As a victim of medical negligence, there is no cost for receiving medical treatment and legal representation. Medical Negligence cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means that the Insurance company that pays for the injuries, damages and losses in the case, will pay for the medical treatment, related expenses and attorney’s fees, and you will be compensated and made whole for the negligence of the medical care provider who caused the injuries.

In Maryland, when a doctor or other health care provider agrees to diagnose or treat a patient, he or she has assumed a duty of care toward that patient. The definition of “Medical Malpractice,” also known as “Medical Negligence,” is negligence committed by a health care provider whose performance of duties deviates from the standard of care of those with similar training and experience, which results in medical injury to a patient.
“Medical injury” means injury or death resulting from rendering health care or failing to render health care. Therefore, Medical Negligence in Maryland occurs when there is:
1. a negligent act by a Doctor or other health care provider which results in injury to the patient;
2. an omission or failure to act by a doctor or other health care provider resulting in injury to the patient.
Medical Negligence is not limited to the actions of Doctors, such as Neurologists, Oncologists, Cardiologists, Internists, Obstetricians, Gynecologists, and Surgeons. Maryland law covers the actions of “health care providers,” which also includes nurses, dentists, dental staff, hospitals, nursing homes and nursing home staff, medical day care centers, hospice care programs, assisted living programs, optometrists, osteopaths, ambulatory care facilities, chiropractors, podiatrists, psychologists, licensed certified social workers, clinical social workers, and physical therapists.
Medical Negligence cases include claims against the health care providers and health care institutions for medical negligence which occurred due to:
- The Failure to Diagnose;
- Child Birth Injuries (such as Cerebral Palsy, Brachial Palsy, and Facial Paralysis);
- Surgical Errors;
- Anesthesia Malpractice,;
- Improper Medical Treatment;
- Contaminated Blood; and
- Injury from Prescription Drugs, such as drug overdoses, failure to recognize drug allergies or improper use or combination of drugs.
Cases also arise against hospitals and other health care institutions for improper care, such as nursing care neglect or abuse, problems with medications, as well as against the Local, State or Federal agencies that operate the hospitals and medical facilities.
