Our attorneys 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. Miller & Zois has won the last five closed medical malpractice cases our law firm has taken to trial. Our last medical negligence verdict in May, 2014 was for $5.2 million in Baltimore City. The last one before that in 2013 was for $5.5 million in Prince George's County.
There are not many law firms that can say that. 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.
Still, the vast majority of our 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
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 claim.Types of Claims Our Malpractice Lawyers Handle in Maryland
Our law firm handles claims in the Baltimore Washington area 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 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 who specialize in the field of medicine for your particular case - in Maryland and around the country to determine if your case should be pursued.
Believe us, health care errors that cause injuries and death are serious problem in Maryland. Our hospitals and our doctors need to do better. 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 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 issue with you. One study found that only thirty percent of malpractice victims were informed that a mistake may have been made. There is a culture of silence both that extends both ot the doctor that make the error and the doctors you later see who suspect malpractice caused your injuries by say nothing. 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 mistate hurt you or killed someone you loved. .Our Law Firm
