Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Medical Malpractice LawyerEven though medical technology keeps improving, and advances in medicine continue to improve and lengthen people’s lives, the need for an experienced medical malpractice law firm Maryland residents can rely on is on the rise.

When people have something wrong with them and they go to the doctor for help, they do not expect to wind up worse off than they were before they sought assistance for their problem. An unfortunate reality is that this happens all too often with the results ranging from complications that are frustrating but not catastrophic- to catastrophic and sometimes even- untimely deaths. When injuries happen to patients because of a physician or other healthcare practitioner’s negligence, or when a patient becomes ill or develops a debilitating condition because of negligence, the negligent medical professionals may be liable for costs related to the patient’s injuries or illness.

If you or someone you love is a victim of medical malpractice, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation with a lawyer who is licensed to practice in the state that your injury occurred. Medical malpractice laws differ from state to state which is one of the many reasons that it is a good idea to enlist the help of a law firm that covers the jurisdiction where an injury occurred.

If you are concerned about medical malpractice that occurred in Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC or the surrounding areas, contact Cohen & Cohen We do not think that injured people and their families, or the surviving members of a medical malpractice victim, should be going through this kind of ordeal alone. While we cannot make the reality of a medical malpractice event go away, we can work hard to try to protect the victim’s rights. One way we do this is by trying to get the maximum amount of financial compensation for the victim, or the victim’s remaining family members.

For a medical malpractice law firm Maryland medical malpractice victims and their families can recommend, contact Cohen & Cohen, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A member of our compassionate legal team is available to discuss your situation and to give you a free case evaluation.

Basic Requirements for a Medical Malpractice Case

While many medical malpractice laws are similar from state to state, it is import to have legal advice come from an attorney who is licensed to practice in the state the injury occurred. Information provided here should not be construed as legal advice in any way.

Many states, including Maryland, say that medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, radiologist or other certificated health care professional or a healthcare facility, fails to meet the basic standards of care that is acceptable in the medical community. As well, a medical malpractice claim must meet two requirements:

Negligence A doctor, nurse, hospital or other healthcare provider, acted negligently towards the
care of their patient

Injury The act of medical malpractice because of negligence, directly resulted in injury, illness,
disability, pain and suffering, or death of healthcare practitioner’s patient

Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorneys

If you or someone you love was injured because of a Maryland doctor or hospital’s mistake, it may be in your best interest to contact a team of experienced Maryland medical malpractice attorneys. If someone has tragically died because of a healthcare provider or hospital’s negligence, their immediate family may be able to protect their deceased loved one’s rights with the help of a good team of medical malpractice attorneys.

If someone submitted to a “routine” medical procedure and then experienced complications and/or unforeseen side effects long past the prescribed recovery time, they may be entitled to compensation for expenses related to their injury or illness. If someone experiences unnecessary pain and suffering at the hands of a medical professional, it is bad enough that this has happened, the victim should not suffer the financial repercussions of a medical professional’s negligence. If a Maryland healthcare provider failed to diagnose a serious condition, you may be the victim of medical malpractice who will benefit from the help of experienced attorneys.

If any of the aforementioned, common reasons people need the help of medical malpractice attorneys that are licensed to protect medical malpractice victims throughout the state of Maryland, or one not mentioned here have happened to you, it may be time to try to get legal help and the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

While many people in the United States are fortunate to have some of the best doctors and healthcare facilities in the world, the unfortunate reality is that everyone, including healthcare providers and the staff at healthcare facilities, make mistakes. If you think or know that you or someone you care about has been a victim of medical malpractice, statistically, there is a good chance that you are right. Estimates from the Institute of Medicine indicate that there are anywhere from 44,000 – 98,000 deaths per year and up to one million injuries as a result of medical malpractice in the United States.

If you or someone you care about is one of the many unfortunate medical malpractice victims in Maryland, now may be a good time to contact attorneys who are experienced with successfully defending the rights of Maryland medical malpractice victims.

Death from Medical Malpractice

A report in the American Medical Association’s journal indicates that Institute of Medicine’s estimates are significantly lower than what the reality is and they report that the number of deaths per year is closer to approximately 284,000.

The following are common reasons why people die from medical malpractice that could have easily been prevented were it not for the negligence of one or more person:

  • Negative effects of medications
  • Infections that start while a patient is in the hospital
  • Non-medical errors in hospitals
  • Medical errors and mistakes
  • Unnecessary surgery

It is horribly wrong when someone loses their life or becomes seriously injured or ill because of a healthcare or hospital’s negligence.

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.
