The time limit for bringing a medical malpractice suit can vary, depending on the circumstances of the case. For example, if a patient goes to a hospital where there are public employees, such as University Hospital in New Brunswick or University Hospital in Newark, a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days. However, if the patient visited a regular, private doctor who is not a state employee, then the time limit for filing a notice of claim is two years.
The bottom line is that you should speak with a qualified medical malpractice lawyer before you make any final decisions about how to proceed. Contact Team Law anytime to discuss your case over the phone or to schedule a consultation at one of our conveniently located offices in New Jersey.
