Being involved in any kind of accident can stir up a wide range of emotions. You’ll likely feel scared and overwhelmed as you navigate your options after the accident happens. On top of that, you might also experience intense physical pain, depending on the accident and your type of injuries.
In many cases, you might choose to file a personal injury claim to recover financial compensation for your troubles. Although no amount of money can make the accident go away, it can cover expensive medical bills, property damage, and so much more.
Although you are not required by law to hire a personal injury lawyer to help with your case, it can absolutely make a world of difference. The legal process is long and complicated. Working with the right legal team gives you peace of mind as you navigate through this complicated process.
Speaking with an Indiana personal injury lawyer can greatly improve your chances of winning your case. Ready to get in touch? Contact us at 317-472-3333, fill out our online contact form, or chat with us online.

What kind of personal injury cases are there?
One of the great things about personal injury law is that it encompasses many different types of accidents, offering more services to people who need them.
Here at Hensley Legal Group, we proudly extend our services to Hoosiers from many different walks of life. Some of the most common types of accidents we see include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Dog bites
- Workers’ compensation
Of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list. If you were injured and another party was responsible for the accident, you may certainly have a personal injury case on your hands.
When in doubt, it’s always okay to ask. At Hensley Legal Group, we’re always happy to answer questions and help you make the right decisions as you recover from your accident.
What kind of compensation am I eligible to receive?
As in any personal injury case, the type of compensation you receive, and the dollar amount is largely dependent on your case. The judge will take the factors of the case into consideration before they make a decision.
When you choose to pursue a personal injury claim, keep in mind that there are no guarantees that you will win your case. Trusting an experienced Indiana personal injury lawyer can definitely help though.
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you could be eligible to recover damages for:
- All existing and future medical bills as they pertain to your accident
- Physical therapy
- Lost wages if you have to take time off from work to recover
- Loss of potential earning power if you cannot return to work at all
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
Again, this is not a comprehensive list. Consulting with an experienced attorney can help you get a better idea of the compensation available to you.
What else can Hensley Legal Group offer?
Although we offer personal injury legal services, we can also help our clients apply for Social Security Disability benefits. There are many Hoosiers who sustain serious injuries in accidents and go on to need SSDI benefits. However, applying for benefits and going through the appeals process can be quite exhausting.
Luckily, our lawyers can also help in this regard.
Sadly, the vast majority of Social Security Disability benefits applications are denied on the first try. If this happens to you, try not to be discouraged. You can absolutely go through the appeals process and get the Social Security Administration to change their mind.
When applying for disability benefits, it’s also important to note that applications and appeals have strict deadlines. If you miss them, you’ll have to completely start over.
Our SSDI lawyers are well aware of the deadlines and will help you make sure everything is turned in completely and on time.
