We Fight For Those Injured In A Car Accident In Auburn
Car accidents leave thousands of Indianans injured every year. These accidents happen in many different places, such as highways, residential areas, and parking lots. But all accidents have the potential to lead to crippling injuries and serious property damage.
At Delventhal Law Office, our Auburn car accident lawyers have handled many cases for injured victims. We understand our client’s legal rights and have the experience necessary to obtain maximum compensation for their injuries. Please contact us today to schedule a free, confidential consultation.
COLLISIONS CAUSE PAINFUL INJURIES
Even at relatively low speeds, car accidents can cause significant injuries to drivers and occupants. Many people walk away from a car accident believing that they are “okay” only to experience increasing pain and disability in the days ahead.
Our Auburn car accident lawyers have helped people suffering from:
- Broken bones
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Soft-tissue injuries
- Joint injuries
- Back injuries
- Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Nerve damage
- Facial injuries
- Psychological injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder
To improve your odds of making a full recovery, get to the hospital immediately following a wreck. The doctor will order tests and x-rays to uncover the full extent of your injuries.
OBTAINING COMPENSATION IS NOT ALWAYS EASY
Because Indiana is a “fault” state, motorists must prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident in order to receive compensation. Basically, this means that the other driver must have been careless or reckless in how they operated their motor vehicle. In our experience, most accidents stem from:
- Passing illegally
- Driving into a crowd or on the sidewalk
- Running a red light
- Failure to use a turn signal
- Failure to check a blind spot before backing up or changing lanes
- Distracted driving
- Failure to yield
- Driver impairment, such as intoxication or drug use
- Driver fatigue
Indiana also recognizes the concept of comparative negligence. Under Indiana Code § 34-51-2-6, a person cannot bring a lawsuit if their own fault is greater than the combined fault of the defendants. Our client’s liability will also reduce their compensation by a proportionate amount. So a client who is 40% to blame will receive 40% less.
Fault is hotly contested in many accident cases. Insurance companies aggressively defend their clients, and any victim who does not have a lawyer’s assistance could walk away from a crash with zero compensation.

FAIR COMPENSATION FOR SERIOUS INJURIES
Our Auburn car accident lawyers know how to negotiate a fair settlement that should cover your losses. We begin every case by carefully reviewing how much the accident has cost you. Our lawyers can seek money damages for all necessary medical care, including the cost of surgery and rehabilitation. Our clients can also seek damages for lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and property damage.
Indiana law also allows victims to receive money for harder-to-quantify losses such as pain, suffering, emotional distress, and disfigurement. Someone with a bad burn, for example, could suffer intense depression and anxiety. They might also withdraw from society if the burn is visible. These intangible losses can qualify for a considerable sum of money and might comprise the bulk of any settlement.
