We place our lives and those of our loved ones in the hands of medical professionals. However, when one makes a mistake, it can result in a serious injury or death.

Understanding Medical Malpractice Claims

Getting a poor medical outcome does not in itself form the basis for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

For a medical malpractice case to succeed, several elements must be proven including:

  • The medical treatment provided must have failed to reach the expected standard of care.
  • The failure must be clearly demonstrated, usually through the testimony of medical experts.
  • You must also have suffered significant losses, such as the need for additional surgery or medical care, lost income, emotional suffering or the death of a family member.

When McGowan & Cecil, LLC represents you, our Laurel medical malpractice lawyers will undertake a comprehensive investigation of all aspects of your case. Working with one or more nationally recognized medical experts, we will document the negligence of the doctor, surgeon or nurse. We will calculate the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses, including medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering. Finally, we will work tirelessly to advocate for you in settlement negotiations or at trial, seeking the best possible result.

Whether it involves a surgical error, a nursing error or some other type of medical negligence, you can depend on McGowan & Cecil, LLC, for skillful, results-oriented representation.

We provide free consultations to all our clients. Contact McGowan & Cecil, LLC at (301) 761-2007 to discuss your case with an experienced nurse and physician error attorney in Laurel.
