HOW MUCH IS MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE WORTH? The good Samaritan.
Many Baltimore personal injury lawyers routinely handle cases where it is alleges that a health care provide deviated from the applicable standard of conduct, and that deviation caused injury to the patient. Experienced Baltimore personal injury lawyers know, however that most professional health care providers are immune from civil liability for the negligent provision of medical care if 1] they were not grossly negligent 2] the medical care was free 3] the care was provided at the scene of an emergency or in route to the hospital. Knowledgeable Baltimore personal injury lawyers also know that a layperson is also immune from civil liability for the negligent provision of assistance if they acted quickly, were not compensated, and relinquished care of the injured person promptly to a health care professional.
