Ridgewood Medical Negligence and Malpractice
Doctors of The Valley Hospital and other centers and offices in Ridgewood say they are committed to your and your family’s health. Such a commitment, however genuine, is no guarantee that these doctors and healthcare workers will not make a careless mistake that can cause you or your loved one significant pain and necessitate additional remedial treatment and procedures. In extreme cases, your loved one may be killed or an easily-treatable disease may be left untreated and cause a shortened life span.

A medical malpractice suit filed in Ridgewood seeks to hold a careless doctor or negligent medical professional accountable for the harm and losses the injured patient experiences as a result of the malpractice. In order to succeed in this endeavor, New Jersey Statutes Section 2A:53A-27 requires most injured patients to present testimony from one or more expert witnesses to establish the following:
- The medical professional owed the patient a duty of care. This is rarely the point of contention in Ridgewood medical malpractice cases because medical professionals generally have a duty to render appropriate and reasonable care to their patients.
- The medical professional rendered substandard care to the patient. A doctor or nurse is not liable for a bad outcome in a procedure or making an incorrect diagnosis in a difficult case; instead, doctors and nurses are liable when their decisions, diagnoses, and actions are so unreasonable that no other reasonable medical professional of a similar background would have engaged in the same or similar conduct;
- The substandard care caused the patient to experience some injury, whether this injury was pain and discomfort, temporary or permanent disabilities, additional medical procedures and treatment, or a loss in one’s chance of surviving an otherwise treatable condition.
