Bergen County Nursing Error Lawyers

The vast majority of nurses are certainly honorable, skilled medical professionals, but when those professionals deviate from the accepted standard of care or fail to treat or diagnose your condition properly, you need an advocate.

At Breslin & Breslin, we examine medical records and incident reports along with trusted medical experts to determine if medical negligence was a factor in your injury. In fact, Breslin & Breslin attorney Karen Boe Gatlin is a registered nurse with more than 20 years of legal experience.

Our firm handles cases for clients in Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey. We approach each case with compassion toward clients and with a determination to discover what went wrong, why an error was made and how it could have been prevented.

Pursuing a medical negligence claim is about obtaining the maximum compensation that our clients deserve for injuries, but it is also very much about working to prevent such errors from injuring other people in the future.

Holding Responsible Parties Accountable

Most claims are made against hospitals or larger health care providers, not individual nurses. A medical malpractice claim involving negligence on behalf of a nurse almost always involves compensation that is far beyond what a nurse or doctor would be able to pay an injured party. We will determine responsibility in your case and hold the larger entity accountable for malpractice if any of the following types of negligence resulted from nursing care:

  • Failure to properly monitor a patient under nurse care

  • Failure to properly treat a patient under nurse care
  • Medication errors concerning administration and dosage
  • Surgical errors
  • Failure to fully inform patients of procedural risks
  • Improper use of medical equipment or devices
