Lives “turned upside down due to the negligence of others.”
That dire result is often the direct consequence of substandard medical care delivery. Indeed, material mistakes committed by doctors, nurses, lab techs, pharmacists and other health care principals routinely spur catastrophic outcomes for victims and their loved ones in Maryland and across the country.
We know that to be true from extensive personal experience at the proven Maryland personal injury law firm of Thomas V. Miller, Jr., P.A. That above quoted material comes from our website, and it is buttressed by our decades-long advocacy of individuals and families that have been harmed by medical malpractice acts and omissions.
Those run a wide gamut. Victims file compelling claims underscoring botched care ranging from diagnostic error/delay, medication mistakes and surgical mishaps to birth defects, patient abuse, facility-acquired infections and more.
Although the catalysts driving malpractice and patient harm are different, they all share one common attribute, namely this: They almost never occur absent some marked deviation from a recognized standard of care.
Put another way: They don’t arise without accompanying negligence.
And that is preventable when medical pros simply do their jobs in a reasonably competent way. Patients unquestionably have a right to assume they will.
When they don’t, injured victims and their families can take meaningful action aimed at a maximum money recovery. Parties harmed by medical negligence often find that being proactive in the wake of an injury is empowering. A malpractice complaint can importantly spotlight all parties who need to be held accountable, as well as secure compensation for medical costs, ongoing rehabilitation, lost income, pain and suffering and additional harms.
