Any time that medical treatment is administered, the safety of a patient is potentially put at risk. This is why we must rely on the experience and professionalism of doctors and medical personnel to ensure patients get the treatment they require in the manner that is expected. Unfortunately, all too often, the actions or negligence of medical staff result in serious consequences for patients. These cases ofmedical malpractice may result in serious injury or even death, and can have life-altering effects on patients and loved ones. Specifically in cases of medical malpractice and anesthesia errors, the consequences for our New Jersey clients can be high. In these types of situations, it is important to have the aid of experienced medical malpractice attorneys, such as those at Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma, to ensure that a patient's rights are protected.
Believe it or not, a person is more likely to be involved in a fatal auto accident on a country road than on an urban road. Even though more than half of our nation's population resides in the country's 50 most populous urban areas - cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia - only 40 percent of auto accident fatalities occur there, according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
