Experienced Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers Taking Referrals
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Randolph Rice have ample experience handling all types of personal injury cases. Many personal injury claims involve complex topics, often because of the injuries or medical conditions the victim suffered. Our lawyers are well-versed in the following types of injuries:
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other non-traumatic brain injuries brought about through chemical exposure are often complex. Our lawyers have experience fighting these kinds of cases and showing jurors how the injury formed and why the defendant is responsible for these injuries. Especially when these injuries have complex causes, such as in cerebral palsy and birth injury cases, our lawyers’ experience and understanding are invaluable tools.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Similarly, spinal cord injuries are often complex and require some experience and knowledge to discuss the case with a lay jury. Our lawyers understand the ramifications of injuries to the C4 or C5 vertebra and their potential to cause quadriplegia, and we know that even minor car accidents and traumatic injuries can cause serious or long-lasting injuries through whiplash and low back injuries.
Many surgical procedures result in nerve damage through a few possible mechanisms. The first and most obvious potential cause of nerve damage is through severing a nerve, which is often the basis of a surgical error claim. Nerve injuries and partial paralysis can also occur during a childbirth case, where misuse of forceps and other tools could cause injury to the facial nerve, leading to facial paralysis. Lastly, positioning injuries from cramped or bent limbs could cause partial paralysis, numbness, and nerve damage. Our attorneys have experience that will help us handle these kinds of claims.
Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injuries
Our attorneys can take referral cases from divorce or child custody cases dealing with children with cerebral palsy (CP). Many parents discover their newborns or young infants suffer from cerebral palsy, but they do not investigate further the cause of those injuries. Many people think children are born with CP, but many of these conditions actually result from injuries sustained during childbirth.
Damages for Personal Injury Cases in Maryland
Our attorneys work to get full damages for our clients. Many people settle for insurance claims when they are injured without realizing that an insurance company often pays only a portion of the damages you could be entitled to in a lawsuit. First, the damages for medical expenses and lost wages might be paid only in part, and second, the damages for pain and suffering may be entirely unavailable in an insurance claim.
If your client suffered serious injuries, they may require surgery, emergency medical care, medical imaging, follow-up visits, rehabilitation, and mental health counseling to deal with the effects of an injury. Our lawyers can work to get them full compensation to cover these damages so that the defendant is responsible for the full costs the victim incurred.
Our lawyers also fight to get our clients damages for their lost wages. If a parent or spouse is injured and unable to go to work to support their family, a lawsuit might be necessary to get the family the compensation they need. These damages are often simple enough to calculate for past lost wages, but to project future lost wages, you may need to use a financial expert to project how long the victim could have continued working and how much earning capacity they lost because of the injury. Our lawyers are familiar with these kinds of damage projects and calculations.
Pain and suffering damages are often confusing to many injury victims. Our lawyers understand that these damages reflect the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish the victim faced. Our attorneys work to argue for substantial damages by providing the jury with evidence of the victim’s pain and discomfort and their reduced enjoyment in various activities they used to love. Our lawyers can help your client figure out what their case is worth and fight their case in court if necessary.
Damages for the loss of a loved one in a wrongful death lawsuit may involve some of these costs, but other damages often come from odd places. Our lawyers work to get compensation for funeral expenses, burial costs, lost companionship, lost household services, lost investments, lost inheritances, and other damages in a wrongful death case.
