Flesh melted from medical malpractice prescription error

Most New Jersey residents put their trust in the hands of medical professionals and rely on proper treatments and medicine dosages to be prescribed. Medical staff are subjected to extensive education and training, which leaves patients with an unrelenting trust that the knowledge obtained will benefit their medical needs. When a patient is subjected to improper or a careless standard of care, it unravels the trust in the medical community. Sadly, many instances in which a wrong dosage of medication was prescribed to a patient have resulted in medical malpractice lawsuits due to the serious and sometimes fatal harm suffered by the victims.

A woman in another state suffered an unprecedented amount of loss when her flesh disintegrated from her body. The victim was submitted to a medication error from her doctor, and the pharmacy did not detect the fallacy. This horrid mistake forced her to be put into a medically induced coma. 

The victim states that this nightmare all started when painful sores appeared all over her body that left her feeling like she was ignited in flames. As a result of this medical error, she was diagnosed with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome by proxy, which is a rare and serious skin disorder. She also suffers from permanent vision loss and light sensitivity due to this medication oversight.

Experienced legal counsel in New Jersey can help to pursue justice and significantly increase the odds of achieving the most favorable outcome possible. Any awarded damages from a successful claim can help to ease a victim's pain and suffering. In addition, it can help to cover many of the unfortunate expenses he or she may now be facing from medical malpractice.
