Catastrophic Injuries FAQs

According to Indiana statute 42 U.S.C. § 3796b, any injury that forces you out of work or significantly reduces your income is catastrophic and recoverable by filing a claim against the at-fault party.

Many benefits come with hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer to represent you in filing an insurance claim or a lawsuit. At first, some injury victims try to hang things on their own but quickly realize they do not have enough understanding of injury law to proceed. An experienced catastrophic injury lawyer can act as your legal advocate and help ensure all legal paperwork is filled out correctly and turned in on time.

You may have a great deal of physical and emotional damage from being involved in an accident. You may need extensive medical treatment to recover from your injuries. It can be difficult for individuals lacking legal training to determine what damages they may be able to recover and what amount they should request in a settlement. A knowledgeable injury attorney can review your case and determine what is right.

In addition, if the insurer is unwilling to negotiate or tries to offer you a settlement that is not in your best interests, you need an experienced attorney on your side who will fight for your rights. Insurance companies will often deny or undervalue a claim by asserting that the victim is partially to blame for the accident.

One such method involves the insurance provider having an adjuster contact you soon after the injury occurs to try and have you make a recorded statement on the pretext of detailing the facts of the injury. However, an insurer has the legal right to use any statement you make about the injury against you to try and lower the amount of compensation they are willing to pay you.

Yes, you can. Multiple parties can be liable for the accident, and you shouldn’t assume that because you may have done something wrong, you are 100% at fault. Indiana follows a comparative negligence law. This law can mean that each party involved in an accident is assigned a percentage of fault, depending upon what they did or failed to do that helped to cause the injury. If you are assigned more than 51%, you are unable to pursue damages. 

Several factors work together to establish fault after a catastrophic injury. Evidence includes pictures or videos of the scene and vehicles, police records, witness statements, and more. Read our blog to learn more about comparative negligence and partial fault.

The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases, including catastrophic injuries, is two years. If you are under 18 years of age at the time of the injury, the two year time window starts on your 18th birthday.
