Top New Jersey Medical Negligence Lawyers Fight for Injured Victims
Dedicated attorneys with a focus on negotiation and litigation
When you visit the doctor, it is with the hope of feeling better. That hope is typically accompanied by an expectation you will receive quality care and an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. A recent study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine reports that medical errors are a leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, these mistakes account for more than 250,000 deaths each year. Knowing your rights as a patient — as well as your physician’s duties — is important, particularly if you are considering pursuing a medical claim. The leading New Jersey medical malpractice attorneys at Lomurro Law have more than 130 years combined experience handling medical malpractice and negligence cases. We are skilled at both negotiation and litigation in fighting on behalf of injured victims.
Medical negligence and medical malpractice
Medical negligence is one required component of a legally valid medical malpractice claim. It is important to note that medical negligence alone does not merit a claim. Only when medical negligence is the basis for an injury to a patient is there the possibility of good cause for a medical malpractice claim. If you believe you have received inadequate or improper medical care, the first step is to contact the original medical professional directly. There may be a solution to the issues you are experiencing. If your situation cannot be remedied, seek immediate medical assistance. Keep all medical records and document communication.
How much time do I have to file a medical malpractice claim in NJ?
As soon as possible after your injury, seek the advice and counsel of an experienced medical malpractice attorney. Medical malpractice liability may be the result of receiving improper treatment, misdiagnosis, or by receiving treatment without the proper permission. In the state of New Jersey, the statute of limitations – the time an individual has to file a claim in court after the harm was inflicted — is two years. On some medical malpractice claims, a notice must be filed within 90 days of the act of malpractice to preserve the claim. So it is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after sustaining an injury due to medical negligence.
