What Should People Look for in a Jersey City, NJ, Medical Malpractice Attorney?
Medical malpractice cases involving severe injury are not easy, and they are not quickly resolved. When selecting a medical malpractice law firm to represent victims in these cases, clients will need to consider the level of experience and support they will get from their attorneys.
- Investigating the evidence: To provide the strongest representation for victims of catastrophic medical malpractice, we thoroughly investigate the facts of victims’ injuries, and our attorneys have the legal and medical knowledge to truly understand the evidence of negligence we discover through patients’ medical records, witness interviews, and laboratory results.
- Calculating the costs: Lawyers who represent victims injured by negligent medical practitioners must also understand the scope of patients’ current and future financial needs when it comes to their medical care. Our team includes a network of trusted medical experts with the knowledge and experience to support this understanding of the scope of injuries and the level of care they require.
JJS also has the resources to stay the course when it comes to complex malpractice cases while inexperienced, underfunded firms may push clients to take unfairly low settlements early in the legal process.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice in Jersey City?
JJS works to help clients recover financial compensation for the damages that have been inflicted upon them by the very people who were supposed to have been caring for them.
- Medical expenses. Medical malpractice victims should not have to be financially responsible for their past, current, or future medical bills resulting from their medical professionals’ negligence. Whether those bills include emergency room visits, inpatient treatment, surgeries, or even a lifetime of medical care, malpractice claims can seek financial recovery for the costs they have already been responsible for—and the bills to come.
- Loss of wages or earning capacity. The severe injuries caused by medical providers’ negligent actions impact victims' ability to do their jobs, generally forever. When injury impacts victims’ ability to earn a living to support themselves and their families, they can seek financial compensation for lost wages and even future earnings.
- Non-economic losses. New Jersey medical malpractice laws allow victims of medical errors to seek an unlimited amount of compensation for their non-economic damages, in addition to the actual costs of the injury. These kinds of non-economic damages often include compensation for pain and suffering and diminished quality of life. Experienced malpractice attorneys will be able to best calculate the amount of compensation to seek for these non-economic damages.

- $18 Million for Medication Error. This settlement against a pharmacy was for a medical error that resulted in the incorrect medication being dispensed to a pregnant mother. The pharmacy’s negligence caused the mother’s child to develop a neural tube defect, which resulted in paraplegia and other severe injuries.
