Some injuries are so severe that our bodies can never fully recover from them. These types of injuries are known as catastrophic injuries. They can lead to expensive medical bills, long-term loss of quality of life, and crippling physical and emotional distress. If this has happened to you or a loved one, an attorney from Brown and Barron may be able to help.
When you or a loved one suffers a preventable catastrophic injury in Dundalk, the road to recovery is not one you must walk alone. Brown and Barron has been fighting for the rights of catastrophic injury victims and their families for almost 40 years. If you let us represent your case, we’ll fight for you too.
What Kind of Recoverable Damages Can You Demand After a Catastrophic Injury?
When it comes to catastrophic injuries, people who suffer them are allowed to seek recoverable damages from a negligent party who caused those injuries. The underlying principle behind recoverable damages is that it’s not fair for a catastrophic injury victim or their family to bear the cost of treating and recuperating from a preventable injury.
The types of recoverable damages Brown and Barron can demand on your behalf after a catastrophic injury break down into the following separate categories:
- Economic damages
- Non-economic damages
Examples of economic damages would include the following:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills (both for immediate and long-term treatment of the injury)
- Long-term or permanent loss of wages (if you’re permanently disabled or prevented from working for a lengthy period because of your injury)
What Are Non-Economic Damages?
Non-economic damages are losses that victims suffer in catastrophic injuries that may not have a specific dollar amount but do have value for the victim. Unlike economic damages, non-economic damages don’t have a defined dollar value in the same way wages or medical bills do. Examples of non-economic damages include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Long-term loss of quality of life
- Mental anguish (e.g., Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression)
- Pain and suffering

How Much Is My Dundalk Catastrophic Injury Case Worth?
The best way to get an idea of how much your catastrophic injury may be worth is to contact one of our attorneys for a consultation. The potential value of your case depends on the total economic and non-economic damages you or your loved one suffered as a result of the catastrophic injury.
No two catastrophic injury cases are completely alike, so it’s so important to sit down and consult with us about your case. This is especially true when it comes to estimating the value of your non-economic damages. Meeting with you personally will allow our attorneys to get a complete understanding of the extent to which the accident has affected your life.
What Kinds of Injuries Qualify as Catastrophic Injuries?
Generally, any injury that causes significant, life-long, or permanent loss of bodily function(s) or quality of life could be considered catastrophic. Examples of catastrophic injuries include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:
- Paraplegia (loss of use of two limbs)
- Quadriplegia (loss of use of four limbs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Loss of limbs (amputation)
- Severe burns
- Major sports injuries (e.g., compound leg fractures, broken neck)
These injuries are just a few of the potential catastrophic injuries you or a family member can suffer. If you believe your injuries are catastrophic in nature but do not see them listed here, you can still consult with an attorney from our firm for further clarification.
