Paul's Video Bio

For over 35 years, Mr. Kruse has represented injury victims in over 50 counties across the State of Indiana, as well as Illinois, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan. He has resolved thousands of personal injury claims, through settlements, court trials, and jury verdicts in nearly every type of personal injury matter, including motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, product liability, and medical malpractice.

Since 1988, he has been a board member for the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association. Mr. Kruse most recently served as president of the Board of Directors for the IU McKinney School of Law Alumni Association where he has served as a board member for the past eleven years working with alumni faculty and students of the law school to provide programs and events for the students’ education and development of skills.

Mr. Kruse has resided in central Indiana his entire life in Boone and Montgomery Counties. He credits his success as a personal injury lawyer to the lessons learned and relationships formed in smaller, county seat communities where people recognize the importance of trust, honesty, and good, old fashioned hard work. A fierce legal advocate, Mr. Kruse has dedicated his legal career to helping injury victims in Indiana recover from the damages caused by the negligence of others.

Mr. Kruse has been recognized by the Super Lawyers organization and selected by his peers as one of the top personal injury attorneys in the State of Indiana for the past fifteen years. He has also been recognized by the Indiana Best Lawyers organization.

For the past 25 years, Mr. Kruse has developed referral relationships with attorneys from counties throughout Indiana, providing assistance to their clients for personal injury claims. As part of his representation, Mr. Kruse travels to and meets with clients in the referring attorneys’ offices or, when necessary, at the client’s home.
