$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.

Union County is a county in the northern part of the U.S. state of New Jersey. As of the 2019 Census estimate, the county’s population was 556,341, making it the seventh-most populous of the state’s 21 counties. In 2010, Union County slipped to the seventh-most populous county in the state, having been surpassed by Ocean County. Union County is part of the New York metropolitan area. Its county seat is Elizabeth. A study by Forbes.com determined that Union County pays the second-highest property taxes of all U.S. counties, based on 2007 data. With a population density of 4,955 people per square mile (water excluded), Union County was the 15th-most densely populated county in the United States as of the 2010 Census, and third-densest in New Jersey, behind Hudson County (ranked 6th nationwide) and Essex County (ranked 11th).
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.
The answer to this question is: zero! We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we don’t put money into our pocket until you do the same. As a result, you can be sure that we will aggressively fight for you and seek out the greatest amount of compensation on your behalf.
