While most of our cases end in a settlement, we are more than willing to take deserving cases to a jury. In 2018, we have already tried two medical malpractice cases, winning both in verdicts that totaled $2 million. The combined offer to settle those cases before trial was $200,000. Our last medical malpractice victory in Baltimore City was for $10 million. The year before we earned a $5.2 million also in Baltimore.
We take malpractice cases to trial throughout Maryland. In 2018, we brought it over $10 million for our clients in settlements and verdicts in malpractice cases. Our last malpractice trial in P.G. County lead to a $5.5 million verdict. In 2016, our client was awarded $1.5 million in a case in Baltimore County where the insurance company refused to make any settlement offer at all. We followed that up a few months later with a $10 million verdict against the University of Maryland Medical Systems. In 2013, a jury awarded our client $5.5 million in Prince George's County. Make no mistake. The best medical malpractice lawyers in Maryland are the ones that consistently obtain great verdicts for their clients.
These verdicts get attention. Far more quietly, we are delivering even greater results for our clients in confidential settlements in cases few will hear about. Because the vast majority of our medical malpractice cases settle successfully before trial. What you can expect from us - and what our past and present clients will tell you - is that if we take your case, we will fight for you with every weapon we have.
There are not many Maryland malpractice law firms that have achieved the results for their clients that Miller & Zois has. One reason we win so many of these cases: we only take a case to trial if we are 100% convinced the doctor made a mistake. We have no problem taking on a tough case. But our lawyers have to honestly believe in the claim before we will accept the case.
The take-home message for you if you are looking for a malpractice lawyer to fight for you is that Miller & Zois has a real history of success with insurance companies and hospitals throughout Maryland. We will put that experience to work for you.
If we think you can win, we will help you. There is no fee or cost to you if we do not get a recovery for you. Let's talk about your case and let's see together what we can do for you. Call 800-553-8082 or get a free online consultation.Learn More About What You Really Can Expect in These Cases
Our big goal online is to provide real answers to suffering victims and their families. For victims of medical malpractice in Maryland, our frequently asked questions is a good place to start. We explain how we proceed with your case from the moment you call our law firm. We also provide information on the potential value of your malpractice claim.Types of Claims Our Malpractice Lawyers Handle in Maryland
Our Maryland medical malpractice attorneys handle claims in the Baltimore and Washington, DC areas for:
- Birth injuries
- Hospital errors
- Medication errors and mistakes
- Failure to diagnose
- Nursing home abuse
- Nurse or staff malpractice
- Cancer misdiagnosis
- Surgical errors
The question in every medical negligence case is whether the hospital or doctor's failure to exercise the degree of care that a physician 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. We review your case to determine whether our Maryland medical malpractice attorney believes a medical error 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 claim to the next level. We consult with the best medical doctors - experts who specialize in the field of medicine for your particular case - in Maryland and around the country to determine if your case can be successfully pursued.
Health care errors that cause injuries and death are serious problems in Maryland. The statistics are mind-numbing. Our hospitals and doctors need to do better.
Certainly, it is unlikely that your doctors will raise the "Did I commit malpractice?" issue with you. One study found that only thirty percent of malpractice victims were informed that a mistake may have been made. Our lawyers would call that number high.
This culture of silence that extends both to the doctor that made the error and your subsequent doctors who suspect malpractice caused your injuries. Every year people walk away from millions of claims because they just assumed a medical mistake never happened (or they hired the wrong lawyer to investigate their claim). If we agree to investigate your case, we will examine your claim and let you know whether we believe a doctor's mistake hurt you or killed someone you loved.Our Law Firm
