Victim blames surgery gone wrong on unqualified physician

When receiving treatment from a doctor, most New Jersey patients expect that he or she is properly certified to perform health care services. An out-of-state woman did not discover that the physician she had been seeing for years was not actually qualified to be a health care provider until a different doctor discovered serious damage from the previous procedures she underwent. More than one apparent surgery gone wrong resulted in permanent damage to her foot.

Woman's death blamed on unnecessary brain surgery

Imagine, for a moment, going to the hospital for one surgery, and then waking up having undergone a completely different procedure. For one family outside of New Jersey dealing with the death of a loved one, this is a difficult reality that they must confront. After the family won a medical malpractice suit against an out-of-state hospital that performed the wrong operation on their family member, a jury awarded the family $21 million.

Victim claims home nurses violated standards of care

The hospital, doctor's offices or nursing homes are not the only places where medical malpractice can occur. There are many patients in New Jersey who, instead of spending extended time in a hospital or moving to a residential nursing facility, remain in their own homes while receiving care from nurses. However, these home nurses are not immune from acting negligently, and two out-of-state home assistants have been accused of violating their patient's required standards of care

Victims deserve justice from hospital negligence and errors

The sheer number of technological advances that we enjoy every day can simply be astounding. While many of these advances improve the lives of people in New Jersey, human error during certain procedures can have devastating effects. Corrective eye surgery -- a procedure that is performed with astonishing frequency -- can leave some patients in a state worse than they started out in if hospital negligence occurred at any point during the procedure.

Hysterectomy-caused infection leads to medical malpractice suit

When a surgery that is supposed to help improve a patient's overall health leaves him or her in a worse condition, the victim can feel confused and uncertain about the future. One woman who underwent surgery at an out-of-state hospital claims that her hysterectomy caused an infection that left her in such severe pain that it impacted her ability to walk. She subsequently filed a medical malpractice suit against the surgeon who performed the operation, a course of action that victims in New Jersey also have the right to take.
