Originally settled in 1752, Towson takes its name from the two brothers who owned a farm northeast of the current York and Joppa Roads. Sixteen years after the founding, the son of one brother opened the Towson Hotel at that same location to help provide lodging and meals to other farmers heading through the area as increased commerce began to flow through the area to the port of Baltimore. The area soon became known as "Towsontown."
A century later, Towson was made the county seat of Baltimore County, after which the Baltimore County Jail and a local courthouse were both erected to serve the area. That courthouse still exists today in Towson, though it has been expanded in size several times since the turn of the 20th Century. Used to this day, the Towson courthouse is the location for the Baltimore County Circuit Court at 401 Bosley Ave. This courthouse is the trial court of general jurisdiction for the area and has full common law and equity powers in all cases of criminal, civil, juvenile and family law.
As Maryland personal injury attorneys, Lebowitz & Mzhen’s trial lawyers are experienced in representing our clients in courtrooms here in Towson, or elsewhere throughout the state. As skilled litigators, our firm understands how to properly prepare a legal suit with the intention to go to court and make each client’s case. However, we also know that a well-planned court case can also result in a pretrial settlement. In such instances, an out-of-court or pre-trial settlement can often help to avoid protracted litigation.
As qualified personal injury attorneys dealing in auto accident, medical malpractice and other civil lawsuits, we are well versed in the litigation of court cases in jurisdictions all around central Maryland. In the end, our main objective is to serve our clients well and obtain the best possible outcomes. In addition to representing victims who have been hurt or seriously injured, we also fight for the families whose loved ones have died as a result of another person’s negligence.
Back in 1900, Towson was still a relatively rural community with land being sold by the acre instead of by the smaller home parcel, which came later as the area started to become more populated. By the end of World War II, there was a marked an increase in commercial development throughout Towson’s downtown area; a result of suburban expansion all around Baltimore. Today, Towson’s 14 square miles are home to more than 55,000 residents, some of whom have experienced some kind of personal injury accident during their lifetime.
Many people living in neighborhoods throughout the Towson area, such as Idlewylde, Rodgers Forge, Wiltondale and Hunt Crest Estates, may find they need legal representation when it comes to accidents and other incidents resulting in personal injury. Lebowitz & Mzhen has years of experience helping individuals throughout Maryland settle claims for medical-related expenses and other associated costs resulting from injuries suffered due to the negligent or thoughtless actions of another person.
Any person who believes that he or she has been hurt or injured through another person’s intentionally careless or negligent actions may have just cause to file a personal injury claim as a plaintiff in an injury lawsuit. The bodily injury could have been the result of a number of causes, such as birth-related injuries, harm to a child or other minor in one’s family, auto or trucking-related traffic accident, etc. Whatever the situation, we recommend that anyone in such a position should contact our personal injury attorneys to better understand their rights.
In cases of injuries to minors and children, parents can often feel anger and guilt over incidents that led to their child’s injuries. And while parents may feel that they could have been able to prevent an accident, many times this is only wishful thinking as the real cause of their child’s injuries can likely be attributed in whole or large part to negligence or recklessness on the part of another individual or responsible party, such as a toy company, school or daycare facility.
As Baltimore injury attorneys, we remind parents of injured children that they are legally entitled to compensation for that child’s past, present, and future medical expenses, depending, of course, on the seriousness of their child’s injuries, for which medical expenses can be considerable. Retaining experienced legal counsel is all the more important in situations where a child’s injuries require expensive round-the-clock medical care, for which many parents usually cannot easily afford to pay.
In cases where a child has died due to another individual’s negligence or reckless behavior, sometimes the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit may be in order. This kind of legal action is understandable when the parents, through the negligent action of another, have been deprived of their child’s love, affection, and companionship. Furthermore, if the child endured pain and suffering from the time of his or her injury to the moment of death, a lawsuit -- known as a survival action -- can usually be filed with the appropriate court.
In all of these, and many more situations -- such as nursing home injuries and abuse; car, truck and motorcycle accidents; prescription medicine misfills by a pharmacy; burn injuries; and doctor malpractice -- Lebowitz & Mzhen attorneys are ready to assist victims and their families recover medical costs and other expenses related to a particular injury. We are available for a no-obligation consultation by phone (1-800-654-1949), by e-mail, or by appointment at our offices in Owings Mills, Maryland.Driving Directions
