Multi-vehicle crash in New Jersey kills one and injures another

Residents in New Jersey often feel the constant demands that life brings. And because of that, motorists find themselves driving from place to place at all hours of the day, even during morning and evening rush hour. While traffic is a part of driving, it is also something that motorists should remain attentive during. While a driver might be compelled to check their emails, text others or even make a phone call as a means to pass the time, this action is a dangerous choice to make. Anytime a driver is not paying attention to the road or the primary task of driving, this increases the risk of causing a car accident.

Understanding birth injuries and defects and their causes

Finding out that you are going to have a baby is an exciting time. And, as the baby's due date nears, parents are very anxious about meeting their little one. While this is a joyous time, certain events could disrupt and impact this momentous event. If medical errors occur during the birthing process, a newborn or even the mother could suffer serious injuries. A birth injury could impact a newborn temporarily or for the rest of his or her life, making a serious incident. Parents should be sure to understand their rights in this matter and what they can do to protect their rights and the rights of their baby.

Medical device alarm systems can lead to fatal errors

Regardless of the medical issue that leads to a hospital stay, patients will probably have at least one device near the bed that sends alerts to the health-care providers who are monitoring them. While these electronic systems often have lifesaving functions, they could also compromise safety.

How common are medication errors during surgery?

For some New Jersey residents, surgery is a necessary step. Whether it is for a major medical issue or minor health problem, patients rely on the expertise of surgeons and medical professionals to get them through the procedure. While these professionals have extensive training and education, mistakes could unfortunately occur. And when it comes to medical errors occurring during a surgery, it is possible for these mistakes to be related to the medications given to the patient during the procedure.

Helping harmed patients pursue a medical malpractice action

At some point in time, every resident in New Jersey will require some form of medical care or treatment. This is usually not an issue because patients of all ages rely on the training and expertise to diagnose and treat them no matter the injury, ailment or disease. Unfortunately, doctors are also human and can make errors. While these errors could be purely accidental, others are a result of medical negligence.
