If you or a family member have been needlessly injured or killed in Atlantic County, New Jersey as a result of medical malpractice, contact me, Joseph Monaco, to learn from an Atlantic County New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyer whether you have a valid claim. Generally, public opinion favors physicians in determining whether malpractice was committed. Unfortunately, medical errors are still one of the least talked about issues given their significance as one of the leading causes of death and personal injuries in our country. Between 44,000 to 98,000 Americans die in hospitals each year due to preventable medical errors. Only 5 percent of doctors (1 out of 20) are responsible for 54 percent of malpractice payouts. (National Practitioner Data Bank, Sept. 1, 1990 – Sept. 30, 2002.). Only 8 percent of doctors (1 out of 12) with 2 or more malpractice payouts have been disciplined by their state medical board. (National Practitioner Data Bank, Sept. 1, 1990 – Sept. 30, 2002.). Moreover, the doctors’ insurance companies and lawyers defend the cases fully and aggressively. That is why it is crucial to have an Atlantic County Medical Malpractice Lawyer on your side to level the playing field.

Atlantic County, New Jersey medical malpractice claims require evidence that the hospital or physician deviated from the “Standard of Care” set by the medical community. This evidence is usually provided by a physician with the same specialty as the physician being sued. Under New Jersey law, a medical facility such as a hospital is held responsible for medical malpractice committed by their employees including nurses, emergency room physicians and therapists. Even though a physician may be on the staff of a particular hospital this does not necessarily mean the physician is an employee of the hospital. Call me to sort through these complex issues including whether you or a loved one have a valid medical malpractice claim.
