New Jersey Hospital Malpractice Lawyers

An inpatient may suffer an injury caused by negligence during surgery, in the emergency room or in the course of an extended hospital stay. New Jersey statutes provide for limited liability for not-for-profit hospitals in cases of harm occurring during inpatient medical care. The state's caps on hospital malpractice awards can make it financially unfeasible to develop a strong case against the hospital system itself, but we recognize that all errors have some human component.

These restrictive caps do not apply in cases brought against the individual negligent personnel in a hospital who may still be covered by the hospital's insurer. Lawsuits that hold negligent employees or contractors responsible for harm to patients are therefore more advisable.

It can be difficult or impossible for lay persons to distinguish hospital malpractice from other forms of medical malpractice or general negligence that often take place inside hospitals. If you suffered serious harm or if a family member lost his or her life due to negligence in a New Jersey hospital, consult with a knowledgeable attorney at Britcher Leone, LLC.

Initial consultations carry no further obligation to retain the law firm. Talk with one of our attorneys about a potential hospital malpractice or medical malpractice claim for compensation after an injury occurs in a New Jersey hospital. We can help determine whether negligent hospital personnel are protected by an immunity or whether you have an opportunity to recover for harmful medical errors inside a hospital.

It is important to realize that an injured person should not focus claims against a hospital system. The building itself generally cannot cause the harm. Rather, a successful negligence case may focus on errors on the part of human beings and businesses that conduct business inside hospitals such as:

  • ER doctors
  • Surgeons
  • Anesthesiologists
  • Nurses
  • Therapists
  • Equipment maintenance personnel
  • Maintenance companies
  • Food service contractors

Was your injury in a hospital the result of hospital employee malpractice? Or was it the result of negligence on the part of a third party providing services on contract to the hospital? A defective piece of medical equipment may also be to blame — in which case you may have a viable product liability case.
