Personal Injury or Wrongful Death from another's negligence in Columbia City ?
Columbia City continues to grow dramatically, with population gains averaging about 20% each decade since 2000. With so many people coming to work, live, and visit our town, accidents are bound to happen. Fortunately, injured victims can often obtain necessary compensation to help them cover their financial and non-financial losses.
At Delventhal Law Office, we are proud to represent those who live in Columbia City or who were injured here. We have deep experience in personal injury law, car accidents, and slip and falls. Contact us to learn more about your rights to compensation.
Personal injuries are typically caused by negligent or careless behavior. Indiana law often imposes a duty to use reasonable care when shopping, working, or traveling. Many of our clients are injured by defective products, negligent service providers, or careless property owners.
Personal injuries often leave a person laid up at home or in the hospital for weeks. Consequently, they lose out on valuable income. Some of the more serious injuries a person can suffer include:
- Abrasions or lacerations
- Nerve damage
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries, including hemorrhage
- Back injuries
- Herniated discs
- Spinal cord damage
Any one of these injuries could cost thousands of dollars to treat. Serious accidents often leave our clients struggling with multiple injuries.
According to the 2018 traffic safety statistics, Whitley County saw 887 total accidents in the year, with five fatalities. Hundreds of people suffered serious injuries that required medical treatment. Young drivers were, by far, more likely to get involved in a wreck than more experienced motorists, though anyone could potentially be injured.
There are many causes of car accidents, but a negligent or reckless driver is often to blame. Drivers often cause accidents by:
- Speeding or driving too fast for conditions
- Failing to yield
- Passing illegally
- Driving while fatigued
- Texting while driving; and
- Driving impaired by drugs or alcohol
If a reckless or negligent driver is to blame, then our clients can seek compensation by making a claim on that driver’s insurance policy.

SLIP AND FALL ACCIDENTS
Property owners must keep their premises reasonably safe for those they invite onto the property, such as business customers. This duty often requires that owners or occupiers search for hidden defects or hazards, correct them promptly, or warn visitors of the hazard.
Other visitors are owed lesser duties. For example, a person might have been allowed to come on the property but not invited, or they might be trespassing.
Our clients have slipped and fallen because of many hazards, such as:
- Spilled liquids
- Waxed floors
- Loose tiles
- Poor lighting
We carefully examine the facts to determine whether the property owner or occupier discharged their duty of care, or whether their breach of that duty is to blame for our client’s injuries. Businesses and homeowners typically carry insurance, and we can assist in making a claim.
