Parents blame doctor, surgery gone wrong for son's injuries

Dealing with ongoing health and medical issues of a child forces most New Jersey parents to heavily rely on the knowledge and expertise of doctors and physicians. However, determining when doctors are misguided is not always easy when parents are simply trying to get the best care possible for their child. An out-of-state couple is intimately aware of this after hospital negligence and more than one surgery gone wrong left their young son seriously and permanently injured.

Corrective eye surgery errors can cause life-long consequences

Corrective eye surgery is now a very common elective procedure. Many people benefit from being able to see clearly without the need for corrective lenses or eyeglasses. For those with a history of poor vision, a successful eye surgery has been touted a miracle. However, what about surgeries that do not go as planned? Victims of a botched eye surgery may suffer long-lasting and devastating consequences. 

Hospital negligence blamed for wrong-site surgery

Patients in New Jersey who are about to go under the knife can typically expect for the correct body part to be marked and confirmed prior to heading to the operating table. This pre-surgery practice is an integral aspect of patient safety, as wrong-site surgeries can cause a multitude of problems on top of any prior medical issues. Even when this type of mistake causes serious injury and risk to a patient, institutions and doctors are not always quick to admit hospital negligence.

Veteran suffers after VA failure to recognize cancer

Cancer is a devastating disease that can wreak havoc on the lives of everyone it affects. A timely diagnosis is often an essential component of most cancer treatment plans. A doctor's failure to recognize cancer can ultimately lead to a negative outcome for New Jersey patients, an outcome with which one Navy veteran is intimately familiar.

Patient files suit for foreign object left behind after surgery

Counting scalpels, sponges and other objects used during surgery is a common safety practice used to help protect New Jersey patients from being injured. A foreign object left behind in a patient can cause severe infections and other complications that can quickly arise. This can cause further distress and injury to a patient who is already recovering from surgery.

Hospital negligence one of top 3 causes of death

Heart disease and cancer, even when treated, are the top two causes of death in the United States of America. With so much focus and attention on improving the health care system in New Jersey and across the rest of the country, it might be surprising to learn that medical negligence is the third most common cause of death. Victims who have suffered through and gone on to survive hospital negligence might already understand the seriousness of this problem.
