Medical Malpractice Attorneys in NJ
What is medical malpractice?
Medical Malpractice law is a part of the larger body of law known as personal injury law. It is the failure of a medical professional, such as a doctor, hospital, HMO, nurse, emergency room staff, or any other individual or entity licensed to provide medical services, to meet the standard of proper medical practice in the field in which the medical professional practices.
Medical malpractice means that the medical professional did something that a competent medical professional would not have done, often based on negligence, or that the medical professional failed to do something a competent medical professional would have done, and the action or lack of action caused injury or even death to the patient.
