Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers Pursue Compensation for Plaintiffs

Established Baltimore Metro firm has a legacy of assisting negligence victims

When you’ve suffered a personal injury, it’s important to find an attorney who understands the potential value of a legal claim and can hold the liable parties accountable. The lawyers of Holzman & Associates, L.L.C. in Baltimore have established themselves as strong advocates who work closely with clients to maximize their compensation. In court and settlement negotiations, we represent the interests of people who have been hurt in vehicle accidents, falls, workplace injuries and other incidents where carelessness or intentional acts caused physical harm. At every phase of your case, we’ll explain your options clearly and press for the payment you deserve.

Thorough litigators take on a full range of vehicle accident claims

The high level of travel activity in the Baltimore area poses a danger to drivers, passengers, pedestrians and people using other type of vehicles. Our firm delivers comprehensive legal support for people hurt in accidents involving:

  • Cars — After an auto accident, we deliver sound representation for insurance claims and litigation.
  • Trucks — Drivers and the owners of commercial vehicles must follow strict rules on maintenance, load weight and driver rest. As part of our review, we’ll see if any regulations were violated.
  • Motorcycles — A collision between a motorcycle and a larger vehicle could cause serious harm. Whether the crash stemmed from inattention to the road or a failure to follow the law, our lawyers work tirelessly to secure the relief bikers deserve.
  • Pedestrians — If a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, we look to secure fair compensation and fight any attempts to shift the blame onto the victim.
  • Airplanes — Determining who is at fault for a plane crash can be a complicated task. In situations involving all types of aircraft, we have the ability and background to perform a thorough investigation and find the culpable parties.

Our firm offers a free initial consultation and works on contingency so you pay no legal fees until you receive payment through a verdict or settlement.

Skilled advocates assist people hurt in falls and by defective products

Plaintiffs in Maryland must overcome the state’s tough contributory negligence standard. This rule means that if the victim shared even the smallest amount of fault for their injury, they cannot collect damages in a verdict. We counter the unwarranted arguments of defendants, their lawyers and insurers in actions that concern:

  • Defective products — Our products liability litigators take action against negligent manufacturers, designers and sellers when a product flaw leads to injury.
  • Workplace injuries — Victims of job-related accidents and illnesses rely on us for comprehensive support during personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
  • Dog bites — If you were bit by a dog bite and required medical treatment, we’ll outline whether the strict liability standard applies and strive to win full reimbursement for your injury.
  • Slip and fall injuries — Slippery floors, unseen hazards and other failures to take reasonable precautions trigger slip and fall injuries that frequently result in broken bones and other types of harm.
  • Traumatic brain injuries — Unlike some other injuries, the effects of a blow to the head might not be immediately apparent. At all times, we consider the potential long-term consequences in traumatic brain injury matters.

Under Maryland law, most injury victims have three years from the incident date to file a lawsuit. However, if you’re suing a state government entity, notice of the claim must be submitted within one year. In matters where it might take time for someone to understand the true extent of the harm (a cancer-causing product, for example), the clock runs from the date a reasonable person would have discovered the condition. For children and individuals who are not competent, the statute of limitations is paused until they turn 18 or regain their capacity to handle legal matters.

Knowledgeable attorneys obtain damages for medical bills and lost wages

An injury victim can collect damages as reimbursement for medical costs, income that wasn’t earned while they were out of work and other expenses stemming from the defendant’s negligence. Compensation is also available for pain and suffering. We take a close look at your case and assess what type of reimbursement you can expect in a judgment or settlement. As attorneys with decades of combined experience in this field, we are aware of what plaintiffs in similar situations received as well as the impact of statutory damage caps on specific types of claims.

Dedicated firm advises on wrongful death and survival actions

Should someone’s negligence or willful act cause a fatality, surviving family members and the victim’s estate can sue for damages. Plaintiffs can obtain reimbursement for funeral costs, wages that the decedent would have earned and the medical bills that accumulated prior to the wrongful death. In cases of fatal accidents, our firm presses for compensation by bringing wrongful death and survival actions.
