Medical Malpractice Practice Areas:
When an individual dies because of improper diagnosis, or while under the treatment of a doctor, surgeon, or hospital, it is reasonable to investigate whether negligence may have been a contributing factor. Proving a medical malpractice wrongful death case requires an understanding of diagnostic procedures and accepted standards of care for medical conditions. Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy is recognized throughout New Jersey as leaders in the field of medical malpractice law in New Jersey.
Hospital administration and medical staff members are liable for any failure to meet the accepted standard of care which results in medical harm to a patient. Hospital malpractice may include surgical errors, anesthesiology complications, errors regarding informed consent, communication errors, medication errors, nursing errors, hospital infections, and emergency room errors.

Effective medical care begins with a timely and appropriate diagnosis. If your doctor failed to properly diagnose your condition, order necessary tests, or refer you to a specialist, he or she may have been medically negligent. A misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis may be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit in serious conditions such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, aneurysm, ectopic pregnancy, heart defects, meningitis, or thyroid disease.
Licensed doctors and medical professionals must provide the accepted standard of care when diagnosing and treating their patients. Victims of physician negligence may not be aware that their injuries and damages have been caused by their doctors’ negligence. If you are not sure, talk to an experienced New Jersey medical malpractice lawyer at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy. We offer free consultations for potential medical malpractice clients.

Wrongful birth cases may result from a doctor’s failure to diagnose Down’s syndrome, Tay-Sach’s disease, cystic fibrosis, or spina bifida.
