What is Medical Malpractice?

In New Jersey, medical malpractice and medical negligence are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they do have distinct meanings. Both relate to a healthcare professional’s deviation from the standard of care, but their implications differ.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice in New Jersey is defined as a breach of the standard of care that directly results in injury or death to a patient. This breach could arise from an act or omission during treatment. It’s not just about a poor outcome; it’s about a failure to deliver care in line with accepted standards which leads to harm. New Jersey law requires expert testimony to substantiate a medical malpractice claim, proving that the healthcare professional’s conduct was not in line with the accepted standards of practice.

Medical Negligence

Medical negligence, on the other hand, refers to a mistake or oversight that didn’t meet the standard of care but wasn’t necessarily due to a deliberate action. In essence, it’s carelessness. While it can also result in patient harm, proving medical negligence does not necessarily require the intent to harm, but rather a lapse in the level of care provided.

Both medical malpractice and medical negligence can have serious, life-altering consequences and deserve the same level of care and attention. However, in New Jersey, the law recognizes these distinctions, establishing the criteria for proving both malpractice and negligence and setting forth the procedural rules for filing a lawsuit. Whether you believe you’ve been a victim of malpractice or negligence, it’s essential to have an attorney well-versed in New Jersey law to guide you and ensure your rights are protected.

Common injuries in medical malpractice claims include:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Surgical errors

  • Failure to treat

Compensation in New Jersey Med Mal

How Much Is My Medical Malpractice Case Worth?

Medical malpractice cases can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating for victims. New Jersey recognizes the profound impact such negligence can have on an individual’s life. Consequently, victims are entitled to seek compensation to address the harm they’ve experienced. Your medical malpractice attorney can help you pursue compensation for a range of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Assistive devices and equipment
  • Lost income and future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Disfigurement
  • Permanent disability
  • Home modification costs
  • Counseling and therapy fees
  • Funeral and burial expenses (in wrongful death cases)

Should I Accept a Settlement From the Insurance Company?

Before you accept a settlement offer, consider that insurance companies, with their vast resources and experienced legal teams, often employ strategies designed to minimize the amount they pay out. If you’re not prepared, these tactics can be overwhelming and may lead you to accept a settlement far below what your claim is truly worth.

Our skilled New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers at TopDog Law understand the strategies and tactics that insurance companies use. We’ll actively represent your interests, ensuring that the insurance company treats your claim fairly, and scrutinize every detail of the involved insurance policies to ensure you get every dollar you deserve. With TopDog Law by your side, you can focus on your recovery, knowing that we’re tirelessly working to ensure the insurance company honors its obligations and provides you with the compensation you rightfully deserve.
