We can assist clients in many different types of traffic accident cases, including:

Fort Wayne Slip and Fall Lawyer

A slip and fall can leave you with severe injuries that require expensive medical treatment, prevent you from working and cause a great deal of physical and emotional pain and suffering. If a property owner’s negligence caused you to suffer this harm, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages.

Our Fort Wayne slip and fall lawyers want to help you.

Truitt Law Offices has a deep background in handling these unique premises liability cases.

We know how these incidents can cause victims to suffer catastrophic injuries such as:

A victim may sustain a fracture, torn ligaments or spinal damage ranging from a strained lower back to loss of sensation and movement in the limbs, or paralysis. When a slip and fall victim is an elderly adult, a hip fracture and related complications can raise heightened concern.

You may be entitled to compensation if a property owner or occupier such as a tenant negligently caused your slip, trip or fall. Truitt Law Offices can gather and analyze evidence that may establish that the owner or occupier:

  • Knew of an unsafe property condition, and
  • Failed to act by fixing the condition or warning visitors about the hazard.

Examples of unsafe conditions include:

  • Construction site hazards
  • Accumulation of snow and ice
  • Wet, greasy or otherwise slippery surfaces
  • Loose tiles, rugs or carpeting

  • Defective handrails
  • Poor lighting
  • Broken or uneven surfaces
  • Holes in the floor or ground.

At Truitt Law Offices, we know how insurance companies often try to blame victims for slip and falls. For instance, the insurer may claim that you walked into an “open and obvious” hazard. You can count on us to vigorously challenge any attempts to diminish or deny your claim.

Our goal is simple: We want to maximize the value of your financial recovery.

Fort Wayne Broken Bone Lawyer

Many of the personal injury victims we assist have suffered fractures due to the negligence of others.

Our Fort Wayne broken bone injury lawyers understand the seriousness of these injuries and the toll they can exact on our clients’ lives.

A fracture in the neck, back, rib, hip, legs or arms can result in a long-term or permanent disability. A victim may need extensive medical treatment, including orthopedic surgery, casts and rehabilitation. The situation can become even more harrowing if the fracture leads to an infection, ligament damage or nerve damage, or if the fracture causes permanent scarring and disfigurement.

As a result of a broken bone (or multiple fractures), a victim may miss a long period of work or be unable to do same job that he or she held before. It can cause a great deal of emotional and financial stress.

Fractures can occur due to motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls and construction site accidents, including falls from a ladder, scaffolding or other heights. In many cases, these are preventable accidents. They are caused by the careless and reckless acts of others.

Truitt Law Offices will thoroughly investigate your case and determine who should be held legally responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and all other harm you have sustained due to your fracture. We will seek full compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance company or, if necessary, fight for you in the courtroom.

Our ultimate goal will be to help you to move past your broken bone injury and get your life back on the right track.

Fort Wayne Wrongful Death Lawyer

No amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one. Still, by taking legal action, you can seek the answers you deserve, compensation which can provide financial stability for your family and closure to a painful chapter in your life.

The Fort Wayne wrongful death lawyers of Truitt Law Offices have helped many families throughout Northeastern Indiana to pursue justice following the loss of a family member.

When you are ready to take legal action, make us your first call.

A wrongful death claim is, in many ways, similar to a personal injury lawsuit. It requires establishing that another person’s negligence caused the death. However, it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the important differences between a wrongful death case and other types of cases.

For instance, under Indiana law, only certain types of damages can be sought:

For the victim’s estate – Medical expenses incurred before the victim’s death and funeral and burial expenses
For the victim’s surviving spouse and children – Loss of income and benefits the victim would have likely earned if he or she had not been killed.

Although your pain and suffering may be significant due to your loved one’s loss, those damages cannot be sought in a wrongful death claim.

If the wrongful death victim is a child, however, the parents can seek a recovery of all medical, funeral and burial expenses as well as damages for:

Loss of the child’s love, services and companionship
Costs of grief-related counseling for the parents and for the child’s siblings.

It is also important to focus on the statute of limitations that applies to Indiana wrongful death claims, or the amount of time that you have to file a lawsuit.

While the time limit in most personal injury cases is two years from the date of the accident, the limit in wrongful death cases is two years from the date of death.

You can count on Truitt Law Offices to stand by your side and fight for the justice your family deserves. Contact us today to discuss your case in a free consultation.
