Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Medical Malpractice in Essex County, NJ

FAQ: What Is Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice simply means that a doctor was careless in treating a patient. The technical legal definition in New Jersey is that the doctor failed to do something that was required by standard medical practice. Less commonly, NJ medical malpractice can also occur when a doctor does something that was forbidden by standard medical malpractice.

FAQ: What Is the Process for Starting Medical Malpractice Cases?

In order to start a medical malpractice case, the first thing your lawyer will need to do is collect a complete set of the patient’s medical records. Then, your attorney will need to have those records reviewed by a doctor in the same specialty as the doctor, surgeon, or medical provider who may be the defendant in the lawsuit. For example, if it’s a nephrologist, it will be necessary to hire a nephrologist to review the medical records. At that point, you will be ready to start a medical malpractice lawsuit.
