South Jersey Medical Malpractice Attorneys
We trust that doctors will use all possible caution and diligence when diagnosing and treating our condition. When these expectations are not met and our health is compromised, the consequences can be life altering.
At Wallace Law, our Camden County medical malpractice lawyer is here for you. He understands the many issues that surround doctor negligence, and is particularly well equipped to deal with claims in the orthopedic, podiatry and dental fields.
Establishing Your Claim
Everyone makes mistakes — including doctors and health care personnel. Not all mistakes constitute medical malpractice, even if you experienced a poor or adverse outcome. It is thus always a good idea to consult with an experienced lawyer before taking legal action. He or she can evaluate the facts of your matter and determine whether your case is valid.
A well-founded claim will establish that your doctor or other provider neglected to abide by accepted standards of care or safety, or he or she was negligent in diagnosing or treating your condition. Common examples of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical procedure error
- Delayed diagnosis of conditions such as oral cancer
- Failure to properly monitor a patient
- Failure to deliver timely treatment
Building Your Case
Under New Jersey law, you must obtain an “affidavit of merit” from a doctor who works in the same field as the person with whom you treated. This will help confirm that your health care provider was negligent or deviated from an acceptable standard of care.
At Wallace Law, we are committed to building a strong case on your behalf. Our attorney has more than 25 years of legal experience and is well attuned to the many nuances and complexities of medical malpractice matters. He understands state standards and will do his utmost to gather the evidence you need to win full and fair compensation.
