Medical malpractice can cause devastating or fatal injuries and it is more common than doctors or insurance companies would like you to believe. Recent studies reported by the Institute of Medicine found that medical errors are responsible for 98,000 wrongful deaths each year, more than all Americans killed on all U.S. highways. That is where medical malpractice lawyers in NJ can help.
Hundreds of thousands more are injured and disabled because of the medical malpractice of doctors, nurses and hospitals. A recent New England Journal of Medicine study revealed that one of every three doctors says that he or family members have been victims of a preventable medical mistake, and nearly 30 percent of doctors said they had seen a serious medical error in the past year.
When medical malpractice happens, most people think the responsible parties should be held accountable. Unfortunately, accountability in medical malpractice cases in NJ is often the last thing those responsible desire, where injuries or death have occurred from medical negligence. Many professionals today actually teach future doctors and nurses to avoid reporting medical mistakes of others or admit to medical malpractice. As a result, in the absence of aggressive legal representation, many medical malpractice suits from lawyers are buried without the patient treated ever knowing about the mistake, as well as anyone knowing of the people involved in the mistake.
Patients are inherently vulnerable because they have no choice but to trust their healthcare provider or physician with their lives and health. Hospitals, nursing homes and other providers are trusted with the well being of their patients. This is, and should be, the basis for a special provider-patient relationship. There is no place for carelessness or ignorance on the part of healthcare providers, and medical malpractice lawyers in NJ are here to protect you.
Your doctors or medical providers are not going to disclose their medical malpractice to you. If your doctors explain what happened at all, they say they "did the best they could" or that a death was "unavoidable." Maybe. Or maybe not. You owe it to yourself and your family to know for sure.
