Evansville Car Accident FAQs

When Should I Contact an Attorney After a Car Accident?

You should contact an Evansville car accident lawyer as soon as possible if you are in a car wreck. We can gather the essential evidence necessary for you to bring a successful claim. Insurance companies frequently offer low amounts to injured parties that may not cover all your expenses. We can help handle each aspect of your car accident claim so that you recover what you deserve.

How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in Indiana?

Under Indiana law, you will have two years from the accident date to file a car accident case. The “clock” starts to run beginning on the day of the collision. The process of filing a claim can be lengthy, so ensure that you reach out to a lawyer early on. A skillful attorney can help you build your claim in advance and file it in a timely fashion.

How Long Do Most Car Accident Settlements Take?

The amount of time it takes to receive a car accident settlement varies based on the complexities of your claim. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to several years. For instance, if the level of fault needs to be clarified, this can make a claim take longer to settle. Additionally, if you have more severe injuries and losses, receiving a fair amount of compensation will take time.

What Should I Do If the Other Driver’s Insurance Company Contacts Me?

You do not have to speak to the other driver’s insurance company. They do not have your best interests in mind, so it is essential to be cautious. If you do talk to them, explain that you will not discuss any details about the collision or who is responsible. You can also ask them to gather specific information from your car insurance company. 

What Happens If I Was Partially at Fault for the Accident?

It is common for multiple parties to be liable for a car accident. Nevertheless, if you are partially at fault, it does not necessarily mean that you won’t be able to recover compensation. In Indiana, you could still recover some compensation if your percentage of fault is under 51%. This is because Indiana follows modified comparative negligence laws.
