Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice refers generally to negligence claims against doctors, hospitals or other health care providers. For those injured in this manner in Washington, D.C., Virginia or Maryland, a medical malpractice lawsuit against the responsible party can result in the financial compensation victims need to address their medical bills, lost wages and suffering.
However, it can be difficult for plaintiffs to win these claims without the help of an accomplished medical malpractice attorney. You need to prove that your injuries were the result of a healthcare provider violating a standard of care or failing to do what a reasonably prudent health care provider would do under the same or similar circumstances.
As the defense will often argue, there are typically known risks associated with many medical procedures, so not everyone who experiences an injury while under medical care is entitled to bring a claim. An experienced malpractice attorney will hire experts to evaluate the proper medical standards.
If there is evidence to suggest that a standard of care was violated, we generally need the expert testimony of another doctor who works in the same area. Most medical malpractice cases boil down to a fight between the competing experts as to whether the health care provider did something contrary to acceptable standards. However it can often be difficult to find the appropriate doctor who is willing to testify against one of his or her own.
