A catastrophic injury can happen in any type of accident, leaving you or a loved one with serious pain, long-lasting physical or cognitive damage, and piles of medical bills to pay.

But you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s negligence or carelessness that caused your accident. A Huntington catastrophic injury lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can help you hold negligent parties accountable and recover much-needed compensation for you and your family.

How Much Compensation Can I Get for My Catastrophic Injury Case?
We’re not able to give you an estimate for how much your catastrophic injury settlement might be. That’s because no two catastrophic injury cases are the same, and we’ll use the following factors and more to get a comprehensive figure for your settlement:
- The type and severity of your injuries
- Your age at the time of the accident
- How the accident occurred
- The number of at-fault parties
- The number of potential sources of compensation, i.e. insurance policies
- Your diagnoses and prognoses
- How the accident has and will continue to impact your life
It’s important to note that the state does not limit how much you can recover for economic or noneconomic damages in personal injury cases. This is especially important since a catastrophic injury can lead to life-long financial strain.

The Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Indiana
In Indiana, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable parties in your case, according to IC § 34-11-2-4. However, the timeline may be different for people who suffered the injury in the accident as a minor. Your catastrophic injury lawyer from Isaacs & Isaacs Personal Injury Lawyers can consult you on how the statute of limitations applies to your case.
It’s important to start working with a lawyer as soon as possible after suffering a catastrophic injury. That’s because it takes time to gather evidence and build a solid case that proves the other party was negligent and caused your accident. The sooner you’re able to speak to an attorney, the more time you have to file a lawsuit should out-of-court negotiations fail.
