A personal injury claim can be filed against a person, company, or property owner who
causes injury to another due to misconduct, negligence, or recklessness. It is a civil case
that allows for victims to collect a monetary compensation for their pain and suffering.
Different States have different Statutes on what constitutes a personal injury and how much
compensation a claimant can receive.

In Indiana, a claimant can only receive damages or compensation his or her responsibility
for the injury is 50% or less. This system is called Modified Comparative Negligence and is
practiced by several States in North America. With the system in place, you can be equally
responsible for the injury or accident and can still claim damages. How much compensation
you receive will depend on your share of the fault that resulted in the accident.
The State of Indiana also allows claims against multiple defendants. How much each
defendant pays the plaintiff or claimant will depend on their share of the fault as decided
by the judge or jury. The amount will be divided from the full damage compensation
granted by the court. For example, if the court awards you $20000 for damages with three
defendants splitting 50-25-25, defendant A will pay you $10000 and B & C will pay you $5000
