A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. In terms of what you should do, one option you have is to reach out to New Jersey med mal attorneys to discuss further. If a law firm felt they could pursue a viable case on your behalf, they could retrieve your records and review with a medical professional. The things that you mention in terms of a duty of medical care, your damages, etc. are elements that would require a medical opinion. You could search for attorneys on your own, or you could use the tab above (Find-a-Lawyer). Most law firms that work in this field offer free initial consults and work on a contingency basis - that's between you and the firms you reach out to. With virtual consults that many firms are offering these days, it might be possible to initially discuss without leaving your home. Good luck
