If you have been injured, it is completely natural to want to hold an at-fault party responsible. Even if your injuries have been caused by another person, your case may not necessarily warrant a guaranteed compensation. That is why it is so important to hire a knowledgeable and skilled Indianapolis personal injury lawyer.Strong Counsel from a Personal Injury Lawyer in Indiana
If you have been involved in an accident and have sustained injuries as a result of someone else's negligence, chances are you will need time and money to recover properly. With help from a skilled Indianapolis insurance dispute attorney, your legal representative can pursue your maximum compensation as you recover. To succeed in any personal injury claim, four criteria must be met in order to collect damages for your injuries, and we are adept at proving the following:
- Duty of Care - People must take measures to ensure our actions do not cause harm to others. A successful case must be able to prove that a negligent party had a duty of care toward you or your loved one.
- Breach of Duty - Failing to exercise duty of care can prove negligence. If an attorney is able to prove that the breach of duty was foreseeable to the negligent party and proper care was not exercised to prevent the accident from occurring, compensation can be enhanced.
- Cause of the Accident - Lawyers must be able to prove that the cause of an accident is directly related to the breach of care committed by the negligent party.
- Your Damages - Ultimately, the amount of your compensation can hinge on the calculated damages. A skilled attorney can prove that not only are the damages a direct result of the accident but can also calculate the total cost of the injuries so you can be awarded completely.
As a policy holder, you trust and rely on your insurance company to uphold their end of a contract to provide financial help after an accident. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Most insurance companies typically do not want to have a lawsuit on their hands, but companies will still try to offer policy holders the least possible amount that you are entitled to receiving in order to turn a profit.
Examples of insurance bad faith can include:
- Deceptive practices to avoid paying claims
- Refusal to pay a claim without reasonable justification
- Failing to investigate the claim in a timely manner
- Unreasonable delay in resolving claim
- Failing to disclose policy limits and explain policy provisions or exclusions
- Arbitrary or unreasonable demands for proof of loss
- Compelling an insured to contribute to settlement
