Seven-year-old Samantha Allen's accident left her with a C-1 spinal cord injury that changed her life. It also would change the lives of others in a big way.
Samantha Allen was 7-years-old when she was struck by an oncoming car that failed to see her as she attempted to cross the street to play with her sister and another friend at a neighbor’s home. The impact was severe, throwing Samantha an estimated 50 to 70 feet through the air before she hit the ground. The resulting injuries were traumatic, and would require the help of a spinal cord injury lawyer. Samantha was rushed to Riley’s ICU where it was discovered that she had suffered a C-1 spinal cord injury (similar to that of the famous actor and spinal cord injury activist Christopher Reeves) and broken femur requiring ORIF, among several other non-life threatening injuries. The damage inflicted by the C-1 injury upon Samantha’s spine was so severe that she would require ongoing medical treatment for the rest of her life. There were several factors that were sure to make the Allens’ case extremely complicated, some of which included liability concerns, limited insurance coverage to adequately compensate the family, and the inevitable costs that would be associated with Samantha’s ongoing, lifetime care. Keller & Keller made use of the firm’s resources to locate potential sources of recovery, and after months of building Samantha’s case, her case settled. In most instances this is usually where our involvement in a case comes to a conclusion. This wasn’t a usual case. Throughout the duration of the case, Jim Keller would often find himself thinking about Samantha and her family. He knew no amount of compensation would ever justify the Allens’ experience and he wanted to do something special for the young girl and her family. And knowing that Samantha would require in-house therapy and the aid of a fully-motorized scooter for the rest of her life, it seemed as if she and her family had suddenly outgrown their existing home. The result? The Samantha’s House Foundation.Samantha
"I want to sincerely express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to your law firm and to Keith Gora. He personally gave my case his best."
Denise was driving eastbound on State Road 62 (SR 62) in Madison, Indiana, approaching Franks Drive at the same time a westbound driver on SR 62 was also approaching Franks Drive. The westbound driver attempted to turn left onto Franks Drive, failing to yield the right of way to Denise, causing a high-speed collision. Denise suffered three (3) metacarpal fractures in her left hand as well as a puncture wound to her left leg and fractures to her right and left elbows. Denise was an LPN at the time of her accident, studying to be an RN, and immediately went to the other vehicle to try and help one of the passengers in the adverse vehicle who suffered traumatic injuries after striking the car’s windshield. Despite her efforts, and those of the emergency responders, the woman’s injuries proved fatal. Denise suffered extreme emotional distress as a result of witnessing the woman’s passing. Denise would undergo months of treatment and therapy for her injuries as well as counseling for the emotional trauma caused by the accident. Denise began to look at her options after realizing the insurance company may try to limit her claim based on liability disputes often associated with intersection-style accidents. She also knew that her injuries were serious enough that it would probably make good sense to at least consult with some attorneys. After speaking with one of our attorneys to get an opinion on her case, she immediately signed our contingent fee retainer agreement and became a client. Ultimately, we were able to settle her case. Transcribed letter from client: Mr. Keller 2850 North Meridian St. Indianapolis, IN 46208 Dear Mr. Keller: I want to sincerely express my gratitude and heartfelt thanks to your law firm and to Keith Gora. He personally gave my case his best. I was the victim in a terrible, fatal car accident that put me out of work, and on assistance to live when my marriage almost failed due to the hardships we were enduring. Medical bills piled up and my student loan was in default, which meant that after a long year of healing and restoration and passing the tests to get into nursing school—I could not get the loan to attend. I am an LPN returning to school for an Associate Degree of Science in Nursing to be a Registered Nurse. This was my last chance to do this, as all of my previous classes would be past the timeline if I waited just one more semester to start. Keith Gora at Keller & Keller in Indianapolis, IN worked long hours and gave my case top priority. On 4/14/09 @ 9:00 a.m. I pulled into Nursing School on my first day of orientation with $200.00 borrowed, to pay for uniforms, with tears in my eyes not knowing how I ws going to pay for school. At 9:27 a.m. my fervent prayers were answered! As I was about to get out of the car and go into school, Keith called, and with my authorization, settled the case with the insurance company for more than enough money to pay for school tuition and books! His diligence and dedication to his job and this client has been such a blessing to my education, my marriage and my life! My student ID at the top of this letter is only in existence because of God leading me to Keller & Keller and Keith Gora and his excellent faithfulness to his service as a legal representative. God Bless You All And Thank you from the Bottom of my Heart, Denise ADenise
My attorney made sure the settlement covered all bills. I was very happy with the end result of the settlement.
I was involved in a car accident and was rear ended by an inattentive driver of a utility van. Being out of state, my father did some research on local personal injury law firms and we contacted Keller & Keller. We scheduled a meeting and met an attorney and paralegal. They were very honest and helpful, willing to work with me even though I was studying and living abroad...(extra work). The aftermath of the accident required that I have two surgeries ..and after undergoing them I had complications, including an emergency room visit and two weeks of intensive care. My attorney made sure the settlement covered all bills. I was very happy with the end result of the settlement. If I would ever be in a car accident again (hopefully never again) I would definitely contact Keller & Keller as they went over and above my expectations. The paralegal Jennifer and attorney Matt were outstanding in performance, professionalism and care. After my case was closed, I was having trouble with my credit score as a lot of the medical bills where sent over to the collection agency. Not knowing what to do or having any prior experience, I called Keller & Keller back... they not only resolved the situation and sent copies of the payed bills, but they made sure everything was cleared. They didn't have to do that at all, so I am very thankful for the whole team that worked on my case and did much more than was asked of them.Katya Russell

After a terrifying wreck and a major surgery, I was in way over my head trying to deal with the insurance companies.
After a terrifying wreck and a major surgery, I was in way over my head trying to deal with insurance companies. Sara with Keller & Keller (and the staff I dealt with) made a scary situation seem easy. As of today, I owe nothing and no longer have to worry about losing everything. I couldn't imagine trying to deal with all of this on my own. Sara took care of everything and kept me updated each step of the way. I highly recommend giving them a call before you try to handle this yourself. A huge weight has been lifted off my family's shoulder!!!Sierra Goodpaster
My car accident was one of the most difficult times of my life...
My car accident was one of the most difficult times of my life. I called multiple personal injury attorney's but once I called Keller & Keller, they immediately put me at ease. I knew right away Keller & Keller was who I wanted to represent me. My case manager, Amanda Boggess, kept me informed and up to date throughout the entire process. Anytime I called, Amanda made me feel like a priority and always had answers to all of my questions. I highly recommend Keller & Keller. I hope to never be involved in another accident, but if I am I will definitely go back to them.Christy Shannon

“If you ever have any doubt, give Keller & Keller a call and they will let you know what can be done.”
I was rear-ended in a car accident. The person who hit me was driving on a suspended license AND did not have any insurance. I wasn't expecting anything because the person had no insurance. Thanks to the due diligence of Keller & Keller I am able to pay my son's spring college tuition with the settlement I received and a little extra in my pocket. If you ever have any doubt, give Keller and Keller a call and they will let you know what can be done. Thanks, Keller and Keller for everything.Tamiko
