Overview of Malpractice Claims
The question in every medical negligence case in Maryland is whether the hospital or doctor's failure to exercise the degree of care that a doctor or surgeon of the same medical specialty would use under similar circumstances and, if so, whether it caused injury to the patient. These are two separate questions. Our medical malpractice lawyers review your case to determine whether our attorneys believe medical malpractice may have been the cause of the patient's injuries or death. If we believe medical malpractice may have been the cause, our law firm takes the investigation of your malpractice claim to the next level. We then consult with medical doctors - experts in the field of medicine for your particular case - in Maryland and around the country to determine if your malpractice case should be pursued further.

Believe us, medical errors that cause injuries and death are serious problem in Maryland. We join the rest of the country in this regard. Thanks to the federal government's Institute of Medicine study "To Err is Human," we know what lawyers handling these lawsuits have known for many decades: (1) the shocking extent of medical malpractice, almost 100,000 malpractice deaths per year in this country, and, (2) the great majority of medical mistakes made by doctors are never discovered by the injury victims (meaning the malpractice victims and/or their families are not compensated). In light of this report, which has a stamp of authenticity because it is such a comprehensive government report, doctors and hospitals can no longer claim that tragic medical errors are somehow a rare occurrence and that these claims are mostly manufactured by medical malpractice lawyers seeking money for clients. It is just wrong and it is placing the blame in the wrong direction. Our hospitals and our doctors need to do better in Maryland.
That said, most health care providers provide excellent care to their patients - particularly in the Baltimore area which has some of the best hospitals in the country. Moreover, a bad medical outcome does not mean there is negligence that would lead to a medical malpractice case. It is difficult for injury victims to know whether their injuries are the result of medical negligence or whether their injuries are just a tragic result that could not have been avoided by proper medical care. Our medical malpractice lawyers help clarify this question of whether medical negligence may have occurred in your case.
