Medical malpractice from preventable medical errors
As the third leading cause of death in the United States, preventable medical errors are far too commonplace. But simply because a medical error occurred, it does not always give rise to a medical malpractice claim. The following are a few of the more common forms medical mistakes can take:
- Misdiagnosis/ diagnostic errors
- Failure to treat
- Medication error
- Anesthesia error
- Failure of informed consent
- Wrong site, wrong side, wrong patient errors
When a medical professional fails to comply with the accepted standard of care and this breach of the standard leads to injury, the injured person may have a cause to file a medical malpractice claim. An experienced medical malpractice attorney from Plaxen & Adler is ready to discuss your case and advise you about your legal options.

If your worker’s compensation claim was denied, or you are facing any other type of dispute with your employer’s insurer or with the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission, we are here to represent you and make sure that you get the benefits that are due to you when you get injured doing your job.
Injuries from accidents on public and private property
Businesses and organizations that open their premises to the public owe their patrons, clients, and visitors a duty of care to ensure that their property is free of hazards. In situations where a hazardous condition is known, the property owner must warn the public to be aware of it and avoid the hazard, such as closing off a stairway that is unstable, or placing a warning sign when a floor is wet.
Some examples of possible premises liability claims include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents on a slippery, damaged, uneven floor or ground
- Poor lighting
- Inadequate security
- Dog bites/ animal attacks
- Pool accidents
- Hotel/resort assaults
- Malfunctioning escalators or elevators
Injuries caused by defective products
When you purchase a product, you have the expectation that it is going to perform as advertised and that it will not cause you harm. Sometimes, defective products do cause harm. A cell phone can explode in flames in your pocket, the air bag in a vehicle can explode unexpectedly and injure or kill the driver, a defective medical device can cause injury, or a dangerous drug can cause adverse side effects. Some examples of defective products include:
- Defective air bags
- Defective tires
- Faulty brakes or accelerators
- Defective seat backs or seat belts
- Defective drugs
- Defective medical devices
- Defective toys and furniture
Our Owings Mills product liability lawyers can help you recover compensation when a defective product has caused your injury.
Seeking justice for the wrongful death of a loved one
When you have lost a loved one due to the negligent or reckless actions or another, the wrongful death attorneys at Plaxen & Adler offer compassionate counsel for you and your family as you move through the difficult process of seeking justice on his or her behalf. We can help you recover the compensation that will help protect your family’s future.
Whether your loved one died in a car accident, in a workplace accident due to a medical error, or any other type of accident that was a result of the negligence of another person, we can help you to pursue damages for medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, pain and suffering, loss of future earnings, loss of companionship and other damages. Maryland has placed a cap on non-economic damages such as loss of companionship, but there is no cap on economic losses.
Support for your Social Security Disability claims and appeals
If you have accrued enough work credits at a job that is covered by Social Security, and if your physical or mental health condition qualifies as a disability according to the SSA, you may apply for Social Security Disability Benefits. One of the challenges with the SSD program is that more applicants have their claims denied than are approved, so many people find themselves going through the appeals process. If you are already disabled to the point where you are unable to work, why not avail yourself of the professional services of a resourceful and experienced Disability lawyer? You never pay up front because we receive our payment out of the back payment that you receive once your benefits have been approved.
