✓ We are local and we KNOW Pennsylvania's system - Just because a firm gets a license to practice law here and buy up a bunch of bill boards around town doesn't mean that they have real experience fighting cases in NJ's legal system every day. We are a Marlton based firm with attorneys that focus on New Jersey injury cases. We eat, drink and breath this every day.

✓ Proprietary methods of case management for your very best client experience and ensure greater odds of success compared to high volume, low-touch firms.

There are many types of medical errors that might entitle an injured party to compensation. Serious mistakes can happen in many medical areas, such as:
Even the most experienced physicians can make a serious medical mistake, but not all adverse outcomes are considered malpractice. A Marlton medical malpractice lawyer who understands the impact of these types of errors may assist you in gathering the expert witnesses necessary to sustain a claim against a doctor, hospital, or provider.
Medical malpractice falls under the legal umbrella of negligence, but in New Jersey, there are specific laws that apply only to claims of medical error. General negligence cases in the state typically must be filed within two years of the injury. However, because it may take time for medical mistakes to become apparent, there is an exception to this statute of limitations for cases of medical malpractice, and certain cases may have longer than two years.
Marlton medical malpractice lawyers understand the prerequisites and filing deadlines in these medical negligence cases.
Before an individual can file a lawsuit, they must submit a “certificate of merit” to the court. This certificate should state that an “appropriate licensed professional” has reviewed the claim and believes there is a reasonable likelihood that the provider’s conduct fell outside the scope of acceptable professional standards. Once filed, either before or within 60 days of filing the lawsuit, the case can proceed.
The plaintiff has the burden of proving what the accepted medical standard of care is and that the physician in question breached that duty, resulting in harm. Medical malpractice claims require expert testimony from professionals who can establish the specific duty of care and offer an opinion as to how the defendant's doctor breached that standard. Since health care malpractice cases often involve grievous injuries or death, attorneys in Montgomery County must rely on the reports and testimony of experts to prove a case.
Filing a claim against a healthcare provider can be complicated. Our team of Marlton medical malpractice lawyers is ready to evaluate your case and offer guidance and support. Our team works to find experts, gather evidence, and provide expertise in navigating this challenging scenario. Schedule your case consultation today.
