Seeking Damages for Your Family’s Costs and Losses
Catastrophic injuries, by their very nature, are life-altering. They can significantly change the course of the victim’s career, relationships, and independence. They also affect their spouse, children, parents, and other members of the immediate family in major ways. Our team understands this and the stress, frustration, worry, and other emotions that come with it. We handle these cases with compassion and care and fight for these families.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries our attorneys have seen in our 400+ years of combined legal experience include:
- Third or fourth-degree burns
- Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Significant orthopedic injuries, including amputations
While your loved one’s treatment plan depends on their specific injuries and medical needs, there are likely to be large medical bills for hospitalization and inpatient rehabilitation, therapies, ongoing care costs, and even renovation costs at your home. Adaptive and mobility equipment may be necessary. The expenses are often overwhelming for families.
These are recoverable damages in these cases. When we pursue compensation for our clients, we document their expenses and losses and demand money for them from the at-fault party’s insurance company or sue them directly for the financial recovery. The damages we commonly seek include:
- Medical expenses
- Future and ongoing care and support costs
- Lost income from the time missed at work
- Reduced earning capacity if they cannot return to work
- Other related expenses
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
We also handle wrongful death actions for our clients. If your loved one passed away from their injuries before they could begin a personal injury lawsuit, your family may have a wrongful death claim. The personal representative of your loved one can take legal action to seek damages, and we can help.

Building a Carmel Catastrophic Injury Case
At Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers, our personal injury attorneys serving Carmel represent clients in many types of negligence cases. This includes incidents and accidents where the victim suffered catastrophic injuries, and their family is seeking compensation on their behalf or they are taking legal action for their injuries.
Some of the most common types of cases we handle include:
- Auto accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Truck collisions
- Pedestrian and bicycle versus motor vehicle accidents
- Rideshare collisions
- Dog attacks
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability cases, including falls, fires, drowning, and electrocution
- Nursing home abuse
All of these situations occur because of someone’s bad behavior—usually carelessness or recklessness—and this allows victims to seek compensation for the costs and losses they incurred due to that party’s actions. To hold them legally responsible, they will need to show that negligence occurred and caused the injuries. Our team gathers evidence to document what happened, including all four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
When we can show our client suffered injuries and financial losses because of the actions of the at-fault party, this usually allows us to recover money damages for them in the insurance claims and negotiation process or by taking the case to trial. Because we have experience with TBIs, SCIs, and other catastrophic injuries, we value these cases accurately and pursue fair and appropriate payouts for our clients.
Is There a Deadline for Suing the At-Fault Party in Hamilton County, IN?
All states have a deadline for how long victims can wait to sue after an injury. In Indiana, this statute of limitations is found under IC § 34-11-2-4. This law gives most people up to two years to sue for personal injuries under most circumstances. However, there is a lot of work to be done on a case before filing the complaint in a Hamilton County court.
If you are considering your legal options after you or a loved one suffered catastrophic injuries, getting your free consultation with our firm is a good first step. We like to get started early when the most evidence is available to support your case.
