  • Surgical injuries/ surgery mistakes
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Delayed diagnosis/failure to diagnose
  • Misdiagnosis leading to harmful treatment
  • Emergency room malpractice
  • Failure to treat, admit or hold for observation
  • Failure to warn or obtain informed consent
  • Radiology errors
  • Lab errors and miscommunication
  • Medication errors
  • Overprescription of pain meds
  • Infections that are hospital-acquired or fail to be diagnosed
  • Amputations that are preventable
  • Brain injury due to oxygen deprivation
  • Defective medical devices

Our firm has recovered compensation for clients who have suffered injuries or disabilities as a result of the negligence of dentists, gynecologists and obstetricians, general surgeons and orthopedic surgeons, family doctors, radiologists, cardiologists, emergency room physicians, pediatricians and other specialists. We have also held clinics and hospitals accountable for the negligence of nurses, medical technicians and administrators.

Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

We understand that if you were injured by a doctor’s negligence, you probably have a lot of questions. Here, our experienced medical malpractice attorneys answer some of the more commonly asked questions. But every case is unique. If you still have questions, or if you have questions about your case or situation, we offer a free initial consultation where we can answer your specific questions.

What Is medical malpractice?

Medical malpractice, or medical negligence, is a breach of a doctor’s duty of care. It can be an obvious mistake, like a surgeon leaving an instrument inside the patient. It can also be an act of omission, such as the failure of a doctor to take proper precautions or follow through on symptoms or tests. When you are seeking medical treatment, you also have a right to be informed of the risks of any recommended treatments and the availability of alternative forms of treatment. Not every medical mistake is enough to file a claim for medical malpractice. The mistake must have caused you additional harm and damages.

How long do I have to file a medical malpractice claim?

In the state of New Jersey, you have two years to file a claim for medical malpractice. Usually, the time is counted from the day your injury occurred, but not always. An experienced malpractice and medical negligence lawyer can help you understand the filing deadlines.

Who can I sue in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

Every case is different. However, our experienced malpractice attorneys will investigate everyone involved who might be responsible. From the medical provider and health care staff who attended to you to the medical facility, hospital or treatment center where you received your care, in a malpractice investigation, we will identify who breached their duty to take care of you.

How much does it cost to hire a medical malpractice attorney?

Our firm takes hospital negligence and medical malpractice cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that it costs you nothing to have your case reviewed, and you pay attorney fees only if we recover a judgment for you. You can afford the skilled representation you need to secure the compensation you deserve.
