A Medical Malpractice Case Presents Certain Challenges
Medical malpractice claims present several challenges. Trust that our medical error attorney in Glen Burnie is ready to stand up to these challenges, working to secure fair compensation.
We understand how difficult it can be to go through something like this. You could be unable to work or enjoy your life as much as you did before the doctor’s error. We do not let malpractice insurance companies get away with bad faith practices. We fight hard for your best possible settlement.
You Must Have New or Worsened Injuries or Illnesses
Our Glen Burnie medical malpractice lawyers can determine how your medical condition worsened after seeing the doctor. If the medical professional’s error led to new health problems for you, this also warrants a medical malpractice case.
A worsening health condition or new injury can cause a variety of losses, such as additional medical care costs, lost wages from an inability to work, and pain and suffering.
We can seek both your current and future losses when filing a claim or lawsuit. The last thing we want is for you to face further losses due to a negligent medical professional.
Potentially Liable Parties in a Glen Burnie Medical Malpractice Case
Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 3-2A-01 lays out the potential parties in a medical malpractice claim. You can seek a judgment against individual medical professionals, such as general practice doctors, specialists, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, or psychologists, among others.
Our medical malpractice attorneys may determine that a medical facility, such as a hospital, an out-patient facility, an assisted living program, a hospice care program, or a similar facility, is also liable for your injuries.
We can pursue compensation from any party that caused or contributed to your losses.
Medical Errors Can Occur in a Variety of Ways
A medical professional or facility that makes any of the following errors could be subject to a malpractice claim or lawsuit:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, leading to delayed treatment
- Error in administering prescription drugs, including the type and dosage of the prescription
- Error in administering anesthesia before surgery
- Error in performing surgery, including performing the wrong surgery or leaving instruments inside the body
- Mistakes during childbirth, leading to health concerns for the mother or baby
We can work to show how the doctor failed to follow the standard of care when treating your particular health problem. If the doctor did not provide the type of care that the average doctor would have, a medical malpractice case would be appropriate.
The Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Lawsuits in Maryland
Md. Cts. & Jud. Proc. Code § 5-109 gives the victims of medical malpractice a certain length of time to begin the claim process.
- Up to five years from the time that the medical professional’s error led to additional injuries or illnesses for you
- Up to three years from the discovery of the additional health problems you suffered because of the error of the medical professional
Trust that our personal injury attorneys in Glen Burnie have the specific knowledge required to handle all aspects of your lawsuit. As long as you contact us early enough, you can rest assured that we will not allow your deadline to expire because of a technical error that we can prevent.
