Livingston, New Jersey, Medical Malpractice Lawyer
While doctors and hospitals cannot guarantee you a successful outcome in every operation or treatment, they do have a responsibility to provide you with medical services that meet the standard of care for your community. For example, you have a right to expect that your doctor will order appropriate tests for conditions such as cancer and correctly interpret the results of those tests. If you are injured because a doctor failed to order proper tests or otherwise failed to meet the standard of medical care, you may be entitled to compensation.
I'm Robert A. Jones, a personal injury and medical malpractice lawyer in Essex County, New Jersey. I have been helping people injured by medical negligence and malpractice for more than 25 years. Unlike many attorneys, I am not afraid to try these cases. In fact, the second case I tried as a lawyer was a medical malpractice case.
Medical injuries often happen because a doctor or hospital failed to do something they are supposed to do. Some examples of medical malpractice are:
- Failure to diagnose cancer or other illness
- Surgical errors, such as leaving a foreign object inside a patient
- Failure to properly administrate anesthesia
- Medication errors
- Emergency room errors
- Birth injuries, such as shoulder dystocia leading to Erb's Palsy or brain damage
Few attorneys handle medical malpractice cases because they require a significant investment of time and money. Doctors and hospitals do not willingly provide records that can result in a costly damage award. These cases also require expert witnesses to prove hospital or doctor negligence. I have the experience and the financial resources to handle these difficult cases. Before opening my own law office, I was an attorney with a firm that focused on medical malpractice cases. I am Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
