When you think of a law firm, you may picture a big-city office in New York, Chicago, or maybe even Indianapolis. But at Hensley Legal Group, we know the only office that matters is the one that’s part of the community. That’s one reason why we opened an office in Muncie in the spring of 2018.

Muncie is not only representative of much of Central Indiana, but it’s also been upheld as a picture of American life for nearly a century. The famous Middletown studies of the 1920s chose none other than Muncie, Indiana, as their typical American town to learn more about who we are as a country.

Practicing law in a big city for big clients — that’s easy. But protecting the rights of everyday Americans who are injured or disabled through no fault of their own? That’s what’s important. With our office in Muncie, we’re able not only to serve the citizens of Muncie, but all Hoosiers across Central Indiana

Muncie Injury Lawyers at Your Service

You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. If you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, Hensley Legal Group is here to help get you back on your feet. Our personal injury lawyers help with claims in these areas and more:

A Risk Free Guarantee from Your Local Muncie Attorneys

One of people’s biggest concerns when hiring an attorney is that they can’t afford one.

Hensley Legal Group works on contingency to make sure every person, regardless of income, can afford legal representation.

What does it mean to work on contingency? Simply put, it means that if you don’t get paid, neither do we.

We don’t charge hourly fees. Instead, we work under the promise of receiving a percentage of your settlement or award. We can work on your case for months or even years, but if we don’t deliver a settlement or award for you, you won’t owe us a single penny.

Our fee amount differs depending on what kind of case you have with us. For example, Social Security even puts limits on how much our fee can be to help protect those who are disabled from being taken advantage of. We’ll go over our fee agreement with you before you choose to hire us to make sure we’re all on the same page. While we cannot promise that our fees will always be low, we can promise that they’ll always be fair.

Muncie Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer

Did you know that 65 percent of all Indiana traffic collisions are caused by unsafe driver behavior? These reckless behaviors include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • 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 damages like medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Car accident injury claims can be complex, especially if you are recovering from an injury. The personal injury attorneys at Hensley Legal Group have been helping car accident victims get compensation they deserve for over two decades. For a free conversation about your car accident claim, please call Hensley Legal Group at (765) 284-2085.

Muncie Social Security Disability Attorney

Social Security disability benefits (SSDI) provides much-needed benefits for people who are no longer able to work due to a physical or mental illness. Unfortunately, getting approved for Social Security disability benefits can be a long and frustrating process. Most participants are denied the first time they apply.

You don’t have to go through the application process alone. The Social Security disability lawyers of Hensley Legal Group can help you file an application, appeal the decision if you are denied, and present you in court if your claim needs to go before a judge.

If we don’t get you approved for benefits, our work for you is free, including the initial conversation about your disability claim. Call our Muncie law office at (765) 284-2085 or fill out the contact form on this page to schedule a consultation.

Muncie Semi-Truck Accident Lawyer

Semi-truck accidents often leave victims with devastating injuries and immense financial losses. The severity of truck accidents make them expensive to settle, and the trucking company will try hard to deny or discredit your claim.

When it comes to filing a truck accident claim, faster is always better. Who knows what evidence may disappear while you are waiting to contact an attorney?

If you were a victim of a semi-truck accident, a Muncie truck injury lawyer can help get you the settlement you deserve. The faster you get an injury attorney on your case, the stronger your claim can be.

Muncie Fall Injury Lawyer

Personal injury claims include slip and fall injuries. You may feel like it was your fault that you slipped, tripped, or fell, but if your fall injury was really the fault of the property owner, you shouldn’t have to pay for your medical bills.

Business owners may try to intimidate you or even obfuscate evidence proving their negligence. At Hensley Legal Group, our trial lawyers know how to stand their ground. For a free conversation about your slip and fall case, please call us at (765) 284-2085. You should never have to pay for someone else’s negligence.

I would highly recommend anyone to call and to give Hensley Legal Group a chance.

Muncie Medical Malpractice Lawyers

We trust our healthcare providers to take care of us when we are most vulnerable. Even if treatment doesn’t give the result we hope for, we should still be able to expect competent medical care.

Malpractice occurs when a patient is harmed by the negligence of their healthcare provider. Common examples of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthetic errors
  • Medication errors
  • Birth injuries, to the child or mother
  • Infection caused by unsanitary conditions

Medical malpractice claims are one of the most complicated areas that we handle at Hensley Legal Group. The burden of proof lies with the victim, and hospitals have expensive legal teams ready to fight malpractice lawsuits at the drop of the hat.

The state of Indiana has passed limits on the amount of compensation the victim can recover in a medical malpractice lawsuit. An experienced malpractice attorney can walk you through how to file a malpractice claim and what compensation you are entitled to.

We trust our healthcare providers to take care of us when we are most vulnerable. If you were a victim of medical malpractice, please call us today at (765) 284-2085 for a free case evaluation.

Muncie Wrongful Death Attorney

Losing a loved one is a painful life-altering event. If you have lost a loved one because of the recklessness or negligence of another person, a wrongful death claim may help you get justice.

A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit filed by a personal representative of the deceased, usually the next of kin. With a wrongful death, claim you can get compensation for:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Medical expenses accrued prior to death
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of financial support
  • Estimated lifetime income

No amount of money could never make up for your loss, but compensation can ease the financial burden. Let the personal injury attorneys at Hensley Legal Group work on your behalf. We will file the claim for you, represent you in court, and walk you through the legal process so you know what to expect. To discuss pursuing compensation for wrongful death, please don’t hesitate to call (765) 284-2085.

Muncie Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Nursing homes are supposed to be a kind of haven for our elderly loved ones, where they can live comfortably and safely while receiving medical care. Unfortunately, they are often vulnerable to acts of abuse or neglect from the very people we trust to take care of them.

Elder abuse is a crime. If you suspect your loved one isn’t receiving proper care or is being abused at a Muncie nursing home, you should report it right away. Signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Increase in depression or withdrawal from peers
  • Weight loss despite no reported change in exercise or diet
  • Not being bathed or showered regularly
  • Unexplained bruises or infections
  • Unexplained medication changes

Abusing nursing home residents is a heinous act. The personal injury attorneys at Hensley Legal Group are dedicated to fighting for your loved one’s rights. Call us at (765) 284-2085 for a free conversation about your nursing home claim.

Muncie Workers’ Compensation Attorney

If you were injured on the job, you should be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Most of the time, work comp claims are straightforward. But if your claim is denied, or if a third party is responsible for your injury, getting compensation may not be so easy.

Insurance companies want to pay as little as possible for injury claims, including injuries at work. They may deny your claim for a multitude of reasons, including:

Pre-existing conditions. Depending on your medical history, they may say that your injury already existed or worsened for reasons unrelated to the accident.

Failure to report. You must report a work injury to your supervisor or manager immediately. Not only does this ensure you won’t miss any deadlines, but it also gives them fewer opportunities to say your injury occurred outside of work.

Lack of medical evidence. Unless it is an emergency, you must go to the doctor that your employer approves through their insurance. Bills and medical records from your personal doctor will not be considered in your work comp claim. In Indiana, you cannot go to your own doctor unless the employer’s doctor agrees that they can provide you with treatment that they cannot.

Your claim may be denied even if it is legitimate. Don’t wait – contact the Muncie work injury lawyers at Hensley Legal Group for a free conversation about your work comp claim.

Muncie Dog Bite Attorney

Your dog might be your best friend, but that doesn’t mean they’re safe around everyone else. Dog bites can cause long-term disfigurement, disability, and are sometimes even fatal for children.

Indiana law allows victims of dog bites to recover medical bills, lost income, and non-economic damages from the dog bite owner within the bounds of Indiana’s “one bite” rule. If the victim can show evidence that the dog’s owner knew or should have known that their dog is likely to bite, the dog owner can be held liable.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries from a dog bite, call Hensley Legal Group in Muncie at (765) 284-2085 for a free consultation.
