Stay Safe & Be Prepared

Most residents of Lake County wake up every morning and drive to work, drop the kids off at school, run errands, or even take the occasional road trip. We are surrounded by other drivers, many of which choose to make unsafe choices while driving.

There were over 10 million auto accidents in the U.S. in 2012, thousands of which resulted in serious injuries or fatalities. As you can see by these staggering statistics, it is important to stay safe and aware while driving and to be prepared if you are in an accident.

Negligence is usually the cause of motor vehicle accidents, meaning a driver was reckless or unsafe. Examples of this include ignoring traffic laws and signs, speeding, talking on the phone, texting, eating, or any other distracting activity.

Wrongful Death

It is impossible to describe the grief felt by those who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident. That grief is intensified when someone’s negligence causes the loss.

Our goal is to bring our clients comfort and peace of mind. Providing compassionate, caring service, we’ll do everything we can to help you move forward and prepare for the future.

Wrongful death compensation cannot replace a loved one. No amount of money could ever accomplish that. In calculating a settlement to support you and your family in the future, the law relies on a few damages:

  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of life’s enjoyment, the ultimate loss
  • Medical and burial expenses
  • The victim’s pain and suffering before death
  • Survivors’ inability to carry on activities that they did before

Typically this compensation is paid by the insurance company. In litigation, insurance companies often make unreasonable offers. The insurance companies try to minimize the survivors’ future needs instead of decreasing the amount of money they have to pay.

You can only stand up to these tactics with the help of an experienced attorney. We strongly encourage anyone who lost a loved one to hire a lawyer as soon as you can, even if it is not our firm. Any delay could hurt your case.

We believe that legal service is about more than just winning big settlements. It is about helping people who are going through one of the toughest times of their lives. Our attorneys strive to form meaningful, lasting relationships with clients.

We will work hard to hold people and companies responsible for injuries caused by their carelessness. To schedule a free consultation at the Law Office of Paul Rossi in Lowell, Indiana for death litigation, call (219) 690-1200 or contact us online today.

Anyone who owns a property is responsible for keeping that property safe. That means keeping the property up-to-code and promptly clearing hazards. However, sometimes conditions are not maintained or allowed to deteriorate, which is when people slip and fall.

Injuries from a fall can derail your life and cause long-term impairment. At the Law Office of Paul Rossi, LLC, we help restore clients’ peace of mind and prepare for what’s to come.

Detailed Aspects of Indiana Law Code

Indiana has numerous laws regarding premises liability. Dangerous property can cause serious injuries. Often slip and fall accidents result in fractures like a broken ankle, wrist, tibia, fibula, or humerus.

Accidents typically involve:

  • Defective stairs and railings
  • Snow and ice
  • Parking lot defects
  • Old buildings that are not up to code
  • Inadequate lighting

We handle the most severe dog bite cases. We have represented adults and children who suffered injuries such as:

Infection: Dog bites can lead to terrible infections requiring intensive long-term treatment.

Trucking Accidents

Every truck accident has the potential to be catastrophic. Strict federal regulations have been created to keep these accidents from ever happening. When one does happen, those regulations were likely violated.

Because trucks on the road are so massive, injuries from truck accidents are often disabling or fatal. If your life has changed, the Law Office of Paul Rossi, LLC can help you prepare for the future.

  • Brain and spinal cord injury
  • Amputations
  • Broken bones and injured joints

For most truck accidents, the cause is rooted in negligence either on the truck driver or the trucking company. Was the driver tired from working too many hours? Did the truck receive routine inspections? Was it properly maintained?

We conduct a thorough investigation to find out precisely what went wrong. We have many experts that work with us in analyzing the defects in the trucks that caused the accidents.

We strongly recommend that you hire a lawyer as soon as possible. The insurance company is already building a case. The longer you wait, the greater the chance that the important information will be lost.
