Hospital negligence allegedly led to patient's complications

When an unexpected and devastatingly painful injury arises from negligent provider care during or after a surgery, New Jersey patients are typically able to achieve related compensation through the successful navigation of a medical malpractice claim. Alleging hospital negligence and an overall failure to adhere to the accepted standard of care, an out-of-state woman is suing the doctor that operated on her jaw. The hospital where the procedure took place has also been named as a defendant.

Woman blames failure to do a timely C-section for son's death

Fetal monitoring is a standard aspect of modern labor and, when used correctly, is likely responsible for countless favorable outcomes of the birthing process. Ignoring the warning signs that a fetal monitor can provide can have devastating outcomes, from fetal distress to infant brain damage. A woman who labored and delivered at a hospital outside of New Jersey believes that negligent fetal monitoring practices contributed to a failure to do a timely C-section, ultimately resulting in the death of her child. 

Wrongful life suit could benefit infants born with brain damage

Adequate and attentive prenatal care is an essential aspect for most health pregnancies. What constitutes proper care can differ from patient to patient, as one mother's age might necessitate prenatal testing while another woman could possibly require extra visits or ultrasounds due to a pre-existing medical condition. When an attending obstetrician is negligent in providing care, ultimately resulting in serious injury or brain damage in a newborn, compensation through a medical malpractice suit is often the most appropriate course of legal action for parents to take. Unfortunately, when it comes to pregnant military members, serving their country can make it much more difficult to seek recourse.

Surgery gone wrong blamed for victim's permanent injury

For many New Jersey workers who are passionate about what they do, their careers are an integral aspect of who they are. Sadly, a man in a nearby state claims that he lost the ability to really do what he loves after a misdiagnosis resulted in a devastating surgery gone wrong. After making his case in front a jury, he was awarded over $4 million in compensation.
