Is There a Limitation on When I Can Bring My Misdiagnosis Lawsuit in NJ?
If you or a loved one have been misdiagnosed by a doctor in New Jersey, you should contact Attorney Roy Konray of Team Law today to find out about your options for filing a lawsuit and seeking compensation. Without the assistance of qualified legal counsel, you may not be aware of the time limits involved and you may not know how long you have before your NJ medical malpractice lawsuit is barred by the statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations in New Jersey medical malpractice cases can vary. For instance, the limitation for a failure to diagnose cancer case is two years from the date that the cancer was diagnosed. Ordinarily, a victim of doctor negligence has two years from the date of the medical malpractice. However, if there was no way that the patient could have known about the medical malpractice at the time of the medical treatment, then the statute of limitations doesn’t start until the patient becomes aware of the malpractice. Another twist on the law: if a public employee, such as a doctor at Robert Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ, caused the injury or illness, then a notice of claim must be made within 90 days.
