Girl's infant brain damage prompts parent's lawsuit

When compared to full-term newborns, premature babies typically require more astute observation and cautious care. If an appropriate standard of care is not provided, New Jersey parents may be devastated to later learn of infant brain damage that could potentially affect a child's development and health for years to come. A mother from another state claims something strikingly similar, and blames the hospital for her daughter's developmental delays.

Despite alleged surgery gone wrong, clinic remains open

The clinic where an attending physician allegedly performed an unauthorized and unplanned biopsy on the late Joan Rivers is still open and treating patients. Despite the aftermath and investigation that the surgery gone wrong spurred, neither the clinic nor any of its workers have been officially charged with any crime related to Rivers' death. Families of New Jersey patients who have fallen victim to a surgical error may be able to seek compensation on their behalf.

What if the new Apple Watch causes a failure to diagnose?

While to some it may appear to little more than app-laden watch, Apple claims that it can do so much more, including replacing healthcare workers. Now, some experts are wondering whether Apple might have to face medical malpractice claims if it's new watch makes or causes a failure to diagnose.

What can cause brain damage in a newborn?

The birth of a child is usually the most joyous occasion in any parent's life. However, when a birth injury causes significant brain damage to a newborn, a moment that was meant to be cherished for a lifetime can quickly become tragic. If parents in New Jersey suspect that their child was injured due to an attending obstetrician or other health care provider's failure to act, they may choose to seek compensation through a medical malpractice claim.
