What Can You Expect When You Work with Our Wabash Personal Injury Law Firm?
At Truitt Law Offices, we work hard to make a difference in our clients’ lives. We know that our clients are already the victims of another person’s negligence. We stop the insurance companies from victimizing them a second time.
If you contact us about your personal injury or wrongful death case, we will provide a free and confidential consultation. We will get to know what happened to you, and you will be free to ask us questions, too. For instance, many people want to know:
- How long will my case take?
- Will I need to go to court?
- What can I recover in damages?
- How much does a lawyer cost?
If we agree to work together, Truitt Law Offices will provide many benefits, including identifying all potential sources of compensation for you. For instance, in addition to personal injury damages, you may also be eligible to pursue a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, we will:
- Help you to file a claim for the repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Coordinate your medical bills and work with creditors
- Investigate your case in an efficient and thorough manner
- Consult with experts to prepare your case, including medical experts, vocational rehabilitation experts, life-care planners and accident reconstruction experts
- Demand a settlement from the insurance company (or companies) involved in your case
- Pursue your claim in the appropriate court such as:
Wabash County Superior Court
69 West Hill Street
Wabash, IN 46992
Although many of our clients obtain compensation through settlements, our legal team will be ready to take your case to trial if it is necessary. Throughout your case, we will always be available to answer your questions and update you. We believe that it is crucial to work closely with our clients and to have an open and honest attorney-client relationship with them.
We represent our clients on a contingency fee basis. So, unless we obtain a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you will owe us nothing. Contact us today to learn more. Don’t wait – the Indiana statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of an accident (two years from the date of death if you pursue a wrongful death claim). If you fail to get timely legal help, it could cost you the right to a recovery. Contact our Wabash County personal injury lawyer today!

- Get medical attention. For the sake of your health, you need to get checked for injuries. For your legal claim, you will also need to have timely documentation of your injuries.
- Collect your information. You should gather receipts of any expenses related to your accident, including medical bills, as well as any accident scene photos, witness names and letters or e-mails that you have exchanged with the insurance company.
- Order your accident report. You can get a copy of the report by going to BuyCrash.com or by contacting the law enforcement agency that responded to your crash. Law enforcement agencies that serve Wabash County include:

- Report the crash to your insurance company. You should give notice about your crash to your own insurance company. In fact, your policy may require you to report it within a specific time period.
- Don’t talk with the other driver’s insurance company. If the other driver’s insurer calls, you should refer the insurer to your lawyer at Truitt Law Offices. You should never give a statement, allow access to your medical records or accept a settlement offer before you talk with a lawyer first.
