Towson, Maryland Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Healthcare providers go through rigorous training in the medical field and most people trust their doctors to provide the best level of care possible.  However, even rigorous training isn’t enough to prevent human error. As a result, negligent medical care happens every day.

Medical malpractice is defined as negligence by a medical professional such as doctors, nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists; or medical institutions such as clinics, hospitals or pharmacies. Negligence on the part of healthcare providers can cause unforeseen and severe consequences for patients.

As with any personal injury, if a medical malpractice injury is due to the healthcare providers’ negligence or unprofessionalism patients may be eligible for compensation.   The Law Office of Douglas T. Sachse dedicates the majority of our practice to personal injury claims, including medical malpractice claims.

The Law Office of Douglas T. Sachse believes in holding medical professionals accountable for negligent actions that cause bodily harm such as:

  • Birth injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Nursing home negligence or elder abuse
  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Emergency room errors
  • Nerve damage
  • Wrongful death claim
  • Breach of patient privacy

Medical negligence often goes undiscovered. Patients and family members who suspect medical malpractice are commonly reassured by their healthcare providers that everything possible was done in their case.  Until an investigation is started by a skilled medical malpractice attorney, there is no way in verifying the claim.

Medical Malpractice and Insurance Companies

The insurance companies that represent players in the medical industry have teams of skilled defense attorneys, medical experts, and extensive resources to defend their interests.    Insurance companies will avoid adequately compensating the injured patient or family member.

Insurance companies often push medical malpractice victims to settle their claim without an attorney.  They do not take into account the physical or mental duress that a patient may experience after falling victim to medical malpractice.
