About 30 miles to the west of Burlington County, a family mourns the loss of a wife and daughter. Adding to their grief, they must find a way to care for her severely brain-damaged infant son. Her husband and mother filed a lawsuit against that city claiming medical malpractice and defective equipment caused their losses in 2012. Seeking compensation and accountability from those responsible will help them recover and may provide the financial security needed for the future.
Family members in another state find themselves able to proceed with a medical malpractice suit thanks to an Appeals Court ruling. In question is the possible hospital negligence that resulted in the death of an 80-year-old woman. Complex legal questions surrounded the matter – the same type of procedural issues that could be found in New Jersey courts – but the case will now go forward as this husband and eight children seek compensation and accountability for their loss.
