What Should You Look for in a St. Paul Medical Malpractice Attorney?
When you hire JJS to represent you in your lawsuit, you get decades of successfully delivered, historic justice for people who have suffered tremendously. But malpractice cases are not easy, and they are not usually resolved quickly. Insurance companies and healthcare facilities will often try to drag out cases to wear down patients, which can make malpractice lawsuits tough on victims.
When selecting a law firm to represent your case, you want to be confident that you will receive long-term support from your lawyer from day one. JJS does not wait until we arrive at the settlement table or the courtroom to begin representing our clients to the fullest extent of available resources. Working with JJS means you can count on representation driven by knowledge and experience, so we can build a case that takes into account all necessary factors.
- What the evidence says. In building your case, we will thoroughly investigate the facts. We have the medical knowledge and resources needed to pursue the truth. With our support, you will have the chance to get not only financial recovery for the harm done to you but also answers that can help you heal.
- What your treatment costs. Lawyers who represent medical malpractice clients must be able to grasp the scope of patients’ current and future needs fully when it comes to their medical care and treatments. When preparing a case that seeks to recover the appropriate amount in compensation, we bring in all possible resources, including our in-house medical experts, to help us calculate the maximum recovery for your case.
- What it takes to fight all the way. Taking on a case against big insurance companies or healthcare organizations can be stressful for victims for many reasons, and it can be expensive. The law firm you choose will need to have the financial resources to build the strongest case possible, which can be a long process. An inexperienced, underfunded firm may have to push clients to take low settlements early in the legal process, and they may not be prepared to take your case to trial if a fair settlement cannot be reached.
How Can Janet, Janet & Suggs Help Victims of Medical Malpractice?
When seeking recovery for St. Paul medical malpractice victims, JJS helps clients fight to recover financial compensation for the legal damages inflicted upon them.
- Medical expenses. You should not have to be responsible for medical bills that resulted from your medical provider’s negligence. Those bills may include emergency room visits, inpatient treatment, surgeries, or even a lifetime of medical care. Malpractice claims can also seek damages for your future medical expenses.
- Loss of wages or earning capacity. The injuries inflicted by malpractice can impact your ability to do your job, sometimes permanently. When an injury impacts your ability to earn a living, you can seek financial compensation for your lost wages. In some cases, compensation for wages you are now prevented from earning in the future as a result of your medical provider’s negligence may be available.
- Non-economic losses. Minnesota law grants victims of malpractice the right to seek compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering and diminished quality of life. Experienced malpractice attorneys know how to best calculate the amount of compensation to seek.

In Minnesota, the statute of limitations for a medical malpractice suit is very strict, in most cases requiring that plaintiffs file their lawsuit within four years of the date of injury or negligent act. Not only should you speak with an attorney as soon as you suspect something is wrong, but the more time that passes, the harder it might be to win your case, even if you are within the statute of limitations. Acting swiftly can help you to protect your rights and will give your lawyer a better chance to help you win your case.
