Knowing If I Have a New Jersey Medical Malpractice Case
We’re often asked by folks: “Do I have a Medical Malpractice case?” Many times, this is because they are dissatisfied with an outcome of a medical procedure. They’ve undergone a surgical procedure. It hasn’t come out the way they hoped it would come out and they think that that automatically gives rise to a Medical Malpractice case. That is not so. These are very, very difficult cases and cases that have to involve what we call a deviation from acceptable medical standards in the way the treatment was performed by the doctor. If there had been no deviation and there’s just been an unsuccessful result, even if that result is death, it’s not necessarily a Medical Malpractice case. What our role is, in preparing a case, is to gather as much material as we can, and we have doctors who work with us, and we turn this material over to them – basically, medical records, operative reports. They review these records. They give some opinion as to whether or not there’s been a deviation in medical treatment. If there is, these are doctors who are willing to come to court and testify and stand by with their opinions. If they say, “Yes, there’s been a deviation” and the injuries are substantial enough, then you’re going to have a Medical Malpractice case worth pursuing. Now, again, these are very, very difficult cases with very little margin for error. Those of us who have tried hundreds of cases know that when we handle these cases, we are up against the best lawyers in-charged companies could get their hands on. So, we are meticulous in preparation of these cases and our investigation is the key to the success we’ve had in handling these cases.
