Seeking Compensation for Injuries

An active member of the Prince George’s County legal community, Rick Jaklitsch provides client-centered representation in diverse personal injury cases. Rick Jaklitsch and The Jaklitsch Law Group have a proven record in the representation of clients with back and neck injuries.

Whether back injuries occur in a sudden accident, in a slip and fall, or over time on the job site, many of the injuries are not the fault of the injured party. Negligence may involve an inattentive driver or a company that did not address a hazard on its premises. In such cases, the negligent party should contribute financially to the well-being of the injured person.

The recovery process for back and spine issues often involves lengthy physical therapy. Specialized practitioners may be required, such as chiropractors, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, and massage therapists.

In addition to receiving medical bills, the injured party often must miss work for long periods. All of these factors go into the settlement sought by an accident injury attorney, who can navigate the legal system and win fair and just compensation for the injured person.

Final Selection for the Super Lawyers Listing

How to Get Nominated for Super Lawyers


The owner of the Jaklitsch Law Group, Rick Jaklitsch has extensive experience in personal injury law and was recently recognized for his work. In addition to being awarded as American Lawyer Magazine’s Top Rated Personal Injury Attorney 2019 and National Law Journal’s 2019 Top Personal Injury Attorney, Rick Jaklitsch was also nominated for Maryland’s Super Lawyers' list for 2020.

The list is comprised of top-performing lawyers in the state. The selection is based on 12 indicators, relating to experience, research and publications, community service, settlements and verdicts, and other factors. Because the selection is also based on peer nominations, networking and community service are advantageous to the attorney. By developing a network of attorneys practicing in similar areas, the person seeking nomination improves their chances of being selected for the list simply through heightening their profile. Plus, community service can fill in gaps in areas where a person is not as accomplished.

The program also accepts informal nominations from professionals who can attest to the candidate’s abilities but cannot make a formal nomination-for whatever reason. While informal nominations do not hold the same weight as formal ones, they can serve to highlight the breadth of the candidate’s experience. Getting informal nominations from actively licensed attorneys can improve a candidate's chances of being selected.

Having articles published or being involved in legal research is another highly-valued accomplishment. Legal writings, lectures, and professional reviews are all outlets that can provide selection committees with insight into the candidate’s views and opinions.

Certifications, finally, establish a person’s commitment to the legal field. More importantly, these certifications attest to the person’s desire to keep learning through continuing education and other professional development.
