Daniel G. McNamara advocates for injured people and their loved ones in the greater Fort Wayne area when another person is at fault for their suffering. Our office works to reach settlements and seeks to achieve favorable rulings that help safeguard your future and relieve your hardship.

Motor vehicle collisions may leave passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists with bills for ambulances, doctors, physical therapists and auto repairs, along with lost wages, due to physical and emotional trauma. We handle cases involving:
Indiana is an at-fault insurance state, so individuals here have several options for making claims, including bringing other drivers and their insurance companies to court. These claims must be made swiftly, as the statute of limitations for filing personal injury cases is, at most, two years.
Medical malpractice can occur in surgery, during a routine appointment and in other situations. If you are harmed by the carelessness of a medical professional, we will work tirelessly to help you obtain compensation for your distress. In Indiana, a medical malpractice claim can be filed within two years of the healthcare provider’s negligent act. Indiana imposes a cap for total damages that can be awarded from medical malpractice suits. Claims filed up until July 1, 2019 allow for a maximum allotted payment of $1.65 million, and claims filed after July 1, 2019 are capped at $1.8 million.
No amount of money can make up for the passing of a loved one, especially when the death was the result of someone else’s negligent behavior. However, receiving payment for medical and funeral expenses and lost earnings can help survivors deal with the difficulty of their loss. Wrongful death suits can be filed in Indiana when a wrongful act or omission can be shown to have caused a person’s death. The deceased’s spouse, children and dependent next of kin can seek benefits in these cases.
