Experienced Injury Attorneys Serving Baltimore Residents

At Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC, we know just how important it is to always inform ourselves about new and changing aspects of the law. It seems like every time you turn on the news, a new law, regulation, or court case is being discussed. In order for our clients and the public to make the most informed decisions about how to proceed with their legal rights, we maintain seven different blogs on our website. Our personal injury lawyers have been serving the needs of accident victims in Baltimore and elsewhere in Maryland for over 20 years.

Motor Vehicle Accident Blogs

Lebowitz & Mzhen, LLC maintains three blogs dedicated to important issues affecting car crashes, truck accidents, and motorcycle collisions. In order to pursue compensation after a motor vehicle accident, a plaintiff usually must show that the defendant was driving negligently. The first two elements of a negligence claim are duty and breach. Each driver has the obligation to operate his or her vehicle with the same ordinary care and skill that a reasonably prudent driver would use in a similar situation, taking into account the current weather and road conditions as well as obeying traffic laws. To establish a breach, the victim must show that the defendant failed to act according to the duty of care. The third element of a negligence claim, causation, requires a plaintiff to prove that he or she would not have been harmed but for the defendant’s breach. Finally, the victim must provide evidence of the damages that he or she suffered, often including medical expenses, physical therapy, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, property damage, and pain and suffering.

In addition to our three blogs on specific types of motor vehicle collisions, we also offer one blog on more general types of Maryland accidents and another blog on Washington, D.C. accidents.

Pharmacy Misfills and Medication Errors

We place a great deal of trust in our health care providers to give us the right medications in the right dosages. Unfortunately, some pharmacists are overworked or fail to pay attention while they are filling prescriptions. If you or someone you know has suffered an injury as the result of a pharmacy error, you may be entitled to compensation. To recover damages, a plaintiff generally must establish that the pharmacist was acting negligently. This requires proving the same four elements of negligence: duty, breach, causation, and damages. In the context of a pharmacy misfill or medication error case, the duty of care requires a pharmacist to employ the same practices and procedures that a similarly qualified pharmacist from the same geographical region would use for a patient with a similar condition.

Nursing Home Negligence

Unfortunately, many senior citizens who reside in nursing homes are subjected to appalling abuse. A nursing home case can fall into three categories: abuse, neglect, and medical malpractice. Abuse constitutes the willful and intentional infliction of injury, which can range from sexual to financial exploitation. A case involving neglect is similar to a negligence action and requires a plaintiff to show that the victim suffered an injury as the result of the nursing home’s inaction or indifference. Medical malpractice cases arise all too often from nursing home misconduct. Many senior citizens deal with severe conditions and diseases that require frequent and prudent monitoring. Sadly, they often do not receive the appropriate medications and treatment that they need from properly qualified professionals.

I am proud to have had Lebowitz & Mzhen represent me in an automobile personal injury case I was involved with. Not only did they come through with a settlement worth far more than I thought possible, the entire office was always friendly, knowledgeable, and ready to answer any questions I had. Should an incident like this occur again, I will not hesitate to contact Lebowitz & Mzhen for their counsel, advice and representation, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking honest and effective attorneys.
