Indiana is a place of cross-national conversion with our long highways and proximity to cities and trucking hubs. Auto collisions are not uncommon, and can lead to minor or severe injuries, and in some cases death. Many car and auto accidents can be avoided simply by being an attentive driver. But if you or a loved one has suffered because of a driver’s negligent behavior, WKW is here to help.
An Indianapolis auto accident lawyer from WKW can help assess liability and represent you. Let us help build a successful auto accident case so that your focus can be centered on your wellbeing.
Birth injuries are life-altering, tragic events that, in many cases, can be avoided. Birth injuries may be caused by the negligence of a medical professional during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. There are several different issues that may occur, including:
With proper care, most birth injuries are preventable. Our nationally recognized birth injury attorneys can represent you in your fight for justice after an unwarranted, unnecessary birth injury.
People working on farms often use heavy machinery, such as tractors, combines, augers, and other farm equipment. Because of the sheer size of these machines and the different substances needed for appropriate farming, injuries can take place. Farming accidents sustained while using these devices can lead to someone losing a limb—or worse.
Sometimes, farming accidents aren’t caused by machinery, but rather by chemicals used in the fields, including herbicides, pesticides, and ammonia. Many times, farm accident injuries are the result of faulty equipment. In these unfortunate cases, the experienced farm accident attorneys at WKW are here to represent you in these complicated cases. Contact Chris Stevenson, our attorney who has lived on a farm and has handled a variety of farming cases.
Aviation accidents can occur on private, military, and commercial planes, as well as on helicopters. Even the best pilots sometimes plan poorly or decide to fly despite bad weather. But not all crashes are because of the pilot, as machinery can also fail. WKW staffs two licensed pilots who hold commercial licenses and more, making our team uniquely qualified to represent you in your aviation accident injury case.
A workplace accident occurs during the course of a workday and can lead to physical or mental injury. Workplace accidents include slips, falls, muscle strains, falling objects, collisions, cuts, or even the inhalation of toxic fumes.
The attorneys here at WKW can help you with all types of workplace accident cases, or refer you to a workers compensation attorney if appropriate. Reach out to an Indianapolis work injury lawyer today if you or a loved one has experienced harm due to an occupational accident.
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a blow to the head and can forever change the injured person’s brain function. The severity of injury can range from a concussion, to coma, and even death.
A brain injury may not always be apparent immediately after an accident. Sometimes what appears to be a mild concussion can have long-lasting effects. It is also possible to experience an acquired brain injury, which results from pressure on the brain. Tumors and other neurological illnesses are often the cause of acquired brain injuries.
Brain injuries are not congenital, degenerative, or hereditary. They are oftentimes the result of negligence and can have long-lasting, traumatic effects, including vision impairment and seizures, among other symptoms. WKW will help you get the compensation you deserve after suffering from a brain injury.
Falls, car accidents, sports injuries, or even bullet wounds can result in spinal cord injuries. These are all brutal accidents that may cause pain, loss of movement, and/or disability. Spinal cord injuries can be severe.
Not only are spine injuries life-altering, but medical bills and treatment costs can start to add up quickly. Spinal cord injury cases have been one of our primary practice areas for decades. Contact the attorneys at WKW right away for help evaluating your situation.
Premises liability claims occur when a tenant’s visitor is injured due to negligence on the part of the property owner. As a result, you may suffer physically, emotionally, and/or financially. If you have experienced this type of situation, you may be entitled to compensation for the damage that has occurred. Premises liability claims can include exposure to toxic/hazardous substances, slip and fall accidents, fires and explosions, and more. The experienced attorneys at WKW can help build a strong case needed for premise liability.
Most people regularly purchase products both online and in stores, trusting that these products are safe. But sometimes, dangerous defects can put you at risk. This is because companies don’t always do their due diligence to ensure their products’ integrity. Product liability can cover products such as pharmaceutical products, clothing, recreational equipment, and much more.
Often, multiple people across your town, state, or even the country as a whole will face the same injuries from the same product. You should always seek the advice of a knowledgeable attorney in the case of a defective product that did you harm. When a company has failed to provide you with safe products, reach out to the experienced attorneys at WKW.
At some point, many of us will face the decision as to whether or not we place a loved one in a nursing home. The elderly often need an extra level of care that most people can’t provide in-home.
Unfortunately, some nursing home residents don’t get the level of care they deserve—or they may be completely neglected. Many nursing homes are understaffed, and sometimes staff are not adequately trained. Your loved ones deserve the best care and may be eligible for compensation if they are injured or killed as a result of the nursing home’s negligence.
If you suspect or know that your loved one has suffered injuries or death from nursing home abuse and neglect, let us know right away. Your loved ones deserve the best care, and any type of abuse and negligence is unacceptable.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of another party’s negligence, contact one of our Wilson Kehoe Winingham Indianapolis personal injury lawyers. We have decades of experience in many types of injury cases in Indianapolis and greater Indiana. Our attorneys can help you get the compensation you deserve.
