In New Jersey, victims of medical malpractice have two (2) years from the day they were injured to file a malpractice claim against their doctor, nurse, or hospital. However, in circumstances where you would not have been able to tell if harm occurred (e.g. failure to diagnose), the window of time resets to two (2) years from the date of discovery. Once your window closes, you will have no way of claiming damages from your health care provider.
The strict deadlines for medical malpractice cases, combined with their complexity and the time-consuming nature of most cases, makes taking quick action vital. Call a lawyer as soon as possible to review your case—a New Jersey medical malpractice attorney would be able to understand if you have a viable claim, what can be done to fight for your damages, and what you need to do first.
It’s Time to Be Honest about Medical Mistakes
Successful medical malpractice verdicts are rare because hospitals don’t want their mistakes being made public—not because malpractice is rare. Studies from the Department of Health and Human Services found that treatment errors and mistakes are only reported in 14% of cases. In other words, nearly 9 in 10 mistakes are never reported to the patient. In another study, the Journal of the American Medical Association found that medical negligence was the third-leading cause of death in the U.S.
When patients try to file medical malpractice claims, they’re facing a well-prepared litigation machine designed to limit your compensation, keep you quiet, and hold no one responsible for what happened to you. To fight the hospital or medical provider you’ll need a firm that’s well-versed in representing medical malpractice cases. You need our New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
