Did a drug error cause a death in your family? We can help

When used and prescribed correctly, prescription medication can be a valuable asset for treating a wide variety of illnesses and diseases. Unfortunately, no matter how effective or safe a drug might be in the correct situation, there is one aspect of prescription drugs that simply cannot be erased -- human error. Administering the incorrect medication or the wrong dosage to a patient can cause serious injuries and even lead to death.

Bernard Hicks blames university, former coach for brain damage

Most people who have been paying attention to the news in New Jersey are already familiar with the increased focus and concern for the safety of professional athletes. The most worrisome sports-related injury tends to be brain damage, and athletes who participate in contact sports must rely on supervising medical professionals to keep them safe. Sadly, former college football player Bernard Hicks suffered serious and permanent brain damage during his time spent on the field, and he is now suing his former university for medical malpractice.

Infection lingered undiagnosed for months, patient claims

When allowed to persist and grow unchecked, even seemingly minor infections can rapidly develop into something much more serious and life-threatening. For the best recovery possible, it is often necessary that doctors diagnose infections as early on and as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, hospital negligence is still prevalent in many hospitals in New Jersey and elsewhere, and it is entirely possible for a severe infection to slide by without diagnosis or treatment.

Mother blames son's infection on residential facility

While in-home care is possible for some individuals suffering from certain injuries or disabilities, others require much more intense care and treatment. Depending on the type of disability from which a child might suffer, some New Jersey parents might be faced with the difficult decision of finding a residential facility that can more aptly care for their child. However, when placing a disabled child in the care of a specialized facility, no parent expects their son or daughter to develop an infection due to negligent standards of care.
