Bringing a Personal Injury Claim

Every day hundreds of people in Indiana are injured in accidents, but very few ever file a personal injury lawsuit. Many are unaware they could be entitled to money damages; some don’t know how to bring a case or are afraid of the legal process. And some people who were injured on the job are not aware they have a third-party personal injury case in addition to their workers’ comp claim.

At the law office of Jacobs Law LLC, we help injured people obtain the financial compensation they need after a serious injury caused by the negligence of another. We provide legal advice, investigate cases, negotiate with insurance companies, and – if we can’t get the insurance company to give you the settlement you deserve – we bring personal injury lawsuits to court.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you can be certain that the insurance companies have lawyers representing their interests. You should, too. Contact our office in Indianapolis or Muncie to schedule a free case evaluation with one of our experienced personal injury attorneys.

Think You Can’t Afford a Lawyer? Think Again

Few people who have suffered serious injuries have the financial resources to pay an attorney, much less pay all their doctor bills. We understand that and we advance lawsuit expenses for you. We handle every injury case on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay no attorney fees unless and until we recover money for you.

Talk with a lawyer soon after the accident: Immediately after an accident, see your doctor, and follow your doctor’s advice. You have a medical professional for your medical treatment and you need a legal professional for y our legal matters. You should speak with an attorney before you talk with your insurance company. Having a lawyer to communicate with your insurance company prevents you from saying or doing something that could hurt your chances for financial recovery. Insurance claims adjustors will act quickly to settle your case. Once you have accepted a settlement offer, you cannot come back to the insurer for more money at a later time. You could be stuck paying for additional medical expenses out of pocket.

As soon as you hire an attorney to represent you, you will no longer need to deal with insurance companies, insurance claims, or medical bills. Your lawyer will handle it. You can focus on your physical recovery.

We will investigate and gather evidence: We will gather your medical information and, if needed, help you locate a physician or work with your doctor and view your medical reports to understand your medical history and treatment plan. If needed, we will hire an accident investigator or reconstructionist to piece together the cause, or causes, of your accident.

We will negotiate with the insurance company: With information in hand, we will try to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company. We have handled hundreds of injury cases. We know the types of medical problems that can arise from an injury and the value of a case. We work to ensure you receive money for current and anticipated future medical bills.

We will keep you informed of any insurance settlement offers, and will advise you whether we think the offer is fair or whether a lawsuit is likely to achieve a better result. The choice is always yours but by working with an experienced lawyer you can make a more informed decision about whether to settle or bring your claim to court.

We will bring a personal injury lawsuit to civil court: If a lawsuit is the only way to get you the money you need, we are experienced and effective advocates for you in the courtroom.

We will work to ensure your medical bills are covered: Your medical bills are your responsibility and we help you make sure all of your medical bills are paid. We negotiate with hospitals, health care providers and insurers to wait until you have received your settlement before demanding payment.
