Our Bowie Urgent Care Medical Malpractice Attorneys Can Assess Your Losses
When urgent care medical professionals fail to provide a standard of care, existing conditions may worsen, or patients may suffer new ailments. These injuries and their associated losses represent a variety of economic and non-economic damages. Our job as your legal representative is to assess these losses and fight for fair compensation. We can gather a variety of evidence, such as your medical records and testimony from other medical professionals, to support your case.
We can seek the following damages as they apply to your case.
Past Medical Expenses and Future Health Care Costs
Along with treating your new injuries, you will have also incurred medical expenses from the original injury or ailment that brought you into the urgent care facility. Our job is to seek compensation for both your current and future medical expenses related to your negligent care. These damages can include hospital stays, surgeries, medications, specialists, medical devices, and other medical expenses.
Pain and Suffering
The physical pain and emotional turmoil from your injuries may also warrant financial recovery. Our Bowie urgent care medical malpractice team can assign a monetary value to this non-economic loss.
Lost Income and Reduced Earning Capacity
Injuries due to medical negligence can leave you out of work for some time, costing your family essential income. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may not be able to return to work or perform the same duties as you did before your injury. Our legal team can gather your wage statements and medical records to make a case for lost income and reduced earning capacity.
Other losses may apply to your case, and our Bowie personal injury lawyers will leave no stone unturned when accounting for them.

Examples of Medical Negligence in Urgent Care Facilities
Urgent care facilities can be busy offices that treat a variety of injuries and ailments. Many times, it’s the responsibility of urgent care medical professionals to refer patients with more severe injuries to the hospital. If they can treat their injuries, they have to follow the same standard of care that any other doctor should. When proving medical malpractice in an urgent care case, our lawyers will work to show that another reasonable doctor would not have treated your injuries in the same way.
Specifically, we will work to show and establish a doctor-patient relationship, a breach of the required standard of care, and the connection between that breach and your subsequent injuries. Consider the following examples of medical malpractice in urgent care facilities below:
- Failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis
- Failure to provide discharge instructions
- Failure to follow up
- Medication errors, such as inappropriate dosages
- Failure to properly sterilize medical tools and prevent infections
- Failure to consider the patient’s medical history
Any of the listed medical errors can result in the worsening of a medical condition. You deserve the standard of care when seeing any type of doctor at any medical facility, and you shouldn’t have to cover the bill for an injury caused by medical malpractice. Our Bowie urgent care medical malpractice attorneys will work to hold a medical professional or the urgent care itself accountable for your losses.

We Can Recommend Highly Qualified Medical Experts to Help With Your Recovery After Urgent Care Medical Malpractice
Another way MD Accident Law helps its clients is by connecting them with a team of medical professionals who can help with both their physical recovery and their cases. Our personal injury attorneys understand that you do not want more medical bills; however, it’s important that you seek proper treatments to address both your new injury and the original one that brought you into an urgent care facility. You deserve to reach your maximum medical recovery and make a case for fair compensation.
Also, consider that you do not want an insurance company to undervalue your medical malpractice claim, arguing that you delayed necessary medical treatments.
Our Bowie Urgent Care Medical Malpractice Team Can Help You Meet Legal Deadlines
According to Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-109, You have a deadline to file a medical malpractice lawsuit. We may not need to file a lawsuit to seek compensation in your case, but you need to be aware of the deadline if we do. Generally, you have five years from the date of injury to file your lawsuit. It can take time to discover medical negligence occurred, so the deadline to file a medical malpractice lawsuit from the date you reasonably discovered it is three years.
One of the ways our law firm helps victims of medical negligence is by taking their cases on a contingency fee basis. This agreement means that we can begin working on your case immediately since we do not charge any upfront fees for our legal services. We only get paid from your potential settlement or court award at the end of your case. This leaves us time to investigate your injury, gather evidence of negligence, and file the appropriate paperwork.
