New Jersey Respiratory Distress Syndrome Attorneys
Representing Victims of Medical Malpractice in Essex County and throughout New Jersey
Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a serious medical condition that results in severe shortness of breath and even the inability to breathe at all. Victims often require the assistance of a ventilator to breathe, and many require drug treatment as well. Many ARDS victims never completely recover, being forced to live with reduced lung capacity and often suffering from chronic depression, anxiety and other ancillary conditions. Complications such as scarring in the lungs (pulmonary fibrosis), collapsed lungs, blood clots, and infections may result from ARDS, and in the most extreme cases, victims can suffer mild to severe brain damage due to lack of oxygen.
While many cases of ARDS come about as the result of a severe blow to the chest, toxic exposure, severe pneumonia, and other causes, a significant number manifest due to the negligence of a medical professional. If you or a loved one is suffering with the effects of ARDS because of a healthcare provider’s error, you may have grounds for legal action.
