New Jersey Medical Malpractice Lawyers
Representing those injured by medical negligence throughout the state.
Medical malpractice occurs more often than most patients would realize. Medical malpractice is a legal term that refers to situations in which a patient suffers injuries due to a medical professional's negligence, whether inflicted through inadequate medical care or a medical professional deviating from the proper standard of procedure.
When a patient agrees to a medical procedure, they put their full trust in the nurse or doctor performing their treatment. It is a breach of a patient's trust when the medical professional is negligent during treatments or care that result in the patient being injured. If you or a loved one suffered injuries due to suspected medical malpractice or medical negligence in New Jersey, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.
In New Jersey, medical malpractice lawsuits are built around the state statues. The New Jersey statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice lawsuit is two years, meaning an injured patient has up to two years from the date their injuries are realized to file their claim for compensation. In addition to an injured patient filing their medical malpractice claim within two years of the realized injury, the patient must also be able to provide proof that the medical party acted negligently and without their negligence, their injuries would not have occurred.
Undergoing a medical procedure is an overwhelming ordeal to start, adding unexpected injuries on top of the procedure makes the situation almost unbearable for patients. Medical malpractice lawsuits are complicated cases that require specific facts to be present for the lawsuit claim to be eligible, which can be difficult for an injured patient to decipher on their own. This is where the experience of Rinaldo and Rinaldo steps in to relieve our clients of the burden of collecting the evidence to file their malpractice claim following all New Jersey state statutes.
