For whatever reason, in some instances we will decline to represent a client in their Maryland Medical Malpractice Claim.
The next question that some people ask is that if they want to represent themselves will they still have to pay for their own medical expert?
The simple answer to the question is yes.
This is due to the fact that under Maryland law in these types of cases, a medical expert is used to explain the standard of care, how your treating doctor violated the standard of care, and how by doing this caused your injury.
Many medical experts will not agree to testify for a person bringing a medical malpractice law suit on their own. This can be for a number of reasons. However, one reason could deal with the fact that a person in this type of case without an attorney can be under a serious disadvantage.
