How Will An Attorney Help With This Case?

Medical malpractice cases are more complex than other types of personal injury cases. Most individuals do not have the resources or experience to properly pursue a case on their own, particularly when recovering from their injuries. Your attorney will:

  • Obtain all of the evidence necessary to show that a medical mistake took place and caused you harm.
  • Have your medical records examined by trusted healthcare professionals and experts who can testify on your behalf.
  • Handle all communication with the other parties involved, including negotiations over what a fair settlement should look like.

Medical Mistakes Can Be Devastating

When a medical professional makes a mistake, that mistake can have a range of consequences for the patient. Medical mistakes often lead to longer hospitalizations and added costs to a person’s overall care. In some cases, a patient is permanently disabled or killed due to a medical error.

Johns Hopkins researchers say that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the country, killing as many as 250,000 people each year.

Medical mistakes are not made only by doctors and nurses. They can also be made by any other professional that has a duty to uphold a standard of care for patients, including dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, EMS professionals, pharmacists, and more. Some of the most common medical mistakes encountered include:

  • Surgical mistakes
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to treat
  • Medication errors
  • Birth injuries
  • Healthcare-acquired infections

Our team is ready to help those affected by medical mistakes throughout the county, including Lakewood, Toms River, Brick, Jackson, Manchester, Berkeley, Lacey Township, Stafford Township, and more.
