- Hire the Right Lawyers and Cooperate – Shaw Law, Indiana’s Slip and Fall Attorneys
You’ve fallen at a store or in parking lot and you are embarrassed. You quickly look around to see if anyone saw you, hoping that nobody witnessed your fall. It’s so humiliating. Your face is turning red and you’ve dropped what you were holding in your hands. Then, you begin to notice that your back is starting to ache, your head is starting to throb, or your leg or ankle doesn’t feel quite right. As you start to try to push yourself up off the ground, the pain worsens.
Now, you wish someone was around to help you. That’s when you see the water, the ice, or the item on the ground that caused your fall. You didn’t know it was there. There were no warning signs or cones to tell you that danger was lurking. You start to get angry. Why should you be the one who must pay the medical bills that are coming? Why must your family be without your income for a lengthy amount of time?

Many Indiana car accidents are caused by drivers failing to yield properly when they enter and exit highways. Drivers often just do not understand their duties to other vehicles on the road and are blissfully unaware that anyone entering a highway must yield to oncoming traffic and use appropriate caution.
