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.
Medical injuries often happen because a doctor or hospital failed to do something they are supposed to do. Some examples of medical malpractice include:
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.
