Medical Malpractice

For the most part, doctors and medical staff have our best interests in mind when they provide diagnoses and administer treatment. Unfortunately, medical professionals are still open to errors in judgment, mistakes and negligence that can lead to patients experiencing permanent personal injury or death.

Medical malpractice can include:

  • Medication errors
  • Surgical errors
  • Diagnostic errors, including cancer misdiagnosis
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home neglect and abuse

Defending the Rights of Maryland Medical Malpractice Victims

Medical malpractice in Maryland is considered a negligence claim, but there are very specific rules regarding liability and burden of proof. The “contributory negligence” law in Maryland applies to medical malpractice cases, as well, meaning that if you are partially responsible for your medical injuries, it is very hard to recover damages.

These cases can become complex, as they usually involve more than just one individual who made one mistake. That is why it’s essential to consult an experienced medical malpractice attorney about your injuries. The Law Offices of Edward J. Ehlers can answer all of your medical malpractice questions and help you seek compensation for your injuries.
