If you’ve been in a car wreck in Evansville or Southern Indiana, you may try to represent yourself to determine if a fair settlement can be reached before you hire an attorney. Insurance companies are on the lookout for this so they can take advantage. For instance, you may be in regular contact with a friendly insurance adjuster, who asks for updates on your injury and copies of medical bills. But then, all of a sudden, your phone calls aren’t returned. You then have to ask yourself why the insurance company stopped returning your calls.
Why would the insurance company ignore you all of a sudden? One answer is that you may be nearing the two year statute of limitations for most personal injury cases. If you’re reading this website, you probably already know that you usually lose your right to sue someone for a personal injury after two years. But do you know how to file a civil lawsuit in Vanderburgh Circuit or Superior Court? Or in Warrick County, Gibson County, or Posey County? Do you know that you have to issue and summons within that same deadline? Do you know the present whereabouts of the person you have to sue? If you’re suing a restaurant, do you even know if you’re suing the right party?
Insurance companies stop communicating with you because they are banking on the possibility that you won’t know the answers to these questions, and thus lose your right to sue the person who caused your injuries.
