Medical Malpractice

You trust your doctors and health care professionals to help you get better, but what can you do when they are to blame for your injuries? At the Silver Spring law offices of Cooper Law Firm, we protect the rights of individuals throughout Maryland and the greater Washington D.C. area who have lost a loved one as the result of medical malpractice. From the failure to diagnose cancer to hospital negligence, we will get you proper medical care and full compensation.

It is only normal to have questions about your legal future and medical concerns after suffering medical malpractice. Contact us today for a free initial consultation and get answers you can understand.

A successful medical malpractice claim depends on the ability to demonstrate that a doctor, medical provider, nurse, dentist, hospital, clinic or residential care facility failed to follow applicable standards of care. With over 40 years of personal injury experience, our lawyers have achieved substantial results on behalf of the victims of medical malpractice. We are prepared to evaluate and pursue your case arising from:

  • A birth injury such as cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy or shoulder dystocia
  • Misdiagnosis/failure to properly diagnose cancer or another serious, treatable disease
  • Emergency room errors, including failure to diagnose and treat heart attacks and strokes
  • Brain injuries, paralysis, or other severe consequences of doctor negligence
  • Surgical errors, including retained medical devices (like sponges, scalpels, retractors and scissors), anesthesia awareness and preventable complications

Working with an extensive network of qualified medical professionals and other law firms, we have the resources to handle the most complex medical malpractice cases. We will thoroughly assess your ability to collect your claim, and make sure you maximize your recovery. We will also take care of your medical bills and legal fees until you get the full extent of compensation you deserve.
