Do you think you have a legal malpractice claim?

You may already know that Maryland attorneys are expected to meet certain requirements and owe you a duty of care as a client. When your case does not turn out as you expected, you may wonder whether your attorney committed legal malpractice. The fact of the matter is that no one can guarantee you the outcome to your case that you desire. However, when your attorney makes an error that facilitates a negative outcome to your case, you may have a legal malpractice claim.

Understanding how legal malpractice works

An attorney has a professional obligation to advocate for your best interest. When an attorney fails to do so, the outcome of legal proceedings may leave you in a bind or literally cost you money. Thankfully, the remedy of legal malpractice may enable you to recoup what you have lost and hold that attorney accountable.

Don't let workers' compensation benefits fall by the wayside

Do you spend any of your workday on a ladder, a scaffold or on some other surface that puts you several feet off the ground? If so, you more than likely already know that a fall is a significant hazard for you. A fall can cause any number of serious injuries that can change the course of your life, and when that fall happens at work, you may be entitled to Maryland workers' compensation benefits.

Medical malpractice news: Doctor ordered to stop seeing patients

Many people around the country, including those here in Maryland, trust that when a doctor claims to be able to diagnose, treat or operate on a patient, he or she can actually back up that claim. Unfortunately, many medical malpractice cases here and elsewhere stem from a doctor or surgeon's lack of experience in a certain area. Nevertheless, some continue to practice medicine, which jeopardizes the safety and health of their patients.

The alarming number of diagnostic errors in the ICU and ER

When a family member needs prompt medical help, you trust the team of doctors and nurses working in the emergency room (ER) will diagnose the condition and treat it properly. The same goes for the medical team that will attend to your loved one if he or she ends up in the intensive care unit (ICU).

A car vs. building motor vehicle accident injures several patrons

Hearing about a collision more than likely makes most Maryland residents think of roadways and metal on metal impacts. In many cases, that is what happened. However, occasionally, a motor vehicle accident occurs outside the norm, but it can still have serious consequences to those involved.
