The team at Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC wants you to be aware of the statute of limitations for medical malpractice claims in New Jersey. Under this law, all lawsuits must begin within two years of the medical act in question. Failure to file a claim before this deadline could mean forfeiting your right to compensation.
Our medical malpractice lawyers are dedicated to winning damages on your behalf. Victims of this type of injury often receive both economic and non-economic damages. Economic compensation comes in the form of medical bills, lost wages, and anything else that has a clear monetary value. On the other hand, non-economic damages are more difficult to quantify. They account for reduced quality of life, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. When you consult with Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC, we can give you an idea of what kind of compensation you can expect.
