Recent Lawsuits Against Mercy Medical Center

For some reason, there seems to be a recent rash of anesthesia medical malpractice lawsuits against Mercy.

What Is the Average Settlement Value of a Mercy Hospital Malpractice Case?

The typical settlement value of a medical malpractice lawsuit against Mercy Hospital is around $400,000 to $700,000. This is slightly above the national average for settlements in hospital malpractice cases, which is $425,000. Jurors in Baltimore City are more inclined to give a victim a fair shake in Baltimore compared to most Maryland counties.

The average value of a jury verdict in a Mercy malpractice case is also higher than the national average for verdicts in hospital malpractice cases, which is just over $1 million.

What Are My Chances of Winning a Malpractice Case Against Mercy Hospital?

Over 70% of plaintiffs who file a medical malpractice case against Mercy Hospital end up getting money either in a settlement or a jury verdict. That statistics is based on a non-scientific look at claims filed against it and their outcomes.

The chances of winning or getting a settlement in a hospital malpractice case are statistically higher than cases against doctors or other healthcare professionals. Mercy and other hospital defendants are much more motivated to settle valid medical malpractice cases compared to individual doctors. Hospitals do not get quite the same benefit of jury sympathy.

It is also true that hospitals prefer to avoid the bad press associated with big malpractice verdicts. So the malpractice claims that Mercy does let go to trial usually have facts that are very favorable for the hospital.

Does Mercy Get Sued for Malpractice Frequently?

Yes. Mercy is one of the smaller hospitals in Baltimore. However, Mercy still gets sued in malpractice cases on a regular basis in Maryland. The most common types of medical malpractice claims against Mercy hospital include surgical error, misdiagnosis, and birth injury.

What Impacts the Value of a Mercy Hospital Malpractice Case?
