Indianapolis Personal Injury Lawyers

Dealing with a serious injury or the loss of a family member is always difficult.  But, when the situation could have been avoided if someone took reasonable care, the experience becomes devastating.  While no amount of money can truly compensate victims of negligence, you need an experienced Indianapolis injury lawyer to help collect all compensation you legally deserve if you have been injured due to someone else's actions.

You can afford skilled personal injury lawyers in Indianapolis

Experienced Indianapolis injury lawyers are available without paying a high hourly fee.  The Indianapolis personal injury attorneys at Yosha Cook & Tisch operate on a contingency fee basis—you pay a percentage of the award when we win your case.  This allows you to hire a competent, skilled lawyer for the same price as a novice attorney fresh out of law school. It is important for you to be represented by counsel who is not only willing but able to take your case all the way through trial should that become necessary. As a general rule, attorneys who regularly try cases usually obtain a more favorable resolution than attorneys who have a reputation for simply settling cases.

Experience is key when looking for an Indianapolis personal injury lawyer

Our lawyers have more than 122 years collective experience practicing law.  We have extensive litigation experience in serious personal injury cases and are experienced trial attorneys.  We represent plaintiffs (those injured) in many types of wrongful death and personal injury cases, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Head and spinal injuries
  • Products liability
  • Fire and explosions

Your choice of lawyers is a life-altering decision

If you have recently suffered a family loss or serious injury, the decision to hire an attorney can have a profound and lifelong effect on you and your family.  Like any professional, attorneys vary in experience, skill, experience, and results.  It is critical that you thoroughly investigate the background and experience of any Indianapolis injury lawyer you are considering hiring.

Every attorney at Yosha Cook & Tisch offers professional and competent representation to those seeking an injury lawyer in Indianapolis.  We help investigate and develop client claims related to Indianapolis personal injuries or wrongful death. The attorneys in our firm come from varied backgrounds and bring a unique set of skills and experience to address your particular needs.  Our knowledgable, experienced, and aggressive team of attorneys, paralegals, and litigation professionals focus entirely on helping injured people.

We stand on our reputation. Ask anyone.
