Frequently Asked Questions

What constitutes medical malpractice in Maryland, and how do I know if I have a case?

In Maryland, medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional, such as a doctor or dentist, fails to provide the standard of care that a reasonably competent medical professional would have provided under similar circumstances, resulting in harm to the patient. If you believe that you or a loved one suffered an injury due to a medical error or negligence, it’s essential to consult with a seasoned legal team like Haskell & Dyer. Our expertise allows us to review the details of your situation, consult with medical experts, and determine if you have a viable claim.

Are there any caps or limits on the damages I can recover in a medical malpractice lawsuit in Maryland?

Yes, Maryland does have caps on non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases. These caps limit compensation for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other intangible harms. However, there’s no limit on economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages. The exact cap amount can vary depending on the year the malpractice occurred and the specifics of your case. Haskell & Dyer’s knowledgeable attorneys can provide more detailed information tailored to your unique circumstances.

How do I determine the value of my medical malpractice claim?

The value of a medical malpractice claim can vary based on several factors, including the severity of the injury, the impact on your quality of life, and the extent of economic damages such as medical bills and lost wages. Furthermore, non-economic damages like pain, suffering, and emotional distress also play a role in determining the overall compensation. At Haskell & Dyer, we conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your case, consulting with medical professionals and financial experts to ascertain the true value of your claim. This ensures that we’re pursuing the maximum compensation you’re entitled to, reflecting the full extent of the harm you’ve endured.
