Understanding birth injuries to mothers and babies

When preparing to give birth, a New Jersey mother will likely devise a birth plan. While this is what a mother hopes her labor and delivery will entail, the reality is that a lot of the unexpected could occur in a birthing room. In some cases, errors could have been made during pregnancy when a doctor advised a mother to take a certain prescription or do certain things. However, some mistakes are made during the delivery room. These acts could result in harms to the mother or the baby in the form of a birth injury.

What is pre-eclampsia?

As an expectant New Jersey mother, the health and welfare of both you and your developing baby are likely your main concern. You therefore should begin making – and keeping – frequent appointments with your OB/GYN as soon as you discover that you are pregnant. (S)he needs to monitor the progress of your pregnancy and be on the lookout for any possible problems and/or complications. Pre-eclampsia is one of these complications.

Pedestrian safety and crash rates

As some residents in New Jersey can attest, traveling by foot can be much more convenient than traveling by motor vehicle. Although automobiles serve a purpose, they also pose many risks. This is especially true for pedestrians. Because they travel in areas where motor vehicles are also traveling, this creates a risk for collision. And, in areas where there are not sidewalks or marked crosswalks, this can reduce the safety for pedestrians.

Helping you recover compensation following a pedestrian accident

For residents in New Jersey, walking by foot is not uncommon. Whether an individual is out for a stroll, walking on the city streets, is commuting to work or walking to or from their vehicle, being a pedestrian comes with risks. While there are many benefits to walking to destinations, when a person is traveling by foot around motor vehicles, he or she opens up him or herself to much vulnerability. Even when traveling at slow speeds, a motor vehicle can do much damage to a person. Because he or she does not enjoy the same safety features as a vehicle, a pedestrian is likely to be thrown due to the force of the collision. This can cause serious and even fatal injuries to the victim.

Does doctor burnout cause medical errors?

We all tend to get anxious when we visit the doctor. Whether it is a routine checkup, a visit to diagnose an ailment or a scheduled or emergency procedure, patients in New Jersey and elsewhere are often fearful of many "what-ifs." What if the doctor finds something wrong, what if I am diagnosed with a serious illness, what if I go through the wrong treatment plan, what if something goes wrong during surgery and what if the doctor missed something? These may be common concerns. However, there are some situations that patients should not be worried about, and that is the doctor being negligent. Unfortunately, medical mistakes and errors could occur, with negligence being the cause.

Medical malpractice, negligence and the standard of care

No matter the reason, when New Jersey patients visit a medical profession, they likely trust the observations and recommendations of their doctor. Whether it is a diagnosis, treatment plan or a procedure, patients trust the knowledge and expertise of physicians and specialist. Because they have obtained years of education, followed by years of training, one expects that they are in good hands with a medical expert. Unfortunately, medical professionals are also humans and subject to human errors. While medical errors can occur, medical mistakes also occur because doctors and other medical professionals have not met the standard of care he or she is required to meet in his or her profession.
