Medical error statistics

New Jersey residents might be surprised to learn about how deadly medical mistakes are. Heart disease, cancer and respiratory disease were believed to be the top three leading causes of death in 2013, but a study from Johns Hopkins University reports that the third leading cause of death in 2013 was actually medical errors.

Surgery for early prostate cancer may not be beneficial

Some New Jersey residents may be among the 160,000 or so men who have been or will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2017. It has also been estimated that more than 26,000 will die from this form of cancer. Because the majority of those who are diagnosed are in the early stages, one common treatment has been surgery. However, a study showed that this treatment provided few benefits.

Appealing your New Jersey workers’ comp denial

When you go to work in the morning, you do not expect to leave on a stretcher in the afternoon. You expect your workplace to be safe, so you do not spend a lot of time thinking about what will happen if you suffer a work-related injury. Your boss has workers' compensation insurance, so if anything does happen, you should receive benefits.

Clinic responsible for failing to diagnose rare condition

A failure to diagnose a condition can be one of the most devastating types of medical malpractice faced by New Jersey patients and their families. The time lost in treatment for some diseases can lead to irreparable harm in certain cases.

Alzheimer's patients at risk of misdiagnosis

New Jersey Alzheimer's disease patients who also experience symptoms of psychosis are at a particula risk for misdiagnosis, a study suggests. People with Alzheimer's who experience symptoms like hallucinations and delusions are far more apt to be misdiagnosed as having Lewy body dementia.
