For many people and their families, suffering a catastrophic injury is like being in a nightmare they can’t wake up from. Perhaps the only thing that could make a tragic situation like this even worse is knowing it didn’t have to happen. If you’re in East Chicago and living through this nightmare, our catastrophic injury lawyer can handle your legal case and help you pursue damages from the liable party.
Everything about a catastrophic injury is traumatic. First comes the anguish of wondering if you (or your loved one) will even survive the injury. Next is the shock of learning the extent of the injuries and how much they will cost you. You don’t have to pay those costs alone. Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers wants to help you hold the negligent party accountable and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers Is a Firm That Fights for You
When you’re in a catastrophic injury accident that you didn’t cause, the aftermath can be devastating. Fortunately, the law recognizes the unfairness of a situation like yours, which is why you’re allowed to seek damages from the negligent party who caused your injuries. Unfortunately, that’s where things can get even more complicated for catastrophic injury accident victims.
Negligent parties who cause catastrophic injuries rarely, if ever, just accept responsibility for your damages. In many cases, they’ll have an insurance company or an attorney who gets paid to deny liability and/or downplay the severity of your suffering. That’s where an attorney from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help.
Our firm’s attorneys have over 400 years of combined legal experience fighting for people like you. Since opening our firm, we’ve recovered over $1 billion in settlements and legal judgments for our clients. We pride ourselves on fighting for our clients’ rights to compensation after suffering catastrophic injuries.

What Can Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers Do for Me?
We don’t just believe in fighting hard for our clients; we believe in fighting smart. We understand the first step in recovering damages for our clients is making a strong case against the negligent party that caused an accident.
We can interview witnesses, demand documents, and, if necessary, subpoena records regarding the events that led up to your injury. This is all part of an evidence-gathering process that will establish that you suffered your injury due to someone else’s negligence. Once that’s clear, we will formulate a plan on how we will seek damages and for how much. Then, we’ll fight for you as hard as we can.
But that’s not all. Examples of other things our East Chicago catastrophic injury lawyer can do for you are:
- Managing communications with the negligent party or their legal representatives and insurance company
- Keeping a record of your medical bills and accident-related expenses
- Overseeing settlement negotiations
- Filing your case with the courts (if necessary)
- Representing your case in court (if settlement negotiations are unsuccessful)

What Recoverable Damages Can Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers Demand on My Behalf?
Anytime you suffer injuries in an accident, you will have expenses. If you didn’t cause that accident, those expenses should not be yours to bear alone. That’s why the law gives you the right to demand that the negligent party compensates you for your losses. If you are our client, we will examine the full range of damages you suffered in your catastrophic injury accident.
A partial list of the damages an attorney from our firm may demand in your case appears below:
- Medical bills (past, present, and future)
- Transportation to medical facilities after the accident
- Lost income during your recovery
- Permanent income loss (if you can’t work again)
- Injury-oriented renovations or repairs (e.g., retrofitting your home or car for disabled access)
- Permanent or long-term care (e.g., continuing physical therapy, daily home care, live-in nurses)
How Much Will You Demand in My East Chicago Catastrophic Injury Case?
In almost all catastrophic injury cases, the medical bills and other accident-related expenses add up to significant damages. With that said, damages in catastrophic injury cases can vary widely because there are so many kinds of catastrophic injuries. This means your case is unique in relation to any other case we have worked on before.
We will seek as many recoverable damages as reasonably possible in your case, but we can’t estimate the value of your individual situation without all the facts. If you would really like to get an idea of the potential value of the recoverable damages in your case, we invite you to speak to one of our attorneys for a free case evaluation.
You Must Act Quickly in Indiana Catastrophic Injury Cases
Indiana’s law gives you the right to seek damages after being hurt in a catastrophic injury accident. However, that right has a time limit. Indiana sets a general two-year statute of limitations deadline for personal injury cases (IC § 34-11-2-4), which begins on the date of your accident. If you don’t pursue damages before this deadline expires, you will lose your right to demand compensation.
There are also other, more practical reasons why it may benefit you to retain counsel as soon as possible after your accident. The strength of the evidence we can gather for your case can go a long way toward how much leverage we have in negotiating settlements or how persuasive our case may be at trial.
The sooner our East Chicago catastrophic injury lawyer can start on your case, the sooner we can officially request legal documents, video footage, or other evidence that can support your case. It also gives us the advantage of interviewing witnesses at a time when their memory of the accident is still fresh.
