Greenwood Personal Injury Lawyer
When you’ve suffered an injury because of the negligence of someone else and you’re considering filing a civil lawsuit, get in touch with a qualified Greenwood injury lawyer.
If you were injured in a serious accident, you more than likely need to take time off of work in order to focus on your recovery. This is impossible for many Americans who rely on their monthly income. And financial strain is just one of the countless hardships an injury can cause.
Your Greenwood personal injury lawyer at Kooi Law is prepared to advocate for your right to fair compensation. We will thoroughly investigate the cause of the accident to establish liability and ensure that you obtain full compensation for your losses.
Accidents That Lead to Greenwood Personal Injury Claims
The key to success in a personal injury claim is being able to establish who is at fault for your accident and resulting injuries. The good news is that nearly any type of incident that was caused by someone else’s negligence will likely warrant a personal injury claim in Greenwood, Indiana. Some of the most common types of accidents our clients have been injured in include the following:
- Premises liability incidents, such as slip-and-falls and dog attacks
- Medical malpractice, including birth injuries and other forms of medical negligence
- Motor vehicle accidents, including crashes involving cars, motorcycles, and trucks
- Defective products, such as defective medications, exploding electronics, and faulty car parts
Because we are hoping to secure maximum compensation for your damages, is critical to the success of your claim that we prove that someone else was at fault. This is because Indiana utilizes modified comparative negligence laws to apportion fault in an accident.
Essentially, this means that even if you are partially responsible for the accident, you may still be able to pursue your losses. Your awarded amount, however, will be reduced based on the percentage of liability you carry.
Getting Compensated for Your Suffering
Many types of damages should be considered when calculating the value of your Greenwood injury claim. They are often categorized as follows:
|Economic Damages||Non-Economic Damages|
|Lost wages||Pain and suffering|
|Medical expenses||Loss of enjoyment of life|
|Property damage||Mental anguish|
|Damage to your potential future earnings||Loss of companionship and love|
These are just a few of the types of losses that will be considered when determining what your claim is worth. We might also include the loss of household services, inconvenience, or the effects of disfigurement in your claim.
Some cases will even warrant punitive damages. These are meant to punish the defendant for intentionally harmful or egregiously negligent actions and prevent similar incidents in the future. Punitive damages are relatively rare, but they can significantly raise the value of your personal injury claim.
