Evansville Personal Injury Attorney

Life has no guarantees. A catastrophic personal injury can happen anytime, to anyone, and you could be severely injured with no warning. An automobile accident, a stairway or balcony collapse, or merchandise falling from high shelves – these are just three examples of how injuries can happen instantly and unexpectedly. After sustaining such an injury, you may not be capable of working temporarily, or in the worst-case scenario, permanently.

Whether you’ve been injured temporarily or permanently, if you are injured by another person’s negligence, there’s real hope for injury victims in and near Evansville. An experienced Evansville personal injury attorney at the Tuley Law Office can review your case, offer you sound legal advice and insights, and explain your rights and legal options. If you’ve been injured by another person’s negligence – and if you can prove it, with an attorney’s help – you are entitled under Indiana law to complete reimbursement for ongoing and future medical expenses arising from the injury, lost wages, and all of your other injury-related damages and losses.

Evansville personal injury attorney Daniel J. Tuley has been practicing personal injury law for more than a quarter-of-a-century, and he’s helped hundreds of injury victims in Indiana to obtain the compensation they need and the justice they deserve. He was born in Washington and raised in Evansville and has lived in here most of his life. Attorney Heath A. Tuley has been practicing law since 2010, originally as a deputy prosecuting attorney in Vanderburgh County. He joined the personal injury practice at the Tuley Law Office in 2014.

When you become our client at the Tuley Law Office, you’ll pay no attorneys’ fees unless and until we recover compensation on your behalf. We review every detail of your case, answer your questions and address your legal concerns, and settle for nothing less than fair and full reimbursement for your medical bills, lost wages, and all of your other injury-related damages. We work conscientiously to negotiate a fair settlement outside of the courtroom, but when a settlement simply is not available, we will not hesitate to take your case to court and fight aggressively there on your behalf.

At the Tuley Law Office, every client and prospective client is treated with courtesy, consideration, and respect. An Evansville personal injury attorney will explain precisely how Indiana law applies to your case, and we will keep you fully informed as your personal injury claim moves through the various legal hurdles. We conduct all of the discussions and negotiations with whomever you name as a defendant, with that party’s insurance company, and with his or her attorney or attorneys. We handle personal injury cases including but not limited to:

TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS

personal injury3Seek medical treatment at once if you are involved in a traffic accident. Get the name, address, driver’s license number, and insurance information of the other driver (or drivers) as well as names and contact information for any eyewitnesses. Try to take photographs – or have photos taken – of your visible injuries, the crash site, and the vehicle damages. Make and keep copies of all of the paperwork and reports – medical bills, test results, accident reports, and anything else that’s on paper – related to the accident and injury.

Tuley Law represents those injured by negligent drivers in automobile, bus, truck, taxi, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents. We also advocate on behalf of those injured in railway, boating, and aviation accidents. If you’ve been injured in any type of traffic collision, seek medical attention first – meaning immediately – and then contact a personal injury lawyer at the Tuley Law Office as quickly as possible.

SLIP-AND-FALL ACCIDENTS

Landlords and property owners have a legal obligation to keep their properties safe and hazard-free. The Tuley Law Office represents the victims of slip-and-fall accidents, falling merchandise, snow-and-ice related injuries, dog bites and other animal attacks, and other injuries sustained on private properties. We will determine how and why the accident happened, assess the full extent of your personal injuries, provide the sound legal advice you’ll need, and fight passionately for the compensation you deserve.

WORKPLACE INJURIES

Construction workers sustain more on-the-job injuries and fatalities than those doing any other type of work in the United States, but the construction industry had no monopoly on work-related injuries. In the state of Indiana, on-the-job injuries are typically covered by the workers’ compensation system, but if someone other than an employer or a co-worker caused you to be injured on the job, you may be entitled to more than workers’ compensation.

If you are injured at your job by dangerous chemicals or by defective tools, machinery, or equipment, you may have legal recourse – a product liability claim – against the manufacturer. A personal injury lawyer at the Tuley Law Office can review the matter and discuss your potential legal options and alternatives.

CATASTROPHIC AND PERMANENT INJURIES

The most catastrophic personal injuries – spinal cord injuries, lost limbs, and traumatic brain injuries, for example – require the maximum available financial compensation for what may be a lifetime of care. Daniel and Heath Tuley fight on behalf of those injured by negligence who have sustained catastrophic and/or permanent injuries including traumatic brain injuries, severe burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and injuries requiring amputation. We will fight aggressively to win all of the resources that catastrophically and permanently injured clients require.

WRONGFUL DEATH

When a family member suddenly and unexpectedly dies in an accident caused by the negligence of another person or persons, Tuley Law will fight aggressively for the rights of the surviving family members. As difficult as it will be at a time of grief, if your family loses a loved one because another person was negligent, it is imperative to speak with an attorney at the Tuley Law Office and obtain sound legal advice. We help surviving family members acquire the compensation they need to cover unanticipated expenses, avoid financial hardship, and move forward constructively with their lives.
