Medical Malpractice Cases in MD

Our Hagerstown Lawyers Are Here to Protect Your Rights

We trust our physicians and medical practitioners to make correct decisions when we come to them for care, and often these split-second decisions are the difference between successful treatment and devastating injuries. While every medical mistake does not result in a medical malpractice lawsuit, if you suspect a negligent or careless error resulted in a serious physical injury, our Hagerstown medical malpractice attorneys can help you or your family discover if you are entitled to financial compensation.

In addition to mistakes made by the medical professional themselves, serious physical injuries could also result from:

  • Hospital negligence
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia problems
  • Prescriptions errors

What is the Statute of Limitations on Medical Malpractice?

According to West Virginia Code section 55-7B-4, medical malpractice claims must be started within two years of the date of the injury OR within two years of the date when the injury was discovered. Relying on the "discovery rule" however, is not recommended. If you file a claim two years after an injury was discovered, you are required to prove that the injury was not immediately apparent and was indeed discovered later.

It's also important to know that if an injury is discovered after the fact, if the event that caused the injury occurred more than ten years ago, no matter how serious the injury is, you no longer have the legal right to file a medical malpractice claim.
