Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyer

Each personal injury attorney at the Law Office of William W. Hurst, LLC knows being involved in an accident can change your entire life in just seconds. If you are seriously injured in an accident medical bills could begin to pile up, you may be forced to miss work, and an insurance company will be trying to pressure you into settling your claim quickly, for far less money than you deserve. The stressful of all this can become unbearable.

Luckily, that’s where our legal team can help. Not only will we make sure you are adequately compensated for your injuries, we will deal with the insurance companies for you and ensure that you can focus solely on recovering from your injuries while we handle your insurance claims.

Our top rated law firm and team of Indianapolis personal injury attorneys have over 35 years of experience helping injury victims in Indiana recover the financial compensation they deserve.

We’ve handled every type of claim including minor slip and falls that cause bumps and bruises, car accidents resulting in spinal cord injuries such as whiplash, complex product liability cases, catastrophic semi-truck accidents resulting in brain injuries, and even devastating wrongful death claims. Because of our experience, you can rest assured that our team can handle any legal issue that may arise.

Why Do You Need an Injury Attorney?

Indiana Injury Facts show that more than 32,000 Hoosiers are hospitalized each year and more than 600,000 visit the emergency room for injuries each year. Statistics show the average cost of an emergency room visit is $3,300, while the average lifetime cost of being hospitalized is $57,000. How would you pay for these bills? What if you were forced to miss work due to your injuries? Well, if your injuries were caused by the negligence so someone else, we can help make sure you aren’t the one “footing the bill” by holding the insurance companies accountable.

The insurance companies all have the same goal in mind, making money. If they pay out insurance claims, they’re losing money. That means they’ll do everything they can to either avoid paying you or pay you as little as possible. They know you can’t fight them on your own and the only way to show them you’re serious is by hiring an injury attorney who they know isn’t afraid to take your case all the way to trial. Jury trials cost both sides money and they’re difficult, but a personal injury law firm like ours has both the resources to take your case to trial and the experience to win it. Insurance companies know that and they’ll be more willing to offer you fair compensation if we’re on your side.

Without an attorney you risk being under compensated for your injuries. This could lead to you paying for medical bills out of pocket and never being compensated for the pain and suffering you were forced to endure at no fault of your own.

The effects of the injuries you or a loved one receives as the result of a car, truck, or motorcycle accident are devastating enough without these types of long lasting effects. It is vital that you obtain the best legal advice possible and do so as early as possible so an attorney familiar with personal injury law can properly handle your injury claim.

Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyer

Why would you need a personal injury attorney? If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, how will you and your family cover the cost of those, and related, medical expenses? Your injuries may cause you to miss work, or may even significantly limit your future earning potential for the rest of your life. If your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible for compensation. According to Indiana Injury Facts, more than 32,000 Indiana residents are hospitalized each year, and more than 600,000 visit the emergency room due to injuries. A hospitalization costs an average of $57,000, and a single emergency room visit costs an average of $3,300.  At the Law Office of William W. Hurst, our experienced attorneys can help you collect compensation for the full cost of your injuries, so you aren’t stuck taking care of those costs on your own.

How Do Insurance Companies Try to Get out of Paying?

The primary goal of insurance companies, like most other organizations, is to make money. Paying out claims, even valid ones, means that the companies lose money—which explains why most insurance companies try to limit the amount of their payouts as much as possible. In some cases, they may even try to avoid paying altogether. Their cost-saving strategies can include offering immediate settlement amounts that don’t fully compensate you for your injuries, or attempting to mitigate the responsibility of their clients.

Furthermore, insurance companies recognize that the average citizen does not have the skills or resources to engage in costly litigation and settlement negotiations. That is why hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is so important. The attorneys at the Law Office of William W. Hurst have the resources and experience to make clear to insurance companies that you are serious about your claim. In many cases, simply hiring an attorney to represent you will convince them to offer a more honest settlement amount that is more aligned with the actual cost of your injuries.
