A serious personal injury can radically alter your life.

You also know the frustration you feel when you don’t have someone fighting on your side to obtain compensation for all you’ve suffered. For more than 30 years, Marshall P. Whalley & Associates, PC has fought for victims of serious accidents throughout Indiana, winning several dozen multimillion-dollar recoveries.

Pursuing full compensation for serious injuries throughout Indiana
Our attorneys are committed to pursuing the maximum settlement or jury award possible for your injuries. We fully investigate your accident to gather the evidence to prove liability and then hold the responsible parties accountable. The value of your case hinges on the severity and permanence of your injuries. Damages you may collect include:
- Medical expenses, past and future
- Lost earnings, past and future
- Costs of physical and occupational therapy
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of consortium
- Costs of modifying a home to accommodate disabilities
- Physical pain
- Mental suffering
- Emotional distress
In cases of severe injury, defendants and their insurance company resist paying the full value of the claim and often delay proceedings to wear a plaintiff down, adding to the time and expense of litigation. Fortunately, we have the resources to take your case through trial. Additionally, since our firm works on a contingency fee basis, you pay no legal fees until we recover compensation for you.
Indiana state law sets a strict deadline to act on your rights
The Indiana statute of limitations — the time within which you can bring a lawsuit — is two years from the date of the injury. Many factors can influence how the time is measured. For example, the statute is paused when a victim is incapacitated, as in a coma, and starts again when the victim regains capacity. We can explain how the rules apply to you.
