Dental Malpractice Lawyer MarylandDental Malpractice Claims in Maryland

If you have suffered because of something a dentist or employee at a dental facility did wrong, a good dental malpractice lawyer Maryland dental malpractice victims and their families recommend, may be able to help you get monetary compensation from the party or parties that caused you harm.

Maryland Malpractice Claims

In Maryland, the same laws that apply to medical malpractice apply to dental malpractice. Because of this, claims against dentists, oral surgeons, endodontists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, periodontists, and dental hygienists, are often referred to as medical malpractice claims

Expert Testimony

Expert testimony is typically a large component of a dental or medical malpractice claim. Expert testimony comes from credentialed professionals in the field in question. For example, if a claim is against a periodontist, an expert that testifies for either the plaintiff or the defense will likely be a periodontist. Someone who only has a dental degree would not likely be called for a case involving a periodontist, except for the fact that a periodontist is a dentist who has completed dental school and an additional three years of education and certification beyond this.

Burden of Proof

In a dental malpractice case, like in most personal injury cases, the plaintiff has the burden of proof to prove that the defendant did in fact cause them harm and that this harm could have been avoided had the defendant provided an acceptable standard of care. To support this, the plaintiff’s expert witness(es) need to testify that the defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of the harm that was done. In turn, the defendant’s witness needs to be able to give testimony to support that the defendant performed their duties to the standard of care that is accepted in the dental community, or specific niche of the dental community that they are a part of. 

Maryland Dental Malpractice Claims

If you have been injured because of a Maryland dentist or dental facility, the sooner you contact a good Maryland dental malpractice lawyer, the sooner they may be able to start putting together expert witnesses; start compiling and filing all of the necessary paperwork; make preliminary court appearances to make your claim official; and if your case goes to trial instead of settling, they can represent you during the trial.

Dental Malpractice Settlements

Depending on a plaintiff’s specific circumstances and what the defense offers if they even make one, when a defense offers a settlement, a plaintiff may decide that they would rather take what is offered than risk going to trial and coming away with nothing if their case is decided in favor of the defendant.

A settlement offer can be made before a case goes to trial or any time during it, right up until before the jury or judge’s verdict is about to be read. Depending on their circumstances, it may be more financially beneficial for the plaintiff to take a settlement instead of risking losing their case completely. As well as, the time it takes to get through a jury or bench trial and the stress that doing this often causes, many plaintiffs prefer to take a settlement.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
