Indiana Torts (personal injuries) give an Injured Person Only 2 Years to File a Lawsuit

Many people are afraid to file a lawsuit.

They think it is a form of "causing trouble" so they learn to live with their pain.  Then later, they discover they can no longer live the life-changing effects of the slip and fall (or other) injury and contact a lawyer -- only to find out it's too late to pursue the claim because it's been more than 2 years since the date of the injury-causing occurrence.

You don't have to file a lawsuit to recover compensation.  In fact, statistics show that most people settle their claim with an insurance company without filing a lawsuit.  But, failure to file the lawsuit within 2 years bars and estops (prevents/ends) your ability to seek compensation later.

The best thing to do is see an attorney right away.  Let the attorney handle the claims process.

We've found that when it comes to slip and falls, the best thing to do is to file a lawsuit as quickly as possible.

That's because 99.9% of all slip and falls are denied by the insurance company for the landowner anyway.  Trying to settle an "un-settle-able" case for nearly 2 years and then filing a lawsuit just delays matters.  

And like the famous saying by Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "Justice delayed is justice denied."
