Frequently Asked Questions for Our Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Maryland & Washington DC

Can I Pursue a Medical Malpractice Claim if I Am Unhappy with the Outcome of My Surgery?

Unfortunately, when anyone undergoes a surgical procedure, the medical results cannot be guaranteed. That means an unexpected or unsuccessful result does not necessarily mean your medical provider was negligent.

Can I Sue a Maryland Medical Provider for Something that Could Have Gone Wrong During My Procedure?

No. An injury that led to economic or non-economic damages must occur during your care and corrected right away without harm, you do not have a valid medical malpractice case.

What is Informed Consent and Why Do I Have to Provide It Before a Medical Procedure?

Medical providers must advise their patients of any potential outcomes before certain procedures or treatments are performed, including any negative consequences, side effects, or complications. This communication is technically called informed consent.

This ensures all patients have the necessary facts and information to make an informed decision about their medical treatment or procedure.

Can I Pursue a Medical Malpractice Claim in Maryland if I Signed the Informed Consent Agreement but Was Still Injured?

Informed consent is not a medical license to act negligently while providing their services. Like all medical malpractice claims, we must establish that the medical provider deviated from the applicable standard of care and that you were injured as a result to pursue compensation.

Will My Maryland Medical Malpractice Case Go to Trial?

Of all the different types of medical malpractice cases, medical malpractice claims may go to trial more often, simply because of their complex nature. However, even with a hirer trial occurrence, 93% of medical malpractice cases settle before seeing the inside of the courtroom.
