If you have been harmed due to a health care provider’s negligence, our New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers at Ellis Law are here to help.

What Is Medical Malpractice?

People trust their medical providers with their health and their family members’ health. Medical malpractice pertains to the failings of health care providers that lead to preventable injuries. The doctor or other medical professional must have deviated from accepted standards of medical practice, either through an action or inaction. A medical malpractice lawsuit can be filed with the help of an experienced lawyer to hold health care providers and medical facilities accountable for injuries caused by their negligence.

What Are Common Types of Medical Malpractice?

Medical malpractice can take many forms, all of which can be life-changing if not life-threatening.

The following are some of the most common types of medical malpractice:

  • Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
  • Birth injuries
  • Surgical errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Medication errors
  • Neglect or abuse

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Filing a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit in New Jersey?

You have two years to file a medical malpractice claim in New Jersey. The clock typically starts ticking when a medical mistake or injury occurs; however, New Jersey also subscribes to a discovery rule that pauses the statute of limitations until the person discovers the medical error or should have discovered it.

Whom Can I Sue in a Medical Malpractice Case?

Medical malpractice cases are often complex, involving multiple negligent health care providers. It is common for more than one party to be held responsible in medical malpractice lawsuits.

The following defendants can be held liable in a medical malpractice case:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Hospitals
  • Technicians and aides
  • Therapists
  • Chiropractors
  • Optometrists
  • Pharmacists
  • Laboratories
  • Outpatient medical facilities

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Know If I Have a Medical Malpractice Case?

A medical malpractice case typically involves expert medical testimony to show that no reasonable healthcare provider would have acted, or failed to act, the way that yours did. It must also be proved through expert testimony that the health care provider’s negligence was a cause of your injury or death of your family member.

How Much Does a Medical Malpractice Lawyer Cost?

Our New Jersey medical malpractice lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means you pay nothing upfront until we win a financial award for your case.

How Long Does a Medical Malpractice Case Take?

Every case is different. However, many medical malpractice cases can take up to two years or more. If it is a case that can be settled out of court, it may be able to be resolved in under a year.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive in a Medical Malpractice Case?

A lawyer can fight to help you obtain compensation for current and future medical expenses, extensive therapies, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and wrongful death. If there is extremely bad behavior on the part of a healthcare provider, there may also be punitive damages.
