New Jersey medical malpractice law requires the plaintiff to establish that the physician either failed to warn the patient of the risks associated with the medical procedure or that the physician or health care provider’s treatment falls below the accepted standard of practice. In addition to establishing that the physician’s treatment fell below the standard of care, in New Jersey the plaintiff also has the burden to show the physician error caused or substantially contributed to the plaintiff’s injury.

Under New Jersey law, medical malpractice occurs when your doctor or health care provider deviates from the standard of care. This means that medical providers are required to use reasonable care in accordance with an accepted standard of care for that physician or speciality. When a physician, surgeon, hospital or health care provider deviates from the accepted standard of care, then the provider may be responsible for the injuries caused to the patient.
Most physicians and health care providers are dedicated professionals who do good work to help people on the road to recovery. However, mistakes are made that result in a life-changing disabilities to patients.
Medical experts are used to review the case, provide expert review of the case and, when necessary, testify at trial. Many cases settle without the need for a trial when properly prepared. We locate the medical experts whether surgeons, doctors, anesthesiologists and professionals from other medical areas to support your claim.
