Common Types of Medical Malpractice in Bethesda
Medical malpractice means any negligent behavior, misconduct or wrongful act on the part of a health care professional that causes patient harm. In our years of experience, we have handled many of these types of lawsuits. We know how easy it can be for a doctor, nurse or surgeon to make critical mistakes. In these situations, we protect the best interests of injured patients and their families.
- Anesthesia overdoses/anesthesia awareness
- Birth injuries and preventable birth defects
- Emergency room malpractice
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Intubation errors and brain damage
- Negligent or insufficient patient care
- Prescription and medication mistakes
- Surgical and operating room errors
These cases are “never events,” meaning in an ordinary, prudent environment they should never happen. Negligence, carelessness, irresponsibility, and incompetence contribute to most medical malpractice cases in Maryland. If a practitioner or medical facility caused your injuries, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
What To Do Next?
Should you suspect this at a hospital, start recording your experience. Document details such as the names of your physician and nurses, the name of the health care center, dates of treatments and what you believe happened. Switch doctors to seek a second opinion on your medical condition. Then, contact Malloy Law Offices, LLC, for a free consultation.
- Statute of limitations. You or your lawyer must bring your lawsuit within five years of the date the defendant committed the malpractice or within three years of discovering your injury (whichever is first).
- Certificate of a qualified expert. A medical expert must swear under oath that he or she has reviewed your case and believes you have a valid claim.
- The burden of proof. As a plaintiff, you or your lawyer will have to prove the defendant caused your injuries in a way that another medical professional would not have in the same circumstances.
When you contact our firm for assistance, our attorneys will visit you at home or in the hospital if you cannot make it to our office. We will review your story, investigate the health care center and let you know if your claim has merit. If we accept your case, we will take care of filing paperwork and other legal processes on your behalf.
