While most of our cases end in a settlement, we are more than willing to take deserving cases to a jury. We settled over $10 million in malpractice claims in 2015. Our last medical malpractice victory in Baltimore City was for $5.2 million. 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 University of Maryland Medical Systems. In 2013, a jury awarded our client $5.5 million in Prince George's County.
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.
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 or we will accept the case.
Still, 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 are going to fight for you with every weapon we have.
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 for people who are suffering. For victims of medical malpractice in Maryland, our frequently asked questions is a good place to start. We also explain just how we proceed with handling your case from the moment you call our law firm and 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
- Dental malpractice
- 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. Our hospitals and doctors need to do better.
With that said, most health care providers provide excellent care to their patients - particularly in the Baltimore area with Johns Hopkins and UMMS - which has some of the best hospitals in the country.
Moreover, an adverse medical outcome does not mean there is negligence that would lead to a viable lawsuit. It is hard for injury victims to know whether their injuries are the result of negligence or whether their injuries are just a tragic result that could not have been avoided by proper medical care.
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.
There is a culture of silence; which extends both to the doctor that made the error and the doctors who suspect malpractice caused your injuries. Every year people walk away from millions of claims because they just assumed what seems like a mistake as not an error (or they hired the wrong lawyer to investigate their claim). If we agree to go further in your case after our initial call, we will examine your case and let you know whether we believe a doctor's mistake hurt you or killed someone you loved.Our Law Firm
