Experienced Ocean County Medical Malpractice Claims Lawyers
When a doctor or any other medical professional make a mistake, lives hang in the balance. Families deserve compensation when medical malpractice leads to a catastrophic injury or wrongful death in New Jersey. Our Ocean County malpractice attorneys can help.
The Brick medical malpractice attorneys at LePore & Luizzi help families who have suffered from medical malpractice. Our lawyers offer free consultations and, in many cases, do all work on contingency, charging no attorneys’ fees until a settlement or verdict is won.
We handle cases involving the following:
- Failure to diagnose a medical condition
- All surgical errors
- Plastic surgery mistakes
- Nursing mistakes, including nursing medication errors
- Hospital negligence
- Drug dispensing errors
- Emergency room errors
- Birth injury
Medical Malpractice cases are very difficult to analyze, and for this reason, you need to have a knowledgeable attorney review the case on your behalf. Generally, in order to prove a medical malpractice case, you need another doctor from the same medical specialty to review the case and conclude within a reasonable degree of medical certainty that your doctor committed malpractice. The reviewing doctor gets paid regardless if there is a case or not, and for this reason, we are selective in the cases we accept. However, we offer free consultations and invite you to let us review your case and give you our professional opinion.
New Jersey Dental Malpractice Lawyers
In addition to representing people harmed by doctors, nurses, hospitals, clinics and pharmacists, we also represent clients injured by dental malpractice. Please contact us if you were harmed by dentist, periodontist or oral surgeon. These cases may involve permanent nerve damage to the mouth, tongue and jaw; anesthesia-related injuries or deaths; damage to the teeth, gums or jaw from faulty bridges or crowns; infections and TMJ caused by malpractice.
Defective Medical Device Product Liability
When doctors or other medical professionals use or prescribe medical devices that are defective, the doctor or medical professional and the manufacturer of the product may be liable for any damages caused by the defect. Examples of such devices are hip implants, knee implants, shoulder implants as well as any other medical implants or devices used by doctors or medical professionals. Mr. Luizzi has successfully handled and settled a defective medical device case about defective hip implants for two clients that received a combined settlement totaling over $780,000.00.
Malpractice by Other Professionals
Doctors are not the only professionals who make mistakes. Accountants, architects, engineers, insurance agents, realtors and other professionals can make mistakes that cost you thousands of dollars. If that professional did not follow the accepted standard of care in his or her industry, they may have committed professional malpractice. If the professional did commit malpractice, you are entitled to sue him or her for any losses you sustained as a result of the mistake. As with medical malpractice cases, a professional malpractice case is more complicated than your average negligence case, and you should have it reviewed by a professional.
