Supposed failure to diagnose cancer may have led to man's death

Losing a loved one to cancer can be exceptionally difficult for any New Jersey family. Recently, two women from another state in the United States alleged that a clinic acted negligently by the failure to diagnose cancer in one of their family members. They claim that this ultimately led to his death, which may have been avoided if he had been diagnosed correctly.

Negligence may have played a role in serious birth injury

The birth of a child is usually the most joyous occasion in a New Jersey parent’s life. However, when negligence may have resulted in harm to a child during delivery, the implications can be serious and sometimes even life-long. One mother believes that her daughter’s permanent condition was caused by the doctor who delivered her, and claims that he should have performed a C-section after it was realized that they were dealing with shoulder dystocia, an emergency in which an infant’s shoulders are not quickly delivered after the head.

Failure to diagnose tick-related illness may have caused death

Certain illnesses appear to become more prevalent during warm weather, such as those related to bug bites from insects like mosquitoes or ticks. The failure to diagnose an illness related to such a bite can have serious consequences for New Jersey patients. In May 2014, a young girl was bit by a tick and began to suffer related symptoms shortly after.

Hospital negligence apparently led to veteran's death

New Jersey men and women who put on a uniform to serve their country may expect to have their healthcare needs addressed in a timely manner, even after they take off the uniform. However, Department of Veteran's Affair medical centers apparently have a history of failing to adequately serve veterans' needs. Hospital negligence may have played a role in some individual's lack of proper care.
