Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorney
Injured by a doctor or medical professional?
All health care providers, regardless of what they practice, are required to uphold a certain standard of care when treating patients. When they fail to provide care that meets these standards, fail to provide care that falls in line with what a reasonable medical professional in their practice area would provide, or are otherwise negligent and careless, they can potentially be held liable for the damages they cause patients and their loved ones. At Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C., our Maryland personal injury lawyers has been protecting the rights of injured patients and their families for decades, and we use every ounce of our collective experience, extensive resources, and unyielding commitment to secure the compensation our clients need and deserve.
Filing a Medical Malpractice Claim & Recovering Damages
Medical malpractice is a difficult legal concept because there is always the potential for complications, always a certain margin of error, and always a set of unavoidable risks in the medical profession. Legal professionals and statutory law, however, do recognized this fact - no medical professional is required or expected to successfully treat every patient or to successfully cure every disease, ailment, and injury that they see. While advancements in science and medical technology have expanded our knowledge and our ability to help mankind live longer, healthier, and happier lives, they still do not enable us to treat every disorder and disease and they certainly do not eliminate medical professionals from all liability.
Health care providers, unfortunately, will always be capable of making mistakes, acting carelessly, and treating patients negligently. Fortunately for patients who receive this type of inadequate care, the American legal system is here to provide the avenues needed to obtain justice and recover damages. By filing a medical malpractice claim with the assistance of our firm's legal team, victims and their loved ones will have the opportunity to clearly present all supporting evidence that proves a medical professional acted negligently or failed to uphold their duty to provide reasonable care. When compiled and presented effectively, medical malpractice claims will allow victims and families to recover their damages in the form of monetary compensation. Some of the most common medical malpractice claims include:
- Birth injuries to either mothers or newborns
- Surgical errors, plastic surgery errors, and anesthesia errors
- Diagnostic errors, including failure to diagnose and misdiagnoses
- Medical malpractice causing wrongful death
- Emergency room errors
- Medications and prescription errors
