A motor vehicle accident can come with various difficulties that can negatively affect your financial, physical, and emotional health. Fortunately, if you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle crash because of another person or entity’s negligent actions, you may have the legal right to pursue monetary compensation to cover all the losses you’ve incurred in the crash. 

Common Causes of Indiana Motor Vehicle Accidents

All motorists are legally obligated to drive in a safe and reasonable manner that ensures other road users’ safety. Otherwise, they can injure other people because of these unsafe driving practices: 

  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving 
  • Fatigued driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving 
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Improper turns
  • Drugged driving 
  • Road rage

  • Ignoring stop signs and traffic lights

Common Injuries Resulting From Indiana Motor Vehicle Accidents

Serious motor vehicle crashes can cause terrible injuries, like the ones below, that can have life-altering consequences for you and your family: 

  • Head injuries

  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Bone fractures
  • Whiplash
  • Neck injuries 
  • Back injuries 
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage

Unfortunately, motor vehicle crashes can lead to fatal injuries that result in the injured person’s untimely death. In such cases, the deceased’s surviving family may have a wrongful death claim against the motorist that caused the accident. 

Do I Have a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim?

Before you can take the necessary legal steps to pursue compensation from the motorist that caused the crash, you must prove that the crash occurred due to their negligence. Your Indiana motor vehicle accident lawyer must prove that the at-fault motorist owed you a legal duty of care and violated that duty by causing an accident and injuring you. 

You must likewise prove that their negligent actions, and the resulting accident, led to your injuries, such that you wouldn’t have been harmed had it not been for the at-fault motorist’s negligent acts. Lastly, you must prove that you sustained damages because they violated their duty of care. 

Whether through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover both economic and non-economic damages to cover your accident-related expenses. These damages may include, but aren’t limited to: 

  • Past, ongoing, and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Expenses related to replacing or repairing your vehicle
  • Emotional distress
  • Physical and mental pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
