Muncie Indiana Personal Injury Lawyer
Every year, car crashes kill or seriously injure millions of Americans. In addition to severe injuries, these victims must deal with the sudden loss of income as well as the sudden loss of the family car. Making matters worse, as they struggle to recover, insurance company representatives seemingly call constantly with settlement offers. It’s tempting to take the offer and try to move on. But victims simply do not know if the offer is fair.

Matters We Handle
No one is immune to serious personal injuries. They can affect any person at any time. In fact, largely due to pre-existing medical conditions, some individuals face an elevated risk of injury. At the office of Keffer Hirschauer LLPis a collection of full-service Muncie personal injury attorneys and other professionals. So, we routinely handle a wide range of matters, including:
- Car Wrecks: Directly or indirectly, driver impairment causes most of the vehicle collisions in Delaware County. Common kinds of impairment include alcohol or drug use, even if the drug is legal to take, excessive fatigue, and distraction. Because today’s vehicles are so big and so fast, the resulting injuries are often catastrophic.
- Dog Bites: Animal attacks account for about a third of the homeowners’ insurance claims in Indiana. Typically, owners are legally responsible for these incidents, which often cause serious physical and emotional injuries. A third party, like a landlord who looks the other way, might be partially liable for these injuries as well.
- Falls: Most owners have a legal responsibility to preserve the safety of most visitors. If a property owner knew about a hazardous condition, such as a wet spot on a floor or an uneven walkway, our Muncie personal injury attorneys hold these individuals responsible for their neglect.
The bottom line is that, if you were injured in an accident which was at least partially someone else’s fault, you might be entitled to compensation. This compensation normally includes money for economic damages, such as medical bills, and noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering.
Victim/plaintiffs have the burden of proof in these claims. They must establish negligence, or a lack of care, by a preponderance of the evidence, or more likely than not.
So, our Muncie personal injury attorneys diligently collect evidence on your behalf. This evidence usually includes witness statements, medical records, and police reports.
Collecting evidence is only part of the task. Pieces of evidence are often like the jumbled pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Our professional team also assembles evidence into a coherent picture for the jury, according to a legal theory like ordinary negligence, which is a simple lack of care, or negligence per se, which is a violation of a safety statute.
