New Jersey and New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys

People expect a certain standard of care when visiting the doctor, a hospital or undergoing surgery. When that standard of care is not provided because of negligence or misconduct, the clinic or medical professional may be liable. They may be responsible for the costs of the injuries that result from their failure to provide the appropriate standard of care.

Common causes of medical malpractice

At Koles & Burke, LLP our attorneys have many years of experience with medical malpractice claims. We have helped people obtain compensation for injuries caused by:

Obstetrical errors (causing injury to the mother or child)
Surgical errors
Failure to diagnose cancer and other diseases or conditions
Failure to read tests results correctly
Medical lab mistakes
Pharmacy errors and prescription mistakes
Nursing home abuse and neglect

Our lawyers have tried many medical malpractice cases over the years, and can advise you about your options and your rights.

The consequences of medical errors

People injured by the negligence or misconduct of medical providers may experience injuries such as infections following surgery, treatment or surgery on the wrong body part, and damage to adjacent body parts because of nicks and cuts. They can suffer brain damage or death because of anesthesia errors such as over-sedation. Babies can experience birth injuries such as shoulder dystocia or cerebral palsy because of mistakes during labor and delivery. People can suffer adverse reactions from ill-advised medications, the wrong medications, and medications prescribed that interact poorly with other prescribed medications.

Medical malpractice claims are not limited to those against doctors

We have helped clients injured because of medical malpractice file claims against hospitals, physicians, clinics, medical supply companies, pharmacies, labs, nurses, physical therapists, and other medical providers. We consult with a wide variety of medical and legal experts and specialists when building medical malpractice cases.

We urge people who believe they have been harmed by medical neglect or malpractice to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. This allows evidence to be preserved and witnesses to be interviewed while their memories are fresh.
