Filing Med Mal Claim in New Jersey

Few things are more devastating than the consequences of medical malpractice. Doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and other professionals save countless lives every day. However, only a second of distraction, fatigue, or negligence can lead to an incident of oversight that changes a patient’s life forever. If you or someone you care about is suffering physically, financially, and/or emotionally after an event that you believe to be medical malpractice, it’s likely that you have a lot of unanswered questions. This can be an overwhelming time, but getting the right information can help you decide what the best solution is for you.

Breach of Duty & Trust in New Jersey

Medical professionals are expected to uphold a high standard of care when diagnosing and treating patients. If a doctor or nurse fails to fulfill this responsibility and a medical error results in injury, illness, or death, this may be considered medical malpractice. Determining whether you have a medical malpractice case may require the assistance of an attorney who can thoroughly examine the details surrounding the incident as well as the evidence. It may seem obvious to you that a doctor or nurse was negligent, but proof is still necessary on top of several other requirements for filing a claim or pursuing a lawsuit.

Seeking Damages in NJ

Unfortunately, the scope of economic and non-economic damages after an incident of medical malpractice can be limitless. The process of calculating monetary damages alone is often lengthy when considering past and especially future expenses. Most of the time, putting a dollar amount on the effects of trauma, loss of companionship, and emotional distress is impossible; however, for the sake of the law, this difficult step may be necessary as well.

Because medical malpractice can cause a specific medical condition to worsen or a new complication to develop, the economic damages that an injured patient may be entitled to often relate to surgery costs, hospital stays, medications, physical therapy fees, and other expenses. A medical malpractice claim or lawsuit may help you or your loved one obtain compensation to ensure that proper medical care is received for adequate treatment and rehabilitation. Medical evidence is key in this area of a case to demonstrate the quality of life a person will have as well as whether he or she will need medical and/or psychological treatment for months or years to come, or for the rest of his or her life.

When an individual dies as the result of medical malpractice, surviving family members may be entitled to damages for loss of consortium, funeral expenses, pain and suffering, medical fees, and other expenses. No amount of money can undo what has happened, but justice often helps bring families closure and helps relieve financial strain as a result of the loss of a loved one who used to provide for the family.
