In today’s fast-paced world, information, as well as misinformation, abound. The last thing most injured people feel like doing is sifting through truths, half-truths, and lies in order to find the right attorney.

Common Factors in Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury can be defined as an injury to the body, mind, or emotions. This legal term is commonly used to address the negligence of another person leading up to the injury. For example, if the owner of a store does not shovel the snow in front of his or her store and, thus, leads to the victim’s injury, then this is an act of negligence. There are three common types of damages: (a) bodily injury; (b) intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED); and (c) negligent infliction of emotional distress (NIED). Examples of bodily injury include road traffic accidents, tripping, product liability. An example of IIED would be the victim’s feeling of emotional distress after having their life threatened. A case of NIED would be an incorrect diagnosis of a sexually transmitted disease leading to the breakup of a marriage.

In Indiana, plaintiffs generally have two years to make a personal injury case. There may be shorter time limits for giving notice of intent to sue, such as making a claim against a city or county (180 days) or state government agency (270 days). But, often there are ways around some deadlines, so always consult a Merrillville attorney if you think a deadline may have expired just to be sure.

Many injury cases also call into play a rule of law called “comparative fault,” a situation in which the injured person is found to be partially responsible for what happened to them. This means that a certain percentage of the plaintiff’s damages award will be taken away (e.g., 20% fault would take $2,000 out of a $10,000 damages award). However, if the plaintiff is found to be more than 50% responsible, then there may be no damages award to collect.
