Maryland medical malpractice law can impose liability on health care providers that fail to exercise due care in treating patients. The medical community is held to a higher legal standard than other groups because of the skill and training necessary to handle patient lives. Mistakes by specialists, surgeons, and other health care providers can lead to permanent injury and even death. Preventable errors that harm patients can breach the legal duty health care providers have to patients and therefore result in liability. Medical malpractice may involve:
- Burns, infection
- Informed consent
- Prescription errors
- Failure to diagnose
- Untreated conditions
- Birth injuries
- Surgical errors
- Da Vinci surgical robot injury
- Negligent surgical training
- Laparoscopic cholecystectomy injury

Personal Injury & Accidents
Personal injury law includes many instances of negligence. Negligence refers to the violation of a legal duty owed to others to exercise reasonable care. Unintentional yet harmful mistakes can breach this legal duty. When reckless conduct causes preventable accidents leading to injury, at-fault parties can be held liable to the victim(s) in damages. Negligent behavior causing personal injury or wrongful death often involves:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian crossings
- Motorcycle collisions
- Speeding, lane changes
- Drunk, impaired driving
- Nursing home negligence
- Construction, slip-and-falls
- Defective goods or products
- Premises and product liability
Maryland law can impose personal injury liability on negligent parties that fail to exercise due care and injure others as a result. This may include reckless drivers and commercial carriers that cause motor vehicle collisions; negligent health care providers who fall below the standard of care owed to patients; property owners and contractors who fail to repair or remove dangerous conditions on the premises; and manufacturers liable for defective products that injure consumers.
