Why Are These Rankings Important?

Medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. according to researchers from Johns Hopkins University, just behind heart disease and cancer. As one of New Jersey's top medical malpractice law firms, our lawyers at Mintz & Geftic always pay close attention to these reports. 

As New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers we recognize that the vast majority of doctors are highly trained and truly dedicated to their patients. However, doctors (like all of us) are human and mistakes can and do occur. Unfortunately, unlike in some other professions, just a little mistake can have fatal results when it comes to the field of medicine. Even the very best doctors will likely make a few mistakes over the course of a long career, which is why they purchase medical malpractice insurance to protect themselves and their patients when a mistake or accident happens.
