Hoboken, NJ asked in Medical Malpractice for New Jersey

Q: My son was tested 'Negative' for a hearing test in NJ hospital. When we went to another one he tested 'Positive'

Could you please advise about my options here (for suing) or next steps? My family was in utter grief and pain when we heard the results from the first hospital. And which department of law would this type of issue typically falls under?

Thanks for your time and help!

A: there is a variablity in hearing tests. Suggest you speak to a hearing specialist to determine what the reason for the differences are.

Merely giving you a report of what they found isn't actionable. There is no harm to your son from having differential test results. There may be some anxiety, but I don't believe, without more it would be actionable.

But why not contact an attorney who handles malpractice as most give free consultations.
