Medical Malpractice Explained By NJ Medical Malpractice Lawyers

medical malpractice lawyersErrors by a doctor or nurse often have devastating and lasting effect on the patient, including catastrophic injury or death. If you suspect that a family member or friend has suffered serious harm from negligent care, contact the NJ medical malpractice lawyers of Uscher, Quiat, Uscher & Russo, P.C. We have the resources and experience to prevail in these complex cases.

UQUR handles all types of medical malpractice claims on behalf of victims in New Jersey:

  • Failure to diagnose cancer and other life-threatening conditions, thus leading to delayed treatment and/or wrongful death
  • Incorrect diagnosis leading to harmful treatment
  • Surgical mistakes (i.e., operating on the wrong body part, severed arteries or nerves, infection from foreign objects left in the patient)
  • Medication errors (i.e., wrong prescription, excessive dosage, harmful drug interactions)

Birth injuries and infant death (nerve damage or brain damage during delivery, failure to diagnose or treat fetal distress, negligent care of newborns)

Our philosophy at the law firm of UQUR is to be accessible to clients and involve them in all decisions. This close contact is especially important in medical negligence claims.

Experienced Counsel for Difficult Cases

Litigation against physicians and hospitals places a high burden of proof on the injured party. An injury itself is not automatic grounds for a malpractice lawsuit. For example, patient claims against doctors or hospitals must show a clear deviation from the accepted standard of care. To prove malpractice, our medical malpractice lawyers consult with experts in the given field of medicine to examine medical records and confirm how medical standards were breached.

UQUR possesses extensive knowledge from our long experience in disability, health, and life insurance litigation. We understand that presenting a credible case means learning the medical issues as well or better than the doctors.
