New Jersey Surgical Errors Attorneys
Most surgeons work hard to do everything right in order to heal, not harm, their patients. In some cases, however, a surgeon acts carelessly or negligently, resulting in significant injury or wrongful death to the patient. Examples range from operating on the wrong body part (wrong-site surgery) to leaving foreign objects behind in the patient’s body.

Proving Malpractice is a Job for Skilled Morristown Surgical Negligence Lawyers
Medical professionals who fail to uphold the accepted standard of care may be held responsible. To prove such malpractice in a court of law, your attorney must be able to prove the following points:
- He or she deviated from the accepted standard of care.
- That deviation resulted in the patient’s injury or death.
- The surgeon had a duty to provide care.
These cases are very complex and frequently require expert testimony and an in-depth investigation of the patient’s medical records and other evidence. Our firm has the resources and knowledge to conduct a comprehensive analysis of your situation and determine if you may have grounds for a lawsuit.
