Indiana County

Indiana County was established by the Act of the General Assembly March 30, 1803, from territory originally belonging to Westmoreland and Lycoming Counties.  The county was named in honor of its former Native American (Indian) inhabitants, as was its county seat, Indiana.  Indiana County proclaims itself as the “Christmas Tree Capital of the World” and is also known as the home of the Jimmy Stewart Museum and the Jimmy Stewart Airport.

Nestled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, Indiana County natural beauty and attractions located within the county make it a popular destination for visitors.  In addition to being known as the Christmas Tree Capital of the World, Indiana County is also a major national center for energy production.  Over 14,000 students study various disciplines at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, while at the same time the Amish in Smicksburg continue their traditional way of life.

Pennsylvania lawyers practicing law in Indiana County specialize in various niches of the law, including areas like bankruptcy law, employment law, personal injury law, immigration, family law, medical malpractice law, workers compensation law, and even criminal law.  Criminal law involves, logically enough, crimes committed by one party against another and are broken up into two subsets:  felonies and misdemeanors.  Felonies are larger offenses that typically result in harsher punishments.  Misdemeanors are smaller offenses that yield sentences that are not quite as harsh.  It is recommended that defendants retain one of the many experienced Pennsylvania lawyers practicing criminal law to represent them no matter which type of crime they have been accused of committing.

One common area of law for which Pennsylvania residents in Indiana County often need the assistance of a good Pennsylvania lawyer is that of burn injuries.  Second only to motor vehicle accidents, burn injuries are the next leading cause of accidental death in the United States and affect more than 2.5 million Americans annually.  The American Burn Association reports that about 1.1 million of those burn injuries require medical attention.  About 45,000 of those injuries require hospitalization, with half of those burn patients being admitted to a specialized burn unit.  Unfortunately, approximately 4,500 of these people die every year.  Pennsylvania lawyers who practice personal injury law regularly stand ready to help those who have suffered burn injuries get the compensation they deserve.

In the past, burns covering half or more of the body were usually fatal.  Today, however, modern medicine can practically work miracles for burn patients.  Medical advances in resuscitation practices, wound cleaning and follow-up care, nutritional support, and infection control have greatly increased burn injury survivability.  Grafting with natural or artificial materials has also greatly improved the healing process.  Those with burns covering 90 percent of the body can survive, although most will suffer permanent impairments requiring months if not years of follow-up care.  Those patients should consider contacting one of the many Pennsylvania lawyers experienced in practicing personal injury law.
