Experienced advocate provides trustworthy counsel for car, truck and motorcycle accident victims

According to the Indiana University Public Policy Institute, Allen County ranked third in the state for the number of persons involved in motor vehicle accidents in 2018, with 22,244. The county recorded 33 fatalities, 1,173 incapacitating injuries and 2,193 non-incapacitating injuries. As the seat of Allen County, Fort Wayne was the location for the lion’s share of these crashes. The same year, pedestrians and bicyclists accounted for less than one percent of people involved in Indiana traffic collisions but made up 16 percent of the state’s total traffic deaths. We represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists in all sorts of vehicle accident claims arising from:

  • Rear-end collisions — Tailgating, brake failure, and speeding are common causes of rear-end collisions that cause serious injuries, such as whiplash.
  • Side-impact collisions — T-bone crashes that occur at intersections can cause severe trauma. Causes include distractive behavior that prevents drivers from noticing stop signs and traffic signals.
  • Vehicle rollovers — Sharp turns, especially in high winds, can cause large trucks to roll over, especially if cargo has been improperly loaded.
  • Head-on collisions — These deadliest of crashes occur when drivers stray over the line on undivided highways or enter a way through on off-ramp. The cause is usually impairment due to alcohol, drugs or lack of sleep.

Our firm has handled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death cases where we’ve had to prove another party was at fault. We consult qualified accident reconstruction experts to build a solid case for causation. We also consult medical experts to get a clear picture of the extent of our clients’ injuries, so we know what a fair damage award would be.

Knowledgeable counselor guides Allen County clients through vehicle accident claims

Most auto accident cases begin with an insurance claim. Indiana uses a fault-based system, which means the first step is to file a claim with the at-fault driver but this places you in an adversarial relationship with the company you’re asking to solve your problem. If you have severe injuries, or if the extent of your injuries is uncertain, the insurer will likely pressure you to settle quickly for a lump sum that may appear large but will hardly cover your future medical bills and your future economic losses or compensate you for your pain and suffering. If you refuse initially, the company is prepared to use all sorts of tactics to wear you down so you will accept a settlement for far less than your injuries are worth.

The better approach is to retain a reputable injury attorney immediately after your accident. Patterson Law provides highly professional and determined representation with proven strategies adapted to the facts of your case. You can rely on us to pursue a course carefully calculated to deliver optimum results.
