Why work with Greenbelt and Seabrook personal injury attorneys?

What are some common causes of car crashes?
Car crashes are one of the most common forms of personal injury. There are many different causes of car crashes that can occur and cause serious injuries and even death. Here are some of the factors that can contribute to car accidents:
|· Drunk or drugged driving|
· Distracted driving
· Drowsy/fatigued driving
· Poor weather conditions
· Defective automotive equipment
If the cause of the crash was the negligence of another driver, you may be able to take legal action against the responsible party. We can represent you and protect your right to recover compensation for your injuries.
You might become injured using mass transit vehicles, such as buses or the Metro, or in catastrophic cases involving Amtrak trains and plane crashes.
If you suffer an injury after a motor vehicle crash involving a car, commercial truck, or motorcycle, you may have mounting medical bills and you may have missed work while recuperating.
When is it appropriate to file a medical malpractice claim?
You might file a medical malpractice lawsuit against a primary care physician, rehabilitation center, emergency room doctor, hospital administrator, or nursing home doctor whose negligence caused your injury. When you can provide evidence that the medical professional’s failure to comport with the accepted standard of care was the direct cause of your injury, you may be able to bring a legal claim to recover compensation.
Workers’ compensation for injures on the job
We help employees file workers’ compensation claims and appeals, for those who were hurt on the job, or were subjected to unsafe working environments resulting in occupational diseases.
Maryland workers’ compensation offers medical expenses, a partial wage replacement, temporary disability benefit, and vocational rehabilitation services for injured workers.
A Maryland workers’ compensation attorney from Plaxen & Adler can represent you in a dispute with your employer’s insurer or with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Who can you sue when you have been injured on someone else’s property?
When injured on public property, such as tripping on an uneven patch of sidewalk or after being attacked by a dog, you may be able to take legal action against the property owner. If you attended a party at a night club and you became injured because a fight broke out, or you were walking to your car after shopping and you were assaulted in the parking lot, these are examples of negligent security, and you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries, your medical bills, and other expenses arising out of the incident. We can protect your right to recover compensation.
You lost a loved one in an accident because of negligence. Can you file a wrongful death claim?
You may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit after another person’s negligence has led to the tragic death of a loved one. In Maryland, you must either be a primary beneficiary– the surviving spouse, parent or child of the deceased, or a secondary beneficiary, which would be a sibling, cousin, niece or nephew. A compassionate Maryland wrongful death lawyer can guide you through the complicated process of pursuing justice on behalf of your lost loved one.
