MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIMS
Medical Malpractice in Maryland
Luckily, Maryland has been recognized as having one of the best health and medical systems in the country. Sadly, medical errors continue to be reported as a leading cause of death or serious permanent injury. Medical mistakes occur not only in hospitals, but in out-patient clinics, pharmacies, nursing homes, and home care. Pharmacy and medication errors alone contribute to more than 7,000 deaths annually.
A doctor, dentist, hospital, pharmacy, or other health care provider can be held liable in Maryland for failing to order tests, missing a diagnosis, not following standards of care, delaying treatment, or other unreasonable conduct which causes injury to a patient.
Potential medical malpractice cases in Maryland are complex and difficult to analyze, and require the combined skills and experience of medical and legal experts.
