Guiding You Toward Your New Normal After Catastrophic Injuries

Although any injury can be costly and negatively impact a person’s life, catastrophic injuries change lives in fundamentally profound ways. At Rowe, Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we help victims of negligence recover financial compensation after suffering life-altering catastrophic injuries of all types.

We seek full compensation to cover the cost of current and future medical care needs, replace lost income and future earning capacity and provide for as much quality of life, personal dignity and peace of mind as possible. We provide personalized service in Maryland, Virginia and the Washington, D.C., region.

Anything Can Cause A Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries are caused by nearly every type of accident. Most commonly, we see catastrophic injuries that result from serious motor vehicle accidents, such as car collisions, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and other accidents. However, catastrophic injuries can also result from defective products, slip-and-fall accidents, catastrophic sports injuries, medical negligence and workplace injuries. No matter your type of injury, we can help you determine fault and build a case to seek compensation for your suffering.

Are You Suffering From A Neck, Back Or Spine Injury? Get Definitive Representation.

A neck or back injury that happens in just a few minutes can have a lasting effect. Many people face a lifetime of pain and paralysis. Unable to work or do the things they once enjoyed, they turn to our Maryland law firm for answers. You can be certain of two things: Our personal injury law firm is ready to protect your interests with our extensive experience, access to leading experts and a wealth of other resources, and we will always be available to provide the answers and support you may need during this difficult time. Our goal is to use our legal experience to seek the compensation you deserve from the faulty party, and stand by your side from the accident scene to when you receive compensation for the financial damages (loss of wages, medical bills, etc.) and noneconomic damages (loss of bodily function, pain and suffering, etc.) you experienced.

Fighting For The Financial Support That Burn Injury Victims Deserve

Burn injuries are some of the most painful and disabling injuries an individual can suffer. Multiple surgeries and months in the hospital may be necessary simply for survival. Even after extensive treatment, burn injury victims may never look, feel or move the same way they once did.

When you choose us, you will have the confidence that comes with knowing that you are being protected by attorneys who have proven their ability to achieve outstanding results in even the most complex cases. Our personal injury law attorneys have the proven legal skills, courtroom experience and legal knowledge to make a real difference in the outcome of your case and pursue a settlement worth millions of dollars. We are also selective about accepting cases to ensure maximum personal attention and responsiveness for each of our clients, including you.

Getting Help Sooner Is Better For Burn Cases

Burn victims struggle in many ways, often long after the initial burn from medical malpractice, premises liability injuries, workplace accidents, or motor vehicle accidents. Not only does burn care often mean a high risk of infection, lifelong scarring and major surgeries, but it also often comes with ongoing pain, limited mobility and other consequences. Burn victims can get compensation, but the legal system is challenging.

It is absolutely vital that you speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible. The enormous economic and personal costs of a severe burn injury often put defendants and their insurance companies on the offensive in terms of looking for ways to minimize their losses. Unfortunately, the pure contributory negligence standard used by Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia means if the defense can establish that you were even 1% at fault, you will not recover anything at all.

Dedication, Guidance And Powerful Advocacy For Scarring Injuries

When the negligent or reckless conduct of another leads to scarring and disfigurement, the emotional, physical and financial losses can be overwhelming. If this is what you are dealing with right now, you should know that your family does not have to bear these costs alone. The law provides you with the right to seek maximum compensation and hold the responsible party fully accountable for scarring injuries.

We use in-depth knowledge of the law to successfully represent the victims of scarring and disfigurement. Our law firm was founded to protect the interests of adults and children who have been injured by others and to obtain the compensation each of those clients deserves. Individuals and families who have been injured by scarring and disfigurement choose us for the experience, resources and determination we have shown in fighting negligent companies and individuals. They choose us because they know we will be here, available to provide legal advice and be responsive to their needs throughout the legal process.

From the moment we take your case until a favorable resolution is reached, we are dedicated to providing the highest possible levels of representation. Our dedicated team truly cares about putting your interests first in the personal injury claim process.

Are You Eligible For A Personal Injury Case?

Our team of trial lawyers will thoroughly investigate and carefully review all the evidence surrounding your accident and explore every possible source of compensation. We also have access to leading spine injury medical professionals and rehabilitation specialists in the area and will do our best to make certain that you get the medical attention that you need.

Our personal injury lawyers are highly experienced and can help you file a personal injury suit in cases such as the following:

  • A car accident leads to serious whiplash and lasting neck damage.
  • A fall on unrepaired property leads to spinal injuries.
  • A construction site accident leads to brain damage or other neurologic injuries.
  • An accident of any type or another’s negligence leads to a head injury.
  • A dangerous product results in a product liability injury.
  • Unsafe conditions lead to a construction accident.

From the moment you choose us to work with you, we will operate under the assumption that a trial will be absolutely necessary to get you the fair compensation you rightfully deserve. At the same time, we know that taking a tough stance does little good without putting in the hard work necessary to win. So hard work is our specialty.

Powerful Wrongful Death Advocacy For Those Left Behind

The emotional and economic damage that families suffer in connection with the wrongful deaths of loved ones can be just as devastating as any physical injury. As a survivor, you have the right to see that those responsible for your loved one’s fatal injuries are held accountable, and you have the right to seek compensation for what you have lost. Our lawyers represent families of wrongful death victims throughout Maryland, the Washington, D.C., metro area, and northern Virginia.

It May Have Been An Accident, But There Are Still Consequences

The need to preserve evidence, locate witnesses and make certain that wrongful death claims are filed in a timely fashion makes it important to hire legal representation as soon as possible. You can depend on our legal team to protect your legal rights and interests, and in the process, give yourself more time and energy to focus on grieving and being with loved ones.

Our firm focuses on the legal core of your case, whether your loved one passed due to a drunk driver, a dangerous workplace incident or a medical error. We will make certain that you have the information you need to make decisions with confidence, and we will ensure that you, your family, your legal rights and your interests are protected at every turn.
