Wrongful Death

Oxon Hill & Fort Washington Medical Malpractice

Don’t suffer because of healthcare provider negligence

Doctors, nurses and others in the healthcare industry have a duty to meet acceptable standards of care in every transaction with a patient. When their failure to do so causes you harm, you have every right to pursue compensation for your injuries. However, seeking damages can be difficult without the help of an attorney — Maryland medical malpractice law is complex and often very confusing.

Knowing when to file a medical malpractice lawsuit in Oxon Hill or Fort Washington

While any error by a healthcare professional has the potential to cause significant harm, not all mistakes are considered medical malpractice. Medical malpractice claims must show, without a doubt, that the healthcare provider in question failed to meet acceptable standards of care as defined by the law and judged by their peers. As such, you need an expert witness to testify on your behalf during a malpractice lawsuit.

Attorney William McCaskill has an in-depth understanding of Maryland medical malpractice law and can meet with you to determine whether your injury was caused by medical negligence and whether it is worthwhile to pursue a claim. If he believes you do have a valid lawsuit, he works with expert witnesses and third parties to assess the true extent of your injuries and secure evidence to prove your case in court. William is dedicated to seeing your claim through to its ultimate resolution and doggedly pursues justice on your behalf.
