Medical Malpractice Lawyer New Jersey
In malpractice lawsuits, the injuries you suffer
are caused by medical professionals. Establishing
medical negligence is done by determining that
the defendants had a duty to perform, they failed
in their duty, and that you suffered as a result
of this.
Examples of Medical Malpractice Include
A physician or other healthcare professional
failing to read test results A surgeon operating
on the wrong body part A physician or other
healthcare professional failing to diagnose an
illness correctly A physician or other
healthcare professional prescribing medications
that dont go together An anesthesiologist
administering too much or too little anesthesia A
physician or other healthcare professional
injuring a baby during delivery A hospital using
contaminated instruments.

What is Medical Malpractice?
We expect medical providers to perform their
duties with a certain level of skill and
professionalism. In other words, we anticipate
that they will provide care that follows the
standards within the medical community. Medical
malpractice is defined as a legal action against
a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, or other medical
professional whose conduct has been alleged to be
negligent. The patient or person who is bringing
the action is called the plaintiff.
1. Poor medical decisions by
providers. 2. Errors in treatment, testing,
or surgery. 3. Failure to diagnose or
properly provide care. 4. Delay of care. 5.
Medical equipment misuse or
failures.

Why Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney?

Everyone makes mistakes. But when doctors,
nurses, therapists, or dentists make them, the
effects can last a lifetime. Patients have a
right to expect that medical procedures will be
properly performed. Medical malpractice attorneys
represent you if you are injured by a healthcare
provider's careless or accidental mistakes. For
example, if a doctor leaves behind gauze in your
body during surgery, resulting in an infected
wound that requires even more surgery, the doctor
committed medical malpractice. Medical
malpractice attorneys can recognize injuries
caused by mistakes they know the most common
mistakes that cause injuries, and they know how
to find and present information useful to prove
your case. Medical malpractice attorneys also
know how much insurance is available if the
health care provider is responsible for what
happened to you.

Special Requirements in Medical Malpractice Cases
Medical malpractice cases must be brought soon
after the injury. In most states, you must bring
a medical malpractice claim fairly quickly --
often between six months and two years, depending
on the state. (The time period in which you must
bring the lawsuit is called the "statute of
limitations.") If you don't file the lawsuit
within the specified period of time, the court
will dismiss the case regardless of the facts.
When the time period starts ticking also depends
on the state. In some states, the clock starts
when the negligent act occurred in others, it
starts when the patient should have discovered
the injury.
