Professional negligence may be described as any breach in the duty of care that professionals owe to their clients. In medicine, this is a breach in the standard of care medical professionals should provide to their patients. This is referred to as medical malpractice and can take on many forms with varied consequences: birth injuries, surgical errors, anesthesia malpractice, emergency room mistakes, medication errors, failures to diagnose, and more.

The standards of professionalism and care in the field of medicine are high, and for good reason. Medical professionals work in a complex field that sometimes deals with life-or-death situations. They are specially educated and trained to be able to administer a standard level of care in diagnosing and treating patients. If they violate this standard, they should be held responsible.

As a Maryland medical malpractice lawyer, Michael Bereston has dedicated his career to exposing negligent conduct by professionals in healthcare and all its subdivisions and specialties. He is here to help you and your family if you have suffered the consequences of medical negligence.
