Do You Have A Medical Malpractice Case?

A medical procedure has gone wrong, and now you or a loved one have been left with injuries due to the actions of the medical professional you trusted. If you're wondering whether you have valid grounds for filing a lawsuit, our medical malpractice lawyers in Maryland can help.

How do You Know if You Have a Case for Medical Malpractice?

Seeking legal representation for a medical negligence or malpractice case is a wise choice to take, given the fact that medical error cases are some of the most complex civil cases possible. This same complexity can make it very difficult to determine if a case should be pursued or not.

For this reason, if you have suffered any kind of injury during a medical exam or surgical procedure, you should consult the incident with an attorney. In sharing the circumstances of your injury with a legal professional, they will be able to determine if any negligence occurred and if you have a medical malpractice case.

Moreover, having analyzed your case, the lawyer will also be able to suggest legal avenues for compensation. The damages caused by medical negligence are often severe, long-lasting, and even deadly. It's only normal for victims to seek compensation for the damages they suffered. A medical negligence lawsuit may truly be the only way for them to be "made whole" once more.

Our law firm makes their legal experience available to all members of the community via free legal consultations. We're stern believers in that everyone should have access to the justice system, as well as to experienced representation. Victims without the financial means to hire an attorney can have their day in court, and with the contingency fee structure we work with, any legal fees are only paid if the lawsuit is successful, also known as "No win, no fee."

Additional Medical Malpractice Case FAQs

Below, we answer some of the most common questions that our legal team encounters regarding medical negligence cases.

What Kind of Case is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice, often shortened to "med mal", is the term used to describe cases in which a doctor causes their patient harm while diagnosing or treating a medical condition.

The legal foundation for these cases is that of negligence. This is to say, the doctor has to be found to have acted negligently in their capacity as a medical professional. If the negligence is directly linked to the injuries that resulted, then a substantial compensation may be owed to the victim.

Is a Medical Malpractice Case Difficult to Win?

Medical malpractice cases often result in multi-million dollar settlements or awards. Whoever, the significant compensation that stands to be won by victims (and paid by defendants) also makes these types of cases some of the most difficult to win.

Settlement negotiations between the two parties may go on for months. If an agreement can't be reached, the case can go to court and spend months if not years before any resolution is given. Both sides are likely to employ powerful legal teams to defend their interests. Numerous medical expert witnesses may be brought in to testify. The doctor, as well as the victim, may be deposed and even called to testify in front of a court.

The legal battle in medical negligence cases can be an arduous one. But, when it comes to securing financial compensation for victims whose lives have been forever changed (for the worse,) we think any resource and time devoted to the cause is absolutely worth it.
