Don’t Wait to File Your Claim!
According to the Indiana Code section 34-11-2-4, the statute of limitations
on personal injury cases in Indiana is two years. This means you have
two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will most
likely lose your legal right to recover compensation for your injuries.
While Indiana does recognize some exceptions to this two-year rule it
is best to talk to an attorney and file a claim as soon as possible. Have
any questions? Don’t hesitate to give us a call!
Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case
There are three types of damages available for injury victims in a personal
injury case, economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. The first two
damages, economic and non-economic can be grouped together as “compensatory
damages.” Compensatory damages are damages responsible for compensating
the injured party for as many losses as possible. These losses can include:
The last type of damages, punitive damages, differ from compensatory damages
in that their main purpose is to punish the at-fault party for their negligent
behavior rather than compensate the injured party.
