Soft Tissue Injuries

One of the most difficult types of personal injury cases is one that involves whiplash or soft tissue damage. These types of injuries often do no show up on MRIs and x-rays, and people often do not complain of symptoms until hours, or even days, after the accident occurs. Insurance companies use these excuses to offer low settlements or even no settlements for these types of injuries. It is critical that you have an attorney on your side that understands whiplash and soft tissue injuries.

Drunk Drivers and Intoxicated Persons

If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, not only may you be able to sue the drunk driver that caused the accident, but you may be able to the bar or establishment that over served the driver.

Under Indiana’s dram shop laws, it is illegal to serve alcohol to an individual who is visibly intoxicated, and if they do so, the establishment is responsible for the foreseeable damage that the intoxicated person causes.

In cases of egregious conduct, such as drunk driving, you may also make a claim for punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to “punish” the wrongdoer for their conduct, and discourage that type of behavior in others. The prospect of a potential punitive damage claim may cause insurance companies to place a higher settlement value on your case.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver or an intoxicated patron of an establishment, or even if you injured yourself after being over served, speak to one of the attorneys at POYNTER & BUCHERI to find out your rights.

Trucking Accidents

What do I do if I’m injured in an accident with a semi or other commercial truck?

Semi and commercial truck drivers are subject to stricter regulations than most regular drivers. There are regulations on how much the drivers can drive and how they secure their loads. In addition, collisions with commercial vehicles can often be more violent and lead to more serious injuries. When you are involved in an accident with a commercial vehicle, it is best to get advice from someone who has experience with these types of claims and that knows what issues to look for. If you need assistance in a claim involving a commercial vehicle, please speak to one of the attorneys at POYNTER & BUCHERI.
