Medical Malpractice Lawyers in South Jersey

Over 65 Years of Combined Legal Experience

The same medical professionals you seek when you need treatments for an injury can be the people who hurt you if they don’t do their jobs correctly. When a medical provider causes their patient’s condition to worsen due to some form of medical negligence or mistake, it is called medical malpractice – and it happens all the time. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), medical malpractice is the third leading cause of preventable death in the country.

What does medical malpractice commonly look like?

  • Failing to diagnose cancer or a serious illness.
  • Diagnosing an ailment as a different one.
  • Prescribing incorrect medication type or dosage.
  • Making a severely ill patient wait too long for treatment.
  • Mixing patient records.
  • Surgery mistakes, like leaving surgical equipment inside a patient.

If you or a loved one got worse after seeing a medical professional and you suspect medical malpractice might be the cause, call (732) 585-1651 and connect with Stolfe Zeigler New Jersey Divorce Group. Our medical malpractice attorneys in South Jersey can evaluate your situation, determine if you have a valid claim, and file it against the correct parties if you do.

How Medical Malpractice Is Determined

Simply going to the doctor and not recovering from your injury or illness is not enough to constitute medical malpractice. After all, illnesses and injuries can be difficult to understand and harder to treat, even with modern medicine. The key to a medical malpractice claim is negligence, as with any other personal injury claim.

There are 4 prerequisites to fill when attempting to prove a malpractice claim:

  1. You had a doctor/patient relationship with a medical professional who caused you harm or who negligently did not prevent further injury or illness.
  2. The physician who treated you made a medical error by acting outside of accepted medical standards.
  3. The medical error caused you to suffer a more severe injury or illness.
  4. The injury or illness resulted in actual damages, such as continued medical bills, suffering, and lost wages.

If all four of these prerequisites can be proven, then your medical malpractice claim will be valid and stand a good chance in a courtroom or during mediation. As your Moorestown medical malpractice lawyers, we will work diligently on your claim and investigating the evidence of medical malpractice. Meanwhile, we just want you to rest and take care of yourself as best you can.
