Evansville, Indiana is located in the southernmost part of the state along the Ohio River and is an active metropolitan area as it borders Kentucky and Illinois. It is the 3rd largest city in Indiana with a population of 118,000. Evansville and the tri-state area that surrounds it have become a regional center for industry and trade. Evansville itself has set itself apart as the Tri-State's major center for healthcare with large hospital groups Deaconess Health Systems and St. Vincent Evansville. Evansville is also home to University of Southern Indiana and one of Indiana University Medical School’s campuses.
Due to Evansville’s location on the Ohio River combined with its strong rail and highway infrastructure, our Indiana personal injury lawyer explains, it is an ideal hub for the transportation and the transport of cargo. Business, commuter, and residential traffic can therefore create congestion along Evansville’s busy roadways leading to serious accidents. Evansville’s most highly trafficked roadways include Highway 41, State Road 66 (The Lloyd Expressway), and Interstate 69. However, we have also handled several cases on smaller roadways in Evansville like the case described below.
Evansville Bicycle v. Car Case
The team at Keller & Keller received a phone call from a mother whose son had been struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle. He was near Columbia and Main Street in Evansville when the Adverse vehicle attempted to turn left on a red light and struck her son in the crosswalk.
The resulting collision left our client with multiple abrasions to his face, arms, knuckles, side, and shoulders. Emergency medical services quickly took our client to Deaconess Hospital where he was treated for his injuries and referred to orthopedic follow-up care.
Anytime a case involves an automobile vs. a pedestrian or bicycle, the insurance company will aggressively try to place all or most of the fault on the victim. With that fact in mind, our team made it a priority to obtain the police report and all investigative materials from the Evansville Police Department so that we could locate a witness. Fortunately, from the information obtained, our attorney was able to locate a witness and get a statement solidifying the case for our client.
The team of attorneys at Keller & Keller was able to settle this case for an amount that not only covered all of our clients' medical bills, but also awarded him pain and suffering and a new bike.
