Areas of Law Description
At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we help put lives back together by helping you with cases involving:
- Personal Injury Claims
If you have been physically or psychologically injured as the result of the negligent or unreasonably unsafe actions of a manufacturer, doctor, landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care, talk to the personal injury attorneys at Plaxen & Adler, P.A. to handle your personal injury claim. We have the expertise required to handle complex causation issues and damage determinations, and we will work to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
- Automobile Accidents
Even a simple automobile accident can lead to a lawsuit involving multiple parties and multiple theories of liability. The experienced auto accident attorneys at Plaxen & Adler, P.A. will ensure that your rights are protected by exploring all case aspects, involved parties and potential theories of liability. Our experience with personal injury claims makes us uniquely qualified to handle the multiple issues that arise in accidents that involve automobiles, motorcycles, and commercial vehicles such as trucks.
- Medical Malpractice
Physicians or other healthcare providers are liable for wrongful acts, omissions, breaches of fiduciary duty, or malpractice due to negligence in the performance of professional services to patients. If the plaintiff proves the liability of the health care provider, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the defendant had a duty to the patient, that such duty was breached by failing to conform to the required standard of care, and that negligent conduct caused harm to the patient, compensation for the damages can be claimed. Expert testimony is required to prove that the injury was caused by the negligence of the practitioner.
- Workers Compensation
If you've been hurt on the job, you need experienced attorneys like us to help you with the complex workers' compensation law. Employers have big insurance companies with lawyers who don't want you to get paid for your work-related injuries. You may even have co-workers or a manager tell you not to file a claim. We will assist in documenting your claim and filing the necessary claim forms in order to obtain payment of your benefits.
- Social Security Disability Claims
If you are unable to work for more than a year, you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits or Supplemental Security Insurance benefits or both. Unfortunately, the claims process can be frustrating. Sometimes, a disabled person must file multiple appeals. We can help. For more than a decade, we have successfully assisted many disabled people throughout Maryland, the District of Columbia, and other states who were initially denied in their request for benefits. We have taken cases through the appellate process and all the way to federal court.
- Product Liability
Product liability becomes an issue when a person is injured due to the sale or manufacture of a defective product. The seller and/or manufacturer may become liable if they misrepresented the product, negligently manufactured or sold the product, caused a breach of warranty, or failed to warn of a known danger. If you have been injured by a defective product, you need the product liability experience Plaxen & Adler, P.A. can provide. We are well-versed in product liability law, including class action lawsuits by groups of people who have been hurt by the same product.
- Premises Liability
If an injury occurs on property that has been improperly designed, constructed, or maintained, or is otherwise in a dangerous or unsafe condition, the landowner or other responsible party may be liable for damages that occur as a result of your injuries. In most cases, the person with the unsafe property has insurance that can compensate you for your injuries. We can help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
- Wrongful Death
At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we understand that plaintiffs in wrongful death lawsuits deserve special care and treatment. We strive to ease your burdens by handling all of the details for your lawsuit and securing financial compensation for your future. If you have a loved one who died because of the negligent, reckless, or intentional act of another, we can help.
- Slip & Fall Injuries
If you have slipped and fallen because of a slippery substance or other unsafe condition in a store, place of business, or on another piece of property, the property owner may be responsible for your damages under the theory of premises liability. Broken sidewalks, steps without warning, torn or loose carpeting, manholes, change of levels with no caution, and uneven grounds lead to slip and fall litigation. Let the slip & fall injury lawyers of Plaxen & Adler, P.A. work to ensure that you are compensated for any property owner negligence.
- Animal Attacks
An estimated 4.7 million people in the U.S. are bitten by dogs every year. About 800,000 require medical attention, and nearly a dozen of those injuries are fatal. The potential for liability exceeds $1 billion every year. Animal owners have a duty to protect you from injuries. If you've been injured by an animal, Plaxen & Adler, P.A. will protect your rights.
- Cerebral Palsy
Plaxen and Adler and their affiliated medical malpractice team of attorneys have substantial expertise fighting on behalf of children born with cerebral palsy and brain damage. With an impressive history of verdicts and settlements on behalf of hundreds of children and their families, we have obtained judicial decisions that have resulted in generous life time benefits. A favorable verdict could mean that your child’s financial needs will be taken care of for life.
- Fungal Meningitis
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported that patients who received a steroid injection between May 21 and September 24, 2012 are at risk for contracting a fungal based form of Meningitis due to a contaminated steroid that was manufactured by New England Compounding Center of Framingham, Massachusetts. The steroid, preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate, was given primarily as an injection for back pain relief.
