Munster Car Accident Lawyer

Munster Car Accident Lawyer

When you get behind the wheel of your car on any given morning, the last thing that you expect is that your day will come to a halt when you’re involved in a car crash. In fact, even if you are driving as safely as normal, are buckled, and have done everything you can to prevent a crash, the actions of another negligent driver could have tragic consequences for you. If you are involved in an accident, our Munster car accident lawyers at the law offices of Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, P.C. are here for you.

Who’s at Fault in a Car Accident?

When a car accident occurs, one of the most important things that a victim needs to do is establish fault. This is because Indiana is an at-fault car insurance state, which means that unless an injured party can prove that the other party caused the crash, they will be unable to recover compensation.

Fault, and liability, in a car accident is based on negligence. Negligence is the failure to exercise the duty of care that is owed in a given situation, and may include:

  • Drunk driving;
  • Speeding;
  • Driving aggressively
  • Driving while impaired;
  • Making an illegal turn;
  • Failing to signal;
  • Texting while driving;
  • Driving distracted; and
  • More.
Proving fault typically requires a thorough investigation – our attorneys are highly skilled at car accident investigations, and can manage this part of the process for you.

What Happens If My Claim Is Denied?

Even if you are genuinely injured and are sure that the other party was at fault for your crash, an insurance adjuster may not offer you the settlement that you deserve. In fact, most first settlement offers are well below what a claimant’s case is worth – the insurance adjuster does this in hopes that an injured party will accept the settlement just to get the process over with, and the insurance company will save money as a result.

However, you have the right to say no to a first settlement offer, and should when it doesn’t meet your needs. Our attorneys can aggressively negotiate on your behalf to help you reach a settlement that actually addresses the damages you have suffered. If a settlement cannot be reached, we can file a lawsuit and take your case to court.
