Maryland Attorney Roger Weinberg

MD Lawyer Weinberg

Roger Weinberg is a skilled and experienced attorney who has pioneered the legal field of representing  Nursing HomeAssisted Living, and Developmental Disability victims and their families who have experienced abuse, neglect and wrongful death.  He is a leader in this field and teaches other lawyers, students and medical personnel about the laws impacting such cases.

 

“Being able to hold somebody accountable for the harm or death of an innocent person in a nursing home or group home is important. No one should die because of someone else’s neglect. My clients want answers, and getting answers enables them to put things to rest.”

In 2001, Mr. Weinberg founded and was the first chairperson of the Maryland Trial Lawyer’s Association’s Nursing Home Litigation Section (now MAJ). He is also active nationally in nursing home and assisted living legal issues, having lectured and written numerous articles for the American Association for Justice and the Maryland Association for Justice to educate other attorneys.

As a leader in his field, Mr. Weinberg obtained a $1 million verdict against an assisted living facility in Hartford County, Maryland, due to the neglect of a patient.  Very few Maryland attorneys have obtained a verdict in long-term care cases.  Mr. Weinberg and his staff understand that there must be legal consequences when a facility fails to live up to the trust placed in it by loving families.

“Whether it’s a fall, septic shock, an infection, neglect or an unexplained death, we work hard to find out what happened and pursue legal action when appropriate.”

Mr. Weinberg, who has been an attorney since 1983, also handles serious personal injuries and wrongful death cases outside the nursing home and assisted living realm. He is a father of five children and grandfather to seven grandkids.
