Statute of Limitations in New Jersey

New Jersey has limited the amount of time in which an injured person can bring a medical malpractice claim, which, if not filed in a timely manner, the injured person would be forever barred from bringing a medical malpractice suit against the negligent medical provider. The time allowed to bring the medical malpractice claim is generally two years from the date of the injury.

However, there are exceptions to this rule which may extend the time allowed to bring a claim, such as the discovery doctrine or if the injured patient was under the age of 21 at the time of injury. An attorney at Riviere Advocacy Group LLC in Monmouth County, New Jersey and statewide can explain these time concerns with you.
