Medical Malpractice in Monmouth County

Medical malpractice is not “just a mistake.” It is a breach of trust by a trained professional who should know better. It is also a violation of the law. If you have suffered severe, long-term, or permanent harm at the hands of a practitioner or a healthcare facility, our medical malpractice attorneys will fight to recover the damages you need for medical and rehabilitation costs, lost income, permanent disability, and loss of enjoyment of life. 

Medical malpractice may occur in a number of ways, including:

  • Surgical or prescription errors
  • Nursing care negligence or abuse
  • Incorrect administration of medication or anesthesia
  • Inadequate sterilization of surfaces or equipment 
  • Emergency room or delivery room mistakes

Medical malpractice is defined as deviation from acceptable standards of healthcare. This means that if a breach of accepted protocol occurred and you suffered physical and financial harm as a result, we can wage a legal battle to recover the resources you need. Our team of experienced attorneys can help you recover damages for:

  • Medical and rehabilitation costs
  • Lost income
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Final medical costs, funeral/burial expenses, loss of financial/emotional support (in cases of wrongful death)

Class Action

In class action lawsuits, our attorneys use an individual or a small group of plaintiffs to represent a much larger group of victims who have suffered harm due to similar misconduct by the same defendant. With this action, we can hold a corporate defendant accountable for the harm they have caused the unsuspecting population.

Nagel Rice has a record of taking on corporations whose negligence has led to serious harm of multiple victims. Our class action lawyers have had successful outcomes in cases across the board, including matters that involve: 

  • Automotive defects, unreported or unrepaired
  • Deceptive advertising
  • Breached warranty
  • Brokerage misconduct (e.g. investment manipulations)
  • Credit card fraud
  • Illegally high interest or membership rates
  • Inadequate healthcare insurance reimbursements
  • Pharmaceutical/medical device defects

If you come to us with a potential class action lawsuit, we will investigate thoroughly to see whether you and the other plaintiffs have a viable case. If you do, we will work hard to develop a winning courtroom strategy. 

Business Litigation

Our Monmouth County business litigation attorneys assist companies of all sizes in handling a wide variety of disputes, including those related to:

  • Contracts 
  • Sales
  • Mergers and acquisitions 
  • Government compliance
  • Shareholder or partnership conflicts

Our combined negotiation and litigation strengths and our in-depth knowledge of the laws and  complexities of business agreements, give us an advantage when it comes to winning cases involving business disputes.

As your business litigation attorneys, we have the ability to handle your professional, business or legal malpractice case as well as cases pertaining to estate and trust matters, environmental compliance, and whistleblower concerns. We prefer to try to settle your dispute out of court in order to save you time and expense, but if it becomes clear that trying to negotiate a settlement is a deadend, you can trust us to litigate tenaciously on your behalf.
