Tippecanoe County, Indiana
Tippecanoe County, located in the Wabash Valley, is famous for the Battle of Tippecanoe, a conflict between troops organized by Gen. William Henry Harrison and a Native American of the Shawnee tribe, Tecumseh, who opposed U.S. expansion into Native territory. Founded in 1826, its population today is approximately 173,000. The county is home to the cities of Lafayette (the County Seat), West Lafayette, and Purdue University, a world class research facility. Twenty-two Purdue graduates have gone on to become astronauts, the most famous being Gus Grissom and Neil Armstrong. Amelia Earhart taught flight training classes at Purdue and The Purdue Research Foundation funded the aircraft in which Earhart attempted her flight around the world. When employees of Purdue University are denied benefits, the consequences can be significant. Not only do their disability benefits cease, but they also lose their life insurance benefits, tuition reimbursement, and annuity contributions. O’Ryan Law Firm has successfully defended several Purdue employees in claims against Cigna and Prudential insurance companies. Some of their various disabilities have included Lyme Disease, diabetes, cancers, disk diseases, and various neuropathies.
