Medical Malpractice

Patients place an incredible amount of trust in doctors, nurses, and other healthcare personnel to provide quality medical care. When these professionals breach that trust by acting in a way that harms the patient, the effects can be catastrophic, and the negligent healthcare professional can be held legally and financially accountable for the patient’s injuries.  Hiring an experienced medical malpractice attorney is critical to proving the medical professional’s liability and recovering due compensation. If you’ve been harmed by a healthcare professional’s negligent behavior, our medical malpractice lawyers, located in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, can help. Contact Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, to schedule a free consultation with our experienced multilingual legal team.

Surgical Mistakes

Surgeries are inherently risky, and the risk of complications dramatically increases when an inexperienced or careless surgeon is operating. Common surgical errors include:

  • anesthesia errors
  • operating on the wrong patient
  • operating on the wrong area of the body
  • performing the wrong surgery
  • leaving a surgical instrument inside the patient’s body

Depending on the circumstances, surgical mistakes can lead to brain injuries, amputations, and wrongful death. Victims of surgical mistakes may be eligible to recover financial compensation from the party or parties responsible for their injuries. A medical malpractice attorney from our firm can review your case to determine whether you have a viable claim.

Birth Injuries

When a medical professional makes a mistake that causes complications during labor and delivery, newborns can sustain serious birth injuries that require significant treatment and rehabilitation. Common birth injuries include cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, shoulder dystocia, and brain, neck, and spinal cord injuries. If your child suffered a birth injury because of a negligent doctor’s actions, you could recover compensation to pay for medical treatment and other related expenses.

Misdiagnosis and Failure to Diagnose

Correct and timely diagnoses of medical conditions are vital to obtaining the proper treatment and care. Patients can suffer undue harm and complications related to a physician’s misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose. Commonly misdiagnosed conditions include appendicitis, certain cancers (e.g., breast, cervical, ovarian, prostate, and testicular), diabetes, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, and stroke. Physicians who incorrectly diagnose conditions that their competent peers would have been able to diagnose under the same circumstances should be held responsible for their mistakes; contact a lawyer at Vlasac & Shmaruk, LLC, to learn more about filing a medical malpractice claim.

Medication Errors

Doctors, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals (including nursing home employees) are responsible for ensuring that medications are prescribed, dispensed, and in some cases administered properly. If a patient takes the incorrect dosage, the wrong medication, or multiple drugs that dangerously interact with one another, the results can be deadly. If you have been injured, or a loved one has died from a medication error, we encourage you to contact our law firm to speak with one of our knowledgeable attorneys. You could be entitled to financial compensation for your injuries or for your loved one’s death.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
