Medical Malpractice Lawsuits & Settlements in NJ
Initiating a NJ Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
Deciding how and whether to initiate an New Jersey medical malpractice suit is the most challenging part of the process for many people. It is uncommon to become a malpractice victim more than once in a lifetime, and the situation is naturally unfamiliar.
Experienced New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys such as those at Legome & Associates are a vital asset in such a turbulent time, providing reliable guidance and earnest compassion when dealing with various types of malpractice claims.
NJ Medical Malpractice Settlement
Filing a medical malpractice claim may seem stressful after suffering an injury in New Jersey. It is impossible to guarantee a dollar amount for any particular NJ injury case settlement or judgment without all of the possible details such as medical bills, emotional impact, the severity of the injury, and the circumstances of the injury. However, our verdicts and settlements page can give you some idea of the level of compensation.
Most cases can settle out of court, but some cases must proceed to trial when the injury settlement offer does not satisfy or fully compensate the accident victim. Tort law is a complex and ever-developing system. An experienced medical malpractice law firm is a vital element for any settlement or lawsuit. Our medical malpractice attorneys evaluate your claim, recommend possible courses of action, negotiate your settlement, and if necessary, take your case to court to get you the compensation you deserve.
Common Malpractice Lawsuits in NJ
There is a plethora of reasons, and types of cases, for which an New Jersey resident might file a malpractice lawsuit. We cannot guarantee that every case is going to result in compensation, or that every case is actionable, but we can provide an experienced medical malpractice attorney to take the details of your case into account and provide customized recommendations. Here are some example situations in NJ that might result in a malpractice lawsuit:
- Birth injuries resulting from improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors, or improper handling of a newborn
- Failure to diagnose cancers for which the symptoms are readily apparent in a timely manner
- Improper medication prescription, resulting in avoidable addiction, overdose, or permanent side effects
- Surgical errors stemming from negligence
These are just a few of many possible complications resulting from the negligence of trusted medical care providers, all of which call for the prompt involvement of a New Jersey attorney with the necessary medical malpractice law suit experience.
