Medical-related death may lead to need for justice in New Jersey

The loss of a loved one can often be felt for considerable lengths of time. Some people may feel the need to have questions answered and to possibly even seek justice and compensation if the death occurred due to the negligence of others. In some cases, medical procedures that result in fatalities may cause this type of action.

New Jersey residents may be interested in one out-of-state man's case that recently came to a verdict. The situation apparently began in 2012 when the man's wife went to a gastroenterologist for what was described as an endoscopic procedure. Additional information on the procedure was not given in the report. Nonetheless, the woman died four months later, and the man claims the death occurred due to complications from the initial procedure. She was 38 years old.

The jury on the case recently awarded the man $4.78 million to cover damages resulting from the situation. Legal representation for the defendants stated that the woman received "poor care" at another hospital, but his clients ended up with the blame. It was mentioned that the defendants plan to file an appeal to the verdict.

When a death occurs after a medical procedure, surviving family and friends can feel understandably devastated. They likely believed that their loved one would get better after seeking medical attention only to have a far worse outcome occur. If New Jersey residents have found themselves facing such an issue, they may wish to consider taking legal action of their own. Speaking with knowledgeable attorneys may allow them to better understand their options.
