Anyone can be seriously injured in a wreck, but older drivers face an even greater risk. Senior citizens involved in traffic accidents are more likely to suffer serious injuries or have chronic pain caused by the accident.

No family wants to give up their home following a divorce. It can hold a lot of financial and personal value to the owners, as well as any children who grew up in it. When dividing your marital assets during an Indiana divorce, you will need to determine the value of your house, and any other real estate, and come to terms on how it will be divided between you and your soon-to-be-ex.
When you first start looking at an auto insurance policy, your first question will be, “How much is this going to cost me?” Auto insurance rates can fluctuate due to many factors, but the real value of these policies is how they can help you in a collision.

Making the decision to end a marriage is difficult and comes with many responsibilities. You will need to identify all of your martial assets, determine how to divide your property, come to terms on a custody agreement, and fulfill certain requirements under Indiana state law.

Following an auto accident, your biggest goal is getting your bills paid and to get back on your feet. You may hope that you can quickly file a claim online or over the phone with the other driver’s insurance to get compensation immediately. Insurances companies like to say it is an easy and seamless process — for them, at least.
One of the first questions we get when meeting with clients is, “How do I pay my medical bills?” Most people do not have significant savings or health insurance to cover an emergency room visit on top of the costs of repairing a vehicle, taking time off work to see doctors, and getting any long-term treatment. A single collision can come with a massive stack of bills that set you back months to years as you struggle to recover. However, if you were injured by a negligent driver, then you may have a car accident claim against that driver’s insurance company. In order to get the most out of your claim, you should work with an experienced personal injury attorney who understands how to tell your story effectively.
Many people have children and choose not to get married for a variety of reasons, ranging from a lack of romantic interest to personal preferences regarding relationships. Whatever the parents’ reason, raising a child outside of marriage can create some confusion regarding custody rights.

It is important for Indiana parents to understand their rights in family court and to work with an experienced Carmel family lawyer to ensure they do not receive an unfair custody deal.
