Maryland Malpractice Attorney

Experienced Washington DC & Maryland Medical Malpractice Lawyer – Attorney Walter E. Laake, Jr.


When we visit our doctor for a routine check-up or book an appointment with a specialist, we expect the degree of professionalism typically sought and achieved in the medical field. We expect to be treated with the standard of care generally required of doctors, nurses, dentists, and other medical practitioners. However, sometimes the people we trust to make our health better and heal our medical conditions fail to provide quality care and negligently put us in harm’s way.

Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, or medical practitioner does not practice medicine to the standard required of the medical profession. Misdiagnoses, negligence, and unreasonable delays in treatment are all grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. More than 100,000 individuals die every year from improperly diagnosed ailments and illnesses in the United States. Do not let healthcare providers avoid responsibility for negligent treatment.
