OB-GYN under fire for death of pregnant woman's child

A patient's medical history is a crucial piece of information that medical professionals use to both diagnose and treat a patient in the most accurate and appropriate way possible. Certain prior medical problems can even be used to help predict potential future problems, allowing New Jersey physicians to keep a watchful eye on a patient or even advise proactive measures. Unfortunately, one state's medical board believes that an obstetrician failed to take a patient's previous medical conditions into account when caring for her during her pregnancy. The state's medical board also appears to believe that his negligence led to the death of her newborn. 

Couple claims that failure to do a timely C-section caused injury

Parents in another state recently filed a medical malpractice suit against the hospital that delivered their son, claiming that it gave false information concerning the safety of a certain birthing practice. The couple chose to have a water birth, but they now claim that injuries occurred to their son because of a failure to do a timely C-section. New Jersey parents who have suffered through a similar tragedy retain the right to file a claim as well.

A failure to diagnose may require quick and effective action

Whether it's just developed or is in one of its final stages, being diagnosed with cancer can feel devastating. Discovering you have cancer doesn't have to be a death sentence, as a timely diagnosis can result in treatment that is often successful, allowing New Jersey patients to go on to live full and healthy lives. Unfortunately, a failure to diagnose cancer in a timely manner can leave some victims without many options or hope. 

Patient blames amputations on a failure to diagnose

When a New Jersey patient is seriously injured by negligent mistakes, it's not just the victim that suffers. His or her family is also often adversely affected. An out-of-state woman believes that she is the victim of such mistakes that occurred during multiple trips to the emergency room. The patient claims that the failure to diagnose the serious infection that she had resulted in the amputation of her limbs. She has since filed a medical malpractice suit against the hospital that she visited.
