Few people look forward to having to undergo a major surgery. While they may certainly hope that the end results will be worth the operation, the potential for something to go wrong could still cause many New Jersey residents to feel apprehensive about going under the knife. Unfortunately, hospital negligence can cause negative outcomes to occur.
It was recently reported that a man in another state suffered additional medical issues after undergoing a surgery. Apparently, in 2013, the man had a coronary artery bypass graft surgery, but after the procedure, he began having pain and numbness that affected his left hand and arm. He was later diagnosed with a condition that was apparently caused by the surgery that he had undergone.
The man believes that the hospital and doctor involved in his surgery did not properly carry out the operation. He also believes that they did not properly care for him in general. As a result, he has filed lawsuit claiming medical negligence and hopes that a jury trial will help him pursue compensation for the damages he has suffered since the initial surgical procedure.
Developing additional medical issues after a surgical procedure can feel devastating. When patients learn that the doctors and other hospital staff may have acted negligently, they may feel even more dismayed by the situation. If New Jersey residents believe that hospital negligence resulted in their suffering, they may want to gain more information on their legal options. Filing medical malpractice claims may help them pursue the restitution they deserve after such harrowing events.
