Even minor mistakes can be disastrous for medical patients

When patients in New Jersey seek medical treatment, they put their faith in the expertise and knowledge of doctors and other healthcare professionals. For medical treatment to be successful, doctors and providers must be thorough and follow step-by-step processes. If just one step is missed during treatment, the patient can ultimately suffer permanent injuries and even death.

Debilitating injury leads to Iowa medical malpractice lawsuit

Recently in Iowa, a lawsuit was filed after a man was left with extensive, permanent injuries due to alleged mistakes during surgery. According to the lawsuit, the man visited an emergency room complaining of headaches, nausea, blurred vision and eye pain. Allegedly, a CT scan showed the man had a probable tumor, and after being transferred to another medical facility, further testing revealed a mass. Reportedly, the man was discharged with instructions to follow up in two weeks but came back the next day with worsening symptoms.

The man underwent surgery to remove the tumor, which allegedly damaged his sinuses and part of his brain. According to the claim, the patient was unresponsive in recovery, and testing showed he had suffered significant brain damage and spent over a year in the hospital. The lawsuit says he remains confined to a wheelchair and requires around-the-clock care. The lawsuit was reportedly settled, with the plaintiffs receiving nearly $7.5 million.

Options for victims and families

Even something seemingly minor, like misreading a test result, can have disastrous consequences for the patient. Families in New Jersey who have had their lives turned upside down by medical malpractice or negligence have options available to ease their pain and suffering. By filing a lawsuit, victims and families could obtain much-needed compensation.
