Injustices in US Systems are the Catalyst to the Loss of Loved Ones’ Lives
Anthony Menzel tells a heartfelt true story of a grandmother’s death due to a NJ hospital’s negligence.
“To commemorate my beloved grandmother, and to raise awareness regarding the shameful workings of the legal and medical systems in the US and New Jersey are the primary reasons for my book. The system is unjust, and I wish that other families experiencing similar trauma can learn from my work,”
Losing a loved one creates a deep, indelible wound in the hearts of family members and close friends. Losing them due to mistreatment is an even more scathing truth to acknowledge. In his new book, Justice for Carmen, Anthony Menzel eloquently portrays the real-life story of how his beloved grandmother passed away because of negligent hands.
The legal system of most places in the US assigns the value of a human life based on expected earnings potential. That makes it almost impossible to get legal redress for negligence in US courts, which in turn causes hospitals to have little incentive to treat elderly patients with care and respect. The hospitals know that many lawyers are not willing to take on elder abuse cases, especially those attached with Medicare and Medicaid costs, because the compensation is likely to be low. The story of Carmen Chávez reveals these harsh realities, as well as the family’s grueling journey and grief.
“To commemorate my beloved grandmother, and to raise awareness regarding the shameful workings of the legal and medical systems in the US and New Jersey are the primary reasons for my book. The system is unjust, and I wish that other families experiencing similar trauma can learn from my work,” Menzel says.
A story that will move one to tears, Justice for Carmen is a profound work of truth.
