Get Fair Compensation For Your Medical Malpractice Injuries
People entering the hospital for surgery or visiting the doctor’s office expect to receive the highest standard of care. They don’t anticipate that something routine such as a prescription drug consultation, a hip replacement or an immunization will cause injury or additional illness. Sadly, however, this happens all the time at hospitals in Jersey City, Newark, Morristown and elsewhere in New Jersey. People suffer injury and illness at the hands of medical providers who are negligent. So, what can injured patients do about it?
Newark Personal Injury Lawyers Handling Medical Malpractice Cases
The first thing a victim of hospital negligence should do is consult with an experienced New Jersey medical malpractice attorney. At the Florham Park law firm of McHugh & Imbornone, P.A. Law Office, our lawyers help people seek compensation for their injuries and losses after they’ve experienced medical malpractice because of the negligence or carelessness of a medical provider, company or organization. We file claims and lawsuits against doctors, nurses, physical therapists, hospitals, clinics, drug manufacturers and others involved in the provision of health care. These cases can be complex and not everyone injured in a medical setting will be eligible to file a lawsuit. Our attorneys will advise you about your legal options.

Each of these situations requires investigation, expert consultants and persistence to build strong cases on behalf of the medical malpractice victim. Our medical malpractice attorneys can provide all of this – and more. We use our skills and experience to develop tailored strategies for each client in pursuit of maximum compensation for their injuries and losses.
Consequences Of Medical Malpractice At Hospitals
Our attorneys understand how devastating a medical error can be. Depending on the type of error, it could require additional surgery, longer treatment and painful reconstruction of damaged tissue. In the worst cases, a serious medical error could result in temporary disability, permanent disability or death. Victims could develop permanent drug allergies that limit their ability to fight infections in the future. They could contract hospital-borne illnesses that have become increasingly difficult to treat. It’s a cliché, but hospitals and clinics are often not safe for sick people. When people are hurt or made sicker because of errors or exposure to dangerous infectious agents, they deserve compensation.
