  • "Everything was always 100% professional."
    I highly recommend Potter Burnett Law! Suzanne Burnett helped me get compensation from an insurance company after I was hit by a Baltimore City driver while riding my bike. After a consultation and a bit of legwork getting materials over to Suzanne, I just sat back and let her do her thing. Less than eight months later, I received my settlement from the insurance company which fully covered my medical expenses and then some! Every step of the way, she and her team were in just as much communication as necessary to keep me apprised of the ongoing situation. Everything was always 100% professional.

Our Maryland trial lawyers have handled a wide range of personal injury-related cases and recovered millions for clients in damages. Filing a claim after an accident may be your best chance of obtaining the compensation you need to cover your medical bills and property damage, as well as make up for lost income.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 6 million car accidents occur every year in the United States. Most motor vehicle accidents are caused by human error, meaning it’s possible you can hold the at-fault driver responsible for negligence. Our team has years of experience handling cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle crashes.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals have a responsibility to keep their patients safe and improve their medical conditions—not make them worse. Unfortunately, doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are all human and prone to mistakes. If you’ve been wrongfully harmed by your physician, you deserve justice.

Common types of medical malpractice claims that we handle include:

Premises Liability

Though some accidents, like slip and falls, are random, sometimes fault can be traced back to the negligence of a property owner. We handle premises liability claims on behalf of individuals who have been injured due to the carelessness of building owners after falls, being hit by falling debris, or being exposed to asbestos.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Older adults in nursing homes are some of the most vulnerable people in the world, and unfortunately, there are people who take advantage of this. It’s estimated that hundreds of thousands of older adults in nursing home facilities are abused every year, from being neglected by nursing home staff to suffering from emotional or physical abuse. Some examples of nursing home abuse include bedsores acquired from being left in bed, hygiene issues, malnutrition and dehydration, and physical injuries like broken bones.
