In most cases, you have 2 years to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit in Indiana, according to the statute of limitations. In most cases, the period will begin when your injury occurs. However, in some special circumstances, the 2 year period may be extended. If you have suffered a personal injury, do not wait to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you determine how long you have to file your claim.
If you have been injured in an accident, yours is not a rare case. More than 32,000 Hoosiers are hospitalized for injuries each year and over half a million Indiana residents visit the emergency room to receive care for such injuries.
An injury can turn your life upside down. The period you spent in the hospital will have to be paid for. Loss of wages increased medical bills and being forced to reduce the number of hours you work or taking a lower paying job are all things that you will need to contend with. Having to deal with the consequences of your injury can bring tremendous stress and strain to your family. If the injury is the result of an accident due to someone else’s recklessness or negligence, then you should make a claim against that person and his or her insurance.
The first thing you should do is retain the services of a lawyer. Blackburn & Green is a law firm dedicated to serving Indiana families. Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling personal injury cases of all kinds, including car wrecks, bus accidents, dog bites, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall injuries, spinal cord injuries, and many more.
Blackburn & Green believes in fairness and transparency. That is why we offer the Fair Fee Guarantee. Simply stated, it is a promise that should you choose to settle your case, our attorney fee will not exceed your net compensation. Before you sign anything that makes you our client, we will be sure to explain how this guarantee can be affected by various settlements or awards.
The attorneys at Blackburn & Green deliver a focused and personalized approach to each client. Although no guarantee can be made about the outcome of your particular case, we do all that we can to gather and analyze the facts of the case.

Many people worry that a claim or lawsuit will end in a trial. However, most claims are resolved through a settlement without ever seeing a courtroom. The attorneys at Blackburn & Green will push for a cash settlement that compensates you for all that you have had to endure or suffer. However, if the defense comes back with an offer that is unacceptable to you, Blackburn & Green will not hesitate to take a valid claim to trial.
