One of the most frustrating things for a person who has suffered a medical injury to endure is to not be able to get an attorney to help them in their quest for justice. In some instances these individuals have spoken to multiple Maryland medical malpractice attorneys and have come to a dead end. After speaking to these attorneys they are still unsure as to why the attorney did not take the case.
The truth of the matter is that not all medical injury cases will be successful in a court of law. There are many reasons as to why this happens, but the most common one can be that the doctor who treated the patient did not fall below the standard of care. This issue of standard of care is one in which many people know very little. The reason being is because doctors and other medical experts are the ones who have to testify as to the standard of care.
If an attorney, through their research determines that the doctor did not fall below the standard of care, the case will not be successful. This can often be a hard fact to endure, but it is the position of Maryland law currently.
