I want to sue my doctor because of my misdiagnosis and I think that things would be a lot easier if the jury knew that my doctor has medical malpractice insurance.

The above statement is one in which many people wonder in these types of cases.

To them it makes perfect sense because doctors get medical malpractice insurance to protect them if they get sued.

If you are reading this right now and thinking the same thing you are not alone.

With that said, Maryland law does not look at this issue the same way, and for good reason.

When you file a medical malpractice suit against your doctor, there are specific issues that the fact finder is looking at in your case.

The big issues are going to center around whether your treating doctor fell below the standard of care in your case, and by falling below the standard of care is this what caused your injury.

By looking at the issue like this, there really is no relevance as to insurance.

To answer these questions one does not have to look at the doctor’s medical malpractice provider.
