Hurt on public or private property? Who is to blame?

When you visit a friend's home or take a trip to the grocery store, you have a reasonable expectation that your personal safety is not under threat. However, accidents do happen, circumstances are not always controllable and you could find yourself hurt. If you suffered harm while on public or private property in Indiana, you may be wondering who is to blame.

Who's to blame for a slip-and-fall accident? It may not be you

Slip-and-fall accidents can be embarrassing and painful. If you recently experienced this type of incident, your main concern may be simply moving on from what happened as quickly as possible. However, your injuries and lingering pain may not let you forget what happened, leaving you to wonder what you should do next. 

Cell phones are not always to blame

It's almost difficult to imagine life in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio (or anywhere) before cell phones, isn't it? Depending on your age, you might never have lived during a time when there weren't people constantly in your vicinity using these amazing electronic devices. As with all products, though, customer reviews of cell phones can still come with many positive and various dangers. However, some particular injuries occurring to those using cell phones while walking may actually have more to do with surrounding factors, such as premises liability, in many cases.

A personal injury claim covers more than just medical bills

Whether you have been hurt in a car accident, while falling, or from a dog bite, you will find that an injury costs more than just the medical bills. After a severe injury you can be impacted financially, physically and emotionally. Many times the mounting costs and suffering add up to be much more than what an insurance company is willing to pay.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after an accident?

Deadlines are not the first thing that you think about after an accident. After a life altering accident you will be focused on day to day essentials such as healing, eating and resting. If you were in a car accident then you will be thinking about how you will get to work and when you will find a new vehicle. Once you have the important basics sorted out your next step should be to decide if you want to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Marijuana and DUIs in Indiana

In states like Indiana where alcohol is one of the only drugs that is legally available for recreational use, alcohol is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you start talking about driving under the influence. However, even though the law prohibits the use of many other intoxicants, such as marijuana, many people use them anyway and there are legal consequences for both their use and driving while under their influence.

Winter weather increases your risk of slipping and falling

The days are shorter and temperatures are dropping here in Indiana, which means that there is a potential for snow and ice. Winter weather means an increase in the risk of slipping and falling. No matter how careful you might try to be when walking, remaining upright could be a challenge.
