Fighting For The Compensation That Maryland’s Injured Deserve

An accident that impacts your health can lead to radical lifestyle changes. You may need to spend significant time recovering from injuries, or you might find that you are no longer able to work. In the worst cases, you have lost a loved one and may be confused about your rights.

Personal Injury Cases Can Be A Much-Needed Lifeline For Victims

Accidents, injuries and the ways in which those injuries affect individual lives and families are different from one personal injury claim to the next. The nature of your injury and the circumstances around it will change your prospects. But one thing is constant: If you have an injury because of someone’s recklessness, we can help.

Our firm is known for excellent representation in cases such as:

At Rowe, Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC, we believe our clients deserve personalized and compassionate care. Therefore, we take fewer cases – so that we can focus on you and your needs throughout your full recovery.

Your Injury Impacts Your Life Uniquely

Injuries from accidents caused by another party’s negligence are not only serious, but they are also life-changing. We help our clients find the appropriate medical care, so they receive their necessary treatment while we are working for them to receive the compensation they deserve.

Specifically, below is a sampling of the common injuries our clients need help recovering from.

Brain Injuries

In some cases, a brain injury is the result of direct head trauma, such as a blunt strike to the head. In other cases, the brain crashes against the inside of the skull; the sudden deceleration common in many car, truck and motorcycle accidents is a known cause of these types of brain injuries. In either case, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can develop and often go undetected for weeks or months, so immediate medical attention and follow-up appointments will be crucial.

Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bites can have serious impacts. Not only is the initial healing process often difficult and prone to infection, but dog bites can also lead to lifelong consequences, either due to muscle damage or disfigurement. It may seem like there is no real way to hold anyone accountable for a dog bite. But owners are responsible for the care, maintenance and safety of their animals and can be liable for the damage they cause.

Injuries Caused By Defective Products

Manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure that their products are safe to use as intended or for reasonably foreseeable purposes. In the case of an inherently dangerous product, such as a chemical, power tool or piece of machinery used in the workplace, manufacturers must also include adequate instructions and warnings to prevent injuries. Unfortunately, simply for the sake of increasing profits, these minimum expectations go unmet.

Injuries To Children

When a child’s injury is the result of the negligent or reckless conduct of another, the emotional, physical and financial losses can be overwhelming. Your family does not have to bear these costs alone. The law provides you with the right to seek compensation and hold the responsible parties fully accountable for the harm that they have caused. In our practice, we represent children whose injuries are the result of dangerous or defective products, automobile accidents, property owner negligence, dog bites and medical negligence.

Premises Liability Claims

Accidents involving property owner negligence are part of an area of tort law that attorneys refer to as premises liability. This area of the law is essentially based on the idea that property owners should not expose people who have a reason or right to be on a property to unreasonable risk of harm. In premises liability law, our law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death claims involving tripping accidents or slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites or other kinds of animal attacks, privately or commercially owned swimming pools, and accidents at amusement parks.

Workplace Injuries

We are experienced workers’ compensation attorneys who understand how the pain and stress of a work injury can feel overwhelming. We do everything possible within the scope of the law to help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you depend on. We’ve supported clients who were victims of construction accidents, as well as accidents in factories, industrial plants and warehouses. We handle many aspects of workers’ compensation law and are highly prepared to answer any questions you may have. Unlike some workers’ compensation law firms, we choose our cases selectively so that our clients receive personal attention from the lawyers they hire.

The sooner you get in touch with us, the better we will be able to protect your rights and seek the full amount of compensation you deserve.

What Are Some FAQs About Personal Injury Cases?

The aftermath of a car accident or other type of personal injury accident can leave you with many questions. Our personal injury lawyers have compiled a list of several frequently asked questions from our clients that may answer some of your initial questions and give you a feel for our approach to these cases.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have lingering or further questions after reading.

What is a personal injury?

Personal injury is an injury to the body or mind caused by another party’s negligence. If you’re suffering due to someone else’s negligence, you may be deserving of compensation. Call us today for a free consultation to evaluate your case.

What type of damages can I qualify for?

A ton of factors can come into play, such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of wages and more. We would need to evaluate every component of your case to determine how much compensation to seek.

Is filing a lawsuit always necessary?

Most claims reach a settlement without the trauma of a lawsuit. Speaking to our experienced attorneys will help determine if you are entitled to file a lawsuit to seek the appropriate amount of compensation we believe you deserve.

Do I have to go to court to collect earnings?

If we settle your case out of court, you will never have to step foot in a courtroom! We will negotiate with the insurance companies to get the maximum compensation possible. However, if the insurance companies are unwilling to provide an adequate settlement, we will likely need to proceed to trial, in which you will need to go to court.

What is negligence?

Negligence is the failure to take proper or reasonable care, resulting in damage/injury to another party. Evidence or proof of negligence is necessary for a personal injury claim to be successful.

How long can I wait to file a personal injury claim?

The range of time in which you must file a lawsuit is known as the statute of limitations. If you do not file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, the court will not review your case. Depending on the state you are in and the type of personal injury case, you need to speak to an attorney to determine the statute of limitations for your specific case.

What do I tell the insurance companies when they call me?

Do NOT sign anything from the insurance companies that you do not understand. They are usually looking for a quick settlement where they will give you a lowball offer as it is in their best interest not to proceed to trial. After you retain our firm, we will address everything with the insurance companies moving forward and give you peace of mind.

The insurance company said I don’t need an attorney – is that true?

Depending on your case, the insurance companies could only be looking out for their financial interests. It is important to speak to an attorney to ensure you have a valid case and that insurance adjusters act fairly.

What am I responsible for if I lose the case?

You will not be responsible for any incurred expenses.

Is my case big enough for a lawyer to handle?

Our team of experienced attorneys will take any case where we believe you’ve suffered due to negligence, no matter the size of the case.

How much is my consultation fee with Rowe, Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC?

Free! We do not charge our clients for personal injury consultations!

How do I know who was at fault in my auto accident?

We need to evaluate the facts of the case to determine who was at fault. While the insurance companies will often argue who was at fault, our job is to make sure we can prove negligence to get you the compensation you deserve.
