Miller & Zois is a law firm that limits its practice exclusively to serious personal injury cases. The majority of our cases are in Maryland in the Baltimore-Washington area, but we are involved in product liability cases around the country.
Our law practice is solely devoted to fighting for just compensation for individuals, people like you as opposed to insurance companies. Our law practice is not only limited to personal injury but to specific types of injury claims, including motor vehicle accident injuries (car, truck, and motorcycle), medical malpractice, premises liability, and pharmaceutical drug or medical device injuries.Auto Accidents
Over 70% of our law practice at Miller & Zois involves representing clients who have been injured as result of an auto accident in Maryland. The attorneys at Miller & Zois have taken to trial hundreds of personal injury auto accident cases in Maryland. Regrettably, we have seen virtually every type of car accident injury: spinal cord, fractures, herniated discs, surgery, burns, paralysis, wrongful death, scarring, permanent injury, disability, and disfigurement.
The individual who causes injuries to innocent victims in a car accident is usually represented by insurance company lawyers who work hard to prevent the injured victim from receiving fair compensation for the injuries they have suffered. The lawyers at Miller & Zois formerly worked for these types of insurance companies and know the tricks that they will use to prevent you from recovering. Lawyers Weekly USA, the nation's only weekly legal periodical, perhaps best characterized the benefits of our training when they wrote that as former insurance defense lawyers, Miller & Zois "knows the other side's playbook." (For this and other testimonials, select here.) Accordingly, the lawyers at Miller & Zois know the tricks that insurance companies such as GEICO, Allstate, State Farm, Progressive, MAIF, and Nationwide will throw at us. More importantly, our attorneys know how to overcome the roadblocks these insurance companies throw up to give our clients the best chance of receiving the maximum possible recovery in their personal injury case.Truck Accidents
The lawyers at Miller & Zois also handle a large number of large truck and tractor trailer personal injury cases. Contrary to what many lawyers think, truck accident claims are not simply larger passenger car claims. We have handled scores of serious injury and wrongful death truck accident claims and they are as alike as the Harlem Globetrotters and the Los Angeles Lakers. We have the experience and reputation to stand up to these companies to get fair compensation for our clients who have been injured in a truck accident.Motorcycle Accidents
The attorneys at Miller & Zois also handle personal injury cases involving motorcycles. Some studies have shown that over 80% of multi-vehicle accidents involving motorcycles are not the fault of the motorcyclist. Juries don't see it that way - they look to blame the motorcyclist first because a motorcyclist reminds them of the guy that shot past them at 1,000 miles an hour on Route 95.
Not only are motorcycle cases more difficult to try to juries, but the stakes are generally higher: motorcycle accident victims are 21 times more likely to die than personal injury victims in a passenger car or truck.
The take home message is clear: if you have a motorcycle accident case, you need a lawyer who is going to put you in the best position not only to win but to maximize your recovery. Our motorcycle accident lawyers have the experience in these cases to stand up to the insurance companies and fight for fair compensation for the victims of motorcycle accidents.Medical Malpractice
We handle cases involving
- anesthesiology errors,
- birth injuries,
- cancer and other misdiagnosis cases,
- emergency room negligence,
- hospital negligence,
- misread X-rays or other diagnostic testing,
- incorrect medical prescriptions, surgical errors
The thing to remember in medical malpractice cases is that you better be ready to put your chin strap on and fight. Easy settlements come along once in a blue moon. You need to be ready to fight the case tooth and nail from gathering the facts and the experts all the way through post-trial appeals. Our lawyers do just that.Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a subset of the above listed categories. In Maryland, by statute, the family members and the estate of the deceased who have been killed as the result of the negligence of another can bring a wrongful death claim and something called a survival action. A wrongful death lawsuit may be the result of a vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or other catastrophic event including boating swimming pool drowning deaths. We have handled many wrongful death cases in Maryland and all over the country and have been able to receive fair compensation for our clients who have lost a family member due to the negligence of another.Drug or Medical Device Injuries

- Premises liability claims
- Dog bite injuries
- Burn injuries
- Forklift accidents
