Every day, patients enter hospitals and doctor’s offices for routine checkups, surgical procedures, and emergency care, while entrusting their lives and their health to health care providers. While many patients check out with their health and bodies intact, some leave in worse shape than when they were admitted--and others will not check out at all.
At Meyers, Rodbell & Rosenbaum, P.A., we are proud to advocate on behalf of victims who have suffered serious injuries due to medical malpractice in Maryland and Washington D.C. Our team of medical negligence lawyers understand the procedural complexities involved in medical malpractice cases, and we do not hesitate to go to trial to get you the full amount you are owed. We have a proven track record for success in complex malpractice litigation.
