Maryland’s Premier Personal Injury Attorneys Fight for You
Comprehensive counsel for injury victims throughout the state
Plaxen & Adler, P.A. provides comprehensive and aggressive representation on behalf of personal injury and medical malpractice victims throughout the state of Maryland. For more than 30 years, our lawyers have focused our efforts exclusively on injury law, to ensure that clients reap the full benefits of our skills, our resources and our experience when they need them the most.
With nine convenient offices and decades of legal experience, we are one of the most widely recognized personal injury law firms in Maryland. Since 1985, we have been helping victims recover the compensation they deserve.
A leading authority on motor vehicle collisions
According to the Maryland Department of Transportation, people drove more than two billion additional miles on our roadways over the last three years. Extra time on the road means an increased chance of being in a car crash; in 2016, 523 of those crashes were fatal.
Our team understands that after an accident, you will need aggressive, effective representation in order to obtain damages. We have guided thousands of clients who have suffered serious injuries because of:
- Car Accidents. It is difficult to coordinate the medical, insurance, legal and property consequences of a car accident. We handle the insurance company, help you obtain a rental car and protect your interests in negotiations or through the court system.
- Truck Accidents. A collision with a commercial truck can have catastrophic consequences. We have the skills and experience handle complex claims involving commercial trucking companies. We can maximize your recovery for personal injuries, bodily injury, economic loss and property damage.
- Motorcycle Accidents. Bikers have less physical protection when on the road, so it stands that they often suffer more serious, life-threatening injuries when involved in a motorcycle accident. We help injured riders in Maryland obtain the compensation they need to get well and protect their families.
- Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents. Cyclists and pedestrians face unique dangers, especially in city environments. If you were injured in Baltimore or throughout Maryland, we can help.
Our Maryland personal injury lawyers also handle complex claims involving taxis and ridesharing vehicles, as well as buses, tour vehicles and boats. We have the resources to handle complex claims arising from train derailments and collisions, as well.
The personal injury firm you know and trust
Our firm is a plaintiffs’ personal injury firm. That means we only represent the injured. For the last three decades, we have been the firm your friends and loved ones have turned to when they have sustained serious, even life-altering injuries, as the result of someone else’s negligence. We proudly represent clients in cases involving:
- Product Liability. When you have sustained an injury from a defective or dangerous product, you may be able to make a claim against the designer, manufacturer or retailer. We handle complex liability claims involving medications, auto parts, toys, electronics and more.
- Premises Liability. When you sustain an injury on another person’s property that is related to their negligence, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. Broken guardrails or stairs, an attack by the neighbor’s dog, or poorly maintained walkways: all of these can lead to injuries on another person’s property.
- Medical Malpractice. If you suffered injury due to a hospital or doctor’s negligence, you need an aggressive and prepared advocate on your side. We handle a variety of medical malpractice claims, including surgical errors and labor delivery errors that cause birth injuries such as cerebral palsy.
- Nursing Home Negligence. The Maryland Department of Aging received almost 20,000 complaints in 2015 about potential acts of abuse against vulnerable persons. Many of these alleged violence, financial fraud, neglect and abuse of the elderly in nursing home and assisted living facilities. We advocate on behalf of your loved ones, and fight to ensure they are safe and secure.
- Wrongful Death. If you lost someone you love to due to the negligence or recklessness of another, talk to our experienced team of wrongful death attorneys. You do not have to bear the financial consequences of this tragic event by yourself.
It is important to understand that if you do not hire the right lawyer, you could lose some or all of your legal rights to pursue a claim. The statute of limitations for injury claims, wrongful death claims and medical malpractice claims is, generally but not always three years. Failure to file a claim within that time period could bar you from recovering. We strongly recommend you hire a lawyer as soon as possible to deal with the insurance carriers while you recover from your injuries.
Protecting the rights and futures of Maryland’s workforce
Sometimes, an injury is severe enough that it leaves you or your loved one unable to work. If you have been injured on the job, or developed an illness as a result of your work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Insurance carriers employ lawyers and adjusters to minimize your recovery. This is often the case for accidents that occur in the workplace. We fight to protect your rights, so you can protect your family. Workers’ compensation claims have a shorter and stricter notice requirement. You should hire us shortly following your work related injury.
If your injury or illness leaves you disabled and unable to work at all, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability. Our team assists you through the initial application process, so you have the best possible chance at obtaining benefits. If you have tried to file and been denied, we can help you with the appeal, and represent you in front of an Administrative Law Judge if necessary.
