What is the potential liability in a medical malpractice case in Maryland?

Maryland law allows plaintiffs to recover all of their quantifiable economic expenses such as their medical bills, rehabilitation expenses and loss of income that occurred as a result of the injuries that they sustained because of the medical malpractice of the defendants. The non-economic damages (such as compensation for pain and suffering) are limited to $665,000 in 2009 and will increase by $15,000 on January 1 of each applicable calendar year as defined by statute.
