Medical Malpractice Archives

Medical malpractice claim filed over donated organ

Hundreds of thousands of patients across the country, including some living in Maryland, spend a significant amount of time waiting for a much-needed organ transplant. These surgeries, if performed under the right circumstances and in an appropriate time frame, can be life-saving. Many family members who are considered an appropriate match for transplant are generally willing to provide the necessary organ tissue. However, if the transplant fails to save the patient's life, questions may arise regarding the surgery, which could lead to claims of medical malpractice.

Expecting mothers rely on advice, counsel of their doctors

When women learn that they're pregnant, the news is often welcomed with joy. No matter how excited an expecting parent is, however, there's always going to be a bit of anxiety or concern. After all, parents simply want to make sure that their children arrive into the world healthy and ready to thrive.

Kidney transplant goes wrong when nurse tosses healthy kidney

Couple sues doctor and hospital for baby's birth injuries

The birth of a baby is typically a highly anticipated event for parents in Baltimore. After nine months of paying special attention to what you eat, getting the proper amount of exercise and sleep, going to regular doctor’s visits and doing everything in your power to ensure that your baby is born health and strong, you depend on your doctor to properly monitor your labor to ensure that everything proceeds normally and safely.

Parents sue hospital after baby dies of legionnaire's disease

The death of a child in Baltimore is always a tragedy, but especially so when it occurs as the result of the negligence of another human being, especially one who has been entrusted to care for the health and wellbeing of the child.

Baltimore cardiologist sued for unnecessary procedures

Medical negligence results in quadruple amputation

Being told that you are going to lose an arm or a leg may be one of the most devastating thing a person can hear in Baltimore. After all, we rely on our limbs for virtually everything including walking, working, feeding ourselves and a myriad of other things. Having an amputation performed is hard enough, but knowing it could have been avoided can be absolutely devastating.

Medical malpractice lawsuits less common for primary care

People who feel ill commonly pick up the phone and make an appointment with their primary care physician, internal medicine practitioner or family practice doctor. These specialties attract doctors who are somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades. It is their job to make an initial diagnosis, prescribe medicine for common illnesses, and make referrals to specialists. Patients often feel close to their family physician and trust him or her to correctly determine the source of any medical problems. However, according to a physician at Baltimore’s Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, every year at least 150,000 people in the United States suffer harm from medical errors due to their doctor’s missed or incorrect diagnosis.
