Fighting Errors, Negligence And Wrongdoing In The Medical Field
When you visit your family physician, a doctor at a hospital, or undergo surgery, you are likely under the impression that your health and safety are the highest priority. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When negligent medical professionals are present, mistakes can occur. These mistakes can lead to life-altering injuries and even death.
Our team at The Law Offices of Thomas Maronick Jr LLC is here to help if you or someone you love was injured by medical negligence of any kind. We believe in holding medical professionals accountable when they provide substandard care and a patient is injured as a result. Though these cases are technical in nature and highly complex, we have the resources to utilize experts and enough of our own experience to be effective. We offer our services to people throughout Maryland, including Baltimore, Ocean City, Hartford, and Anne Arundel County.

When To Contact A Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Not every case of a side effect or adverse reaction to the medication, complication after surgery or another medical injury is related to negligence. These cases can be difficult to manage because the burden of proof will lie on the patient’s shoulders to prove that the medical professional or facility in question failed to provide acceptable care based on today’s standards. It will be necessary to find the instance of substandard care to hold a doctor or another medical professional liable.
We recommend contacting our offices if you feel as though you were:
- Given the wrong medication or the wrong dose
- The victim of a mistake at a medical facility
- The victim of unnecessary surgery or another procedure
- Wrongfully discharged
- Not properly informed of the risks associated with a procedure
- The victim of substandard medical care
An attorney at our firm can talk to you about what occurred to determine whether substandard care was the cause, and we can move forward with a lawsuit to seek compensation for your medical expenses and possibly much more.

Medical negligence can occur for a variety of reasons. For-profit hospitals and other places of medicine are often distracted by a dollar sign, rather than focused on helping people get well. When this happens, staffing numbers are kept low so profits can remain high. Then unqualified nurses, physicians, surgeons and other staff are asked to perform duties that are beyond their experience.
