Woodland Park Medical Malpractice
Woodland Park residents may be accustomed to a peaceful and tranquil existence, but nothing can shatter that existence for you and for your family quite like a medical malpractice incident. Acts of medical malpractice can wreak havoc on you and your health for years after the injury has occurred. In some cases, the harm caused by medical malpractice may be irreversible. What is more, any doctor, nurse, or other medical professional is capable of committing an act of malpractice.

Call us today to learn more.Compensation Available in a Woodland Park Medical Malpractice Lawsuit
Pursuant to New Jersey Statutes Section 2A:14-2, an injured patient must bring a claim for damages following a medical malpractice incident within two years of the date the patient either knew or should have known that he or she had, in fact, suffered an injury. Depending on the complexity of your medical malpractice claim as well as whether your suit settles or proceeds to trial, a medical malpractice case may take months or even years to resolve.
Upon a successful resolution, however, the injured patient may be able to recover monetary damages that are meant to address his or her:
- Medical costs and expenses, which would include not only compensation for the botched surgery or procedure that caused the harm but also for any reparative treatments or surgeries that the patient may require as a result. If the patient requires ongoing treatment costs, these may be compensated, too.
- Lost wages due to time the patient must miss from work. In addition, if the patient cannot return to work or must accept a position that pays less as a result of the medical malpractice, this reduction in pay can also be compensated.
- Pain and suffering the patient experienced as a result of the malpractice.
- Other expenses and losses attributable to the malpractice.
