Hospital Negligence

Depend on Our Knowledgeable Maryland Medical Malpractice Lawyers

When you’re sick or injured, you rightfully expect medical staffers to provide you with high-quality medical care and cutting-edge treatments. In a perfect world, hospitals would organize their staff to work as a cohesive team to successfully diagnose and treat your symptoms. Instead, overwhelmed medical staffers are unreasonably pressured by hospital management to cycle through as many patients as possible. As a result, these stressed medical staffers start making detrimental mistakes that directly harm patients.

If you’re a victim of hospital negligence, call the Maryland medical malpractice attorneys at the Law Office of Robert Castro, P.A. We can investigate your case and help you file an effective medical malpractice claim. Our trial-tested legal team can effectively represent even the most complex and sensitive cases. With our assistance, you can secure a beneficial settlement or verdict that yields significant compensation.

We offer weekend and evening appointments. Call our Waldorf medical malpractice lawyers at (301) 870-1200 to discover your legal options.

What Is Hospital Negligence?

Patients deserve to be treated in clean hospitals run by attentive staff. If you’ve been injured by the actions, errors, or omissions of a hospital’s administrative, medical, or attendant staff, you may have the grounds to file a medical malpractice claim. Of course, this is only so long as the hospital employee was performing a job-related action at the time of your injury.

Examples of hospital negligence include, but are not limited to:

  • Misreading or ignoring laboratory results
  • Failure to provide medical assistance
  • Improper medication or dosage
  • Poor aftercare
  • Premature discharge
  • Mishandling or dropping a patient
  • Injuring a patient by using faulty or broken equipment

For your lawsuit to be successful, your legal team needs to prove 3 essential facts: the hospital employee violated the standard of care, you were injured by the employee’s negligence, and you suffered significant physical and financial damages as a result of the employee’s mistake.

A positive case result may yield the following damages:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Long-term professional caregiving fees
  • Non-economic damages

In Maryland, a plaintiff has five years to file a medical malpractice claim. If you pass the statute of limitations, the court may refuse to hear your case. Of course, there are exceptions and nuances to this law, including the discovery rule, so it’s important to discuss your case with a legal representative as soon as possible.
