Compensation awarded in hospital negligence lawsuit

While giving birth is one of the most natural experiences for women, it can also have a number of risks. As a result, many women feel more comfortable giving birth in hospitals where they can receive medical attention in the event that something goes wrong. Unfortunately, in some cases, hospital negligence can result in additional problems rather than solutions.

New Jersey readers may be interested in one out-of-state woman's lawsuit that stemmed from medical malpractice during and after the delivery of her child. Reports stated that during delivery, her uterus ruptured and caused severe bleeding. As a result, her obstetrician performed multiple surgeries, including a hysterectomy, in efforts to stop the bleeding. However, another doctor had to perform a fifth surgery, and during the operation, the surgeon had to fix damage resulting from the earlier operations.

As a result, the woman filed a lawsuit against the first doctor claiming he induced labor too early, did not perform needed surgeries in a timely manner and left the woman while she was still experiencing severe bleeding. A jury recently came to a verdict on the case, and the woman was awarded $2.4 million. The defendant's attorney argued that his client did his best in a situation that often proves fatal for mothers.

When patients enter the hospital, they often expect to receive the best care possible. Regrettably, that care is not always what is given. If New Jersey residents believe that hospital negligence resulted in their suffering unnecessary harm, they may want to consider their legal options for seeking compensation.
