Since the Maryland General Assembly adopted the Health Care Malpractice Claims Statute, that law has come under repeated attack in the courts and in legal and medical circles. This article traces the social backdrop against which the Assembly promulgated the statute and outlines the provisions of the new claims procedure. After describing the challenges the statute has already overcome, the author discusses the effectiveness of the procedure for resolving malpractice claims against health care providers in Maryland.
