New Jersey Woman Files Medical Malpractice For Poor Treatment

Posted on

A woman has filed a civil lawsuit against a man who she says was negligent in providing her laser treatment for hair removal and that the man also violated her privacy with this treatment. The woman alleges that the medical malpractice suit arises from conduct of the man, who had represented to her that he was a licensed doctor in New Jersey. The woman claims that the man had her take off all of her clothes to treat private areas.

Based on an investigation by New Jersey authorities, it was discovered that man was in fact not licensed to practice medicine in New Jersey. The man was arrested in February and recently pleaded guilty to the charge. This arrest is alleged to have caused the woman severe distress.

The woman also claims that the man gave her awful medical advice. The man is alleged to have advised the woman to get more sun in an effort to treat burns she suffered as a result of her hair removal. This advice, according to the woman, made her condition worse. The woman also states that the man sold her medications that had severe side effects, causing her further pain.

Medical malpractice claims normally arise from the conduct of a licensed doctor who negligently cares for their patient. It is a basic rule, that all doctors who wish to practice medicine in New Jersey must be certified with the state. Although it is not clear as to whether this man was certified in any state, this type of conduct by anyone practicing medicine without a license may form the basis for a civil suit being filed. This suit may allow a victim to recover the damages they suffer that were a result of their detrimental reliance on medical advice being issued by an unlicensed medical provider.
