Potomac, Maryland

Potomac is a well-to-do community in Montgomery County, Maryland, home to a number of important medical facilities. These include the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Suburban Hospital in Bethesda (now part of the Johns Hopkins Hospital system), Montgomery General Hospital in Olney, Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Germantown, and Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park. The firm of Patrick Malone & Associates has represented many clients who underwent treatment at these facilities, as well as patients treated in nearby Washington, D.C., including such major hospitals as Washington Hospital Center, Georgetown University Hospital, George Washington University Hospital, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Providence Hospital.

Patients in Montgomery County have a right to expect world-class medical care. When they don't get top quality care, it may be appropriate to investigate the facts carefully to determine if a medical malpractice suit is justified.

The firm of Patrick Malone & Associates represents residents of Potomac in civil lawsuits in the state and federal courts of Maryland - typically in Montgomery County Circuit Court in Rockville, Maryland and the United States District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland. These include medical malpractice lawsuits and other serious and catastrophic personal injuries, including brain injury, spinal cord injuries, birth-related injuries, wrongful death and other life-changing events. We also have significant and frequent experience representing citizens when truck, motorcycle and automobile collisions cause serious permanent injuries.

You can read about two of Patrick Malone's successful lawsuits on behalf of Montgomery County residents on our website. The story of Richard Semsker, whose highly curable skin cancer was allowed to reach a fatal mass because of the combined neglect of his internist and his dermatologist, is told here (with links to important documents about the case). Billy Boone suffered brain damage when an ear-nose-throat surgeon, operating on a benign mass behind his ear, poked a hole into his brain. Our account of Mr. Boone's case focuses on the legal precedent set in Maryland's highest court giving patients a right to know their surgeons' experience (or lack thereof) before they go under the knife. Both cases were tried in Montgomery County Circuit Court.
