Why should I hire an Indiana car accident attorney?
No one wants to believe that someone would actively root against them in the event of a car accident. However, insurance companies are not on your side. Even if another driver hit you, their insurance company will do everything in their power to avoid paying out a claim.
This can make navigating a difficult situation even worse. Fortunately for you, this is where hiring a car accident lawyer can really help. They will speak to the insurance companies on your behalf so you don’t have to deal with them.
You also might have significant medical bills that will pile up as you pursue treatment for your personal injury case. Your attorney can fight for your right to recover compensation and make sure you get the best outcome possible for your case.
At the end of the day, pursuing a car accident case can be wildly difficult. But you don’t have to go through it all alone. Trust the lawyers at Hensley Legal Group to treat your case with care and get you the compensation you need.
What can a personal injury lawyer do for me after my car accident?
It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much experience you have on the road. Car accidents can happen to you at any point.
In 2019, there were 751 fatal car accidents in the state of Indiana. It’s always unfortunate when someone loses their life in an accident, but staying vigilant and practicing defensive driving habits can help reduce this number.
But when another driver’s negligent driving habits caused your accident, you shouldn’t have to be responsible for the bills that follow. It’s imperative to have someone on your side that will go to bat for you and ensure you have the compensation you deserve.
When you work with a car accident lawyer from Hensley Legal Group, they can help you recover:
- Existing and future medical expenses
- Lost wages from missing work due to your injuries
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
This is not an exhaustive list, so it’s possible that your personal injury attorney can help you receive compensation that doesn’t necessarily fit under that list. Ultimately, each car accident case is different. Trust an attorney from Hensley Legal Group to help you better understand your case and what you might be entitled to claim.
What kind of car accidents can Hensley Legal Group handle?
Since our attorneys understand how unique each car accident case can be, we strive to help victims involved in many different types of accident cases.
We frequently assist Hoosiers that have been injured in the following types of car accidents:
- Passenger vehicle collisions
- Big truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- And many more
Because Indiana has many major highways and interstates, we frequently see cases involving big trucks. Commercial vehicles like semi trucks are incredibly large and weigh much more than a passenger vehicle. Many trucks can weigh more than 10,000 pounds. Due to their size and weight, these kinds of accidents often result in severe injuries or even death.
According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, commercial vehicles were involved in 16,910 accidents in 2017. Unfortunately, these accidents caused 152 fatalities and 3,297 injuries.
Even if you’re in a hurry, it’s important to give large commercial vehicles plenty of space on the road. Semi Trucks often have pretty significant blind spots and it’s not easy for the driver to keep an eye on cars that zip in and out of them.
At the end of the day, defensive driving techniques and sharing the road with other drivers will go a long way when it comes to preventing an accident. Life is just too precious to gamble with.
The attorneys at Hensley Legal Group understand what you’re going through at the moment. Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be a very stressful, confusing time. Fortunately for you, there is help available.
When our lawyers agree to take on your case, they vow to treat you the same way they would want to be treated if they were in your shoes. In the aftermath of your accident, you deserve compassion from a team that really cares about your case.
