Miller & Zois stands apart from many malpractice law firms because we have the experience, resources and skills to win these cases -- and the track record to prove it.
Our Maryland medical malpractice lawyers represent victims of medical negligence and their families for claims brought against their doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes.
While most of our cases end in a settlement, we are more than willing to take deserving cases to a jury. Our last medical negligence verdict in 2014, was for $5.2 million in Baltimore City. In 2013, a jury awarded our client $5.5 million in Prince George's County. Since these verdict, we have settled cases netting millions of dollars to our clients. We have an undeniable history of success with insurance companies and hospitals throughout Maryland.
There are not many Maryland malpractice law firms that sport the results that Miller & Zois has. One reason why 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 truly believe in he case or we will not take it.
Still, the vast majority of our medical malpractice cases settle successfully before trial. What you can expect from us - and what our former 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 answer 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 or drug errors and mistakes
- Failure to diagnose
- Nursing home abuse
- Nurse 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 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. 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.
Believe us, 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, a bad medical outcome does not mean there is negligence that would lead to a viable lawsuit. It is difficult 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 million claims because they just assumed what seems like an error 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 investigate your case and let you know whether we believe a doctor's mistake hurt you or killed someone you loved.Our Law Firm
