Failure to diagnose brain tumor led to death

When a person faces a serious medical condition, time is often of the essence. When a diagnosis is delayed or missed completely, a patient could suffer longer than necessary, get worse or even die as a result of the ailment. Unfortunately, the failure to diagnose conditions is not uncommon and does result in numerous deaths.

New Jersey readers may be interested in such a situation that has led to a lawsuit in another state. Reports indicated that the administrator for the estate of a deceased man has filed the claim against a hospital where he sought treatment. Apparently, the man had gone for medical attention in 2015, and while receiving services from the hospital, the medical staff failed to diagnose a brain tumor from which the man was suffering.

The man later died in 2017. The estate administrator claims that the hospital staff were negligent in their treatment of the man as they did not diagnose and treat the tumor in a timely manner and were also complicit in other negligent acts relating to his care. If successful, the plaintiff hopes to obtain more than $50,000 in compensation.

When the failure to diagnose a serious issue, like a brain tumor, results in the death of a loved one, families are understandably devastated by the outcomes. As this case shows there may be reason under such circumstances to pursue legal action against the parties considered liable in the event. If New Jersey families have lost loved ones due to hospital negligence, they may want to speak with knowledgeable attorneys about their legal options.
