Defending Birth Injury Victims in Indiana

September 21, 2016

There are few moments in life that compare to when your first child is born. It may sound cliché, but it’s true that everything changes in that moment. After months of anticipation and planning, your child is finally coming into the world, and all you hope and pray for is that he or she will be healthy. Unfortunately, thousands of parents every year receive the devastating news that their child suffered a birth injury and as a result will have a very different life than the one they had hoped for.

Birth injuries can occur in every stage of the pregnancy, including after care once your child is born. The medical professionals tasked with your child’s safety have a responsibility to provide exceptional care at every stage of the process, as just one lapse of judgment can change your family forever. At Stewart & Stewart, we stand behind the families with children who have suffered birth injuries due to someone else’s negligence. Those families need experienced legal help in their time of crisis, and we’re proud to provide it.

If your child suffered a birth injury, give us a call today for a free consultation. Our team of Indiana birth injury lawyers is ready to fully investigate your child’s injury to determine who is responsible and to fight for the justice your child deserves. You don’t have to go through this alone. Contact us today.

Don’t Leave Money on the Table

September 14, 2016

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app for maximizing your injury claim after a serious accident? All you’d have to do is touch the screen, and the insurance company would give you every dollar you deserve. Unfortunately, getting what you deserve after an accident isn’t that easy. In fact, it can be extremely difficult if you try to take on the insurance company alone.

Most folks don’t realize this, but your injury claim doesn’t end with the accident itself. The insurance company may want you to believe that the injuries you sustained and the treatment you received after your accident is all they are liable for, but that’s seldom the case. You have to look at your injury claim as a series of events directly linked to your accident. It’s like dominos. The accident is simply the first to be knocked over, which leads to another and another and another. Your injury claim should include the entire impact of your accident, which may  include medical expenses, physical therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Without an experienced attorney on your side, you could be leaving significant amounts of money on the table that you will need later on.

Don’t risk going it alone after your accident. Call our experienced Indiana car accident attorneys for a free consultation. We’ll stand up to the insurance company on your behalf and fight for every dollar you deserve. Call today.

Trucking Accident Legal Help in Indiana

September 07, 2016

At Stewart & Stewart, we have a deep respect for truck drivers, as they make life as we know it possible in communities throughout the U.S. Without truckers, we wouldn’t have the commodities such as groceries, fuel, or clothing. That responsibility comes with a lot of pressure, especially for the trucking companies. They need to run their routes on time and often to keep the system going, sometimes at the expense of their drivers.

When truck drivers are required to drive fatigued or without proper recovery time, the results can be devastating. Many tractor-trailer loads weigh upwards of 80,000 lbs. The amount of force behind that type of load can completely demolish a car in a split second. It only takes one lapse of concentration and/or judgment to forever change the lives of a driver, a family, or an entire community. That’s why it’s vitally important that every truck accident victim stand up to the trucking companies to get justice for themselves, as well as help ensure someone else doesn’t suffer the same fate.

If you’ve been injured in a truck accident, give us a call today at Stewart & Stewart for a free consultation. We’ll hold the trucking company responsible for your injuries accountable by fighting to get you maximum compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Don’t wait to get legal help. Call us today.
