooth, voice commands, or any other way that does not require their hands.
