Medical Malpractice Attorneys in Passaic County

If you have had the misfortune to be a victim of malpractice, you know it is emotionally and physically painful to be injured by the carelessness of someone you trusted with your care. Whether you have suffered misdiagnosis or mistreatment by your personal physician, a surgeon or other specialist, a hospital, or a nursing facility, you need one of our knowledgeable medical malpractice attorneys to advocate for you so that have the best chance of recovering maximum damages for present and future medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability, and loss of enjoyment of life.

We will do everything in our power to recover damages for your:

  • Medical and rehabilitation costs

  • Pain and suffering

If you have lost a loved one to medical malpractice or any other type of personal injury, although we cannot assuage your grief, we will fight tenaciously to bring you a modicum of justice by providing you with recompense for final medical costs, funeral/burial/cremation expenses, and loss of financial support and companionship.

Class Action Lawsuits in Passaic County

In class action lawsuits, our lawyers will use an individual or small group of plaintiffs to represent a larger group of victims who have suffered harm due to similar misconduct by the same defendant. A class action lawsuit allows us to hold a corporate enterprise liable for the harm they have caused a significant portion of the public.

At Nagel Rice, we have the power and determination to take on large corporations on behalf of small minorities they have injured or, in some cases, even killed. Our class action attorneys have a history of positive outcomes in a wide variety of class action suits, including those involving: 

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

If you believe you have a potential class action lawsuit, get in touch with us so that we can examine your evidence and investigate thoroughly to see whether other plaintiffs are in the same boat. If so, we may very well have a viable case. If we do, we will work hard to recover damages for you and the other parties who have been harmed. In personal injury, malpractice, and class-action lawsuits, we work on contingency. This means that you will be charged no attorney fees until you have received damages.
