Baltimore Medical Malpractice Lawyers Assist Harmed Patients
The knowledgeable attorneys of Holzman & Dickriede have successfully represented medical malpractice clients in Baltimore and throughout Maryland for more than 50 years, routinely obtaining generous awards.
Our accomplished lawyers handle a wide array of matters on behalf of victimized patients and their families, including litigation involving birth injuries, surgical errors, prescription drug mistakes, emergency room errors, nursing home negligence, psychiatric mistakes and diagnosis problems. If you believe that a doctor, nurse or hospital violated their professional standards, it’s important to understand that expert medical testimony is usually required to prove this point. When trying these cases, we regularly consult with a number of licensed healthcare professionals and retain prominent medical experts who have a gift for clearly explaining treatment mistakes to jurors.
Attorneys litigate claims stemming from all types of healthcare errors
Determining whether a healthcare provider violated their legal duty can be complicated. Starting with a free initial consultation, we’ll investigate your situation thoroughly and help determine if relief is warranted for malpractice relating to:
Any type of surgery demands the utmost care. Regardless of whether the injury occurred during an orthopedic procedure, eye surgery, a cosmetic operation or any other treatment, our lawyers will get to the bottom of what happened.
We take on doctors who didn’t take proper steps when indicators of a serious medical condition presented themselves. Whether the missed or misinterpreted diagnosis was breast cancer, prostate cancer, heart trouble, stroke or something else, our attorneys will work to demonstrate how the failure causes significant damage.
Serious problems result from inappropriate prescriptions, incorrect instructions and the failure to account for potentially dangerous drug interactions.
One error in prenatal care or the childbirth process might have lifelong consequences. When pursuing compensation in birth injury cases, our firm details the present and future harm that victims and their parents face.
Putting someone out of consciousness to complete a medical procedure requires skill and constant attention. The wrong dosage of anesthesia could cause permanent damage or even wrongful death. If harm has resulted from anesthesia, we’ll work diligently to see that justice is done.
Maryland law sets statutory deadlines for filing medical malpractice claims, so prompt action can be crucial when it comes to locating key evidence and witnesses.
To ensure timely investigation and filing of your claim, our attorneys schedule appointments that fit your schedule. We can also visit you at your hospital or home.
Understanding the Process
Working with Holzman & Dickriede
Knowledgeable advocates guide malpractice victims through the legal process
Initiating a medical malpractice complaint against a negligent doctor, nurse or hospital requires a certificate of merit, in which a medical expert attests that the professional standard of care was breached.
In some instances, medical malpractice cases are resolved through arbitration, but either party can choose to bypass this method of alternative dispute resolution.
Regardless of how your case is handled, we’ll provide an honest assessment of what the outcome of a trial might be so you can carefully consider any settlement offers.
Our firm will also explain how caps on noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering could affect your recovery.
