Medical Malpractice

During a medical procedure doctors and surgeons are trusted to make very difficult snap decisions. Often split-second choices are the difference between successful treatment/surgery and devastating injury or illness due to medical malpractice.

If a medical procedure goes awry because of a doctor’s negligence, the injured party should, without a doubt, be compensated. Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates (SZA) is a two-lawyer boutique firm that hand selects Maryland medical malpractice matters that have legitimate issues. Many injury lawyers and law firms are criticized and called “ambulance chasers,” for taking any and every case that presents itself. Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates, on the other hand, prides itself on fighting zealously for any person wronged in the eyes of the law. “Service, service, service,” is the Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates credo and part of our service is to screen each case thoroughly to insure that some negligence exists before we proceed. Aside from analyzing cases stemming from mistakes made by the treating physicians, serious physical injuries also result from:

  • hospital errors
  • surgical errors
  • anesthesia errors
  • prescription/medication errors



Determining whether medical treatment negligence has occurred requires experienced Maryland medical malpractice attorneys and often times requires qualified experts. Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates has established a team of medical experts who work in conjunction with our two lawyers (with over a decade of combined experience handling Maryland Medical Malpractice cases). Clearly, every medical mistake does not result in a medical malpractice lawsuit. However, if you suspect a mistake or error has caused you or a loved one some injury, you can and should schedule an immediate free consultation. Not only will you be provided with some answer to your ability to be compensated, but you will receive the personal, zealous, and compassionate representation you need in order to focus on what is truly important – your recovery!

Remember, there are no fees if no recovery. Every claim for medical malpractice has a statute of limitations within which a lawsuit must be filed. Don’t let time run out on your claim. Contact Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates (SZA) TODAY!

Maryland Medical Misdiagnosis Lawsuits

A Maryland doctor’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a medical condition can have disastrous effects. The most common medical mistakes include the misdiagnosis of symptoms, the failure to diagnose a condition, and the improper prescription of medication. When warning signs or symptoms of an illness or medical condition are present, it is imperative that a doctor promptly recognize those symptoms and make a PROMPT AND CORRECT diagnosis.

At Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates, with the help of qualified national medical experts, we review potential misdiagnosis lawsuits at NO COST TO YOU.

A delay in diagnosis or misdiagnosis of a medical condition can prevent a patient from seeking necessary diagnostic testing and may significantly impact recovery time. This is especially true in cases of cancer cases or other such conditions where early treatment is of paramount importance.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits For Diagnosis Errors

Doctors can be overworked the same way as workers in any field. However, a loss of focus or attention to a patient in the medical field can be a literal matter of life or death. If a doctor fails to recognize or appreciate the complaints of his or her patient, the results can be life changing. If injuries resulting from a misdiagnosis could have been prevented, the patient or the patient’s family should not be forced to bear the burden alone. The patient, you, should be compensated!

At Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates we have over a decade of combined experience helping the injured get the compensation they deserve. We can review the circumstances surrounding the medical treatment with our experts to determine if you and your loved ones may be entitled to compensation. If you have a claim, we have the combination of resources and compassion to fight for your compensation while you focus on what is truly important – your family and your recovery.

Again, there is NO FEE IF NO RECOVERY. Every claim for medical malpractice has a statute of limitations within which the lawsuit must be filed. Time may be running out on your claim, so contact Shapiro Zwanetz & Associates (SZA) TODAY for a FREE CONSULTATION!
