Indianapolis Personal Injury FAQ

We have the answers to all of your questions about personal injury law in Indiana and how it will affect your claim. Below, you’ll find the answers to some questions our clients often ask us. Feel free to call us with any other questions you have.

What Is My Claim Worth?

The value of your claim will largely depend on how serious your injuries are and how they will affect your life. It stands to reason that, the more severely you’ve been affected, the greater your compensation will be. We always consider economic and non-economic damages, as well as punitive damages if they apply, when calculating a reasonable request for compensation.

Should I Speak with the Insurance Company?

It’s often best to keep your conversations with the insurance adjuster to a minimum. Insurers operate on their own agenda and do not usually put the needs of their claimants above their own. They go to great lengths to minimize their settlement amounts, which can often include manipulating the statements given to them by claimants in an attempt to maximize the victim’s culpability.

What Is Modified Comparative Negligence?

This is a way that courts determine fault in an accident. Indiana practices modified comparative negligence, in which those seeking compensation can hold blame of up to 50 percent before they are no longer able to obtain damages. Your awarded amount will be reduced by however much blame you hold in the accident. For example. If you are 25 percent responsible, you’ll receive 75 percent of your award.

Do I Really Need an Attorney to File a Claim?

Having a lawyer can be very useful in filing an Indianapolis personal injury claim. We have extensive experience in personal injury law and the litigation process. We know how to go about collecting appropriate evidence and how to calculate the maximum value of a claim. In almost all cases, working with an attorney will benefit your case.

How Much Does a Lawyer Cost?

At Crossen Kooi Law, we work on an attorney contingency fee. This allows us to come to a mutual fee agreement with clients. You will not have to make any payments unless or until we win your case, and then we will be able to deduct our fee from your winnings so you’ll never have to worry about payment after the case is resolved.

Will I Have to Go to Court if I Sue?

We are often able to avoid going to court by negotiating a fair settlement with the other side. We usually end up in front of a judge if the other side fails to continue negotiating or has made an insultingly low offer. In these cases, we may bring your case to court so you are able to receive a reasonable compensation award.
