Hackensack Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Paramus Medical Negligence Lawyers
Medical malpractice, simply put, occurs when your medical provider deviates from the normal standard of care. Medical providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care expected for people in their profession. If a doctor, surgeon, hospital or other medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the accepted standard of care, then that provider may be liable for an injured person’s damages.
Though the majority of health care providers do good work, mistakes are sometimes made which could adversely affect a person for the rest of his or her life. The Epstein Law Firm represents individuals and families in New Jersey whose medical providers have breached the standard of care in diagnosing or treating medical conditions. We believe strongly in holding providers accountable when they cause harm. A successful legal claim can not only benefit the injured person, but can serve to make the public safer by getting providers to change their practices.
