Medical Malpractice Archives

Violation of trust, confidentiality = medical malpractice suit

Most people have a very trusting relationship with their doctors in New Jersey. People trust that the people caring for them have the knowledge, expertise and experience to treat them and will do so ethically. A particularly close and trusting relationship can be the one between a woman and her gynecologist. Failure to respect this relationship can result in a medical malpractice suit.

Failure to provide care can result in medical malpractice

When a family member is in severe discomfort and pain loved ones will look to the medical community in New Jersey to relieve the patient's suffering. Families expect medical professionals to act in good faith and to advise the concerned loved ones of any risks involved. The doctors will also typically assess a patient's condition to undergo surgical procedures before performing surgeries. Failure to do so may result in a medical malpractice suit.

Back pain leads to a medical malpractice suit

Millions of Americans suffer from some level of back pain in New Jersey. Some of these cases are caused by scoliosis, a curvature of the spine. Scoliosis can be mild or severe and, in some cases, surgery may be suggested as a possible remedy. Such is the situation in a current medical malpractice suit.

Can a nurse's mistake result in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

According to a 2017 Gallop Poll, the general public ranks nursing as the number one most ethical profession. We trust the years of medical training they undergo and respect them for the hard work and long hours many of them put into their careers. When mistakes are made causing a medical problem, patients often consider every other possibility before blaming their nurse.

Medical malpractice: maggots in wounds, bed sores and sepsis

Caregivers are expected to give a substantial amount of proper medical treatment when caring for individuals that can no longer care for themselves. Most people are dumbfounded by the very thought of incapacitated individuals being abused. New Jersey residents should never be subjected to any form of medical malpractice.

Understanding New Jersey’s wrongful death and survival laws

If you are a New Jersey resident who recently lost a loved one, you are going through a very painful period of your life. If your loved one’s death resulted from someone’s negligence, carelessness or wrongdoing, not only must you deal with your grief, you also must deal with the nagging question of whether you should file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person or entity that caused your loved one’s death.

Medical malpractice: Man misdiagnosed with cancer

There is an expected amount of trust in the New Jersey medical community when it comes to lab results. When an individual is given results that call for an aggressive level of treatment, it is expected that the results are accurate without error. Medical malpractice is disheartening and weakens the trust within the system that patients establish with medical professionals.

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.

Criminal charges could indicate medical malpractice

Regardless of the love that families have for their aging or medically complex loved ones, they often find themselves unable to provide the necessary care. As a result, they are forced to make difficult decisions, including whether to place a loved one in a residential care facility. Unfortunately, some families in New Jersey are finding that their loved ones are the victims of medical malpractice in such facilities, often leaving them wondering how to best respond.
