Medical Malpractice

When we seek medical care, we are placing ourselves in the care of the “experts.” Medical professionals hold themselves out to the community as skilled and competent in their particular areas of expertise. A patient places him- or herself in the care of the doctor, nurse, or other provider because he expects the health care provider to possess reasonable care, skill, and learning–to be familiar with the applicable medical standards and protocols—and to exercise that skill in a reasonably competent manner.

medical malpractice lawyerBy holding themselves out to be professionals, the health care providers are agreeing to treat the patient carefully, without negligence. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Failure to provide adequate medical care can be a breach of the contractual agreement between the health care provider and patient. This breach can form the basis of a claim of medical malpractice.

In Maryland, the procedures surrounding a medical malpractice claim are detailed and complex. They provide the rules of the process, telling us who can bring a claim, when it must be brought, under what circumstances a claim can be brought, and what are the limits to potential financial recovery.

If you have been hurt by a medical professional or health care provider, don’t hesitate to contact us.

There is no simple, clear way to tell if you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice. If you have any doubts or concerns, it’s important that you speak with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer. We know the laws and statutes and can help you determine if a legal line has been crossed.
