Injured Victims Have Options

Victims who have suffered at the hands of a person who has breached their duty of care can be challenging to make sense of, which is why it’s imperative to seek a personal injury attorney that victims can depend upon. After an accident, the injuries victims experience can impact nearly all aspects of their lives. For some, these injuries can affect a person for a significant period, and recovering from these injuries will be a top priority. In addition to the recovery process, another way to truly move forward will be to consider taking legal action against the responsible party. Because of this, our team from Ward & Ward Law Firm should be one of the first calls made, as we can assist in strategically building the legal case and negotiating a favorable settlement for our clients. However, despite this, time is of the essence because the statute of limitations will be looming, making it imperative not to hesitate in moving forward with the claim. 


The Impact of Injuries on Victims


There are a multitude of ways that injuries may impact a victim following an accident. It’s important to understand that the consequences for victims may not only take place at the moment but could also for many years to come, if not lifelong. In addition to physical injuries, victims are also susceptible to experiencing psychological impairments as well. Although the thought of reaching out to an Indianapolis, IN personal injury attorney may be far from the victim’s mind, it should be made a priority for several reasons. When determining the value of a claim, our team of experienced attorneys can account for all aspects of how an accident has impacted victims. Consider the following types of damages that should be considered:


  • Medical Expenses (past, present, and future)
  • Physical Therapy
  • Treatment For Psychological Damages:
    • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    • Depression
    • Anxiety Disorders
  • Prescription Medications
  • Property Damage
  • Lost Wages


At times, the value of the claim and the effects of an accident that was at no fault of the victims can be challenging to decipher without assistance from a legal professional. Because of this, legal help is imperative to receiving the compensation victims are entitled to. 


Negotiating Personal Injury Settlements


Determining damages in personal injury cases requires a lawyer with experience in this practice area. For valid cases, once the value of a claim can be determined and evidence gathered, your attorney will draft the demand letter for the insurance company. Once the insurance company receives a demand letter, an insurance adjuster will be assigned to review and investigate the case. Typically, once a decision is made, the insurance company will deny the claim or make an initial offer. Often, the initial offer is much lower than the claim’s value. Because of this, representation from an attorney is one of the best decisions victims can make because they can review the offer and determine whether it’s in the victim’s best interest to accept or continue with the process of negotiations.


It can be hard to make sense of why such an accident occurred, but victims may experience a sense of peace when they have held the responsible party accountable through the legal process. Victims of these accidents will be left with damages, some of which may be lifelong, and our personal injury attorney in Indianapolis, IN can help seek justice, helping victims to move on. If you have suffered an accident, seeking help from Ward & Ward Law Firm can be a way to initiate the process and recover damages from the losses that you have experienced.
