Medical Malpractice Attorneys North Bergen, NJ
Injuries sustained due to the medical malpractice of a healthcare professional in North Bergen, NJ are often quite difficult for the victim to understand. After all, they may not realize that they have an actionable claim against the treating healthcare professional. Generally speaking, we have been led to believe that trained professionals — such as physicians, nurses, and many others in the medical context — always have our best interests at heart. Even if this were true, however, there are numerous instances in which a healthcare professional “cuts corners” or otherwise fails to uphold the expected standard of care. This can lead to significant and unexpected injuries.
If you have been injured by a healthcare professional in North Bergen,New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation pursuant to a medical malpractice action. Contact an experienced North Bergen medical malpractice attorney here at Blume Forte Fried Zerres & Molinari for a free consultation and evaluation of your claims.
Our North Bergen Medical Malpractice Attorneys Can Help You Secure Compensation
North Bergen medical malpractice injuries can arise out of a wide variety of scenarios, including:
- Birth injury
- Surgical errors
- Delayed diagnosis and failure to diagnose
- Delayed or incorrect treatment
- Failures in emergency room care
- Hospital negligence (i.e., negligent scheduling, inadequate training, etc.)
- Medication errors
- Testing errors
- And more
Unless the healthcare professional at issue has intentionally caused your injuries, the standard of care will likely be implicated. The professional standard of care can vary substantially from case to case and generally depends on the circumstances. The strictness of the standard will vary on the basis of the healthcare professional’s age, training, and experience, the geographic location, the nature of your condition, and more.
For example, if the defendant-surgeon makes a mistake during a basic surgery on your leg and causes you to be permanently disabled, then they may have violated the standard of care, given that the injury might have been rather straightforward. On the other hand, if your loved one had a terminal illness and the defendant-surgeon made a last ditch effort to save them with an experimental surgery — but it failed — then you may not have a claim against the surgeon for medical malpractice, given the nature of the condition.
Blume Forte Has a Long History of Success in North Bergen, NJ
Firms that handle medical malpractice claims are not at all uncommon, which can make it rather difficult for a first-time plaintiff to select a team of attorneys to represent them in their North Bergen medical malpractice litigation. Medical malpractice claims are frequently more complex than they initially appear, however, and the defendant-insurer may be aggressive about fighting the case. Successful recovery will therefore turn on the ability of your attorneys to bring their medical malpractice knowledge and experience to bear on your behalf. A firm with less experience is at a fundamental disadvantage in the medical malpractice context in North Bergen litigation.

If you have been injured by a healthcare professional in North Bergen, NJ, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. In New Jersey, healthcare professionals are not shielded from liability merely because of their status. However, it is worth noting that medical malpractice claims are rather challenging to litigate. Medical malpractice insurers are famously hostile and aggressive, and they are often willing to fight a borderline case so as to discourage others from pursuing litigation. As such, the guidance of a skilled North Bergen medical malpractice attorney is even more important than it normally would be for a standard personal injury lawsuit.

About North Bergen, NJ
North Bergen is a small town in the northeastern part of New Jersey and has around 60,000 residents. The town is located in Hudson County (on the Hillside Palisades), is bounded on the east by the Hudson River, and is situated across from New York City. Given its location, North Bergen maintains a relatively high profile as a services, agricultural, and transportation center.
The modern town of North Bergen was incorporated in 1843 and grew from there. Prior to that date, however, North Bergen was part of Jersey City. Before that, Jersey City belonged to the Dutch. If we continue to travel even further back in time, the area now known as North Bergen once belonged to the Lepane Indian tribe.
