Customer Question

re: medical malpractice/disclosure (physician & hospital):   as you know, when we go to any physician, we are, by law, provided with a privacy statement.    when this is violated, completely without a patient's prior knowledge and/or consent, causing extremely serious emotional and financial results, what is a patient's recourse? i would like to present this matter to an attorney in the ocean county, new jersey area. a recommendation would be appreciated.

Greetings:


Of my experience, there is possible legal recourse - however, as in any case, it depends if actual damage has been incurred..for which you state it has caused extreme serious emotional and financial results - or, perhaps this was in error. Regardless, you can consult with an attorney who can advise you accordingly - after he/she has had a chance to review any and all documentation and discuss this in detail with you.


In order to obtain such attorney referral, you may wish to consult with the State Bar in New Jersey, their address, number and website is as follows:
