Medical malpractice could turn a moderate injury or illness into something severe. It could reverse your recovery or lead to a worsened prognosis. A negligent party could cause great emotional stress and devastating injuries to you or a family member. It may be difficult to ever trust the medical industry again. If you suspect medical malpractice caused you or a loved one’s recent damages, the Bethesda medical malpractice lawyers at Malloy Law Offices, LLC, can help you through this difficult time.
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.
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.
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.
