Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers
We have earned a reputation for not only offering superior legal representation, but doing so while offering client/customer service at a level unparalleled by other law firms. Perhaps this is why the firm itself received a “Tier One” ranking as one of the Best Law Firms in America as reported in “US News and World Reports” and two of its partners have been recognized by “Best Lawyers in America,” “Best Lawyers in Maryland,” and by Maryland’s “Superlawyers.”
When one is injured as a result of the negligence of others, a firm of well trained, seasoned, compassionate, and easily accessible attorneys and staff is not just preferred – it is needed and necessary! Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates fits that description.
The concept of damages regarding personal injury matters in the system of American jurisprudence is quite interesting. When one is hurt by the negligence of others, our laws demand that the injured party must be “made whole” by the negligent party. Suffering from permanent or temporary injuries, lost wages, out of pocket expenses, and medical bills are all factors in making the injured, whole again. Although, it is easy to put a quantitative value on lost wages, out of pocket expenses and medical bills, it is not so easy to figure out what kind of compensation one should receive for losing a bit of oneself, temporarily or permanently, as a result of another’s negligence. Valuing pain and suffering, loss of quality time with your loved ones, and the inability to to tasks or involve oneself in recreational activities is something that the attorneys at Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates have a knack for properly addressing. That is why an injured party would benefit from the wise counsel of these experienced and recognized attorneys.
Additionally, Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates has forged relationships based on mutual respect with many of the area’s doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, to ensure that clients will not be sent to collections and suffer a downgrade in their credit score while the lawyers either negotiate a settlement, or seek a trial to protect their interests. However, unlike many of the area’s personal injury lawyers who make their money by failing to provide superior client service because they have a volume practice — commonly referred as a “PI mill” — Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates are not beholden to the doctors, as are these lawyers. Over 80 percent of our clients are referred to us by other satisfied clients, and not by the doctors who seek to have a friendly lawyer protect their bill.
For all personal injury matters, hiring us is easy, as we do not take a fee unless we recover a monetary settlement or verdict for our clients.
We offer free initial consultations for personal injury and our other areas of practice. We are a different kind of law firm; one that puts the interests of our clients paramount to any other competing interest and gives superior client/customer service during our representation. We care about our clients, our community, and with improving the standing of both by going above and beyond what is expected and provided by other firms. Let Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates have the opportunity to serve as either your lawyer, or as the lawyer to one who may need our services. Call us NOW for a free personal injury consultation and remember there is no fee if no recovery!
Appointments can be set in either our Columbia (Howard County), Gaithersburg (Montgomery County), or Riverdale (Prince George’s County) locations.
