Common Types of Medical Malpractice in Bergen County

In general, medical malpractice occurs when a doctor or nurse (or other similar licensed medical professional) unreasonably and without justification renders substandard care to the patient and the patient is injured thereby. This can include:

  • Misdiagnosing a condition or illness: Misdiagnoses can cause a patient to needlessly undergo expensive and/or painful treatments that do not provide any medical benefit to the patient. Alternatively, a misdiagnosis can prevent a patient from receiving the timely care he or she does need in order to heal and recover from an illness or medical condition.
  • Wrong organ or wrong limb surgeries: A doctor or surgeon performing a procedure on a patient must take reasonable steps to ensure the body part being operated upon is the correct body part in need of treatment or removal. A patient may have a valid medical malpractice suit, for example, if a surgeon was supposed to remove a patient’s right kidney but removes the left kidney instead.
  • Foreign object injuries: Pain, discomfort, and/or serious infections can result if a surgeon fails to remove medical tools, gauze, or other similar foreign objects from the surgery site at the conclusion of the procedure. Oftentimes, a patient may not know that he or she has been injured in this way until months – or even years – later.
