Fort Wayne Personal Injury Lawyer Fights for Victims’ Compensation


Suffering an injury due to someone else’s carelessness hurts you in a variety of ways. In addition to the physical harm associated with an accident, medical bills and missed time from work could trigger a family financial crisis. Even if you believe that you’re entitled to reimbursement from a negligent party, the system can seem stacked against victims. Patterson Law LLC battles on behalf of plaintiffs throughout the Fort Wayne, Indiana area. In cases stemming from car crashes, falls and other harmful events that can be linked to an at-fault individual or business, we know what type of compensation plaintiffs deserve and fight for a full financial recovery in every case.


Getting hurt in an auto accident can have serious consequences for you and your family. Our experience with Indiana’s legal and insurance systems helps injured individuals vigorously pursue payment from insurance carriers and in court. We can also advise you on the special considerations affecting claims involving:

  • Trucks — Commercial vehicles pose a serious threat to those they share the road with, which is why large trucks and their operators are subject to special rules. In these cases, our firm looks beyond the police report to identify any violations that led to the crash.
  • Motorcycles — Distracted driving and a failure to understand the laws protecting motorcycle riders contribute to serious injuries. If you were struck while riding, our firm will fight to hold the negligent driver accountable.
  • Pedestrians — Cars and trucks are capable of causing devastating, even fatal harm to unsuspecting pedestrians. When a walker is struck by a vehicle, we work to find the truth about what occurred.
  • Slip and falls — Stores, restaurants and even privately owned residences must be maintained to protect visitors from sustaining slip and fall injuries. If you have been hurt because someone did not take reasonable care of their premises, we will press for appropriate relief.
  • Dog bites — Indiana pet owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by their animals. This means that if you were the victim of a dog bite, you can recover damages even if the defendant had no idea that their animal was dangerous.
  • Traumatic brain injuries — Vehicle crashes, falls and other incidents in which the head is suddenly struck or the brain is otherwise jostled could trigger traumatic brain injuries. Unlike broken bones or other types of harm, the effects of a head injury might not be immediately apparent, so we consult with experts to help determine what type of payment is appropriate to cover the long-term damage.
  • Wrongful deaths — When a wrongful death is caused by someone else’s act or omission, the personal representative of the victim’s estate can initiate a lawsuit seeking reimbursement for funeral costs and wages that the decedent would have been likely to earn during their lifetime.

An injured victim has only two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. However, even waiting a couple of months could lessen the chance of locating key witnesses or evidence that supports your claim. Our firm offers an initial consultation and will get to work immediately on your case.


Potential damages in a personal injury case can include reimbursement for medical bills, lost income and rehabilitation expenses. You might also be able to obtain payment to address your pain and suffering associated with the injury, as well as any permanent disfigurement or loss of function. Attorney Rex Patterson is an aggressive legal advocate who battles to maximize the recovery for plaintiffs in verdicts and settlements stemming from:

Under Indiana law, a plaintiff can collect damages even if they were partially responsible for their injury as long as the defendant bore a greater share of the fault. Don’t be afraid to assert your rights even if someone else is trying to put the blame on you. We’ll investigate the incident thoroughly and push back against those who are trying to deny you proper compensation.
