Maryland’s Top Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Unfortunately, there are several areas of medical malpractice that adults, children, and the elderly fall victim to every day. Medical mistakes happen on every level of medical care, and on every level of severity. Birth injuries such as Cerebral Palsy, brain damage, and Erb’s Palsy affect thousands of infants in the United States. Every day mistakes happen in the emergency room.  A minor medication error can be fatal. At Spector & Kopec, we focus on Medical Malpractice lawsuits to obtain justice for victims of all levels of medical malpractice, from birth injuries and anesthesia errors, to infectious diseases, and wrongful death.  Below there is a sample list of our medical malpractice, and wrongful death practice areas.


The following are questions that we are frequently asked about medical malpractice cases.

What Is Medical Malpractice? Medical malpractice is the failure of a doctor or hospital to treat a patient according to professional standards, and that failure results in injury or death of the patient. Doctors and hospitals have insurance for their errors, just like drivers have car insurance in case they don’t drive carefully and cause an accident.

What Went Wrong? The Doctor Won’t Tell Me. At Spector & Kopec, we hear this question from many clients. Unfortunately, when there is a bad medical outcome, many doctors don’t communicate with patients and their families. The good news is that we can get an answer to this question for you through medical research, review of the medical records, and consultation with expert doctors.

My Family Member Died. Should I Request An Autopsy? Yes! Sometimes an autopsy is required in order to obtain sufficient information to prove a medical malpractice case. There is no reason to not request one. If you are told that you cannot have one or that you have to pay for it, contact Spector & Kopec immediately.

When Do I Have To Sue? The time period to bring a lawsuit is called the statute of limitations. There are different statutes of limitations for different claims. Contact Spector & Kopec today to find out when you have to sue.

What Will This Cost Me? At Spector & Kopec, we advance the expenses of the lawsuit. There is no cost to you unless we get a recovery for you. The initial consultation is free.

Do I Have To Get My Medical Records? Some lawyers will tell you to get your medical records and then call them back. This can be a costly and time consuming process. At Spector & Kopec, we will get your medical records and evaluate your claim.

Maryland Car Accident Lawyers

Every 10 seconds, a car accident victim is treated in an emergency room for car accident related injuries. Nearly 40,000 people die in accidents every year. Auto accidents are the number one killer of people between the ages of 4 to 34. Each year auto accidents kill more people in Maryland than homicides. Over 90% of total crashes are preventable incidents caused by driver error. Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars for victims of car and truck accidents.  If you have lost a loved one due to an auto accident, our wrongful death attorneys can help your family obtain the justice that you deserve.


The following are questions that we are frequently asked about serious car and truck accident cases:

What Compensation Can I Get? Damages can vary depending on the claim, but can include pain and suffering, past medical bills, future medical costs, past lost wages, future lost wages, and property damage.

What Will This Cost Me? At Spector & Kopec, we advance the expenses of the lawsuit. There is no cost to you unless we get a recovery for you. The initial consultation is free.

Is There Anything I Should Do Immediately? Yes, make sure to get the number for any police report,  and the names and contact information for any witnesses.

If The Other Driver’s Insurance Company Calls Me, Should I Speak With Them? No! They will try to get you to say something harmful to your case. We can deal with the insurance company for you.

What If The Other Driver Doesn’t Have Insurance Or Has A Small Policy? In those circumstances, you may be able to pursue what is called an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Claim if you have sufficient coverage under your policy. We can review your policy and advise you of your coverage.

When Do I have To Sue? The time periods can vary. Spector & Kopec can advise you on the period that applies to your case. It is generally better to pursue your claim as soon as possible. This provides the best opportunity for witnesses to be contacted and evidence from the accident to be preserved.
