A: Sounds like you may have a case for malpractice or maybe even assault much more information would be needed however I would suggest setting up a consultation with an experienced lawyer.
A consultation with an attorney who could review your medical records in detail would be a good starting point.
A: I’m so sorry to hear about your experience. You should immediately consult an experienced New Jersey attorney who accepts medical malpractice cases, for a full case evaluation. You can easily find one of us on Justia. Most lawyers offer a free consultation. You have to take proper legal action in time to preserve your rights. Generally, lawsuits for medical malpractice in New Jersey have to be filed within two years from the date of the incident, or you would be forever barred from recovering compensation. But some cases have additional deadlines, as short as 90 days. Good luck.
