What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical care providers help save lives and help people get on with their lives. But sometimes, health care providers make mistakes which cause patients unnecessary harm. Sometimes medications don’t work properly or work improperly when combined with other medications.
Sometimes new medical techniques like robotic surgery cause injuries because the robot doesn’t function properly. Hospitals may not train their staff properly. Communication errors can cause the wrong procedure to be performed. Errors can occur because of a failure to properly diagnose your condition or to properly warn you of the complications.
If you suspect your injuries or those of a loved one were caused by poor medical care, you need to consult a skilled personal injury lawyer.
Types Of Medical Malpractice Injuries
- Birth injuries such as birth defects
- Brain injuries
- Emergency room injuries
- Orthopedic problems – bones and muscles that don’t work like they should
- Nerve injuries
- Diseases caused because of medical error
What Damages Can A Patient Get?
In order to recover, a claimant has to show the health care provider’s conduct deviated from the applicable standard of care, and that the particular deviation caused the patient’s injuries. Showing fault can be especially difficult in medical cases because it often requires medical testimony. At Garber Law, P.C., we work with medical experts and with legal experts to combat the medical provider and their lawyers. If fault can be proven, then the patient is entitled to seek the following damages:
- Compensatory damages – These are the patient’s monetary losses. They include medical bills, medical equipment, medications, therapy and lost wages.
- Noneconomic damages – These are the damages and losses that can’t be directly traced to a medical bill or monetary figure. The most common non-economic damage is pain and suffering. We will ask for the physical and mental pain and suffering you’re entitled to receive, to cover your condition for the rest of your life. We will also pursue damages for permanent injury and disfigurement.
- Punitive damages – In cases of egregious wrongs victims may be entitled to punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer and to make sure the wrongful conduct doesn’t happen again.
Medical Care Providers Who May Be Liable
A doctor who makes a mistake that causes you harm may not be the only one responsible. We will work to determine all the people and businesses that might be liable, such as:
- Nursing homes
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Medical equipment manufacturers and retailers
- Marketing companies for the medical profession
Statutes of Limitations for Medical Malpractice in New Jersey
If you have been injured as a result of medical malpractice, you should speak with a New Jersey medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible to get the process of seeking compensation started. The statute of limitations on filing a medical malpractice lawsuit in New Jersey is two years. This period begins from the date that the malpractice was discovered or occurred.

This means that it will begin while you are still recovering in hospital.
