The public puts a tremendous deal of trust into the medical professionals who treat them. Doctors, nurses, and other health professionals are some of the most important members of our society. For the most part, they do their best to ensure they are providing patients with the best possible treatment. Sometimes, however, mistakes are made and these professionals act negligently in a way that their peers would not. This can cause a patient to suffer from serious health impacts that can haunt them for the rest of their lives. Medical malpractice is a serious accusation that requires strong legal counsel to pursue. If you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, you can count on the legal team at Ruben Law Firm to help you navigate your case.

Types of Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens more often than we might realize. There are many different ways that medical malpractice can occur, simply because of the scope and sheer complexity of the human body. When a medical professional is negligent, the patient will often be subject to additional medical care, resulting in additional medical expenses and lost wages. With so many medical issues that could potentially arise, our firm has seen many different types of malpractice, including:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Prescription errors or overdoses
  • Labor & birth injuries
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Post-surgical infections
  • Improper care and follow-up

Statute of Limitations

Anytime an individual wishes to take legal action against a negligent party, they must first determine how long they have to file their claim in accordance with the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations acts as a deadline that is determined by the state and is dependent on the type of case that you wish to file. In the state of Maryland, all medical malpractice cases must be filed within either 3 years of the date the injury was discovered or 5 years from the date the injury was committed, depending on which comes first.

Recovering Compensation After an Accident

If you suffered as a result of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial burdens that were caused by this negligence. You are required to prove that the medical professional failed to meet the standard of care that his or her peers would meet in the same situation. If you are able to do this, you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, lost wages, lost future wages, and more. If a loved one passed away because of medical malpractice, you may be entitled to wrongful death benefits.
