Medical Malpractice Lawsuit FAQs

What Is Considered Medical Malpractice?

To understand medical malpractice and medical negligence, it’s important to first establish the duty that exists between a health professional and their patient.

When we visit a health professional such as a primary care doctor, we put our trust in the hands of a person whom we expect to be a highly-educated specialist. Whatever advice they provide we follow “to the T” with the belief that it will help us regain our health and return to normal life.

However, when a medical professional (for whatever reason) does not provide the patient with the accepted standard of care and this negligence in duty causes the patient any type of injury or worsening of an existing condition, then they are acting negligently. In effect, this doctor is considered to be practicing medicine incorrectly (“medical malpractice“) and can be held liable for damages that resulted from their action or inaction, depending on the situation.

Proving medical negligence can be difficult to achieve not only because of the complex nature of most cases but also because doctors usually have powerful insurance companies and the best lawyers representing them. To better understand what is necessary for a medical malpractice lawsuit to be successful, one can look at the “4 D’s of Medical Malpractice.”

The “4 D’s” Of Medical Negligence

The four D’s of medical negligence represent the four individual elements that medical negligence lawyers must prove to win a lawsuit in court. They are as follows:

  1. Duty – The first D, Duty, refers to the fact that a duty or established patient-doctor agreement must exist. This duty states that the doctor must follow standardized procedures in treating the patient.
  2. Deviation – When a doctor Deviates from standardized medical procedures, they are foregoing the normal treatment methods for the medical condition. The reasoning for deviation could be justified; making this D one of the most difficult components of a medical negligence lawsuit.
  3. Direct Causation – Direct Causation speaks to the fact that for a medical malpractice claim to be successful, it must be proven that the deviation from duty directly resulted in the damages suffered by the victim.
  4. Damages – Damages are a cornerstone not only of medical malpractice lawsuits but of any type of injury claim. If no damages of any kind occurred, then the legal claim has no foundation on which to survive.

If, after reading over the “4 D’s of medical malpractice” you are not sure whether you have a case, don’t worry. The best medical malpractice lawyers can spend months arguing over just one of the four D’s. In many cases, expert witnesses (practicing doctors, in this case) will have to be brought in to opine on the actions taken by the defendant doctor.

Even if you don’t believe you have grounds for a valid malpractice lawsuit, we still suggest contacting our team and making sure that no options for compensation exist. You owe it to yourself and any family members who may have also been affected by a negligent doctor.

Types Of Medical Malpractice

Our experienced medical negligence lawyers are intimately familiar with the countless types of medical malpractice. While the victims and their individual injuries different one from the others, there is a common thread among all: becoming a victim of medical malpractice was a harrowing experience that permanently changed their lives.

Below, we list some of the types of medical malpractice injuries that occur and which, in many cases, can’t be medically corrected:

  • Failure to diagnose medical conditions
  • Failure to diagnose cancer/tumors
  • Errors administering anesthesia
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Medication/prescription mistakes

The previous list is composed mainly of cases that are generally encountered in hospitals. However, medical malpractice and negligence are also likely to manifest in other settings, including:

  • Nursing homes & assisted-living facilities
  • Cosmetic surgery clinics
  • Medical “Medi” spas
  • Dentist offices

If you believe you may have been a victim of medical malpractice but did not see your ailment referenced on this page, contact our team today and ease your doubts. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to know the truth.

How Much Does A Malpractice Lawyer Cost

The medical malpractice attorneys at Maryland Injury Guys work strictly on a contingency fee basis. Contingency fee structures are also known as “No Win, No Fee” legal representation.

It’s as simple as it sounds. If our experienced medical negligence lawyers are not able to secure compensation on behalf of the victims we represent, then no legal fees are owed. Regardless of the resources devoted to the case by the law firm, the client will not be liable for any charges if they themselves are not compensated.

As an additional effort in hopes of bringing justice to any victim of medical malpractice in Maryland, our attorneys also offer their insight to potential victims through free case reviews. A phone call is all that stands between patients wronged by the medical professionals they trusted and the fight for justice.
