Assistance for truck accident victims

Last week's blog post touched upon the conflicting nature of the trucking industry. Although an integral part of commerce in the country, characteristics unique to the industry make truckers more susceptible to becoming involved in accidents similar to the one reported last week, resulting in one person's death.

Dram Shop Act and accountability in drunk driving crashes

Accident victims and their loved ones often feel frustrated after a car crash, and they want answers. How the accident was caused and whether their life will ever be the same are just some of the questions that go through the minds of many car accident victims. Getting answers can be difficult, but obtaining accountability doesn't have to be. In Indiana, it is possible to hold not only a drunk driver accountable for his or her negligent act, but also the establishment or host that provided him or her with alcohol.

Assistance seeking compensation for your personal injuries

As discussed last week, though many people don't think the circumstances surrounding their injuries is important, in a legal context it determines the type of case one can pursue and the relevant procedural requirements. For example, getting injured in a car accident may be a personal injury claim while a workplace accident may lead to a workers' compensation claim.

How are personal injury and workers' compensation different?

When someone is hurt due to another person's negligence, the last thing on their mind might be holding the negligent party responsible. But as the medical bills pile up and wages are lost due to the injury, they might come to realize that compensation for the personal injury may be one way to gain financial stability. There are different legal options available to injured Indiana residents, depending on the injury.

Who can pursue a lawsuit in a product liability case?

Holiday season means gifts -- both buying and receiving. But what happens when a product a person in Indiana receives injures them? Who can they hold accountable for the injuries they have sustained and the medical costs they have incurred for their treatment? Does the fact that the injured party is not even the purchaser of the product bar them from recovering against the supplier of the product?

Retailer's duties to avoid personal injuries during sale season

Everyone loves a good sale and "Black Friday" often provides amazing discounts that Indiana residents cash in on to complete their holiday shopping. People scour various websites to find out what deals to expect, when the stores will open and the added incentive being early will provide. With all the excitement comes mayhem, and the frenzy often leads to injuries and deaths. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides guidelines for retailers as to how to control a crowd and avoid related injuries.

When should I pursue a workers' compensation claim?

There is little that can make losing a loved one in a sudden car accident worse, but when parents witness the crash that results in the death of their young children, there is little that can be said to console them. People who have lost loved ones in crashes try to make sense of the situation-how could this happen and how are they going to move on with their lives? The trauma and loss cannot be explained or quantified.

When should I pursue a workers' compensation claim?

Like other states across the country, Indiana is required to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. This means when an employee is injured during the course of their employment, their employer will compensate them for their medical expenses and other expenses. The program also does not need injured workers to prove the injury was their fault to receive compensation.

What are the laws applicable to dog bites in Indiana?

It happens all the time-you see a cute playful dog, you rush forward to pet it and it starts playing with you. What else happens quite often? The dog ends up biting someone. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 4.5 million dog bites take place across the country annually. So, what do you do if you are bitten by a dog in Indiana?
