Monmouth County Emergency Room & Hospital Error Lawyers
Medical Malpractice Attorneys Holding New Jersey Hospitals and Emergency Rooms Accountable for Negligence
In 1999, the Institute of Medicine released a report that stated that as many as 98,000 people die due to preventable hospital errors in the United States every year. Hospitals and emergency rooms in New Jersey and across the country are supposed to be staffed with trained, competent professionals. Unfortunately, due to budget issues, understaffing and lack of proper training, mistakes are made on a regular basis – mistakes that can affect your life.
At the law firm of Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our Hazlet attorneys recognize hospital error for what it is, due to their extensive medical knowledge and experience in handling medical malpractice cases. This also assists them in clearly explaining the full impact of your injuries to the opposition, or to a jury if your case needs to go to trial.

We have a reputation for only accepting legitimate cases. This means that our claims are taken seriously by those they are brought against. We find that this can assist our clients in pretrial negotiations. If our lawyers feel that you are not being treated fairly, we will take your case to court. Our firm has an impressive list of verdicts and settlements to its name.
Hospital and Emergency Room Errors in New Jersey
Numerous mistakes can occur in hospitals and emergency rooms, including:
- Medication errors
- Misreading patient charts
- Misinterpretation of lab or test results
- Leaving patients unattended for an extended period
- Duplicate treatments or doses of medication
- Unclean environment, leading to hospital infections
- Malfunctioning or nonfunctional medical equipment
Hospitals will cover up their mistakes and claim that the resulting medical issue is due to some behavior of a disease or other factor. If you believe that the hospital and its staff were the cause of your injury or an injury to a loved one, you have the right and the responsibility to speak up.
It is important to note that bringing a medical malpractice lawsuit does not just benefit you. By forcing hospitals and emergency rooms to reevaluate their procedures, training methods and hiring practices, a lawsuit may prevent these mistakes from occurring to someone else in the future.
