Abuse case could lead to medical malpractice claim

When families in New Jersey place their loved ones in the care of nursing home facilities, they expect that proper care will be provided. In addition to meeting their nutritional needs and providing appropriate medical care, staff at such facilities are also expected to ensure the safety and overall well-being of patients. Unfortunately, a recent criminal case may reveal medical malpractice at an out-of-state facility.

Fatal New Jersey accident potential case of wrongful death

Because drivers can become completely comfortable behind the wheel, they may overlook the potential harm they can cause should their vehicle drift into oncoming traffic or strike the rear of another. While many drivers would never think to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they may overlook the harm that certain distractions can cause. It is unclear what caused a recent fatal accident in New Jersey that could potentially result in a wrongful death lawsuit.

Lack of sleep increases chance of motor vehicle accidents

Most people in New Jersey are aware of the risks of drinking and driving. As a result, they ensure that they are never behind the wheel of a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages. However, a recent survey conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reportedly reveals that some drivers may be overlooking a surprising cause of motor vehicle accidents that can be just as harmful as driving drunk.

Wrongful death lawsuit accuses nursing home of ignoring rape

All medical care facilities, including nursing homes, in New Jersey and across the country are tasked with meeting the needs of their patients. In addition to meeting their physical needs, such as providing proper medical care and adequate nutrition, such facilities must also protect the safety of their patients. Unfortunately, a recently filed wrongful death lawsuit accuses one facility of failing to have a plan in place to prevent the rape of one of its residents, among other accusations.

Motor vehicle accidents: Teen to receive community service

The grief following the unexpected death of a loved one is typically overwhelming. Many in New Jersey who have lost a loved one due to motor vehicle accidents caused by another driver's negligence often receive some peace of mind from a criminal conviction. However, even if there is no satisfaction in the criminal justice system, surviving family members often seek justice in the civil court. The family of a deceased man has the option of following such a course.

Lawsuit accuses nursing home, others of medical malpractice

Families in New Jersey can often become complicated. Even family members who have little interaction with one another still have concerns about each other's safety and overall well-being. Unfortunately, a recent medical malpractice lawsuit filed by three children in another state against a nursing home facility, hospital, doctor and physician's assistance raises some alarming claims about the treatment one patient allegedly received leading up to her death.

Medical malpractice due to nursing home abuse and neglect

People in New Jersey who place their loved ones in a nursing home facility expect that they will receive the care that they need. Unfortunately, some in such facilities become the victim of medical malpractice in the form of nursing home abuse and neglect. Knowing how to detect the signs of abuse can help those with elderly loved ones ensure they are receiving the care they deserve.

Asking for a second medical opinion

Doctors are some of the most trusted professionals, but even the smartest healthcare providers do make mistakes. According to "BMJ Journals," the incident rate of diagnostic errors is about 13 to 15 percent. But that's not the only reason people need to get a second medical opinion. It's recommended that you seek a second opinion in these types of cases:

Motor vehicle accidents: Woman killed in New Jersey crosswalk

Many colleges and universities have a great deal of pedestrians. As a result, drivers in the area must ensure that they are extremely careful as motor vehicle accidents can have serious consequences. Unfortunately, police in New Jersey claim that a young woman was recently killed as she attempted to cross the street near Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Wrongful death lawsuit details treatment of deceased patients

Most people in New Jersey are dedicated to caring for their parents when they become unable to do so. Unfortunately, as people age and become ill, they require care beyond what the average person is capable of providing, prompting loved ones to seek assistance from a nursing home. Unfortunately, a recent lawsuit filed by a woman in another state claims that negligence resulted in the wrongful death of the woman's mother and stepfather.
