Call me, Joseph Monaco, Middlesex County Medical Malpractice Lawyer, to evaluate whether you or a family member are the victim of medical malpractice, which can be committed by physicians, nurses, dentists, physician assistants, chiropractors, surgeons, radiologists, nurse practitioners and hospitals.
What is Middlesex County Medical Malpractice?
Malpractice is reckless or negligent care from a medical provider such as a physician. When a legal duty to the patient is breached and harm results, this is medical malpractice. The legal elements of a medical malpractice case include a patient-physician relationship creating the duty of care, a breach of that duty, resulting bodily injury or death and causation (harm was caused by the breach of duty). Medical providers must meet a “Standard of Care,” expressed or implied, set by the medical community including the specialties to which they belong. This is the duty they must achieve when caring for patients.
