"No fee unless we recover for you"
Serving Southern New Jersey
We trust doctors and other medical personnel with our lives and the well-being of our loved ones. Some reports by these same trusted medical professionals end in tragedy for thousands of patients.
Should you or a family member suffer a serious injury or death as the result of a medical error, protect your rights by consulting an experienced medical malpractice lawyer.
It's not enough that your doctor made some sort of mistake. Before you can file a lawsuit, you have to be able to show that the mistake caused you damage or further harm. The amputation of the wrong limb, brain damage after an operation, a medical condition or disease that got worse after treatment, or even death are good examples of injuries or damage. In short, unless you've been harmed, there's no medical malpractice case.
You also have to prove that the injury is connected to the negligence. This is called "causation," meaning your damage or harm was caused by the doctor's mistake. This may be the most difficult - and expensive - part of any medical malpractice case. As a general rule, you'll need at least one expert witness to explain how the mistake caused your injury. These expert witnesses are almost always other doctors or medical professionals.
Experts are also used to help you show the standard of care that applies to your case and how your doctor breached that standard of care.
