How to handle a dog bite incident

A dog bite incident can occur at any time in Indiana to anyone. It may involve a wild dog or someone’s family pet. At Gardner & Rans PC, we see victims of all ages and situations of all types. Not every dog must be provoked to attack. If a dog is known to be aggressive, it could attack if you just walk by it. If an attack occurs, you should seek medical attention immediately and the proper authorities need to be contacted.

America’s most common construction site injuries

If you make a living as a construction worker in Indiana, you face hazards every time you clock in for the workday. The very nature of your position puts you at risk for a broad range of injuries, but your chances of suffering certain types of injuries are higher than they are for others.

Why seniors are more likely to slip and fall

As an Indiana senior, you run a higher risk of suffering a seriously injury from a slip-and-fall accident than the state’s younger citizens.

Understanding burn injuries

Burn injuries may be caused by a variety of factors, and they have a varying level of physical and psychological impact on victims. While most people in Indiana have experienced a minor burn at some point in their lives, some endure more severe injuries which have a profound effect on their future. According to Heathline, there are four levels of burns. First- and second-degree burns result in irritation, pain and inconvenience, but they can generally be treated at home. These burns typically heal within a matter of days with little to no long-lasting effect. It should be noted, however, that all burn injuries have the potential to develop infection, possibly even tetanus. Therefore, every burn should be treated carefully.

How to recognize the signs of traumatic brain injury

A traumatic brain injury can have a devastating impact on both victims as well as their loved ones. Accordingly, families in Indiana must know what signs and symptoms to look for in the event of a significant head injury. Swift action is crucial to mitigate damage as much as possible, as well as prevent even more harmful effects from occurring.

Understanding the different types of product defects

If product recalls are any indication, you probably understand that there are many hazardous products on the market.

What Are Your Rights Under Indiana Wrongful Death Law?

A fatal accident can take the life of a loved one unexpectedly, creating tremendous emotional loss and leaving the family without financial support. When death occurs as the result of another person's negligence or wrongdoing, you have the right to pursue a wrongful death action. Wrongful death statutes vary from state to state. The party who can pursue compensation, and the damages that can be recovered, depend on state laws. Gardner & Rans P.C. can assist in evaluating your particular situation, and help determine what rights you or your family may have in pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit under Indiana law.

Premises Liability: Who is Responsible for My Injuries?

When you enter the property of another, you expect to be safe. If you sustain injuries on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation from the at-fault party. Premises liability is an area of law designed to hold owners and occupiers responsible for injuries which occur on their property. A premises liability accident could happen in a commercial building, on public property, or a private or rented home. If you are injured in a slip and fall, or other type of premises liability accident, contact the premises liability lawyers at Gardner & Rans P.C. for assistance.

How Do You Know If You Have a Personal Injury Case?

Not all injuries meet the requirements for pursuing a personal injury case. The most important factor is whether someone else's negligence or wrongdoing caused the injury. The best way to find out whether you have a viable case is to consult a personal injury lawyer to discuss your case. The attorneys at Gardner & Rans P.C., offer a free consultation to discuss and evaluate potential legal action. Learning about your potential to pursue legal recourse is well worth your time if you can recover compensation for your injuries.
