When and Why do I Need an Accident Attorney?
While you’re not required to retain a lawyer for your injury or workers’ compensation claim, you should understand that insurance companies have deep pockets to pay teams of lawyers and adjusters whose sole job is to evaluate your claim for potential weaknesses. This puts you at a big disadvantage right from the start, which is why it’s vital that you get your own legal representation as soon as possible to balance out the odds in your favor.
Not every situation requires an attorney, but here are a few complicating factors that indicate when it’s time to consult with a legal professional:
- You or a loved one suffered a serious, long-term injury or permanent disability
- You’re unsure who was at fault (liable) for the accident
- Multiple parties are involved
- An insurance company denies or delays your claim
- The statute of limitations will soon expire on your case
- You’re confused about the legal process and what’s required of you
Unless you are a trained lawyer, we strongly recommend that you consult a professional rather than handling your personal injury case on your own. Studies repeatedly show that injured plaintiffs fare much better when they have an attorney managing their claim.
In fact, the average insurance payout for clients who hire an attorney is 3.5 times larger than for those who handle their case on their own.
Think about that the next time you are considering handling your case on your own.
Cases We Handle
Negligence is the basis for determining liability in most personal injury lawsuits. In other words: Was the defendant legally responsible for the damages you sustained in an accident?
Once negligence has been proven, the nature and extent of your damages must be established in order to award you compensation for your loss. Personal injury damages are intended to compensate a person for physical, emotional and financial losses resulting from an accident such as your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. In the case of a fatal accident, wrongful death damages may be awarded to the deceased’s surviving loved ones.
The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit isn’t to make you rich. Rather, the goal is to financially restore the plaintiff to the condition they were in before the accident happened — or as if the accident had never happened.
Our Fort Wayne personal injury lawyers have more than 20 years of experience advocating for the rights of the injured and holding negligent parties accountable. As diligent, dedicated and compassionate representatives, we can help you build a strong personal injury claim and pursue the financial recovery you deserve.
Workplace accidents can be as frustrating as they are devastating. Complicating matters are the facts that:
- The Indiana workers’ compensation system can be challenging to navigate, especially in the wake of severe, debilitating injuries.
- Even relatively minor missteps during the claims process can cause benefits to be reduced or denied.
- Your employer’s insurance company and maybe even the doctor you see are not necessarily on your side or looking out for you
Our Fort Wayne work injury attorneys know the challenges injured workers can face when pursuing workers’ compensation claims in the Hoosier State – and we know how to overcome these challenges. We can serve you by:
- Protecting your rights, as well as the value of your claim
- Minimizing the chances that insurers (or others) will try to compromise, undercut or deny your valid claim for workers’ compensation benefits
- Helping you file first-time claims, as well as appealing a previous claim that was wrongfully denied (or benefits were wrongfully reduced or terminated)
- Positioning your claim for a quick approval and securing the maximum possible compensation
In some cases, in addition to filing a workers’ compensation claim, we may be able to file a lawsuit on your behalf against a negligent third party (like a negligent subcontractor or equipment provider, for example).
Common types of workers’ compensation claims that we are skilled at handling include (and are not limited to) workplace accidents and injuries related to:
- Explosions and electrocutions
- Equipment failures and malfunctions
- Loss of limb, disfigurement and/or scarring
- Crushing accidents
- Motor vehicle wrecks
- Construction sites
In addition to representing injured workers (from various industries and professions), our lawyers are also effective at helping families who have lost a loved one to a fatal work accident pursue death benefits.
Social Security Disability
About 70 percent of Social Security disability claims are denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in the initial application process. While the SSA may find any number of reasons to deny your disability claim, you can take steps now to position your claim for approval – and the maximum available benefits – by working with an experienced attorney at Finderson Law.
Our Fort Wayne disability lawyers are adept at helping clients successfully apply for their disability benefits, as well as Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In addition to handling first-time claims, we are experienced at overseeing appeals (when initial claims are wrongfully denied or benefits are wrongfully reduced).
Adopting a child can be an immeasurably rewarding experience. The adoption process, however, can be complex, costly and time-consuming — particularly if mistakes are made along the way.
At Finderson Law, our Fort Wayne adoption lawyers are experienced at handling various types of adoptions, including:
- Agency adoptions
- Private adoptions
- Interstate adoptions
- Foreign adoptions
Our compassionate, knowledgeable and resourceful experts can help you successfully navigate the adoption process as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Along the way, you can rely on us to provide you with clear answers and legal advice, as well as kindness and respect. Let us focus on the legal and administrative work so you can stay focused on your growing family.
