What our clients are saying

“My wife was hit head-on by an F-350 that did not yield at an intersection from which, we found later, that she suffered irreparable nerve damage in her leg. We consulted with and hired Chris Garrison and his team to represent my wife. They guided us and handled everything from start to finish. We reached a successful settlement with the insurance company, thanks to Chris.”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Our Indianapolis car accident attorneys field a lot of questions throughout the course of a case. Here are some of the most common questions our clients ask our team.

Why do I need a car accident attorney in Indiana?

The insurance companies are not on your side. While sometimes it might seem like it, they do not have your best interests at heart. They maximize profits by underpaying claims.

You need legal representation. Our auto accident lawyers will always work in your best interests.

I might be partially at fault for my car accident. Is that a problem?

This would only prevent recovery if you were more at fault than the other driver. Call us for a free car accident case review and we’ll be able to give you a detailed response for your specific case.

What are some common causes of car crashes in the state of Indiana?

Driver negligence is the most common cause of car accidents in Indiana. Driver negligence can look like a lot of different things. Here are some common forms driver negligence can take.

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Fatigue
  • Not following the rules of the road
  • Aggressive driving
  • Failure to maintain a vehicle
  • Not yielding to pedestrians
  • Reckless driving
  • Running red lights
  • Running stop signs
  • Wrong-way down a one-way

How much will an Indiana Automobile Accident Lawyer cost me?

Our accident lawyers handle all injury cases on a contingency fee. That means you only pay an attorney fee if we make a recovery for you. That fee is a percentage of the total recovery. Here’s how that breaks down…

  • If your case is settled without filing a lawsuit: We charge one-third of the total recovery.
  • If it is necessary to file a lawsuit: We raise our percentage to 40% once we file your lawsuit in court.
  • Both rates are subject to rare exceptions.

Processing a claim is different than litigating a lawsuit. In personal injury law, the negotiation process often leads to a settlement without filing a lawsuit in court. In this case, there are no court hearings to attend, no depositions to prepare for and attend, and no written discovery to respond to or draft. The case becomes much more labor-intensive for the lawyer once they have to file a lawsuit. Thus, the fee percentage goes up.

 

Are there additional costs of a personal injury case?

At Garrison Law Firm, we typically advance the claim preparation costs for medical records on behalf of the client. If we file a lawsuit, we typically advance all litigation expenses. This includes expert witness fees.

Once the case is resolved, those advanced expenses must be repaid by you. This typically is paid out of settlement proceeds or from the collection of a jury verdict.

Under Indiana law, contingent fee agreements must be in writing. So, we will give you a contract to sign that explains in more detail the agreement for your case.

How long will my auto accident case take to settle?

Every car accident case is different. The insurance company will try to settle for as little as possible in injury cases. How long your case takes will depend on the facts of your case and whether you are willing to take the best settlement we can acquire from the insurance companies. Filing a lawsuit in your accident case will extend that timeline quite a bit.

How soon should I see a doctor after my car accident?

Immediately. If you have more than minor cuts and bruises you’ll want to see a doctor immediately just for your own health. In addition, the sooner your injuries are assessed and treated the sooner we may understand the extent and value of your case for you.

Sometimes, the onset of injury might be delayed. You could wake up a day or more later with significant pain. We suggest you see a doctor as soon as possible after you being to experience any pain or suffering due to a car accident.

How much is my car accident case worth in Indiana?

There are a lot of factors that go into valuing a car accident case in Indiana. Damages you might receive compensation for could include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income (absent from work)
  • Future lost income (inability to work),
  • Rehabilitation or therapy costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Loss of love and support (wrongful death)

What are the most common car accident injuries?

Car accidents can result in many different types and severity of injuries. Here are some of the most common car accident injuries.

  • Head injuries
  • Broken ribs
  • Broken bones
  • Scrapes or cuts
  • Internal bleeding
  • Knee trauma
  • Herniated discs
  • PTSD
  • Whiplash
  • Internal organ damage
  • Vision or hearing problems.

The worst car accidents can result in permanent injuries, disfiguration, disabilities, paralysis, and sometimes death.
