Physicians and surgeons rarely admit to harming or rendering improper treatment and care. Patients for their part have a right to expect that they will be treated respectfully and competently according to an acceptable standard of care. Brault Graham has attorneys who are dedicated to nothing but the investigation of claims on behalf of injured patients and their families in an effort to determine and advocate on behalf of their clients against doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies.
For the injured patient, significant medical expenses, lost income, physical suffering and emotional distress may justifiably require considerable compensation. When doctors do commit malpractice, it is a benefit to the medical community and the public at large to hold that doctor accountable for the harm caused. Our firm provides strong, effective representation in medical malpractice lawsuits, based on decades of experience in civil litigation throughout Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Comprehensive Representation in Complex Medical Malpractice Cases
A key to success in medical malpractice claims or defense is establishing whether or not a physician or other healthcare professional violated the expected medical standard for that type of professional in the community, and if so, whether that violation caused the injury and damages alleged. Expert medical testimony is typically presented by both sides to the dispute, so what becomes vital is having attorneys on your side who understand the medical evidence and know how to present that evidence and testimony in a manner that is both compelling and comprehensible to a judge or jury who do not have medical training. Brault Graham possesses that level of knowledge and ability necessary to prevail in the most complicated of circumstances. Our medical malpractice representation includes all of the following types of medical malpractice claims, among others:
- Birth injuries
- Failure to diagnose
- Delay in diagnosis
- Medication errors
- Drug liability
- Surgical errors
- Medical-device cases
- Cosmetic surgery
- Routine-care negligence
