Damages Hold the Negligent Doctor or Care Facility Responsible
When we help a client receive compensation for their expenses and losses, we work to understand the impacts the medical negligence and resulting injuries had on their life. We know harm is more than just physical injuries in these cases. In fact, we also recover money damages for financial and emotional losses.
Commonly recoverable damages include:
- Current and future medical care necessitated by the malpractice
- Lost income for the time you missed at your job
- Diminished earning capacity
- Related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Other non-economic losses
At the Law Offices of Adam M. Smallow, we also pursue damages for our clients in wrongful death cases based on medical malpractice. If your family member died, our compassionate team is here for you. We will discuss your rights with you today at no cost. Wrongful death damages include:
- Non-economic losses of survivors

Proving Injuries Occurred Due to Medical Malpractice in Aberdeen
An Aberdeen personal injury lawyer from our team can assess whether we believe you were a victim of medical malpractice during a free consultation today. Malpractice can occur in many ways, including:
- Missing a diagnosis or a misdiagnosis
- Providing the wrong treatment or not treating a diagnosed condition
- Surgical errors
- Failure to remove all items inside after surgery
- Medication and drug errors
- Birth injuries
Per Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-2C-01, Maryland law requires us to identify and work with a qualified medical expert to prove malpractice occurred. In general, any time a doctor or another trained care provider fails to provide an acceptable standard of care, it is medical negligence.
Our expert will review the relevant medical records, witness statements, and other evidence and offer an opinion on:
- The expected care the doctor should have provided
- Whether you received an acceptable standard of care
- The outcome of the care you received or did not receive
- Your prognosis and necessary treatment and care
Our team knows how Maryland medical malpractice law works. We can build strong support for your claim and navigate the claims process on your behalf. This could allow us to file an insurance claim and hold the liable parties accountable for their negligent actions.
What are the Deadlines for Suing the Doctor or Facility Responsible?
There are deadlines in place that could affect your ability to sue the doctor, hospital, or other party liable for your medical malpractice injuries. While there are exceptions, these deadlines generally include:
- Up to five years for medical malpractice injuries under Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-109
- Up to three years for the wrongful death of a family member under Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-904
In most cases, we never need to file a lawsuit or take the case to trial. Instead, we file a claim against the liable medical care providers and present a strong case to their insurer. This often leads to a negotiated settlement that fairly compensates our client and allows us to avoid an appearance in Harford County civil court.
