What Should People Who Have Been Injured Look for in a Hamilton, NJ, Medical Malpractice Attorney?
JJS has decades of proven experience with delivering historic justice for those who have been harmed in catastrophic medical injury cases. Whether the malpractice is a result of negligence, recklessness, or outright misconduct on the part of healthcare providers, these cases are never easy on the plaintiffs, and they are rarely resolved quickly. Victims of negligent care need to feel confident that they will receive personal attention and long-term support from their legal team.
For over 40 years, JJS has used its legal and medical knowledge to advocate for injured clients across New Jersey and the United States. This support begins with a thorough investigation of the circumstances of each injury.
- Investigating the evidence: JJS’s malpractice team uses their medical knowledge and investigative resources to determine what the evidence of injury shows, as well as what additional evidence is needed to demonstrate the full extent of the injury and its causes to a jury. When JJS builds a malpractice case, we pursue the truth, working collaboratively with our network of trusted experts and investigators. In previous cases, JJS’s investigative process has even led to discovering evidence other attorneys missed. As is needed in these kinds of complex cases, JJS enlists leading industry experts to review and examine clients’ injuries to build strong cases on their behalf.
- Calculating the damages: Experienced medical malpractice attorneys like those at JJS have a deep understanding of the full financial implications of the medical and care needs of those who have been injured by major medical errors. In building a case that seeks to recover the full extent of damages stemming from negligence, JJS uses a variety of invaluable resources, which includes our in-house medical experts.
However, medical malpractice law firms also must have the financial resources themselves to stay the course. Major malpractice cases that seek to recover damages for catastrophic injuries can take years, but inexperienced and underfunded malpractice firms often accept settlements that are unfairly low early on. This is often because their team is not financially equipped to take these cases to trial on a contingency basis.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
The pursuit of damages for serious medical malpractice injuries can be difficult for an inexperienced legal team to calculate completely. It is important to leave no stone unturned when examining the many ways malpractice injuries impact victims’ lives.
- Medical expenses. The most obvious impact is the extensive medical bills that are the consequence of medical errors. These bills are often far beyond the scope of what injured victims and their families can reasonably handle. The costs of inpatient treatment, surgeries, emergency room visits, medication, and medical devices, rehabilitative care, and much more create a financial burden that is overwhelming and often impossible to recover from. In the most serious malpractice cases, injuries often result in a lifetime of medical and care needs. This can include adaptive equipment, ongoing treatments, and caregiver assistance, among other needs.
- Lost wages and earning capacity. Medical malpractice suits can seek to recover compensation for an individual’s actual lost wages or compensate victims, even victims of birth injuries, for the future wages that will be almost certainly lost as a result of their reduced or eliminated earning capacity.
- Non-economic damages. Non-economic losses can also be recovered through malpractice suits. These losses include victims’ pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, and emotional distress. JJS’s legal team has the experience to fully calculate the immense value of these non-economic damages for presentation before a jury or at the settlement table.
