Medical Malpractice

Maryland Medical Malpractice Lawyer

When you go to a doctor or hospital for a procedure, even something routine, the last thing you expect is for medical malpractice to occur. Yet that is what can happen, often with devastating effects. If you or a loved one were injured through the negligence of a doctor, registered nurse, physician’s assistant, or other healthcare professional, contact an experienced Maryland medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible after the discovery of the malpractice. They will work with you to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Statistics

Because it is not always detectable and oftentimes underreported, the total number for medical malpractice cases in the United States varies. The Institute of Medicine puts the number from anywhere between 44,000 to 98,000 deaths and over one million injuries as attributable to medical malpractice, but the Journal of the American Medical Association says that number is much higher: up to 248,000 deaths are caused by direct medical malpractice each year. These numbers are alarmingly high, and for good reason. Patients are entrusting their lives to medical professionals and healthcare facilities, and have faith that these places will give top-quality medical care. When that fails to happen, it is jarring, and completely shakes the victim’s faith in the healthcare system. These errors can lead to unnecessary testing, multiple doctor’s office visits, and lasting injuries. Having a qualified Maryland medical malpractice attorney will go a long way in helping a medical malpractice victim receive the deserved compensation.

Statute of Limitations

In Maryland, all medical malpractice claims must be filed within five years of the date the malpractice occurred, or within three years from the time the injury was found, whichever date comes earlier. This is why it is incredibly important to retain the services of a medical malpractice attorney as soon as the injury comes to light, as someone can easily be barred from receiving compensation due to missing the deadline.
