Aggressive, Experienced Lawyer Represents Medical Malpractice Victims in New Jersey & New York

When you go to a hospital, clinic or emergency room, you depend on trained medical professionals to properly diagnose your condition and provide you with the treatment you need. When a doctor, nurse or other medical practitioner misdiagnoses or fails to diagnose a medical condition, administers wrong medication or makes a surgical mistake, the result can be irreversible, even fatal damage, to your health.

Whether your injury was caused by an understaffed emergency room, a poorly trained doctor or an overworked nurse, you may be looking at a lengthy recovery process and significant medical bills that go well beyond what you expected to pay when you arrived at the medical facility.

Doctors need to be held responsible for violating professional standards.

Most Common Types of Medical Malpractice in Union and Middlesex Counties

Depending on the nature of the hospital error or mistake, medical malpractice can result in catastrophic injuries or even death. Some of the most common types of medical malpractice in New Jersey and New York include:

Misdiagnosis: Doctors need to be able to recognize the warning signs of life-threatening conditions like cancer, strokes and heart attacks. When a condition is misdiagnosed, or diagnosis is delayed, a preventable injury can turn into a tragedy.

Failure to diagnose: Doctors must be properly trained to recognize the symptoms of dangerous illnesses and diseases like cancer because a delayed or lack of diagnosis can be potentially fatal.

Diagnostic imaging mistakes: If the radiologist fails to diagnose a condition or misdiagnoses a problem on an x-ray, CAT scan, MRI, or any other diagnostic test, the patient will have delayed or no treatment. An example might be failing to identify pneumonia on a chest x-ray.

Surgical error: Surgical mistakes can be catastrophic and even deadly, particularly if a negligent surgeon performs the wrong procedure. If the patient contracts an infection during surgery, the recovery process can be prolonged as well.

Failure to medicate: When a doctor or nurse fails to properly medicate a patient, or administers an incorrect dosage to a patient, the result can be significant pain and an increased likelihood of traumatic injury or death. For example, if a patient had a stroke, giving the wrong medication might prevent any chance of recovery.

Anesthesia error: When an anesthesiologist fails to properly administer anesthesia prior to surgery, the patient can suffer a heart attack or stroke.

Birth errors: Birth-related injuries include Erb’s palsy and cerebral palsy, which can cause permanent damage to the child.

Nursing home abuse: When nursing home staff act negligently and fail to properly care for your elderly loved one, this abuse and mistreatment can cause significant physical and emotional damage.

Securing Compensation in New Jersey Medical Malpractice Cases

NJ medical malpractice law is a highly complex area of law. Before you file a medical malpractice claim, you will need to secure the services of a qualified attorney who can help you obtain a certificate of merit from a physician in the same specialty as the doctor who was negligent in your case. Beyond that, your attorney will need to have a sound strategy for pursuing damages in your medical malpractice case.

Andrew Calcagno knows how to investigate the causes of your personal injury, secure copies of all necessary medical records, interview witnesses who are favorable to your claim and consult with relevant medical experts and specialists who can support your case.

If you have been the victim of medical malpractice or hospital negligence, it is imperative that you act quickly. Failure to file claims, as well as all required forms and documentation, in a timely manner could lead to your claim being declared ineligible. New Jersey law imposes strict deadlines and statutes of limitations in medical malpractice cases. Mr. Calcagno can make sure you meet all deadlines.
