    Misdiagnosis

    Intestinal Blood Vessel Blockage

    Ronnie Staggs died while he was an inpatient on the psychiatric ward of Harford Memorial Hospital. His death was caused from a blockage in the vessels supplying blood to his intestines. This condition had been developing over several years.  However, had the proper tests been ordered, it would have been diagnosed in time to save him. Instead, the gastroenterologist responsible for ordering the test, decided to cancel it, and discharge Ronnie to the psych ward- believing his 80 pound weight loss was the result of a mental disorder. Before trial, the Defense advised the Court that the case had "little to no settlement value" and, even if the Plaintiff could somehow win, "a Harford County Jury would award no more than $500,000." The case was tried by Paul D'Amore and Ace McBride, and the jury returned a verdict for Ronnie's widow in excess of $1.67 Million.

    Surgical Error

    All surgery comes with risks, and surgeons are not legally responsible for the known and recognized complications that accompany surgical procedures. This is especially true in gallbladder surgery, where surgeons can nick or cut the tiny tubes leading from the gallbladder to the liver. When this happens it’s called a bile duct injury, and its consequences can be devastating to the patient. In many instances, the “known complications” defense is difficult to overcome. At D’Amore Personal Injury Law, we have been successful in obtaining compensation for patients who have suffered this terrible outcome. In one such instance, Mr. D’Amore secured hundreds of thousands of dollars for a woman who suffered a common bile duct injury during gallbladder surgery.

    Slip and Fall on Black Ice

    Slip and fall cases as a result of “black ice” are incredibly difficult to pursue in Maryland. Defendant landlords and businesses rely upon defenses such as assumption of risk and contributory negligence. In Maryland a slip and fall victim who is determined to be even 1% at fault for their accident is barred from recovery. Scarey right? Not for Attorney Rus Kondratyuk.

    When our client slipped and fell on “black ice" and broke his leg, Attorney Ruslan Kondratyuk accepted the challenge. Mr. Kondratyuk’s detailed and unrelenting search for the truth revealed that negligent surface treatment operations by the defendants had caused the dangerous “black ice” to be present, but not visible. Mr. Kondratyuk also proved that our client was 0% at fault for his accident. This proof convinced the insurance company to fully compensate our client for all of his damages.
