There is a statute of limitations that exists for all medical malpractice cases in New Jersey, and your case for injury recovery will be stronger the quicker you seek experienced legal counsel. Call us today at 800-394-2700 toll free or 973-383-2700 to schedule a meeting.
Before Accepting Any Settlement, Speak With An Attorney — Know Your Legal Rights
It is rare that a health care facility will admit wrongdoing when an error made by your obstetrician, delivery team or other medical professional causes a birth injury, but your own health insurance company could offer you compensation as well if you file an injury claim. It is important to speak with one of our attorneys before making any statement on the record to an insurance company representative.
Establish The Full Value Of Injuries And Long-Term Needs
The only way the full value of your case will be established is by consulting with an experienced and accomplished attorney who has the resources to fully investigate and aggressively pursue the maximum compensation that you deserve.
When you are dealing with any of the following types of malpractice, it is critical that you pursue the full value of your case, incorporating near- and long-term damages and losses:
- Lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during birth (anoxia or hypoxia)
- Improper fetal heart or vital sign monitoring
- Delayed cesarean section
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia or Erb’s palsy
- Injuries to the mother
Our Sussex County birth injury attorneys will handle all aspects of your case, and we will fight for your full and fair recovery.
