Have you been injured in an accident due to someone else's negligence?

Well then, you may be entitled to compensation for damages including, but not limited to injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and future medical treatments.

Don and Charlie Ward have practiced personal injury law for more than 85 years combined. Their years of experience and service to professional organizations and the community have afforded them with opportunities to work on many different types of injury cases, each with their own legal challenges.

Every case is different, with a unique set of circumstances, obstacles to overcome and legal strategies to be employed. Though many cases reach a successful conclusion through mutual settlement, our firm works every case, from start to finish, with the intention that it will be going to trial. This kind of commitment to our clients requires additional staff, time and valuable resources but we believe a ‘position of strength’ is the best approach to negotiation, mediation or trial work.

Matters that are decided and voted upon in the halls and chambers of Indiana’s institutions matter to you and can make a big difference to our clients and their cases. For that reason, we are well-informed of legislation as it unfolds. And we read and maintain an up-to-date working knowledge of legal decisions and opinions written by Judges and Justices in the highest state, district and federal courts.

Search engines are ripe with attorneys and law firms advertising legal services. How can you know which firm to call? You want to choose an attorney that is experienced and knowledgeable in the specific area of personal injury law that you need representation in.

Don’t wait to contact an attorney. Make your call today! You may have been told or believe that you have two years before the Indiana statute of limitations runs. But in certain cases, you may only have 180 days from date of injury to notify the proper authorities pending litigation. Further, many lawyers are reluctant to consider taking a case with a statute of limitations bearing down in the final weeks or even months. For qualified legal representation, give Charlie Ward a call at 317-639-9501.

Common questions you may have about personal injury claims and the personal injury claim process are covered below. To get personalized answers about your particular injury please call Attorney Charlie Ward at the Ward & Ward Law Firm. Charlie is always available to speak to you about your injuries and specific situation.

Do I have a personal injury claim?

Too often we associate personal injury claims with motor vehicle accidents. But claims for damages may also be brought against another person or entity for medical malpractice involving the carelessness or negligence of a doctor and/or medical provider, nursing home negligence, product liability, slip and fall injuries, workplace injuries, aviation and railroad death or injuries, premises liability, wrongful death and dog bite claims, to name a few.

Can I handle the Case on my own, or do I need an attorney?

A minor accident involving nothing more than property damage to your vehicle or possessions may often be handled without the assistance of a lawyer. That being said, incidents involving bodily injury are best handled by an attorney who knows and understands the law, legislation, your legal and financial obligations and rights. An experienced personal injury lawyer will do his or her best to protect your financial interests from defendant drivers and third parties to the case who deny full or partial responsibility for your injuries. Complications may arise, particularly during the discovery phase, that require legal representation to negotiate the perils and pitfalls in settlement negotiations and litigation. The attorneys at Ward & Ward Law Firm will not only protect the obvious and known, but will also protect the unknown.

How Much does a personal injury attorney charge ?

This is a question for you to ask of the lawyer you want to represent you. Most injury lawyers receive remuneration for their representation on a contingency fee basis, i.e., they receive a percentage of your settlement or jury award. On the other hand, your lawyer may take nothing unless you have been compensated for your injuries.

What should I do after an accident?


How do I handle the insurance company?

Your insurance company will want to take your oral, recorded statement after they have been notified of the accident. Refer your insurance company to your attorney before you give the oral or written statement. Your attorney will discuss this with you. Remember, do not discuss fault with anyone.

How do I get my medical bills paid?

Your immediate concern should be your medical condition. Concentrate your attention and energy on improving the condition of your health. The attorneys at Ward & Ward Law Firm will work with and negotiate with your insurance company and your medical providers at the appropriate time. This is one of the obvious benefits to hiring an attorney immediately following an accident. Generally speaking, our lawyers’ recommend you not make any payments from your medical payment insurance policy until you have discussed your bills with them. Our staff will ask that you forward all medical bills and prescription receipts to our office. At that time, we will review and advise how payment distribution should be made from your med-pay insurance.

How long does a personal injury case take?

It’s impossible to estimate how long it may take for your claim to resolve because every case is different with a unique set of facts. The stance taken by the defendant and his or her insurance company, the willingness of your insurance company to settle if you must file an uninsured or underinsured claim and the number of claimants with injuries all play a role in the settlement or trial of your case.

I had the experience in meeting Charlie Ward when my son was in a car accident. you hear alot of neglect things when dealing with lawyers, but I am here to say that it was not true with Charlie Ward. He explain the process and what our rights were and what we were intitled to under the law, and also concern with how we were dealing with this process. We went through the process and everything was fine.What I like the most was that my son and myself has made a friend for life, in that we can call Charlie Ward and firm and know that we are in great hands.
Debra DraperClient Testimonial
I met Charlie Ward after I was involved in an auto accident where I was hit from behind and driven into the car in front of me. The impact was so hard that it knocked the radio out of the dash. I incurred injuries from the accident and the insurance company kept dragging their feet on a settlement. Charlie was incredibly helpful and encouraging throughout the whole process. It took over three years and mediation, but I finally recieved a settlement. I know that I would still be waiting for a settlement if I hadn't contacted Charlie. Charlie also assisted me in setting up my Will, Living Will, Power of Attorney, etc. He truly goes the extra mile to take care of his clients and I know he is genuine in his concern. I can never imagine ever using anyone but Charlie for my legal issues.
Susan MilesClient Testimonial
I was attacked by two dogs at a customer's house while working for the gas and electric company. Charlie Ward was recommended to me by my cousin. Charlie handled my case with compassion and true professionalism. Every phone call was answered, as well as every question. In the past, I was of the ilk that lawyers were "wolves". This experience has given me a new outlook on personal injury lawyers. Charlie Ward is kind, honest, but most of all, extremely competent!! Thanks for everything Charlie.
B.A. KolbClient Testimonial
Charlie is without a doubt the most kind and caring attorney in Indiana. When I was injured seven years ago as a result of a rear end collison with an uninsured motorist, he fought for me, not for the money. He is an expert in his field and a man that you can respect and count on. He is responsive to your needs as the client. Since then he has drawn up my will and advised me on some other legal matters. Charlie has become my friend and will continue to be my attorney for many years to come. What other attorney do you know who will call you on your birthday and check in now and again just to see how you are doing? That is what you can expect from Charlie. In a word, he is AWESOME!
