Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Against Mercy

The most common kind of lawsuit against Mercy is the medical malpractice lawsuit.  The most common jurisdiction for suits against Mercy is Baltimore City, though the city is not the only place Mercy is sued.  They have also been sued in Baltimore County, which makes no sense.  Mercy is most commonly sued under the name Mercy Medical Center.  Mercy has also been sued as “Mercy Hospital” and “Mercy Health Services, Inc.”

You will see in the graphs below that the most common result in med mal lawsuits against Mercy is a dismissal.  This does not necessarily mean the victim did not receive compensation.  Many cases that are settled would produce this result.  That said, medical malpractice lawsuits always have a high bar.  Attorneys do not simply take any malpractice case that walks in the door.  In fact, the vast majority of what a client perceives as med mal does not result in a lawsuit.  Cases are very expensive to bring, and, therefore, nearly all good med mal attorneys are going to require the case have substantial permanent injury in order to move forward with representation.
