What Kinds of Catastrophic Injury Damages Can You Seek on My Behalf in Elkhart?
Catastrophic injury accidents often have severe consequences that could last a lifetime. The tab will begin running on the medical bills the minute after the accident occurs. Everything from hospital transportation to post-accident surgery and rehabilitation will cost money. In many cases, this is money accident victims don’t have. However, the reality is even if you could afford the bills, whoever caused your accident should be paying them.
That’s why Indiana allows catastrophic injury accident victims to demand recoverable damages when someone else’s negligence caused the accident. Examples of the financial (economic) damages we may demand on your behalf include:
- Medical bills
- Lost income, including benefits, bonuses, and tips
- Lost earning ability
- Permanent disability
- Transportation to the hospital after the accident
- Loss of function (e.g., brain damage, limb amputation)
- Long-term after-accident care (e.g., a live-in nurse, full-time home care)
- Accident-related renovations or repairs (e.g., installing a ramp to your home or otherwise retrofitting it to accommodate your injuries)
You Could Recover Non-Economic Damages, Too
In addition to these mostly financial damages, you can also seek damages for non-financial (non-economic) losses, such as pain and suffering or reduced quality of life. These non-economic damages may not have a “set cost” like your medical bills, but they are still damages you suffered and should be compensated for.

What Will Your Attorney Demand in Recoverable Damages in My Elkhart Catastrophic Injury Case?
The total damages we can demand will be based on the sum of your economic damages plus an appropriate amount that compensates you for your pain and suffering. Because the seriousness of your injuries, the cost of treating them, and the degree to which a catastrophic injury has affected your life are all unique to your case, we would need to gain a full understanding of these factors before estimating your case’s value.
Considering this, the best way for you to gain insight into how much your case may be worth is to speak with an attorney from our firm. We know your accident has caused economic upheaval in your life. It’s why we offer free case evaluations to prospective clients. We want you to have the information you need to make sound decisions about how to move forward.
When Should I Reach Out to an Elkhart Catastrophic Injury Attorney About My Case?
We realize that an immediate physical recovery from your accident is the single most important thing for you. So, we advise that you focus on that first. With that said, the sooner we consult with you about your case, the sooner we can begin planning on how to fight for you and protect your interests.
If you are considering legal services, call us as soon as you can without being overwhelmed. Just bear in mind that Indiana has a two-year statute of limitations on seeking damages in personal injury cases. This two-year period starts the day of your accident, per IC § 34-11-2-4.
Filing Your Injury Case Early Has Its Advantages
There is another key reason reaching out to an attorney as soon as possible can work to your advantage. The sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can begin collecting evidence in your case. Memories can fade, and documents can be lost or destroyed as you get further away from your accident. Putting an attorney on your case as quickly as possible can help preserve any evidence that might strengthen your case for damages.

Paying for Legal Services in an Elkhart Catastrophic Injury Case
For most people who have suffered through a catastrophic injury accident, the only bigger nightmare than the accident itself is the financial nightmare the accident creates. In many cases, medical bills are coming in, but money is not because your accident may be keeping you from working. Being between that rock and a hard place is why so many catastrophic injury accident victims do not consider the legal options available to them.

Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers handles catastrophic injury cases like yours on contingency. Our firm does not charge clients upfront fees or costs, and there are no fees unless we win or settle your case.
