Two types of injuries can rightly be considered “catastrophic”: brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. A catastrophic injury will have the most severe and long-term consequences, affect the most areas of life (work life, home life, recreation), and pose the most difficulties to full recovery.

Hurst is well aware of all the possible spinal cord injuries and their consequences.
If your loved one suffered a spinal cord injury, it will be important to have the financial resources to ensure they get good medical care, extended rehabilitation services and, in the worst case, lifelong home care and adaptive equipment.

An experienced Indianapolis spinal cord injury lawyer is crucial when these types of injuries occur. The attorneys at our office have more than 35 years of experience and track record of aggressive representation in negotiations and in trial. That experience, coupled with a network of investigative professionals and medical experts, enable us to achieve very favorable settlements and verdicts for our injured clients.
We have handled hundreds of spinal cord injury cases in which clients suffered partial or full paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia) because of damage to vertebrae and nerves. We have also worked with clients who experience numbness, lack of sensation, or weakness in the limbs. Back injuries can cause ruptured discs, or bulging or herniated discs, leading to chronic back pain.
While everyone — including juries — considers paralysis to be the most debilitating spinal cord injury, we know that chronic pain from disc injury or degenerative disc disease can truly make life a nightmare. Excruciating, chronic pain causes sleep disturbance, limits mobility, makes work impossible, and can contribute to drug and alcohol abuse as the injured person looks for any means available to numb the pain.
As your Indianapolis spinal cord injury lawyer one of our attorneys will work to help you obtain an accurate diagnosis of your spinal cord injury and the medical and rehabilitative treatment you will need, both today and throughout your life.
We gather the evidence needed to demonstrate to the insurance company — or to a jury — the many ways in which your injury limits your life. These are two factors that will be considered when determining the amount of compensation you can receive.
Our goal is to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation so you have the greatest opportunity possible to regain your independence and your life after an accident.

Traumatic Brain Injury is an acceleration-deceleration brain injury most commonly caused by car accidents, blast trauma during combat, and severe sports injuries.

Once a law suit is filed, both an insured and insurer have obligations to fulfill under their policy agreement. Indiana law recognizes the validity of cooperation clauses and an insured’s breach of that clause can preclude recovery under the policy.
