The American Board of Professional Liability Attorneys states the following criteria must be met for a medical malpractice suit to succeed:
Verdict – Team Law’s client fell and dislocated her knee, causing an injury to the popliteal artery that ultimately resulted in the amputation of her leg. Suit was filed against the hospital to which she had been taken by ambulance, the emergency room doctor, a radiologist and an orthopedic surgeon. The orthopedic surgeon claimed he was inordinately delayed getting to the hospital because of traffic problems on the Garden State Parkway. Team Law was able to counter the surgeon’s testimony by obtaining records from the Garden State Parkway that showed no traffic problems and by obtaining the surgeon’s EZ Pass records. The claim against the emergency room doctor was that he should have asked for vascular consultation when he detected a weak pulse in the foot, not just an orthopedic consult. The claim against the radiologist was that his actions also delayed treatment. After a seven week trial, a verdict was entered in favor of Team Law’s client and against all four of those defendants.

Essex County is a county in the northeastern part of New Jersey. As of the 2019 Census estimate, the county’s population was 798,975, making it the state’s third-most populous county. In 2010, the county dropped down to third-largest, behind Middlesex County, and was one of only two counties in the state to see a decline between 2000 and 2010 (Cape May County being the other). Its county seat is Newark, the most populous city in the state. It is part of the New York Metropolitan Area. The Bureau of Economic Analysis ranked the county as having the 94th-highest per capita income of all 3,113 counties in the United States (and the seventh-highest in New Jersey) as of 2009.
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.
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.
