Medical Malpractice Defense

Bubb, Grogan & Cocca, LLP has significant experience representing New Jersey and New York health care providers in medical malpractice defense litigation concerning negligence, wrongful death, and informed consent.

Knowledgeable Defense Counsel for Health Care Providers

Our firm has successfully defended physicians, hospitals, health care facilities, and other treatment providers in litigation arising from patient claims of negligent care. We have shown that our client performed as a reasonable medical professional would have done in the same situation, and/or that the treatment did not result in the patient's condition or injury. Our attorneys are qualified to handle claims involving allegations of:

  • Surgical errors
  • Prescription drug errors
  • Cosmetic surgery malpractice
  • Birth injuries and obstetric malpractice
  • Emergency room malpractice
  • Failure to foresee complications
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Delayed diagnosis

In addition to defending clients against negligent treatment claims, we have experience defending health care providers facing wrongful death actions. Wrongful death actions are generally brought by the heirs, dependents, and/or estate of a deceased person, with the goal of compensating survivors for the financial and emotional loss of their family member. Our attorneys possess the legal skill to effectively defend against wrongful death actions, combining strong defense tactics and sensitivity to professionally and successfully handle these claims.

Our firm also has specific experience defending doctors, physicians, and hospitals in claims involving informed consent. A patient may base a medical malpractice claim on the theory that a health care professional did not provide adequate information regarding a proposed medical procedure or treatment. We have successfully handled informed consent cases by showing that our client properly informed the patient of the risks and benefits of a given treatment; that our client acted in an emergency situation; and/or that the medical outcome would have been the same regardless of the presence or lack of consent.
