New Jersey patients may suffer due to failure to diagnose

After suffering an injury, getting the right treatment as soon as possible can often save individuals from unnecessary pain and further damage. Unfortunately, people cannot always get the care they need due to the failure to diagnose the issue. As a result, some patients could go an extended period of time dealing with pain and other discomfort.

New Jersey residents may be interested in such a case that recently affected one out-of-state woman. Reports indicated that in 2015, the woman had X-rays taken, though the reason was not detailed in the report. At the time the X-rays were taken, the attending radiologists apparently did not diagnose the woman with any issues. However, the woman continued to experience severe pain for two months. 

After those painful months, the woman underwent a surgical procedure on her hip. The surgery was apparently necessary because she had suffered a right hip fracture displacement. Because the radiologists who examined her initial X-rays did not attend to this problem, the woman and her husband filed a lawsuit claiming that the doctors did not keep to the appropriate standards of medical care. 

After going to the doctor, many individuals hope to have their ailments effectively treated. This is why the failure to diagnose a problem can be so devastating for those who are left suffering. New Jersey residents who have been the victims of such negligence may be wondering what their options are for seeking compensation for damages. Luckily, experienced attorneys are available for individuals interested in gaining more knowledge.
