New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers
The New Jersey Medical Malpractice Attorneys law office of Weiss & Paarz is dedicated to ensuring clients get specialized representation for their difficult, complex medical malpractice claims. Some estimates claim that as many as 440,000 patients die each year as a result of preventable hospital errors. While we cannot turn back the clock to prevent these errors ourselves, we can use our unique knowledge and experience to help victims of medical malpractice obtain the compensation they need to move on and keep their families and financial futures intact. Our dedicated legal staff has been handling New Jersey medical malpractice claims exclusively for over three decades. We firmly believe in high-quality, thorough patient advocacy, as your New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers.

If you or a loved one has been injured because of a medical professional’s negligence / malpractice, it is crucial to choose an experienced attorney to handle your claim, as medical malpractice is a complex and increasingly difficult area of law.
Weiss & Paarz Gives – Southern New Jersey
Most of our team was born and raised in the Southern New Jersey area, so here at Weiss & Paarz, our team is constantly looking for opportunities to enhance our local community. We regularly contribute to local organizations set up to help Southern New Jersey residents and our staff deeply enjoys shopping for families in need during the holiday season. We’ve partnered with many organizations in the area, including but not limited to the Boys and Girls Club of Atlantic City, the Community Foodbank of New Jersey (Southern Branch), Operation Yellow Ribbon, and the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. By continuing to volunteer, offer local academic scholarships, put together donation boxes, and spread some holiday cheer, we are excited to continue making a positive, local impact in every way we can.
What are Negligence Claims?
Negligence claims refer to legal actions taken by individuals who have suffered harm or injury due to the negligence of another party, such as a healthcare professional or institution. Negligence claims typically arise when a healthcare provider fails to meet the accepted standard of care, resulting in a patient’s catastrophic injury. These claims involve establishing (1) a healthcare provider deviated from accepted standards of medical care when treating a patient; (2) the deviation increased the risk of harm to that patient; (3) the increased risk of harm created by the deviation was a substantial factor in the ultimate harm the patient suffered; (4) the patient was harmed. Since these cases are expensive to pursue, the injury typically has to be significant and permanent in order to obtain compensation after costs. Weiss & Paarz seek to help victims obtain compensation for their pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other types of harm due to negligence.
Medical Malpractice Damages
Various types of damages are recoverable depending upon the circumstances of a case in New Jersey medical malpractice litigation. Depending on what happened and the extent of harm suffered as a result, a medical malpractice plaintiff could be entitled to:
1. Economic Damages: These may include but are not necessarily limited to past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, lost benefits, and/or future diminished earning capacity.
2. Non-Economic Damages: These damages may include but are not necessarily limited to pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of consortium (spousal services, guidance, advice, and counsel).
3. Punitive Damages: In very rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded in New Jersey medical malpractice lawsuits. However, New Jersey has strict standards for granting punitive damages and they are only considered in cases involving willful misconduct or a wanton disregard for the patient’s safety.
