Hospital negligence cases can be quite complex and difficult to litigate. In order for a claim to be successful, one must prove that the New Jersey hospital or its staff acted unreasonably, and that these careless or negligent actions directly caused the injuries or death.
At Cuneo & Leonetti, we work in cooperation with medical expert witnesses who assist us in gathering and evaluating the medical evidence in order to establish that an accepted standard level of care was violated.
Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to administer the accepted standard of care to a patient, causing an injury or death. A standard of care is defined as the care that another reasonably competent medical provider would dispense under the same or similar situation.
If you put your trust in a medical professional who then injured you or made your condition worse by failing to diagnose a serious condition, or by acting negligently in another way, you may not only feel betrayed, but also conflicted about initiating a lawsuit. But a lawsuit may represent your best chance to secure the compensation you need to help pay for necessary medical treatment, lost wages and other costs arising from your injury.
Medication errors, negligence in the delivery room, surgical mistakes or a failure to obtain informed consent are also forms of medical negligence. If you have questions about an adverse medical event that happened to you or a loved one, schedule an appointment to talk to us about what happened.
