If you’ve been hurt in Indiana, it’s important to talk with an Indiana injury lawyer. An experienced attorney can help you understand your rights and options and get the compensation you deserve.
Not every injury case is worth a million dollars, but they all start the same way. A personal injury case must have three things:
- a person who got hurt,
- a person who is responsible, and
- an amount of money that can make things right.
Determining the Value of an Injury Case
The ability to pay is limited by the amount of insurance held by the person who caused the injury. In Indiana, the minimum insurance for cars is $25,000. If the at-fault driver only has the minimum coverage, it will probably not be a million dollar case. The reason? Because there’s only $25,000 at stake.
If you want to protect yourself, you can purchase extra insurance in case the person who hurts you doesn’t have enough to cover your injuries. For example, the Marc Lopez Law Firm once had a client who was badly hurt, but the other driver only had $50,000 in auto insurance. The client, however, had her own supplemental insurance and was able to recover more than $1,000,000.
Make the Right Call
A million dollar case doesn’t come along every day. It requires serious injuries and an at-fault party with deep pockets.
