Living In Avon
If you love picturesque suburban living with parks, gardens, and walking trails, but you also want to be close to all of the museums, professional sports teams, and nightlife a big city can offer, Avon, Indiana is your place. This town of 19,962 people is located in Hendricks County, just west of Indianapolis. It is the fastest-growing town in the county, which is not surprising, considering its suburban charm balanced with its convenient distance (10 minutes) from the Indianapolis International Airport.

Incidentally, Avon boasts its own symphony, symphonic choir, and string quartet, not to mention an award-winning high school marching band.
Citizens of Avon are particularly proud of their designation as a Tree City USA Community; this honor was bestowed 14 years ago by the Arbor Day Foundation and denotes the fact that Avon is a town with sound urban forestry management.

Will My Case Go to Court?
Each case is different, so you should consult with a PBAR attorney to discuss your circumstances in a free case review.
If a defendant refuses to negotiate a fair and just settlement, our PBAR team is prepared and ready to take the matter before a jury to protect your legal rights and your best interests. If you have sustained a personal injury, you have the right to seek compensation. The PBAR team of qualified attorneys is the team you need to fight for your and your loved ones’ best interests.
It can be difficult to place a dollar figure on your pain and suffering after a DUI crash. The insurance company for the drunk driver may accept liability for the accident; however, the company may try to settle your injury claim for an amount that is much lower than the actual value of your claim. If a fair settlement is not possible, we have the experience to litigate your case in court. The PBAR legal team can meticulously document the damages for your DUI injury claim. We gather evidence to support our calculation of the value of your claim. Our goal is to maximize the amount of money you receive for your claim.
The law may be on your side; however, insurance companies do not care. They want to pay as little as possible to settle your claim or deny your claim outright. We want to stop insurance companies from causing you further emotional stress and injury. If a fair settlement is not forthcoming after negotiations, our experienced Avon dog bite attorneys are fully prepared to take your case before a jury.
