Experienced Lawyers in Plainfield, Indiana

Living in Plainfield, Indiana

Plainfield is a suburb of Indianapolis, which borders it to the east. To the north are Avon and Brownsburg, and to the south is Mooresville. Plainfield is in Hendricks County and has a population of 32,879. Originally incorporated in 1839, the town was named after its early Quaker settlers. The Quakers, also called Friends, considered themselves to be “plain” people, hence the name of the town.

Plainfield is an affordable town in which to live; the median house price is $170,400, well below the national median house price of $217,500. Because it is possible to commute to Indianapolis in approximately 20 minutes, many residents work there. However, there are plenty of employment opportunities in Plainfield itself because it is home to such companies as Amazon, Brightpoint, Duke Energy, and Hitachi Data Systems, as well as many restaurant and retail stores.

Because of its A+ rated public schools (ranked 6th out of 232 public school districts in Indiana by Niche), Plainfield is a great place for families. It also boasts the open air Metropolis Mall, a 58 acre sports complex, hiking trails, and a skate park, trampoline park, and water park. Of course, because of its convenient location, in less than half an hour families can drive to Indianapolis to explore the world’s largest Children’s Museum or the Indianapolis Zoo.

Our experienced pedestrian accident attorneys work on a contingency fee, which means if you do not win your case, you will pay no attorney fees. Most law firms charge 33% or 40%. Our fee is only 25%* — THAT’S MORE MONEY FOR YOU!

Wrongful Death

If your loved one died too soon because of the wrongful acts of another person, you have the right to seek justice for your loved one and your family by filing a lawsuit with a Plainfield wrongful death attorney.

Wrongful death claims are different from other types of personal injury claims. The victim cannot speak for himself or herself. However, you can speak for your loved one, and we can help.

Slip and Fall

A fall can result in traumatic injuries that prevent victims from returning to work or performing daily activities, resulting in major changes, inconvenience, and often pain for the victims of said accidents. When a fall occurs on another person’s property, the property owner may be held liable for the damages caused by the fall. Our Plainfield slip and fall attorneys represent accident victims who have been injured by a slip and fall.

Bicycle Accidents

Official reports show Indiana as ranking 13th in the United States for bicycle accidents per capita. Data shows that bicycle fatalities rose in 2018 by a shocking 120% from the previous year; nationwide, fatalities from bicycle accidents numbered 857 that year. If you suffer a bicycle accident caused by negligent, careless, or reckless acts of another person or party, our Plainfield personal injury lawyers may be able to help you.

DUI/DWI Accidents 

When an impaired driver causes a DUI/DWI accident, the accident victims can face lifelong consequences or even death because of a driver’s reckless and negligent decision to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking or taking drugs. If you have been injured in a DUI accident, you need an attorney to protect your rights. Our experienced Plainfield DUI attorneys thoroughly investigate the accident to gather evidence that proves the drunk driver caused the crash.

Liquor (Dram Shop) Liability

You may be able to sue a bar owner, convenience store owner, company party host, or someone else for providing alcohol to a person who was obviously too drunk to drive. If a drunk driver or otherwise intoxicated person has injured you, call 1-800-265-9881 now to speak with a Plainfield dram shop liability attorney.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?

  • Expenses and costs related to medical care
  • Loss of income, including future lost wages and loss of earning capacity

  • Emotional suffering, PTSD, and mental anguish

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.

Personal Injury

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.

Dog Bites

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 dog bite attorneys are fully prepared to take your case before a jury.
