January Baltimore Area Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Statistics

By Byron Warnken, on February 18, 2015

In total, there were only 19 medical malpractice lawsuits filed in the greater Baltimore area in January.  This includes Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Carroll County, Howard County, Harford County, and Anne Arundel County.  (Note: this means suits labeled medical malpractice; if the suits were mislabeled, they would not be listed here.)

Only 19 Lawsuits

Of the January medical malpractice lawsuits, a full six of them have different case numbers but various combinations of the same two attorneys (Paul Vettori and Glenn Mintzer) and the same defendants.  It appears this is another stent case involving cardiologists.  Putting those suits together, there were only fourteen different med mal lawsuits in the aforementioned counties.  Of the fourteen suits, only twelve different plaintiffs’ lawyers had their name attached to a lawsuit.

Jon Schochor was the attorney on six of the fourteen lawsuits.  Forget Florida, this guy wants to work!  Scott Kurlander was co-counsel on two of the suits, James Cardea on another two.  Those medical malpractice lawsuits were filed in Carroll County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, and Anne Arundel County.

January’s Medical Malpractice Defendants

Hospitals sued among the fourteen suits included St. Joe’s (now part of University even though the lawsuits might not be), Johns Hopkins, Hopkins Bayview, and Baltimore Washington Medical Center.

Among other defendants included cardiologists Drs. Wang and Mastali, Kaiser, Dr. Amandeep Singh, Dr. Robert Hoofnagle, Advanced Radiology, and Concentra.

That’s the quick run down on January’s medical malpractice lawsuits.  Later this week we will review the workers’ compensation appeals around the Baltimore area.
