Injured From A Slip Trip Or Fall?
Proprietors and property managers have a duty of care to keep their premises free obstructions or other potentially dangerous conditions that can result in injury to their customers. When they fail this duty of care they are liable for any injuries their customer suffers.
Each state has different laws regarding tort or personal injury litigation. They define the necessary conditions for pursuing a lawsuit against a negligent store owner, homeowner, or store manager. Generally speaking, these individuals carry liability insurance that pays out in the event that someone is injured on their property. Pursuing a claim against an insurance company is sometimes tricky.
Insurance companies are not enthusiastic about paying out claims. In fact, they have every incentive not to pay out your claim. Nonetheless, the law obligates them to do so.
While there is no shortage of personal injury attorneys in Indiana, not all personal injury attorneys are created equally. Delventhal Law Office will not simply settle your claim for a little more than the insurance company is offering, take a cut, and then be on to the next client. We will prepare your case to be trial ready. By doing so, we leverage the insurance company into a situation where they either agree to pay up or face a jury trial. Insurance companies do not like jury trials. They are costly and do not often go in their favor.

Indiana Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations defines the window of time in which an individual can file a lawsuit against a negligent party. In Indiana, that window is two years after the date of the accident. There are almost no conditions under which the court will allow a plaintiff to bring a lawsuit after two years have passed. Even when such conditions apply, it is still better to bring the lawsuit sooner rather than later.
