Lowell Injury Lawyers

Lowell Injury Lawyers

When a negligent or malicious party causes you serious injury, you can recover damages related to your medical expenses, missed time from work, and pain and suffering. The Lowell injury lawyers at Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, P.C. will fight relentlessly to secure you a fair settlement or jury verdict for your injuries. If you have been injured, you are not alone. Our Indiana personal injury attorneys are here to help.

Indiana Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

In Indiana, the statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits is two years. That means you have two years from the date of the accident to file your claim against the at-fault party. If those two years elapse, it is unlikely that you will ever be able to recover damages at all. There are situations in which the statute of limitations can be “tolled” to a certain date. If the injured party is under 18 years old or the injured party did not discover the injury until years later, the statute of limitations can be reset until either his or her 18th birthday or the date when the injury was discovered. In either case, your best bet is to bring the lawsuit as soon as possible after the date of the precipitating cause.

Indiana’s Accident Liability Laws

Indiana follows a comparative fault rule when it comes to personal injury cases. This means that if you are partially responsible for the accident or your injuries, your compensation may be reduced proportionally. However, as long as you are less than 51% at fault, you can still pursue a claim and seek damages.

Work-Related Injuries

Many injured workers find haggling with their employer’s insurance company frustrating. Insurance companies may stall by claiming you have not provided them with sufficient information or balk at claims involving cumulative injuries suffered over an extended period of time. Here, a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that you get the money you are owed under the law and take over the exhausting process of dealing with the insurance company. If you are injured by a third-party contractor or a defective piece of machinery, you can sue those third parties, as well.
