Requirements for a Medical Malpractice Case
Malpractice is far too common, causing up to one million injuries and 284,000 deaths in the United States every year, according to statistics from the American Medical Association. Under Maryland law, malpractice cases must meet two legal requirements to be considered valid. The malpractice must have been caused by a doctor, nurse, hospital, or another health care provider. In addition, the malpractice must have directly caused injury, disability, pain and suffering, or death.
