To successfully recover compensation in a medical malpractice case, you need a lawyer who understands the details. Medical malpractice cases are different than other injury cases. Courts require additional testimony and evidence before victims are even permitted to proceed in bringing a case.
The basic elements required to prove a medical malpractice case are also different. To establish your right to compensation for medical malpractice, your lawyer must prove:
Proving your case can be difficult in medical malpractice cases because you might not always know what caused your condition to worsen. Doctors and medical professionals do not always admit fault. Our investigation into your case is therefore critical to find out what happened.
After investigating and reviewing your medical records, our lawyers consult with medical experts to obtain the medical opinions needed to support your claim and move forward with your case.
$5.6 Million 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.

Plainfield is located in the New York City metropolitan area, in Union County, New Jersey. While Plainfield residents now have a variety of healthcare options to choose from—both in NYC and neighboring communities—in the 1950s to 1970s, Plainfield itself was a hub of healthcare facilities. In fact, Plainfield’s Park Avenue was once nicknamed “Doctor’s Row”. Since then, the Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center in Plainfield has been closed down. Plainfield residents continue to have access to emergency care at JFK Medical Center’s satellite clinic today.
The “standard of care” changes from case to case. It is a standard that is developed by doctors and medical professionals, not lawyers. That’s why the expert opinion of medical professionals is so important to proving a medical malpractice case. The standard of care is determined based on medical research, test results and actual treatment outcomes over time. The key element is identifying what a reasonable, trained medical professional would have done when faced with the same circumstances as your case.
Because we don’t want our clients to have to worry about paying up front, our lawyers work on a contingency basis. That means we only recover compensation if we win. Our clients pay us a percentage after they have already received their settlement. We also advance the costs necessary to retain experts and conduct investigations needed to prove your case.
Team Law is outstanding. Everyone is courteous and knowledgeable and I felt that I got the personal attention that I needed.what our clients are saying
