If your newborn was injured in the NICU, you have rights

The birth of a child can be an exciting, anxious and exhilarating time for parents. The anticipation can be both stressful and joyous. However, sometimes the joy felt over a newborn baby is dampened when something goes wrong. There are many reasons why a newborn may need extra care in a neonatal unit and parents naturally trust that all the medical professionals involved in caring for their child are doing the very best that they can. Sadly, this is not always what occurs. If your newborn suffered negligent treatment at the hands of medical personnel while in the neonatal intensive care center (NICU), the results can be devastating.

Family compensated for doctor's failure to diagnose cancer

Cancer is a devastating illness that, left untreated, may result in death. With a timely diagnosis, there are a wide variety of available treatments that can give New Jersey patients a ray of hope for the future. Sadly, one family was recently awarded $6 million for a loved one's death that was ultimately caused by his doctor's failure to diagnose cancer.

Wife blames husband's death on emergency room error

Emergency rooms are typically the frontline of defense for New Jersey patients who are experiencing a serious health crisis, but with the fast pace of this type of care, errors can be commonplace. A woman from a neighboring state claims that an emergency room error ultimately resulted in her husband's death. She subsequently filed a medical malpractice claim in order to seek justice on his behalf.

Anesthesiologist lacked insurance before surgery gone wrong

Malpractice insurance is a must for New Jersey doctors who are actively seeing and treating patients, and yet there are still those in the health profession who operate without it. Now, the state's Supreme Court has upheld a law that injured patients cannot actually sue a negligent doctor for not being covered by any type of malpractice insurance. This leaves some victims injured by an infection or a surgery gone wrong without many options.

Negligence, environment named as sources of failure to diagnose

Feel pretty confident about that last diagnosis? Studies show that relying on a doctor's initial diagnosis might not only be misguided, but it could also be dangerous. Doctor negligence in New Jersey and across the country has culminated in a dangerous environment where a failure to diagnose a serious disease is steadily increasing phenomenon that most patients will suffer from in their lifetime.
