Baltimore County Medical Negligence Trial Results In Defense Verdict

The Maryland Daily Record reports that A Baltimore County, Maryland jury ruled in favor of the Defendant doctor and St. Joseph Medical Center in a recent medical malpractice case involving gallbladder removal surgery. The Plaintiff was represented by Salsbury, Clements, Bekman, Marder & Adkins of Baltimore City, MD (a good law firm--they do not lose very often). In this case the patient, age 78, arrived at St. Joseph's Medical Center Hospital with abdominal pain (stomach pain) with an inflammation of the gallbladder and a dilated bowel. Dr. Lerman removed the gallbladder the next day. The bowel widened but Dr. Lerman says he did not find evidence of a bowel obstruction. Later tests showed a small-bowel obstruction so a second surgery was done to remove the blockage and reconnect the small intestine. The patient later developed complications including a hernia. The doctors did not prepare a mandatory post-operative report following the second surgical procedure. The patient's lawsuit alleged that the doctor was negligent. The Baltimore jury disagreed and found in favor of the defendant doctor. The claims made in this medical malpractice lawsuit were for negligence and loss of consortium. Suit was filed on June 25, 2007 and the verdict came in on November 25, 2008.

This case shows that surgical medical malpractice cases are difficult to win. By the time they go to trial, it is typically one expert saying the surgeon was negligent and breached the standard of care, and the other expert saying that the surgeon complied with the standard of care and that the damages are simply and adverse consequence of surgery (not all surgeries go well, even when procedures are done perfectly). Our law firm handles and reviews surgical malpractice cases and have had particular success handling cases involving gastric bypass surgery that is done wrong and/or performed on inappropriate candidates. If you or a loved one had a surgical procedure that did not go well and that resulted in serious injury or death, call us so that our Maryland attorneys and/or trained nurse attorneys can review the facts and determine if the bad result was the result of a medical error.

Fractured Femur Verdicts and Settlements

Metro Verdicts Monthly just published the median verdicts and settlements involving fractured femurs in Maryland ($75,000.00), the District of Columbia ($250,000.00) and Virginia ($187,500). These statistics are based on cases set forth in Metro Verdicts Monthly since 1987. In August, 2008 GFM partner Christian Mester settled a case for $455,000 on behalf of a Maryland man who suffered a fractured femur. While each case is different, and the results of any particular case depends on the facts, we are proud of the fact that our firm obtained a settlement of that is over 6 times the published median settlement amount for Maryland fractured femur cases. Quite often, the settlement value of the case depends on the strength of the liability against the defendant, the venue in which the case is pending (cases in Prince George's County and Baltimore City, Maryland are worth more than cases in Montgomery County and Anne Arundel County, Maryland), and the impact that the fractured femur will have on the claimant. If you or someone you love suffers a fractured femur as a result of a car accident, medical malpractice or the negligence of another person or corporation, we would be glad to discuss how we can help you. We believe that fractured femur lawsuits are significant because the femur is known to be amongst the biggest and strongest bones in the human anatomy. The femur is essentially the thigh bone and it extends from a person's hip to their knee joint. It generally takes a very significant impact to fracture the femur and such fractures are often caused by high impact car accidents, tractor trailer accidents, falls from heights and work related injuries. Individuals with osteoarthritis or weak bones are subject to femur fractures at lower thresholds than those with normal healthy and strong bones. If you or someone you love suffered a femur fracture call us at 301-589-2999 x102 or toll free at 888-213-8140. Our Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers generally handle femur fracture cases on a contingency fee basis which means that there is no attorney fee if there is no recovery in the lawsuit.

Serious Injuries As a Result of Washington DC School Bus Crash

Yesterday there was a Washington DC bus accident in the District of Columbia involving a D.C. school bus and a sports utility vehicle. Fortunately, there were only 3 or 4 people on the school bus at the time of the impact. The car accident occurred in the Southeast(SE) quadrant of Washington, D.C. As a result of the crash, four people were sent to the hospital and at least two people had serious injuries.

The school bus accident occurred at 28th Street and Pennsylvania Ave. SE when a Cadillac Escalade collided with the bus. The school bus driver was seriously injured in the crash as well. We certainly hope that those injured in this accident have a speedy recovery. If they intend to seek compensation for their injuries, they should act quickly.

At this time it is unclear to me whether the impact was due to the negligence of the SUV driver or the school bus driver, or both. If the accident was the due solely to the negligence of the SUV driver, there may be inadequate insurance coverage for all of those injured to be fairly compensated.

In that case, those injured may need to make timely uninsured motorist claims against their own car insurance policies. If the accident is due to the negligence of the school bus driver, then those making claims must put the D.C. Government on Notice pursuant to Section 12-309 of the D.C. Code within 180 days of the accident. If this is not done, or if it is not done properly or timely, claims against the bus driver and the D.C. Government will be barred forever by the doctrine of sovereign immunity.

It is very important that those involved in accidents with government vehicles seek legal representation promptly so that notice requirements (which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction) can be complied with. The general statute of limitations for bringing negligence claims in Washington, D.C., and Maryland is 3 years from the date of the injury. However, notice requirements for claims against governmental entities generally allow for only 6 months to comply.

Terrible Car Accident in Aspen Hill, Maryland Injures Child And her Mother in Montgomery County Maryland

There was a terrible accident in Aspen Hill, Maryland which is in Montgomery County near our law office in Silver Spring. Ms. Cristina L. Dodd who is from Silver Spring, MD, was walking with her 13 year old daughter Natalia Jallorina of Rockville, Maryland.

The two ladies were struck as pedestrians as they were crossing the street at Bel Pre Road at Connecticut Avenue. The vehicle that struck them fled the scene of the accident. Ms. Dodd and Ms. Jallorina were taken to the hospital for treatment of their injuries from the Maryland car accident. Ms. Dodd was taken to Suburban Hospital, a trauma facility, in Bethesda, Maryland. Mr. Jallorina was taken to Children s Hospital in Washington, D.C.

The police later recovered a Ford Mustang that they believe was involved in the accident. If you know anything about the person driving the Mustang and/or who caused this crash, you should call the Montgomery County Police and provide them with the information. We certainly hope that Ms. Jallorina and her daughter recover from their injuries, and our thoughts and prayers are with them and their family.

If they intend to bring a civil lawsuit regarding this incident, they should strongly consider hiring an attorney now so that the attorney can do a proper fact investigation and help locate the phantom driver. Most Maryland Auto Accident Lawyers would take this case on a contingent fee basis which means that there would be no attorney fee if there is no recovery. In other words, it would not cost the injured people anything to have legal representation until the case resolves with either a financial settlement or a jury verdict resulting in payment (think of it as risk free representation).

The pedestrians obviously have a negligence claim against the driver who struck them. They also may have a valid claim for uninsured motorist benefits (known as UM benefits) against any automobile insurance policies that they have or that their family members have. Ms. Jallorina and her daughter obviously were terribly injured in this crash and they are going to have substantial medical bills and other expenses and damages related to their injuries.

Hopefully the negligent driver responsible for this terrible incident will be located, arrested and brought to justice.

Terrible Maryland Car Accident in Charles County

Car accidents kill thousands of Americans and hundreds of residents in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. and the District of Columbia each year. Unfortunately, there was another terrible crash yesterday in Waldorf, Maryland. One person was killed (the car's passenger) and the vehicle's driver was injured. The car involved in the accident crashed into a tree and utility pole according to the Waldorf police department. The car crash occurred on Bryantown Road.

The passenger in the vehicle, Christopher J. Wright was ejected from the vehicle and died as a result of the impact. Mr. White was from La Plata, Maryland. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Mr. White and his family. Mr. White was only 26 years old. The driver of the vehicle, Frank R. Jones, age 20, from Waldorf, MD, was taken to Prince George's County Hospital. The police are still investigating the cause of the crash. When there is a tragic accident like this, there are numerous causes of action that need to be considered. These include: (i) negligence against the driver of the vehicle, (ii) negligence against any other drivers that may have been involved, (iii) whether the roadway design was a cause of the accident (if so, negligence case against the County or State of Maryland), (iv) uninsured motorist claims, (v) and product liability claims against the car manufacturer if a design defect or manufacturing defect was a cause of the crash.

Also, was the motor vehicle crashworthy? It is very important that families of those injured in catastrophic accidents hire an attorney or investigator right away so that witnesses can be identified, evidence preserved, and information obtained to maximize the recovery for the family. Our experienced Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers at Goldberg, Finnegan & Mester, LLC we do not charge an attorney fee unless there is a recovery and we advance the costs for the initial fact investigation.

For more information about the various causes of action that should be considered after a tragic car accident involving injury or death, consider reading Kevin I. Goldberg's Article that was published in Trial Reporter Magazine, Journal of the Maryland Trial Lawyer's Association, Summer 2008 "Not So Fast...Don't Accept A Low Policy Limits Settlement Offer For Your Catastrophically-Injured Client" (http://www.gfmlawllc.com/pdf/summer_article_2008.pdf).

Unfortunate Car Accident in Montgomery County Maryland

Montgomery County, Maryland police have reported that an 18 year old Rockville, MD woman, Ngoc Xuan Thi Lai, died as a result of a recent Maryland car crash. The auto accident happened near White Flint Mall in Rockville, MD on Rockville Pike. A Honda was heading north when it hit the median while trying to avoid a black Nissan vehicle which might have a spoiler, tinted windows and Maryland license plates. The passenger in the Honda included Rodnee Ganio is also from Rockville. This is a very unfortunate automobile accident, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Lai and anyone else injured in the car crash. Montgomery County Maryland Police have asked that anyone with information about the Nissan that may have been involved call 301-840-2435. Those injured in the crash were treated at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.

Maryland Tort Law It's Not As Bad As It Seems For Personal Injury Lawyers

Many Maryland personal injury lawyers and car accident lawyers complain that Maryland is a difficult jurisdiction to practice in because of several tort reform measures we have. Our law firm believes that Maryland is a great place to practice personal injury law, and we know how to navigate its challenges. The ugliest part of the story is that Maryland has pure contributory negligence. That means that if our client (the plaintiff) is found by the jury or judge to be even 1% at fault for the accident, even if the defendant tortfeasor is 99% at fault, then our client is barred from recovery. This is harsh, and unfair, and only about 4 states in the entire country have this law on the books (unfortunately, Virginia and Washington, D.C. also have pure contributory negligence). Even in basic rear end accidents where liability of the defendant is clear, defense attorneys often will argue that the plaintiff is 1% at fault and therefore barred from recovery if, for example, they stopped too suddenly. Usually juries see through this trial tactic. The good news is that Maryland has joint and several liability. This means that if there are multiple negligent parties,each party is responsible for the full amount of any judgment. Many states do not have joint and several liability, and in those states, each wrongdoer is only responsible for their proportionate share of the damages.

Another disappointing aspect of Maryland law is that we have a cap on non-economic damages (pain, suffering, disfigurement, grief). We believe that the cap on non-economic damages is unfair--especially to women and the elderly who are less likely to have substantial economic losses. The cap varies depending on whether it is a medical malpractice case or a personal injury case (auto accident, slip and fall, truck accident). The good news is that there is no cap at all on economic damages (medical bills, lost wages, etc.). Therefore, cases where there is a large life care plan for future economic losses are extremely valuable in Maryland. Examples of these cases are cerebral palsy cases, brain damaged baby cases, brachial plexus cases, truck accident cases, and other cases involving catastrophic injury.

Another challenge in Maryland is that there are certain counties which are notorious for having low and unfair jury verdicts. Such counties include Montgomery County (Rockville), Maryland, Howard County, Maryland (Columbia, MD), Cecil County, MD, and counties on the Eastern Shore such as Wicomico County (Salisbury), Dorchester County. Other jurisdictions have better jury verdicts. We believe that the best jury verdicts come out of Baltimore City, Maryland and Prince George's County, Maryland (Upper Marlboro). Unfortunately, sometimes we are forced to litigate cases in conservative jurisdictions. The good news is that our lawyers have had great success in some of these more conservative jurisdictions--particularly in Montgomery County, Maryland. Kevin Goldberg grew up in Montgomery County and went to Wootton High School. Kevin Finnegan lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland and is also a resident of Montgomery County. Thomas (Tad) Farrington lives in Silver Spring, MD which is also in Montgomery County. The bottom line is that if you have a Montgomery County personal injury case or medical malpractice case, we believe that our attorneys are well equipped to get a great result there.

Another good aspect of Maryland law is that we have the collateral source rule. This means that a negligent party is responsible for the full value of the plaintiff's damages even if the plaintiff received partial compensation from his own insurance or others goodwill. For example, if a medical bill is $1,000.00 and the plaintiff's health insurance paid $500.00, the defendant would owe the entire $1,000.00 bill. By the same token a plaintiff is entitled to all o their lost wages for time missed from work even if they got paid through sick leave. The policy behind this is that a negligent party is not permitted to benefit from insurance policies or credits (e.g sick leave) earned by the claimant. Some jurisdictions do not have the collateral source rule.

The bottom line is that Maryland is a great place to practice law. Our Maryland lawyers are top notch, and we fight hard to get our clients the best possible results. We know how to navigate the tricky waters of contributory negligence. If you are involved in an accident in Maryland and are injured, our law firm will do everything possible to get you the justice that you deserve. We will protect your rights.

Maryland Fender Bender

Detroit is a long way from the East Coast, but the ongoing debate over an auto industry bailout that may affect that city is raging all through Maryland and DC. This is, in a way, a kind of Maryland car accident, for certain, but not the kind that we might usually think of, nor is it the kind that affects thousands across the state each year.

For those citizens, such an accident means the potential for property damage, physical injury, and, at the very least, the psychological trauma of such an encounter. This last point is well-supported by research: Maryland car accidents, even the most minor, carry with them a psychological import often overlooked. Too often, we attend only to the physical damage - to people, and to vehicles - looking to dollar signs and decimal points to assess the impact of a collision. But anyone who has been involved in an accident will tell you differently - long after the physical damage has been righted, the psychological scars remain.

This may be especially true of minor incidents - fender benders and the like. Here there may be only minor physical damage to the vehicles, seemingly no reason to contact a Washington DC personal injury lawyer. But many drivers find that as time passes, the incident does not fade - either because physical damage to the vehicle is noticed, physical damage to the body - perhaps initially unnoticed - shows itself, or the lingering psychological effects of the collision remain as strong as ever. This last sign may be nightmares, daydreaming and distraction, conscious or unconscious aversion to driving, or any number of other problems. Is this any less of a personal injury than whiplash?

These reasons, and so many others, make it clear that contacting a Maryland car accident attorney immediately after a motor vehicle accident is crucial. By the time the worst of the damage of a minor collision begins to show itself, it may be too late for much chance of litigating a successful case.

It is easy to forget that part of the reason for hiring a Baltimore personal injury lawyer is the decision to litigate or not. Most of us are lucky enough to not need an attorney more than once or twice in our lives, and it seems that simply making contact is the start of a suit. However, this is not the case. Take advantage of the opportunity for a free case evaluation; seek an objective and expert opinion to assist in evaluating the prospects of your case.

What is there to lose?

Maryland Slip and Fall Case Involving Injury On Black Ice

Our law firm handles Maryland slip and fall cases (also known as premises liability cases) involving very serious and catastrophic injuries, and we therefore do our best to stay on top of the law in that particular practice area. The Maryland Court of Special Appeals in Annapolis, Maryland (Judge Moylan) recently issued a disappointing opinion (filed December 8, 2008) affirming the Circuit Court for Montgomery County's (Judge Rubin) grant of summary judgment in favor of the Defendants (Marriott, Residence Inn and Brickman Group). The name of the case is Allen v. Marriott Worldwide Corporation, et. al. The trial court granted summary judgment based on the affirmative defense of assumption of risk. The case involved a slip and fall on black ice that could not be seen by the plaintiff at a Residence Inn (owned by Marriott Corporation) in Ellicott City, Maryland (Howard County). On February 5, 2004 Mr. Allen stepped off the curb to get into the car his wife was driving when he fell on a patch of black ice that he could not see. The Court of Special Appeals found that the plaintiff (a customer of the hotel--in legal jargon an "invitee") had assumed the risk of injury as a matter of law because under the facts of this case, the plaintiff knew that it was cold outside, was aware of the possibility of black ice, and he knew that parts of the parking lot were slippery for driving in the days leading up to his fall.

The Maryland Court of Special Appeals decided that as a matter of law (not a matter of fact which would be for the jury to decide) the "bits and pieces of information about the appellant's risk came together, they were enough, objectively, to achieve critical mass." The Court of Special Appeals affirmed the trial Court's grant of Summary Judgment in favor of the defendants. The defense of assumption of the risk is essentially that When a plaintiff enters voluntarily into a relation or situation involving obvious danger, he may be taken to assume the risk, and to relive the defendant of responsibility.

I disagree with this holding and think it is extremely unfair to bar an innocent plaintiff from having his day in Court when he could not see the danger that he was confronted with (in this case, "black ice"). The Court essentially found that because the plaintiff was aware of the possibility of a dangerous condition (the possibility of slippery black ice), he has assumed the risk as a matter of law and is not even entitled to his day in Court. The Court explained that "When the issue is that of the assumption of the risk, moreover, any question about the negligence of the defendant becomes utterly immaterial."Court opinions like this one shift the burden of creating a safe environment from the business owners to the consumers and users of the business/premises. This makes for bad policy, and will certainly lead to more accidents and greater Medical Expenses for the Citizens of the State of Maryland. If businesses are not legally responsible for damages caused as a result of dangerous conditions that they create for their customers (aka invitees), then they will not take reasonable measures to have a safe environment. Marriott had a legal responsibility to keep its parking lot free of slippery ice, and it clearly did so in this case. It should have inspected for black ice and unseen dangers, and treated the property with salt/sand/chemicals and removed the ice in a timely matter. A jury should have been permitted to decide whether or not Mr. Allen should be entitled to compensation from the Defendants. The issue of whether Mr. Allen assumed the risk of his injuries, along with whether the defendants were negligent, should have been decided by the jury --the finder of fact--rather than by the Court--as a matter of law.

Death of 39 Year Old D.C. Resident Likely The Result of Paramedic Negligence

Edward Givens, age 39 died at his home in Washington, DC. He was having chest pain and had his family call an ambulance. When the ambulance workers arrived, they told his family that he was most likely simply suffering from acid reflux or indigestion and told him to take an antacid. The paramedics EMT workers left without taking him to the hospital, and without allowing a medical doctor or cardiologist to evaluate him. Shortly after they left, he died of a heart attack.

His family needs to act quickly and put the D.C. Government on notice of their intent to bring a legal claim against the government. They only have 180 days to do this under Section 12-309 of the D.C. Code. Negligence claims against the D.C. government are not capped. This unfortunate incident should not have happened. Possible causes of action include negligence, medical malpractice, wrongful death and survival. Our law firm has a team of Washington D.C. and Maryland medical malpractice lawyers trained to evaluate cases like this. For example, Jean Jones is an attorney and a Registered Nurse.

Lawsuit Against ExxonMobil Continues in Baltimore County, Maryland

There is an interesting trial going on in Baltimore County, Maryland (Circuit Court for Baltimore County) involving a massive gasoline leak at a local Exxon gas station that occurred in 2006. The Plaintiffs are a group of about 300 homeowners in Jacksonville, MD. Families received bottled water from Exxon after the leak and some continue to have to drink only bottled water because of well water contamination. They sued ExxonMobil Corp. and other Defendants for leaking MTBE and possibly other contaminants into their well water. They claim that as a result of the spill at the local gas station, their home values have declined, their sense of security and well-being in their homes and enjoyment of their homes have been destroyed. Some have testified regarding their fear and anxiety about health issues and even cancer as a result of the contamination.

Exxon's defense seems to be that the MTBE levels found in the families wells was below the 20 parts per billion (ppb) considered actionable by the Maryland Department of the Environment. However, the Plaintiffs are quick to point out that if there is pollution in the water, there is pollution in the water. The plaintiff attorneys are excellent trial lawyers. Yale Spector, Michael Snyder, Bob Welcheck, and Steve Snyder are representing the Plaintiffs, and they are all members of the Maryland Association for Justice (formerly Maryland Trial Lawyer's Association); an Organization that Kevin Goldberg will be president of in 2009. When corporations and gas stations cause harm to homes, ground-water, well water and the environment, citizen home owners have a right to seek compensation from the environmental polluters for the damage to their home values, their loss of peace of mind, and of course, for any health problems caused by the pollution. Possible causes of action in environmental negligence cases include: Negligence, Nuisance, and Trespass.

The Maryland Department of the Environment's website has a lot of information about water contamination in Maryland.

Hopefully, the Baltimore jury hearing the evidence in the case against ExxonMobil will return a verdict that will hold ExxonMobil responsible for the damage it negligently inflicted on this Baltimore community.

Washington DC Slip and Fall attorneys

It's getting to be that magical time of year again, all across Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. The snow falls, the ice spreads, and the hazards grow. We all know that a slip and fall accident is all too easy - one wrong step and even the most nimble Holiday shopper is flat on his/her back, wondering which way is up.

We've all taken such spills. It comes with the territory of winters in Virginia or Maryland. Rather than a spring in the step and a twinkle in the eye, the holiday season in these parts is more likely to put caution in the steps and a squint of concentration in the eyes.

Not every slip and fall is grounds for a lawsuit. Each of us has a sense of this, and seem to somehow know, even when flat on our back right after a wipeout, whether we are responsible for this accident. Just as we all recognize that the irresponsible driver weaving in and out of traffic during a blizzard bears responsibility for any accident that might follow, each of us is expected to walk and behave cautiously during these winter months.

And yet, everywhere we might go, especially business and residential districts, is owned by someone, and that someone bears responsibility as well, to maximize safety and minimize the chances of a Washington DC slip and fall accident. So where do these responsibilities meet? Where does the individual's responsibility to behave cautiously end and the property owner's responsibility to ensure safety begin? These are matters for a Maryland personal injury lawyer.

Trust your instincts. If you've been involved in a slip and fall accident and have a sneaking (or strong) suspicion that the premises where you've fallen should have been better cleared, salted, marked, lighted, or otherwise maintained, contact our Maryland Slip and Fall Lawyers for a Free Case Evaluation now to get free consultation on your case.
