Comprehensive Counsel for Patients with Brain Injuries

Helping Maryland victims of medical malpractice since 1985

The human brain is a particularly resilient organ. And yet every year, a multitude of brain injury cases reported. Many of those cases are the direct result of an accident or injury, but medical malpractice plays a large part as well. When negligence on behalf of medical personnel results in a brain injury, the consequences can be catastrophic ­– even fatal.

At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we are committed to helping personal injury victims in Maryland who suffered a brain injury because of negligent, inattentive or poorly trained healthcare providers. We put our combined 66 years of experience behind every malpractice case we take on, ensuring that our clients receive the highest quality of care. As Maryland’s premier personal injury law firm, is it our honor and our duty to treat each client with respect, dignity and compassion, and to work aggressively on our clients’ behalf to obtain the compensation they need to move forward.

How medical malpractice can result in a brain injury

Despite its resilience, the human brain is a very sensitive organ. More often than not, an error can end up causing long-lasting or even permanent damage. Brain injuries are often the result of a different medical error, such as:

  • Surgical errors, such as the slip of a scalpel
  • A doctor’s failure to diagnosis a stroke or an aneurism
  • Complications during the birthing process which result in oxygen deprivation or a damaged skull
  • Medication errors, including administration of the wrong dosage or the wrong mediation
  • Failure to properly administer anesthesia, which may result in oxygen loss or a decreased blow flow
  • Infections, caused by unsterile an environment, or contaminated surgical tools or medical products

These injuries may impair motor skills, result in permanent paralysis or lead to extensive nerve damage. In the most tragic circumstances, a serious brain injury could ultimately result in the wrongful death of your loved one – a price too high to pay. It is imperative that you speak with an attorney who has both the resources and the experience to handle even the most complex medical malpractice claims.

At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., our attorneys have both. Because we have a niche focus on birth injuries as well as contaminated injections, we understand all too well what it takes to handle a medical malpractice case efficiently and effectively. We partner with medical experts when necessary to build a stronger case against the healthcare providers who caused you or your loved one needless suffering and additional harm. Our relentless pursuit of justice for our client has contributed to our reputation as formidable litigators and negotiators – but our genuine sympathy for the plight of our clients is what continues to generate the referrals we receive from previous clients. Our attorneys have focused only on personal injury for their entire careers, giving them the added advantage of anticipating how laws change, and how judges may choose to interpret them. At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we do one thing only, and we do it well. That’s our promise to you.
