Top 6 Deadliest Roads in New Jersey

New Jersey is known for having some of the deadliest roads in the entire country. That’s because the state has a large population, a lot of cars, and traffic congestion that can cause nightmares for many motorists. Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter if a fatal car crash was caused by bumper-to-bumper traffic during rush hour,…Read More

Know Your Rights: Working Off the Clock

Hourly workers in New Jersey are protected by both NJ employment laws and federal employment laws. One of the main legal protections for workers is that they are supposed to be paid for their labor. This means that working off the clock is usually illegal. If you perform work for your employer, you must be…Read More

New Jersey Lawyers Representing Patients Harmed by Delayed Diagnosis of Internal Bleeding

Internal bleeding itself is not medical malpractice. Failure to detect and treat internal bleeding may be malpractice. At Team Law, we represent clients in cases involving delays in diagnosing internal bleeding that resulted in serious complications, permanent injury or death. If you or a member of your family suffered serious harm because of a delay in diagnosing internal bleeding, please contact our law firm to discuss your case.

Internal bleeding can occur in several ways, including:

  • Blood vessel or organ perforation during a surgical procedure
  • Trauma, such as a car accident or physical violence
  • Puncture wounds from gunshots, knives or other penetrating objects
  • Ruptured aneurisms
  • Blood thinning medications

*Internal bleeding can quickly send a patient into shock, which can be life-threatening. That is why it is important that doctors and nurses monitor patients for symptoms of internal bleeding and quickly diagnose and treat it when it does occur.

Blood Loss During Surgery

Internal bleeding is a risk in any surgery. Doctors and nurses must pay attention to:

  • Amount of blood loss
  • Number of blood transfusions
  • Urine output
  • Amount of IV fluids administered

In one of our cases, a doctor claimed he did not know that the patient received nine blood transfusions during surgery. He claimed he was unaware that the three-liter canister that holds blood suctioned from the patient’s body needed to be changed despite a nurse’s announcement during the procedure that suction had to be temporarily stopped because she was removing the canister filled with blood so she could replace it with a new canister. (The human body contains about five to six liters of blood in total.)

Our principal medical malpractice attorney Roy J. Konray knows the procedures doctors and nurses must follow to monitor and detect excessive bleeding.

Internal Bleeding After Surgery

In the recovery room, medical staff must pay close attention to the patient’s vital signs. A drop in blood pressure, a rapid weak pulse, cool, moist skin, and blue-tinged lips and nail beds are all signs of shock that may be caused by internal blood loss.

Non-surgical Internal Bleeding

Failure to diagnose internal bleeding does not always involve surgery. The symptoms of internal bleeding can be confused with those of a heart attack. If appropriate tests are not ordered, doctors may mistakenly prescribe blood thinners to a patient with internal bleeding. These medications can worsen internal bleeding and put the patient’s life at risk.
