Point blank, is it worth it for me to file a medical malpractice case?

If you are asking yourself this question right now know that you are not alone in your thinking.

The truth of the matter is that ultimately you must make that call for yourself as to whether you want to, or should, file a medical malpractice case.

With that said, there is one issue that you can think about right which can help you get to your decision.

Under Maryland law, all injury cases have to meet certain elements.

These elements, in their simplest forms are Duty, Breach of said Duty, Causation, and Damages.

The purpose of this educational article and above video is to explain to you the issue of damages.

When you think about damages look at it like this.

What, if any harm or injury has been done to you?

In a medical malpractice case you are looking at a harm or injury to you which stems out of the negligent actions or in-actions or a doctor (nurses included) and or hospital.

If you do not have any damages then it is going to be very hard for you to be successful with your case because, as mentioned above, damages are an important element in these types of cases.

Another important thing to keep in mind is the amount of damages.

What we mean by that is if it will cost more to bring the lawsuit against the doctor or hospital than the amount of your damages, it’s probably not going to be a good idea to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

The cost in that type of situation will be more than your recovery.
