Oak Ridge Medical Malpractice Attorneys
If you are injured or become seriously ill in Oak Ridge, you may seek out treatment and care from one of the several medical professionals that have established an office in the Oak Ridge area. Like doctors in other parts of the State, a doctor who practices in Oak Ridge must first complete a medical program and obtain licensure before he or she is permitted to practice medicine. This is designed to help prevent individuals from practicing medicine when they do not have the requisite training and/or education to do so safely.
Sadly, even those medical professionals who are properly educated and licensed can still make mistakes that end up costing their patients their health, wellbeing, and (sometimes) even their very lives. When you or your loved one are injured in such an accident and it appears your doctor or other healthcare worker did not exercise appropriate care during the course of your treatment, Aretsky Law Group, P.C. is able to represent your legal interests and may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injuries and losses.
What is an Oak Ridge Medical Malpractice Case?
Title 2A of the New Jersey Statutes permits patients who are injured by a doctor, nurse, or similar medical professional to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit against the professional. In essence, a medical malpractice lawsuit alleges that the professional in question provided substandard care and/or treatment that deviated from the standard of care the patient should have received. While this may sound like an easy assertion to prove, the truth is not all medical injuries or unsuccessful outcomes are able to be compensated through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
Compensable injuries in a medical malpractice case are those injuries that result from care that is objectively subpar. In other words, the testimony of expert witnesses must convince a factfinder that no other medical professional in the Oak Ridge community (and having a similar background and education as your medical professional) would have behaved in the manner that your medical professional behaved and/or provide the type of treatment your medical professional gave to you.
