If you believe that your doctor or hospital made a mistake that caused you harm, you may be able to seek compensation. Not every bad outcome is the result of malpractice, but all too often doctors and hospitals make mistakes. In fact, literally hundreds of thousands of patients die every year in the U.S. as a result of malpractice.
Common cases of malpractice include a failure to diagnose cancer, surgical errors, or incorrect diagnosis or treatment. Most doctors are conscientious and do their best to treat their patients, but there are some incredibly incompetent doctors and some hospitals that are just plain bad. Many times, the bad doctors are sued repeatedly, just like the bad hospitals.
In order to win a medical malpractice case you have to prove that the doctor made a mistake, often called “deviating from the standard of care”, which was the cause of your injury or problem. In order to do that, the law in New Jersey requires you to obtain an affidavit of merit from a doctor in the same field at the start of the case.
