When Is A Medical Mistake Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is negligence by a health care provider in which the treatment provided falls below the accepted standard of practice in the medical community, causing injury or death to the patient.
One of the most common causes of medical error occurs not when doctors actually do something, but when they don’t. For example:
- Costly medical tests are skipped
- Data from test results is overlooked or misdiagnosed as a less serious condition than it truly is
Have Your Injuries Been Exacerbated By Medical Negligence Or Malpractice?
Doctors, surgeons and other health care professionals often fail to identify and diagnose a patient for an adverse health condition or illness. When this happens, the damage caused to the patient’s health can become irreversible, leading to chronic pain, sickness or death that could have been prevented.

Stillman, P.A., we will help you understand your legal rights under New Jersey medical malpractice law and determine whether your health care provider failed to extend appropriate care. Our attorney can help you pursue appropriate treatment and just compensation on your behalf.
