  • What to do when you were told by your medicine coordinator to reduce your medicine and it caused serious medical problems.

    My husband received a liver transplant three years ago and was doing very well up until recently when his medicine coordinator suggested that he reduce his rejection medicine to two capsules a day to one a day. Doing so, caused serious medical pro...

    I agree with my colleague Ms. Griggs above. Even if you are not going to speak with a medical malpractice attorney right away, it is still a good idea to get the medical records not only from your husband's current stays in the hospital, but the records showing the reduction suggested by the medical coordinator.

    The reason the records are very important here is because if a medical malpractice claim is pursued, under Maryland law you will need to have a medical expert state the standard of care in this situation and how your treating medical providers fell below that standard of care. One of the ways medical experts do this is by reviewing a patient's medical records. An attorney can help you with the medical expert aspect of things.

    Below I have linked a video which may help you further. Good luck!

  • Do I have a medical negligence case?

    I agree with the other attorneys who have commented on your question. One more thing, be mindful that you have a certain amount of time before you must bring a medical malpractice claim here in Maryland. In addition, if you have not already done so, begin requesting your medical records from your initial doctor's visit if you can. This can help speed the process up if you do decide to contact an attorney and have them review your situation.

    You will have to do this in writing, but many doctors and hospital's have forms that you can fill out for the request.

    I have linked some information below to help you better understand what you would have to prove here in Maryland to be successful in a medical malpractice case.

    Good luck!

    Before you can go forward with a medical malpractice case here in Maryland you are going to have to have another doctor pretty much say that your treating doctor messed up. If your new doctor will go on the record saying that you should have never been prescribed Flecainide in your condition, it helps your case a lot. Contact an attorney in your area for a better assessment.

    Marcus’s Answer

    Yes you can sue in this type of case. What most people do not understand is that these types of cases can take a long time and cost a lot of money to pursue. Many medical malpractice attorneys will not take cases in which there is no type of permanent harm because of the costs associated with the process. For example, under Maryland law you are going to have to have another medical professional get onboard and say that your first doctor messed up.
