New Jersey Cancer Malpractice Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions about Cancer Misdiagnosis in New Jersey

 Who can be held liable for a cancer misdiagnosis?

While doctors are normally held liable for a cancer misdiagnosis, other healthcare professionals who may have liability for a misdiagnosis include nurses, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, radiology technicians, and lab technicians. In addition, hospitals or medical practices may also have liability for the negligent errors of their employees.

What is the statute of limitations on a cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit?

New Jersey’s statute of limitations on cancer misdiagnosis lawsuits requires you to file suit within the later of two years from the date that you received a misdiagnosis or two years from the date that you discovered that you suffered harm from a misdiagnosis. If you fail to timely file your lawsuit, your case can be permanently dismissed and you may lose your right to recover compensation. This makes it important to talk to a lawyer at DiTomaso Law as soon as possible to make sure that your claims are timely filed.
