MEDICAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS IN PENNSYLVANIA AND NEW JERSEY
Sadly, thousands of patients suffer harm each year because of medical malpractice. We want to trust that our doctors and health care providers will never make a mistake that can result in illnesses, injuries, serious conditions, or loss of life. However, many patients and families find that their trust is misplaced.
Bad results will happen because doctors and medical providers are not miracle workers and they cannot always control the outcome. However, if a patient does not receive the acceptable standard of care or a health care provider is negligent, the patient might have a medical malpractice claim.
If you believe you have been injured because of a misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, medication error, or other incident involving medical negligence, you might be entitled to compensation for your damages.

Providing an Acceptable Level of Care for Patients
Doctors and medical professionals provide patients with the care necessary to heal from injuries, accidents, and illnesses. When a medical professional fails in his or her duty of care, the patient can suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. In addition to the condition the patient had before seeking medical treatment, the patient now must deal with another condition that can result in significant medical expenses and other costs. The patient also suffers additional emotional and physical pain and suffering because of the negligence of a medical professional.
Types of medical malpractice that our Pennsylvania and New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys handle include but are not limited to:
Limited Time to File Medical Malpractice Claims in New Jersey and Pennsylvania
If you believe you have a claim, you need to act now to protect your legal rights. You only have a limited time to file a medical malpractice claim. Under Pennsylvania law, you have only two years to file your claim in most cases. New Jersey also has a two-year statute of limitations in medical malpractice claims.
Medical malpractice lawsuits can be complex and complicated. You should never wait to contact an attorney because you assume that you have plenty of time to file a claim. There are exceptions to the general two-year rule and the time to file can begin at different points in different cases.
Proving a Medical Malpractice Claim
We must prove that the medical provider failed to meet the acceptable standard of care set by the medical community. In other words, we must prove your physician or other medical professional did not act in a manner consistent with how another medical provider would have acted under similar circumstances.
It can be difficult to prove that a doctor or provider deviated from the standard of care. We employ medical experts to establish the acceptable standard of care given the circumstances of your case to prove your medical provider was negligent in his judgments and/or actions. When you are fighting for justice, you want and need a law firm who has the resources, skills, knowledge, and experience to take on the medical community.
