Medical Malpractice Causes Devastating Injuries
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 and correctly interpret the results of those tests, and provide proper treatment. If you are injured because a doctor failed to meet the appropriate standard of medical care, you may be entitled to compensation.
I’m Robert A. Jones, an experienced medical malpractice lawyer in Livingston. I have been helping people injured by medical malpractice for more than 35 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. Before opening my own law office, I was an attorney with a firm that focused on medical malpractice cases. You can rely on my experience with these challenging cases.
What Does it Take to Pursue Medical Malpractice Cases?
Medical injuries often happen because a doctor or hospital failed to do something they are supposed to do. Some examples of medical malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose cancer or other illness
- Failure to properly administrate anesthesia
- Surgical mistakes, such as leaving a foreign object inside a patient
- Medication errors
- Emergency room errors
- Labor and delivery injuries, such as brain damage or shoulder dystocia leading to Erb’s palsy
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 am Certified as a Civil Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. I have the experience and the financial resources to handle these difficult cases.
