The Indiana personal injury statutes and law governs who is responsible for your injuries and which damages should be recoverable or reimbursed. If an individual suffered harm due to the negligence or fault of another, the law enables a recovery of monetary damages. Indiana personal injury law outlines a number of degrees of fault for the individual who caused the injury. The degrees of fault are negligence, intentional fault, and strict liability.
Negligence means that the at fault person did not take a reasonable care or did not act as a reasonable person would have resulting in the injury of another person.
Strict liability means that an injury plaintiff does not have to prove negligence in order to recover an award for damages.
