Your doctor almost killed you during a medical procedure!
You are not injured but you almost were by the actions of the doctor.
Now you are wondering can you sue now for medical malpractice?
Your thinking is essentially, can I sue if my doctor almost kills me?
To really understand the answer to this question you need to know what you have to prove to be successful in a Maryland medical malpractice case.
Medical malpractice cases are derived in their basic form from tort law.
Basic tort law requires a duty, breach of duty, causation, & damages.
Add to this, for a medical malpractice claim, one must prove that their treating doctor fell below the standard of care owed to them by their doctor, causing their injury or damages.
With that said, it should be easy to understand that if your doctor almost injured you and you have no other injuries,you will not be successful in a Maryland medical malpractice case.
So the answer to the above question is that if your doctor almost killed you, you did not die, and if you have no other injuries, you will not be able to prove damages.
As a result, you are more than likely not going to be successful in your case against your doctor.
