New Jersey Medical Malpractice Basics

Medical malpractice cases arise when the actions of doctors, medical professionals or a medical facility cause injury. This can happen at any stage of the process during treatment for a condition. Our attorneys at Breslin & Breslin, P.A., are committed to helping you pursue compensation for your suffering.

Q. What Is Medical Malpractice?

A: Medical malpractice is a claim that a health care professional or facility acted negligently or provided substandard care, causing harm to you. In order to prove malpractice, you would need to show that the party acted, or failed to act in a way that another professional or facility of the same level would have when treating a patient in a similar situation.

Have you or a loved one been harmed by the actions of a medical facility or professional? We actively fight for settlements that cover victims' medical bills and other costs.

Q. Who Can Be Sued For Medical Malpractice?

A: Health care professionals and medical facilities can be held liable for medical malpractice. Health care professionals who are subject to medical malpractice claims include:

  • Doctors and nurses
  • Dentists
  • Technicians and other hospital workers
  • Pharmacists
  • Physical therapists

We will work with you to identify any potentially liable parties and determine the best course of action for pursuing compensation for your injury.

Q. How Do I Know If I Have A Case?

A: Although you may be unhappy with a bad medical result, it does not necessarily mean that you are the victim of medical malpractice. That is why consulting a knowledgeable medical malpractice lawyer is an important first step. Our legal team at Breslin & Breslin, P.A., includes a registered nurse so you can trust that we will thoroughly investigate and examine medical records and data to determine if malpractice has occurred.
