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
After suffering multiple injuries and witnessing a person pass away as a result of an accident, our client was in need of serious legal representation. Read the letter she wrote to Jim Keller after we won her case.
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

Everything went smooth as silk through the whole ordeal which ended well. I highly recommend Keller & Keller.Mike
“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

“My sister had a life changing event. While she is blessed to be alive, we are extremely blessed by the very personable experience we received from Keller & Keller. By far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend the firm.”
On June 20, 2016, my 59-year-old sister had a life changing event. She was riding her moped when she got struck by a teenage driver who ran a stop sign. While she is blessed to be alive, we are extremely blessed with the very personable service we received from Amanda B. From the moment we reached out to Keller & Keller to the case settling in less than 5 months Amanda guided us step by step, what to expect when, she was very thorough. We are extremely grateful for her superb service. By far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend the firm.JoAnne
“I hope and pray I never need an accident attorney again, but if I do, I’ll know who to call.”
In November 2015, I was in a horrible accident. No fault of my own. I have great insurance. But this was a bad one. I was hurt. Car totally done. Hospital in ambulance. Fear consumed me, I was afraid to get behind the wheel again. Off work as a 5th grade teacher for months. Memory loss, just a mess. Not able to be a mom or a wife. I was confused and just knew I needed help. So I called Keller and Keller. First time I called and tried to explain I began to cry. It was hard to retell. But the person on the phone was so sweet, understanding and patient. They were real people! The investigator came to my house, during my recovery period, and explained everything to me. They held my hand, and cared about me. My personal case manager checked on me constantly, answered every question. She laughed with my successes and understood my frustrations. All during my PT, after I was released to work, and when I had been put on the back burner my case manager was on it. Now it's October 2016, my case has been completely handled. Keller & Keller worked to assure I received what I felt my pain and suffering were worth, and made sure ALL my bills were paid! Seriously. All of them. So the check I walk away with is for my family and I to recover emotionally and spiritually from those hard months after the accident! Beautiful, kind people, warm offices, and solid Hoosier values in a law office is rare but Keller & Keller fit the bill. Speaking of the bill, I never paid a dime out of pocket, I knew all my fees, (which were minimal and fair) and still have more in my pocket money than I ever thought possible. I hope and pray I never need an accident attorney again, but if I do I'll know who to call. Blessings.Annjatica
