Having bad results during, or following a medical procedure can have drastic repercussions for a patient.
When this happens it can be hard for some people to not think that medical malpractice was the cause of their injury.
As a matter of fact, I sometimes get individuals who contact me specifically say, “the surgery turned out bad so it had to be medical malpractice.”
The purpose of this educational article is to give you a first-hand look at how attorneys investigate these types of cases.
The Basics Of A Maryland Medical Malpractice Case
When you contact a Maryland medical malpractice attorney regarding a medical injury or a childbirth injury, your attorney will be looking to see if all the elements can be met.
Essentially, to be successful in Maryland a client would have to be able to prove that their treating doctor fell below the standard of care, causing the client’s injury.
If the above elements cannot be proven then it will be really hard for a client to make their case.
As a result, this is why a proper investigation and analysis has to be done on the front end.
So How Does It Work?
With the above as a foundation, can you see how a bad result may not be medical malpractice?
The doctor in your case may have done everything the right way and the result was still bad.
Your medical expert will be the one who will have an opportunity to review not only your medical records, but the expert will speak with your attorney about the facts surrounding your case.
Does This Mean It’s Not Worth It?
If you have had a bad result during a surgery or medical procedure it still may be a good idea to reach out to an attorney, especially if the injury is serious.
An attorney will be able to at least help you have a better idea of where you stand.
Remember, your attorney will more than likely get another medical expert to essentially give you a second opinion as to the care you received.
This can be very helpful in your understanding of things, especially if you are having trouble getting a second opinion doctor on your own.
