Signs of a Strong Personal Injury Claim

Pursuing damages for a personal injury can feel like a leap of faith. Although an attorney can advise you surrounding your case and what they believe the outcome to be, there are no guarantees. However, sometimes, the risk is worth the reward, especially if an attorney can help you obtain the outcome you are looking for. Knowing when the elements of a strong personal injury case may be helpful in understanding what an attorney may be looking for when taking on a case. In most cases, attorneys are incredibly motivated to obtain your desired outcome because in many situations, if you don't get paid, neither do they.

Medical malpractice insurance premiums have declined for the 6th straight year in a row for obstetrician-gynecologists, internists and general surgeons. Collective premium rates for these three medical specialties have fallen by about 2% each year. There is no current medical malpractice insurance crisis and continued efforts to further limit injured patients' access to the courts are not needed. There has been a 50% drop in malpractice claims since the supposed "liability crisis" in the early 2000s. The decrease in claims has resulted from tort reform that has been instituted in many states, but claims have also decreased in states that have not implemented such reforms.

When medical errors happen in New Jersey, there are a number of questions that must be studied to learn whether the errors constituted medical malpractice. In general, if a mistake is caused by a doctor or nurse deviating from the accepted standards of practice, that mistake is medical malpractice.

Hospitals and the manufacturers and sellers of medical devices sometimes also run afoul of accepted standards, resulting in harmful complications for patients.

Study: diagnostic errors are common and deadly

Medical diagnostic errors, such as the failure to diagnose a disease or condition or reaching an incorrect diagnosis, are a very serious type of medical malpractice. Diagnostic errors can lead to serious injuries and even death, and unfortunately this happens more than many New Jersey residents may be aware.
