A medical mistake can destroy your health, rob you of the chance to beat a fatal disease, and obliterate your trust in doctors and other medical professionals. Medical error is a leading cause of death in the U.S., and errors often go undetected. Even when people know or suspect that medical malpractice has occurred, they rarely take legal action.

Troxler, Esq., and schedule your free initial consultation. Medical malpractice cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, so you only pay attorneys’ fees if and when you get paid.
Why You Need a Medical Malpractice Attorney
If you know or suspect that your injuries were caused by medical negligence, Patrick Troxler can determine if you have a case. A poor medical outcome does not always mean that medical malpractice was involved. Medical negligence occurs when a healthcare professional performs below the accepted standard of care, causing harm to the patient.
Medical malpractice cases are complex. Medical experts are needed to establish that negligence occurred and paint a clear picture to the jury of how the negligence harmed you. Other experts, such as economists, are often involved to establish how the harm will affect you and your family in the years to come. Patrick has a large team of professional support and works with the best medical professionals in Maryland. He is a seasoned trial attorney who will not settle for less than you deserve and will prepare your case to go to full jury trial.
