Paul S. KrusePartner
PAUL KRUSE graduated cum laude from Indiana University School of Law at Indianapolis in 1981 and has been a partner in the firm since 1984. He has lived in central Indiana his entire life, attending school in Boone and Montgomery counties, before graduating from Indiana University. Mr. Kruse credits his success as a personal injury attorney to his rural upbringing, living in communities where trust and honesty are paramount and a culture of good common sense and hard work prevails.
Mr. Kruse’s interest in helping injured victims stems from his intense competitive nature and extreme compassion for those who are less fortunate. He has committed his career to helping victims and their families. Mr. Kruse’s legal career started in the 1980s when Indiana trial rules permitted personal injury lawsuits to be transferred to Boone County courts from the crowded court dockets in Indianapolis. He served as co-counsel in hundreds of cases, working with the best lawyers in the state and handled 10-12 jury trials every year during the first 10 years of his career.
Mr. Kruse has extensive experience handling catastrophic damage and wrongful death claims involving all types of personal injury liability theories. His work has included thousands of claims arising from motor vehicle incidents that have resulted in million dollar verdicts and other significant settlements for his clients. Mr. Kruse is thankful for the numerous referrals of clients from attorneys across the state and Midwest. He has successfully tried civil jury trials for 3 decades, including litigation in over 40 counties involving motor vehicle collisions, premises liability, animal attacks and product liability.
