We also review these medical negligence cases with doctors who critically assess the merits of each claim. This careful and thorough review of medical malpractice claims has allowed us to represent individuals and families harmed by medical negligence and obtain successful case results on their behalf.

- Delayed diagnosis of cancer
- Surgical errors
- Improper prescription medications
- Birth injury from labor and delivery errors

- Wide variety of other doctor and hospital malpractice claims
It is critical that anyone seeking a lawyer to handle a medical malpractice case insist upon learning the firm’s experience bringing these types of claims to a jury. Too often, law firms claim to handle medical malpractice lawsuits but simply do not have experience needed to successfully represent clients.
Among our recognitions, medical malpractice lawyer Donald G. Targan, our senior partner, is selected as among the Best Lawyers in America and as a Super Lawyer in the field of medical negligence. This Super Lawyer designation is limited to fewer than 50 attorneys in New Jersey. His knowledge of the law and our commitment to upholding the rights of those who suffered severe or fatal injuries at the hands of negligent medical professionals has allowed us to recover the compensation medical malpractice victims deserve and need to begin the recovery process.
Case Examples from Our Medical Malpractice Lawyer in Atlantic City and Cape May
Our Atlantic City medical malpractice lawyers have represented hundreds of clients involved in medical malpractice lawsuits from intake to trial, and even in cases where our attorneys took their lawsuits all the way to the New Jersey Supreme Court. We have gained multimillion-dollar malpractice settlements and verdicts for our clients and the harm medical negligence caused them.
We obtained a $5.9 million verdict against an obstetrician with a history of problems. Ignoring signs of clear fetal distress, the doctor delayed performing a C-section for over 2 hours. The child suffered brain injury and cerebral palsy from the lack of oxygen and will never be able to live independently.
In another case, this same obstetrician negligently failed to order a simple pelvic test that would have shown the child was too large for a natural birth. Instead, the child’s skull was crushed during breach delivery. The doctor also failed to respond to fetal distress during delivery. This deprived the baby of oxygen and resulted in a severe brain injury and cerebral palsy. This case also resulted in a substantial recovery for our client.
Another case involving a birth injury was against an Atlantic City obstetrician who ignored warnings provided to doctors concerning a prescription medication. This obstetrician had failed his medical board several times and never obtained Board Certification. Doctors were warned not to provide this medication to pregnant women, especially in their third trimester. The defendant doctor provided the dangerous medication. Further, the doctor failed to monitor the patient during this time and ignored early warning signs of fetal distress. As a result, the baby was born with brain damage and a destroyed kidney. The jury returned a verdict in favor of our client within 45 minutes of deliberation. The verdict was for $3.5 million.
In another matter, an Atlantic County jury awarded a $3.3 million verdict to our client, who was negligently injured during the course of a routine procedure. The injury cut off blood flow to the patient’s kidney. Our client lost a kidney due to this negligence. The Appellate Division upheld the verdict in favor of our client.
