Medical malpractice is an especially sensitive subject these days. We all want to trust our doctors and most of the time they have earned that trust. There are situations where careless medical mistakes and medical negligence do occur and the law recognizes your right to pursue the responsible doctor or health care provider for your damages. We don’t take these cases lightly. We don’t want to sue a doctor unless the case has merit.
If you, a loved one or a friend have been injured by a doctor or other health care provider, we can help protect your rights. We will want you to bring in as much information as possible. Complete doctor files, complete hospital records, and actual diagnostic films and other studies are essential to a good evaluation of your case. In most cases, an independent doctor is required to give an opinion as to whether a treating physician provided less care than you deserved. New Jersey law requires that this independent doctor provide an affidavit of merit to the Court. Medical malpractice cases, by definition, are very costly to bring.
Over the years, we have represented people injured in different types of malpractice, including those involving:
- Emergency room errors
- Surgical errors
- Failure to adequately diagnose medical conditions
- Failure to obtain informed consent
- Negligently performed surgeries
We can handle your case on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that you do not pay a legal fee unless we obtain a settlement or a jury verdict.
