While we know that other attorneys advertise their case results on their websites, the sharing of this information is prohibited under Indiana Rules of Professional Conduct (Rule 7.1  (2)). We are proud of our success and are happy to provide our past settlement and verdict results, the number of former clients we have represented, and the total amount of money we have recovered for our clients in person during your free consultation. Every case is different and depends on many different facts and circumstances. One case’s results cannot be used to predict the outcome of another case. Blackburn & Green is confident in our past success. However, you should not expect any specific outcome for your own case based on any attorney’s past performance.
Our promise to you: If you choose to settle your case, our attorney fee will not exceed your net recovery, after case expenses and valid liens.

Chris was able to negotiate for us a settlement that far reached my expectations. I was treated with utmost professionalism and respect. I pray i never need this type of service again. However if i do, i will return.
Overall, i was very pleased with the service Blackburn & Green provided me. Not only were they professional, but they were very mindful of the stress my family was under. They went out of their way to provide me documentation that was requested by my accountant.
I am very happy with today. Blackburn and Green did a very good job. Thanks

While you’re certainly able to pursue a legal claim on your own, it can be a big mistake to do so. As an accident victim, you have enough to worry about. Hiring the right personal injury lawyer is one way to protect your right to a claim and allow you to focus on what’s important. Your injury lawyer plays many roles, including reconstructing the scene of the accident, gathering and reviewing evidence, finding expert witnesses, negotiating settlements, and representing you at trial. You need a lawyer with experience.
Most personal injury lawyers offer a no-obligation, free consultation. This is your chance to ask questions to learn more about the attorney’s experience, qualifications, and overall approach to your personal injury case. Your lawyer should instill confidence in you about the management of your case and give you peace of mind that someone is fighting hard on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve post-accident.
Your case may take anywhere from several weeks to a few months, or longer depending on the specifics. Your injuries, the other party’s willingness to settle, and the complexity of the evidence are a few things that can impact your claim. When you have an injury lawyer who cares about your future and is standing at the ready to represent you, you’ll know that they are working hard to secure the best outcome, without costly delays.
Just as there are different kinds of doctors, there are different kinds of lawyers. Some are general practitioners (who have a strong general knowledge in many areas of the law), while others limit their practice to just one field – such as personal injury and wrongful death, divorce, tax law, bankruptcy, criminal, and so on. At BLACKBURN & GREEN, we limit our practice to just personal injury and wrongful death law. By concentrating our efforts on just one area, we’re able to devote more time and energy to each client.
In order to graduate with honors from law school, it takes desire, discipline, and dedication. When you find an attorney who graduated from law school with honors, you can be assured that he or she has worked hard to obtain the knowledge and proven discipline to successfully handle your case. Tom Blackburn and R.T. Green both graduated with honors from Indiana University, Robert H. McKinney School of Law
When it comes to personal injury and wrongful death law, there’s no substitute for experience. Together, Tom Blackburn and R.T. Green have over 70 years of legal experience and have represented victims throughout the Midwest. Before founding their own personal injury law firm, each gained valuable experience by serving in various legal capacities. Those positions include deputy prosecuting attorney; circuit court judge, insurance company defense lawyer, and general practitioner.
Insurance companies know which lawyers are willing to go to trial and which ones aren’t, and they use that information in deciding how to handle your case. An experienced trial lawyer, who the insurance company knows is prepared to go to trial, is more likely to be offered a fair settlement sooner by the insurer. A lawyer who has never been to court, on the other hand, may get a lower offer. Over the years, Tom Blackburn and R.T. Green have tried many jury cases – both large and small — for their clients. In compliance with the Indiana Rules for Professional Conduct, they are happy to provide you with the number and size of jury verdict awards. Simply call toll-free 1-8OO-444-1112 and request a free appointment to discuss our jury trial experience and verdicts.
There is a difference. Lawyers who charge a flat fee earn a percentage of your total recovery amount — usually 33-1/3%of the gross recovery before deducting litigation and other expenses. This percentage stays the same regardless of whether the case is decided by settlement, mediation, trial, or appeal. Lawyers who charge an increasing fee, however, can raise their percentage to as much as 45% if the case goes to trial, and as much as 50% if it’s won by appeal. At BLACKBURN 8 GREEN, we always charge a flat fee of 33-1/3% of the gross recovery before deducting litigation and other expenses, even if your case goes to trial or appeal. We’ll stand by you all the way to trial or appeal, if necessary, and remember, you don’t pay any attorney fee unless we make a recovery for you
Since day one, personal service has been the foundation of BLACKBURN & GREEN. We don’t just say we care about you; we show it by making personal visits to your hospital or home — free of charge. When you’ve been injured or lost a loved one in an accident, it may be difficult or even impossible for you to drive to a lawyer’s office. Caring attorneys understand this, and they’re willing to make house calls and hospițal visits for your convenience. If a lawyer will not come to you, it’s a pretty good indication of the kind of service you’ll receive from that firm.
To secure evidence for your case, a lawyer will need to conduct an investigation. This might involve photographìng or videotaping the accident scene, talking to eyewitnesses, or even reconstructing the accident. At BLACKBURN & GREEN, we’ve built up a strong network of professional investigators, accident reconstructionists, and other industry experts to help us in preparing your case. We even use computer simulations of accidents to help support a case when necessary.
At BLACKBURN & GREEN, we strive for an outstanding reputation. We carry full legal mal practice insurance coverage to protect your rights. You have the right to know whether the lawyer you’re considering for (or any lawyer at that firm) has ever committed legal malpractice. Lawyers are human beings, after all, who can make mistakes. But as legal professionals, they also have a responsibility to protect your rights and financial interests. For that reason, all attorneys should carry legal malpractice insurance. Make sure the lawyer and law firm you choose is protected against legal malpractice. Not all of them are.
In the course of preparing your case, a lawyer will incur certain expenses that are separate from attorney fees. These include the cost of hiring professional investigators, obtaining medical records and reports, preparing diagrams, and so forth. A financially sound law firm will always pay these expenses in advance for you, helping you to avoid pre-litigation out-of-pocket charges before your case is decided. With BLACKBURN & GREEN, you’ll never be expected to pay pre-litigation expenses upfront. We advance all pre-litigation out-of-pocket expenses for you.
Lawyers can belong to a variety of local, state, and national associations to help them stay abreast of changes in the law. Is the lawyer you’re considering a member of or recognized by these prestigious organizations?
