Professional Malpractice

Legal Malpractice | Medical Malpractice

When you think of the term “malpractice,” the first thing that usually comes to mind is a botched medical treatment. While malpractice most definitely occurs in the medical field, it can occur in the legal professions as well.

Malpractice is defined as “professional misconduct.” That conduct can be either intentional or unintentional, but the aftermath is the same: whether it is medical or legal malpractice, the victim suffers serious or significant physical or financial hardships. To recover damages for those hardships, you need the representation of an attorney experienced in malpractice suits.

Malpractice Laws

Laws outlining what constitutes an act of malpractice vary from state to state. Generally, however, it is not enough to be dissatisfied with the service you received to claim malpractice, and general mistakes will not constitute a malpractice action. Victor Rotolo is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. Anthony Kearns, Victor Rotolo and the other attorneys at the Firm are experienced in this area of law and ready to defend your case. To have a legitimate malpractice case you must first prove you suffered serious injury as a result of a specific action and that that action was, intentionally or unintentionally, an action that another professional in the field would not have performed under the same circumstances.

When you hire the services of a professional in either the healthcare or legal field, you have a certain expectation of results. When those services do not meet your expectations and, worse, result in physical or financial harm, your emotions can get in the way of you successfully attaining retribution. If you believe you are the victim of malpractice, you need an attorney to help you see the circumstances of your case clearly.

Elements of a Successful Malpractice Case

Two things are necessary to make a successful malpractice claim. First, you must prove that you sustained either a physical or monetary injury; and, second, that the injury resulted from the misconduct of a professional whose services you retained. Our experienced attorneys will defend your rights in court. They will research your case to determine if your injury was one that could have been avoided if the professional in question used higher standards, comparing that professional’s practices with those of similar professionals in his or her field.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
