Personal Injury Cases
A personal injury case includes any kind of case that physically (including psychological injury if the person is married or a close relative and witnessed the loved one being killed) injures or kills a person. The Defendant is a person or business typically insured by an insurance company. The Plaintiff is the person that the Defendant carelessly hurt or killed.

Types of Personal Injury Cases
If you have been injured in one of the type of events listed below, contact Lafayette, IN personal injury lawyer Susannah Hall-Justice immediately.
This is the most common type of personal injury claim. If you have been in a car accident and suffered a serious injury due to no fault of your own, you are entitled to seek compensation for your injuries and damages.
A car accident case can include a semi and a car, two cars, or any number of other vehicles including a combine and a car. Collisions can permanently alter a person’s life. Hall-Justice Law Firm shows the Defendant’s insurance company the difference between the person’s life before the collision and the person’s life after the collision using Indiana law and the facts. The vast majority of personal injury cases are settled without a jury trial being necessary. Sometimes the insurance adjuster does not want to listen and a jury needs to deliver the message. Hall-Justice Law Firm prepares client’s cases as if they will go to jury trial so we are ready if they do.
Work-related injury claims are subject to different laws than outside the workplace claims. Sometimes both kinds of law are involved in a claim. Call us so we can help you with either, or both kinds of claims.
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you are walking through the store and suddenly slip and fall due to the negligence of the store or its employees, you should seek compensation and hire a personal injury lawyer.
If you are injured while crossing the street or on a sidewalk, you have a personal injury case. As long as you can prove the person who hit you was at fault, you should receive compensation.
Truck accidents are a very common occurrence. If you have been injured in a truck accident and the other party is at fault, you should sue for personal injury to ensure you recover without too much hardship.
While no one wants to go after an animal or the owners of a dog, sometimes a bad situation can leave you with no choice. If you or a loved one has been injured due to being bitten by a dog, you may have to sue for personal damage to cover your medical bills.
Severe Injuries and Wrongful Death
Personal injury matters can sometimes be very serious. If you have suffered a serious brain, neck or spine injury, your best bet will be to retain a personal injury lawyer to help you recover for the lifetime of expenses you will incur due to the severity of your injury. If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another, filing a lawsuit against the negligent party may be your only option in helping you move on and survive financially.
The definition of wrongful death under Indiana law is the death of a of a person caused by a Defendant’s negligent acts or failure to act (such as failing to keep a proper look out for other people on the road). In Indiana, the Plaintiff (who represents the family of the deceased human being) must prove that more likely than not (51%) that the Defendant caused the Plaintiff’s death. The loss of the person’s love and companionship, loss of guidance to children, loss of joy to a parent, loss of income to support the family, and simple presence is what Hall-Justice Law Firm seeks to help the insurance adjuster or jury understand.
