Montgomery County Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
By nature, accidents happen suddenly and without warning. When a car crash or accident at work leaves you injured, this can have devastating results for you and your family. What makes matters worse is when an auto accident or workplace incident leaves you with a catastrophic injury. These injuries are defined as being so severe that they impair your ability to function in your everyday life.
For example, an accident that causes blindness, loss of a limb, paralysis, or chronic pain could be considered catastrophic. If the incident occurred because someone failed to uphold their duty of care obligations, such as driving safely or providing a safe workplace, you could recover damages in a catastrophic injury lawsuit. This is important because the insurance company won’t always give enough to cover all the expenses from devastating injuries when offering you a settlement.
For the best chances of covering your ongoing medical care, missed work, reduced income-earning ability, and pain and suffering, you should reach out to an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer for help. At Tehrani Law, LLC, we care deeply about each client. We listen closely to your story and work tirelessly to help you make a full financial recovery.

What is the Definition of a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury case involves recovering compensation for victims who suffer from chronic or permanent disability following an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. An injury may be considered catastrophic if it hinders the person’s bodily function, such as quadriplegia. Additionally, injuries that change a person’s appearance, such as severe scarring from a burn or the loss of a limb, would also be catastrophic.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries are:
- Organ damage
- Hearing loss
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limb, including amputations
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Facial injuries
- Orthopedic damage
If you or a loved one is suffering from the above or another devastating injury, you may be able to recover damages in a catastrophic injury claim. Please reach out to a trusted legal professional for counsel on whether you have a valid claim and how to proceed.
What Are Some Accidents that Cause Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic accidents occur every year in Maryland. These are highly complex personal injury cases where the victim must prove that their injuries affect their lives to the point that they cannot function normally because of the accident.
Some common causes of catastrophic injuries in Montgomery County are:
- Auto accident
- Wreck involving a drunk driver
- Construction accident
- Falling objects
- Slip and fall accident
- Dog bite incident
- Accident involving a commercial vehicle, such as a semi-truck

When bringing a legal claim against the at-fault party, it is essential to establish who was at fault for the accident. Hiring an experienced catastrophic injury attorney can help ensure that you recover all of the damages you are owed. Your lawyer can help gather evidence to show that you were not at fault and that the other party owed you a duty of care that was breached.

How Much Can I Receive in Damages for a Catastrophic Injury?
Many people hesitate to bring a lawsuit after an accident because they feel they are not the “kind of person” to sue. While we recognize that no amount of money can undo the pain that has been done to you, seeking justice and getting financial help following your accident is appropriate and is a valuable part of the healing process. In some cases, bringing a lawsuit can prevent more people from being injured in the future by bringing a negligent company or individual to justice.
The best way to accurately estimate the amount of damages you can recover in a lawsuit is by coming in for a free case evaluation and speaking with us in person. However, you can expect to receive compensation for certain economic and non-economic damages from your injuries.
Some items that would be covered in a successful catastrophic injury legal claim are:
- Doctor’s visits
- Hospital bills
- Ambulance costs
- Physical therapy
- Rehabilitation costs
- Future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost salary
- Lost vacation time and bonuses
- Lost income-earning ability
- Mental trauma
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages, if the actions against you were criminal in nature
You can help ensure the success of your case by gathering evidence, such as contact information for eyewitnesses and photos of the accident. For the best chances of getting maximum compensation that covers all of your current and future costs, you need skilled lawyers fighting on your side. Call Tehrani Law, LLC for compassionate legal professionals who will fight aggressively for your best interests.
Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer for My Catastrophic Injury?
Many accident victims think that all they can do following an accident is file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, the truth is that most insurers offer a settlement that is far too low, hoping the victim will be satisfied and walk away. These settlements usually do not take into account the many expenses and future costs involved with catastrophic injuries. For example, the insurance agent will probably not consider non-economic damages like pain, emotional distress, and other suffering.
Hiring a lawyer gives you a better chance of receiving a fair settlement from the insurance company. Your attorney will know how to negotiate an offer that meets your needs. And if more is required, your lawyer will be a strong ally in your corner as you bring a lawsuit against the negligent parties. They will investigate the details of the accident and present a strong argument backed up by evidence that shows the gross negligence of the at-fault party.
Don’t go it alone with so much at stake. Call now to speak with our law firm, and rest assured that your case will be handled with care, honesty, and skill.
