As part of our evaluation, we closely examine all medical records to get a clear picture of what went wrong.

REQUIREMENTS OF A MEDICAL MALPRACTICE CLAIM

  • A medical professional or health care facility breached the standard of care. This is the kind of care that a reasonable and qualified professional is expected to deliver in a similar situation; not all medical errors result in a successful medical malpractice claim, instead, the error must be egregious.
  • A patient suffered a serious injury; you must prove an actual serious injury because of what occurred. Injuries include pain and physical, emotional suffering and financial loss.
  • The breach was the proximate or direct cause of the patient’s injury; it must be proven that your injuries were caused by the deviation from the standard of care.

Statute of Limitations for Medical Malpractice Claims

There is a time limit for initiating a medical malpractice lawsuit. In Washington, D.C. you have three years to make a claim. However, in Maryland, you must file within five years of the date of injury or within three years from the date you discovered the injury, whichever is earlier.

Wrongful death matters are treated differently in the District of Columbia where the time limit is two years. In Maryland, there is a three-year limitation on wrongful death cases.
