Areas of Law Description
At Plaxen & Adler, P.A., we help put lives back together by helping you with cases involving:
- 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.
- Medical Malpractice
Physicians or other health care 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 lifetime benefits.
