Wais, Vogelstein, Forman & Offutt to Lead Sexual Harassment Class-Action Lawsuit in Maryland

Wais, Vogelstein, Forman & Offutt, LLC. (WVFO), in partnership with Spector & Kopec, LLC., announced a class-action lawsuit against a Maryland doctor accused of sexual harassment.

The class-action lawsuit will focus on the behavior of Hugo Benalcazar, MD, a Harford County neurosurgeon whose medical license was suspended after The Maryland Board of Physicians discovered a pattern of sexual harassment against both coworkers and patients that endured for several years.

The Maryland Board of Physicians suspended Dr. Benalcazar’s license in July 2021 after it became aware of behavior including unwanted touching, lewd comments, and smacking an anesthetized patient’s buttocks in the operating room, among other acts, according to the documents filed with the board.

If you or someone you know was a patient or coworker of Dr. Benalcazar, please contact WVFO at 410-567-0800 or visit
