New Jersey hospital negligence cases require actions from victims

Few people look forward to being admitted to a hospital, but they may find comfort in the thought that they will be in the hands of professionals who know what to do. Generally, New Jersey patients would expect quality care and look forward to recovering quickly. Unfortunately, there are cases where the health of a patient becomes worse, instead of better. In cases where hospital negligence is evident, the victims may consider filing for damages in order to hold those responsible accountable.

Failure to diagnose may have contributed to Ebola victim's death

Timing can be everything for certain illnesses or injuries. Any delay, whether from a failure to diagnose or negligence in providing adequate care or treatment, can result in far worse than further injury to New Jersey patients -- it can also result in death. While all of the factors in the death of the first patient to bring the deadly Ebola virus to the United States are still unclear, what is known is that he was initially misdiagnosed.

Jahi McMath, victim of surgery gone wrong, may not be brain dead

Most people likely remember when the apparently brain dead 13-year-old Jahi McMath was moved to a hospital in New Jersey. Although currently still on life support and under the care of her family, they claim that they have new evidence showing that her surgery gone wrong did not leave her wholly brain dead. If they are able to prove that this is true, any compensation from a medical malpractice claim could be affected.

Failure to diagnose cancer can have deadly results

Certain diseases and illnesses tend to have a small time frame for successful treatment. After that time frame has passed, treatment may become more difficult and severe and may even be less likely to be effective. Patients in New Jersey who have suffered from a failure to diagnose cancer may understand this better than most.
