Medical malpractice claims arise when a patient is harmed while under the care of a medical provider, due to the fact that the medical provider failed to exercise the appropriate level of care. The duty of care that may be applicable in a certain situation consists of the medical professional’s obligation to act as another medical professional in the same specialty would act in the same or similar circumstances, treating a similarly situated patient. If a medical professional’s deviation from the duty of care caused your injuries, you likely will be able to obtain damages. Expert testimony plays a key role in determining liability in these claims. To prevail against a physician for medical malpractice, a patient must establish that:
Some of the most tragic incidents of medical malpractice involve newborns and their mothers. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately seven out of every 100 births involve some kind of birth defect or trauma. If you believe your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical malpractice, you may be able to file a claim against the negligent medical provider. Malpractice often occurs during the labor and delivery process, potentially resulting in devastating birth injuries and long-term consequences for a child. Some of the most serious birth injuries result from a lack of oxygen to the fetus during delivery, or bleeding within the skull or brain. As a result, a baby may suffer serious, life-changing conditions like cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, intellectual disabilities, developmental delays, or other debilitating conditions. A victim of medical malpractice or the family of a child who has suffered a birth injury may be entitled to compensation. A plaintiff may seek damages for medical expenses, the costs of future treatment, lost income and earning capacity, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life, disability, disfigurement, and more.

If you have lost a loved one due to the carelessness or negligence of another, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible person or entity. According to Maryland’s Wrongful Death Statute, a decedent’s surviving family members can file such a claim. These family members include a surviving spouse, child, or parent of a victim. In certain cases, a secondary beneficiary may be able to pursue damages if there are no immediate beneficiaries alive at the time of the death. Wrongful death claims are generally rooted in the legal theory of negligence. The surviving family members may be able to seek certain types of damages on behalf of their deceased loved one. These damages include loss of income, companionship and support, funeral and burial costs, and more.Enlist a Baltimore Medical Malpractice Lawyer to Assert Your Rights
