Where To File GBMC Medical Malpractice LawsuitsGBMC

GBMC is located in Baltimore County.  This county is typically considered to be conservative in personal injury cases.  Still, our lawyers believe the right cases can be successful anywhere, and we have had a lot of success in both settling cases and at trial in Baltimore County.

Some attorneys try to force lawsuits against this hospital into Baltimore City Circuit Court. One argument that has been used lately in cardiac cases is that GBMC and Johns Hopkins entered into a 2007 agreement whereby the Hopkins physicians manage the hospital's cardiac unit. Many of these types of rulings are discretionary, to some degree, with the ruling judge.

While there is an argument that has GBMC “has carried on a regular business in Baltimore City," it still may be a challenge to get malpractice claims transferred to Baltimore City if the negligence occurred at GBMC and the plaintiff is not a City resident.

Client Reviews

  • They quite literally worked as hard as if not harder than the doctors to save our lives.
  • Ron helped me find a clear path that ended with my foot healing and a settlement that was much more than I hope for.
  • Hopefully I won't need it again but if I do, I have definitely found my lawyer for life and I would definitely recommend this office to anyone!
  • The last case I referred to them settled for $1.2 million.
  • I am so grateful that I was lucky to pick Miller & Zois.
  • The entire team from the intake Samantha to the lawyer himself (Ron Miller) has been really approachable.
  • The case settled and I got a lot more money than I expected. Ron even fought to reduce how much I owed in medical bills so I could get an even larger settlement.
  • Miller and Zois is the best firm in the state of Maryland, and without their support, understanding, and just being there when I needed encouragement, I truly do not know how I would have succeeded without them.
