Accomplished Lawyers Fighting for Medical Malpractice Victims in Baltimore and Washington D.C

Maryland attorneys offer valuable representation after a serious medical mistake

When you put your health in the hands of a professional, you expect the best possible results and first class care. Tragically, that is not always the case.

These errors include issues in the ER, problems on the operating table, mistakes made in your doctor’s private practice, and many more. You should know that if your health care provider has caused more harm than good, you may be entitled to compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Medical malpractice across the greater Maryland area

All health care providers have a duty to adhere to the acceptable standards of care for their profession. When a doctor, nurse, technician, or other provider falls below these standards, it may be considered medical malpractice or negligence. Sometimes those actions are the result of carelessness or recklessness. In any event, these mistakes are usually preventable.

At the law firm of Schochor, Federico and Staton, we fight for medical malpractice victims and their families against the big hospitals, nursing homes, and other medical facilities as well as the specific health care providers who fail to deliver adequate care.

Some of the areas of practice our attorneys handle include:

  • Birth injuries. When something goes wrong during prenatal care or labor and delivery, the results can be catastrophic. If the wrong decisions are made, your child could sustain a serious birth injury that may even have lifelong consequences or require long-term care. Healthcare professionals have the duty to ensure your child’s birth goes as smoothly as possible. When they fail in that duty, you may be able to pursue legal action.
  • Medical malpractice. From misdiagnosis to surgical mistakes, medical malpractice encompasses a wide breadth of errors and omissions made by healthcare professionals. These mistakes happen in the doctor’s office, the ER, and on the operating table. Any number of parties could be found liable, from the hospital itself to the nurses and/or treating doctor. Our job is to hold these parties accountable for the harm they have caused.
  • Brain injuries. Brain damage could be result of carelessness during surgery, labor and delivery, or other major medical events. Brain injury is a serious matter, and could lead to permanent health complications and disability.
  • Emergency room errors. ERs are busy, high-stress places. If a doctor or nurse fails to adequately diagnose or treat your condition during your time in the ER, you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
  • Hospital errors. When in the hospital, a patient could acquire a new infection from poor care, a nurse may not administer the correct dosage or medication, or a bevy of other problems could arise. Other examples of hospital negligence may include radiology errors or surgical errors.
  • Anesthesia errors. Too much or too little medication, or the failure to properly monitor the patient may lead to serious anesthesia errors before or after an operation, which could have devastating health consequences.
  • Wrongful death. In the most tragic of all scenarios, a loved one might have died due to a medical mistake. Perhaps a doctor did not catch a life-threatening illness in time or a surgeon made a careless error during a procedure. Whatever the cause,health providers should be held legally responsible if they wrongfully cause the death of a patient.

In the most serious of cases, your loved one may have died as the result of medical malpractice. In those tragic instances, a lawyer can file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you need help with medical malpractice in Maryland, contact a lawyer at Schochor, Federico and Staton for more information.
