Navigating the personal injury claim process can be difficult, especially when you aren’t sure what each step involves. Knowing what to expect can bring you peace of mind and allow you to build a stronger foundation for your case. At Andrews & Crell, our attorneys are dedicated to assisting you every step of the way, ensuring you receive the compensation you’re rightfully entitled to. Our attorneys offer personalized insight into your case at a consultation. 

Understanding and Proving Negligence

One of the first and most critical steps in any personal injury claim is determining negligence. Proving that the other party was at fault due to negligence or a deliberate act is important to seeking your entitled compensation. Our team at Andrews & Crell assists in dissecting the circumstances surrounding your case to establish fault. Under Indiana’s modified comparative negligence rule, as long as you are less than 50% responsible for the accident, you may be eligible to claim damages. We can help you navigate these laws, ensuring the best possible outcome for your case.

The Journey Through the Personal Injury Claim Process

Finding the Right Attorney

Your choice of attorney can significantly impact the outcome of your case. Our attorneys at Andrews & Crell come with years of experience and a commitment to client satisfaction. We prioritize your needs, guiding you through the decision-making process with transparency and dedication.

Gathering Evidence

A strong case is built on solid evidence. Our legal team assists you in accumulating all necessary documentation, from medical records to witness statements. This meticulous preparation is crucial for substantiating your claim.

Considering a Settlement

Many personal injury cases are settled out of court. Our attorneys work closely with you to evaluate offers, ensuring they reflect the true value of your claim. We aim for a settlement that covers all your needs, from medical expenses to emotional distress.

Filing a Lawsuit

Should negotiations not yield a fair settlement, we are prepared to file a lawsuit on your behalf. This step demonstrates our readiness to advocate for your rights assertively.

Discovery Phase

During discovery, both parties exchange information to fully understand the claim’s nuances. Our experienced legal team excels in this critical phase, laying a strong groundwork for your case.

Going to Trial

Although many cases are settled before reaching this stage, our trial-ready attorneys are prepared to represent you in court if necessary. We leverage our litigation experience to present a compelling case and aim for the compensation you deserve.

The Role of the Plaintiff

While our attorneys guide and support you through each step, your role as the plaintiff is integral to the success of your claim. From seeking immediate medical care to documenting every detail related to the incident, your active involvement is crucial. Trust in your legal team and maintain open communication to ensure a cohesive effort towards achieving just compensation.
