Did Your Doctor Make a Mistake?

Doctors, surgeons and other health care providers in New Jersey must follow safety guidelines and standards that are intended to ensure that patients are not harmed by substandard care. When these guidelines and standards are not followed and a patient is hurt or killed as a result, that health care professional has likely committed medical malpractice.

Of course, establishing what exactly those guidelines are and proving that malpractice has taken place are much more complicated. An experienced medical malpractice attorney can clearly define the applicable standards in the medical community and illustrate how those standards were violated by the doctor, nurse or other health care provider in question.
