Frequently Asked Questions about Medical Malpractice in Clifton, New Jersey 

How can I determine if a doctor or healthcare provider was negligent?

Proving doctor negligence requires a thorough evaluation of your medical records by medical experts. These experts often include healthcare professionals such as doctors or nurses of similar backgrounds and training as the healthcare professional whose actions are being reviewed. These medical experts will help to determine whether the healthcare professional or healthcare provider’s actions were acceptable. Their testimonies are required in proving that your injuries would not have occurred if the healthcare professional would have provided appropriate care.

We at The Epstein Law Firm, P.A. will provide you with expert testimony to support your claim. We will work with medical experts within our network to review your medical records and determine whether there was negligence.

How much time do I have to file a medical malpractice claim?

The statute of limitations in New Jersey for medical malpractice claims is two years. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, the period of the statute of limitations may be postponed if the victim had not reasonably discovered the injury when it occurred. The statute of limitations will in this case begin from the date of discovery of the injury. The statute of limitations may also be extended if the victim of the medical malpractice was under the age of 18 when the malpractice occurred. The statute of limitations will begin on the date that the victim turns 18. If negligence involved a birth injury, the malpractice claim must be filed before the child turns 13.

It is important to engage an experienced Clifton medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible. Your attorney will help ensure that you are not locked out by any deadlines.
