Your health is the most important thing you have, and when you entrust a medical provider with it, you expect your health care provider to uphold their field’s standard of care. When health care providers choose not to act in their patients’ best interest, people get hurt. It’s one of the reasons why medical malpractice is among the top leading causes of death in the United States.
If you suffered injuries or lost a loved one to medical malpractice, you could benefit from talking to one of Jenner Law’s Maryland personal injury lawyers. For more than three decades, we’ve advocated for injured people, recovering compensation for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.

Medical malpractice, also known as medical negligence, generally occurs when a doctor or facility fails to provide the standard of care expected. In other words, not getting the desired results from surgery would not constitute medical malpractice. Yet, suffering preventable injuries following a procedure could.
Doctors and other healthcare professionals must provide an appropriate standard of care to all patients. Failure to do so is the most common way medical malpractice occurs. Providing the standard of care means giving the same type and level of care as any other reasonable provider with the same training and experience.
Some types of medical malpractice we can often hold doctors and facilities accountable for include:
- Diagnostic errors
- Hospital errors
- Failure to treat promptly or properly
- Anesthesia errors
- Medication errors, such as giving the wrong medication
- Surgical errors (such as leaving a surgical tool in the body)
- Birth injuries, such as cerebral palsy and shoulder dystocia
- Emergency room errors
Don’t stress if you don’t see the cause of your personal injuries above. Jenner Law is available to learn your story and explain your options.

What Damages Can Our Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Maryland Recover?
Your recoverable damages greatly depend on the injuries, expenses, and losses you endured. Medical malpractice cases are no different. Each case has its own potential settlement value because each victim has their own unique damages.
Recoverable economic and non-economic damages in your case may include:
- Additional medical care required because of the injuries
- Ongoing and future care costs due to the malpractice
- Income losses
- Miscellaneous costs with receipts
- Pain and suffering
Sometimes, we pursue financial compensation for spouses, parents, or children who lost loved ones because of medical malpractice. These are known as wrongful death cases, and we can hold the doctor or facility legally accountable for the pain and suffering and mental anguish suffered by the spouses and children left behind, funeral costs, end-of-life care expenses, and other damages.
How does a Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorney Build a Strong Case?
For many reasons, medical malpractice cases can quickly turn into heated legal battles. Very few healthcare providers will own up to a mistake and risk losing their license. So, we must gather sufficient evidence to prove your personal injury claim’s required elements. Using evidence (like your medical records, treatment documents, and personal testimony), we must assert that:
- A healthcare provider had an obligation to uphold their field’s standard of care. This means clearly communicating treatment options, explaining any risks, and acting promptly in emergency situations.
- The healthcare provider failed to uphold their field’s standard. This means that another professional in the same field (and the same situation) would have avoided acting negligently.
- You suffered medical malpractice from delayed treatment, a misdiagnosis, or another error.
- You have losses stemming from the healthcare provider’s error.
When many people picture a “healthcare provider,” they imagine a doctor. However, other providers in the medical field can be held liable for malpractice. Over the years, our personal injury attorneys have compelled compensation from nurses, mental health providers, hospital administrators, and pharmacists.
