NJ Injury Guys’ service update acknowledges that medical malpractice has, according to the BMJ, become the third leading cause of death in the US and yet only accounts for around 85,000 lawsuits each year.
For the majority of cases, the team of lawyers and paralegals will help the families of victims settle out of court. However, for those who cannot negotiate a settlement and want to obtain justice for the death of their loved one, NJ Injury Guys will help them file a civil suit that seeks compensation for the consequences of the liable party’s professional error or negligence.
When building a case, the firm’s lawyers will address the 4 prerequisite elements that are essential for attributing liability, beginning with showing that the medical practitioner owed the deceased victim a duty of care and that they failed to fulfill their obligations. The legal team will then support this evidence by establishing the death’s causation, ranging from misdiagnosis and premature discharge to unnecessary surgery and inadequate aftercare.
This involves gathering evidence and obtaining expert testimonies, including affidavits from other doctors in the same field who are board-certified, as mandated under state law. Finally, they will show that the family and dependents of the victim suffered financial and emotional damage directly due to the actions, or inactions, of the defendant.
In addition to medical malpractice and wrongful death suits, NJ Injury Guys has sought restitution for clients in car accident, slip and fall, and personal injury cases. The firm provides a 24/7 hotline for victims who think they may be entitled to compensation.
A spokesperson for the firm said, “You are entitled to seek legal representation if you believe you have a wrongful death case, such as when an accident or another person’s negligence led to the death of a family member.”
