The Statute of Limitations of a medical malpractice in New Jersey case is 2 years. That means you need to file a claim within 2 years of the time of the negligence. However, with medical malpractice, you often don’t realize that you’ve been a victim of medical malpractice for some time.
We have in this state what’s called a discovery rule. The medical malpractice discovery rule means that the statute of limitations begins to run at the time that the patient knew or should have known of the medical malpractice claim.
If you suspect that you or a loved one has been the victim of malpractice it's important to consult with a qualified NJ malpractice attorney as soon as is feasible.
