Filing for a medical malpractice claim in New Jersey

Imagine going to the hospital for treatment and being turned away. Maybe you have gone to get a vaccine and been told you don't need it, just to suffer from the very disease you wanted to avoid. Whatever kind of medical malpractice you think you've faced, you deserve the right to pursue your case and to seek compensation for your injuries.

There are several common kinds of medical malpractice that you can claim for. A failure to diagnose claim is one. If your doctor doesn't notice obvious signs of sickness or ill health that others would have identified, he may be held accountable for your misdiagnoses or lack of diagnosis.

Birth injuries are another kind of medical malpractice you can claim for. Sometimes, doctors don't order Cesarean-sections in time, and this can lead to a lack of oxygen reaching a baby's brain. That could result in cerebral palsy or other life-altering disorders. In some severe cases, this kind of mistake could lead to a child's wrongful death.

Simple mistakes such as prescription errors can also put you in harm's way. Imagine taking a pill for pain and realizing later that you had taken something to lower your blood pressure; the dangers are high when the wrong medications is given to the wrong patients. If your doctor or pharmacist has given you the wrong prescription, you may want to file a lawsuit.
