A personal injury claim is a stressful experience for many individuals. They have been injured through no fault of their own and now must try to figure out how to obtain compensation for their injuries. Fortunately, personal injury attorneys take over the legal claims process for these individuals so that they may rest and recover after their accidents.
Every type of legal claim has a deadline attached to it. If a claim is not filed by this deadline, the claim may be dismissed. These deadlines are called the statute of limitations. In Indiana, an injured victim has two years to file a personal injury claim. There may be some unique circumstances in your case that could extend or shorten this deadline. Therefore, it is important to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
When filing a personal injury case, the main question on most claimants’ minds is, “How much is my claim worth?” The answer largely depends on the individual circumstances of the case. However, the following factors are carefully considered when estimating the value of an injury claim:
Medical expenses, including future medical costs
Loss of employment benefits
Loss of earning capacity
Pain and suffering
Loss of consortium
If a death has occurred, the cost of the funeral and/or burial, as well as the lost future earnings of the deceased
Verdicts in similar cases in the same jurisdiction
Whether the defendant’s conduct was especially egregious or reckless
Some cases may be worth a few thousand dollars, whereas others may be worth millions.
