Fighting For Your Rights After A Serious Injury
A serious injury affects all areas of your life: your job, your health, your hobbies and your personal relationships. It adds stress and financial costs. When injuries linger and do not heal properly, you could face permanent disabilities and other complications.
Here at Theisen Hubley Law in Fort Wayne, Indiana, our lawyers work hard to take that stress out of your life. We handle everything. We try to seek fair compensation and, if the other side is unreasonable, we do not hesitate to take cases to trial. We are aggressive, experienced trial lawyers who can stand up for your rights.
The Cases We Take
Our personal injury attorneys take all manner of injury and wrongful death cases, including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Injuries to passengers
- Dog bites
- Injuries caused by dangerous property conditions
- Product liability claims
- Work-related injuries
Working with us costs nothing upfront if you suffered an injury. We work on contingency fees. This means that we charge a fee only if and when we obtain a recovery through a trial or a settlement. In other words, no fees unless we get you a recovery.
There are two main things that set our firm apart. First, we have excellent trial skills. This puts us in a stronger negotiating position with the insurance company. They know we will go to trial if we have to.
On top of that, we used to handle personal injury claims from the other side: representing businesses and insurance companies. As a result, we know how insurance companies defend these cases. Now, we exclusively handle the plaintiff side, but our experience tells us just what to expect and what tactics to use.
Should I trust the insurance company to take care of me?
No, the insurance company is not in business to take care of people. They exist to make a profit, and to do that, they need to pay out as little compensation as possible.
As former insurance defense lawyers, we know what the insurance company is going to do: try to deny or undervalue your claim. With teams of lawyers and adjusters, as well as considerable resources, they can also drag out the process until people just give up.
We know how to combat these issues and make the insurance company treat you fairly.
What kind of expenses am I facing after a serious injury?
There are many financial losses that occur when someone is injured, including:
- Lost wages
- Loss of benefits
- Medical expenses (surgery, hospital stays, physical therapy, medication, doctor’s visits, counseling)
- Loss of the injured person’s contributions to the household, such as child care
- Property damage in car accident cases
There is also the potential loss of all future income and benefits in very serious cases or wrongful death.
This is why you need a personal injury attorney to recover compensation for you and your family. Your future well-being may depend on it. We have the experience and skill to build a strong case for the full amount of compensation you need, today and in the future. You can rely on us to thoroughly calculate the compensation you need for your financial losses. In addition, we will seek damages for pain and suffering as applicable.
How soon should I contact a lawyer?
You should contact a lawyer immediately, when possible. While the statute in Indiana is two years from the date of the accident or injury, you do not want to wait that long. Crucial evidence may disappear in this time or witness’s memories may fade. It is best if we can get started right away on investigating the accident, determining liability and building a case.
If you have already waited a while, don’t assume that you don’t have a case, however. Talk to us and we will let you know if we can help you get compensation for your losses.
