Most women don't know risks for pregnancy complications and death

Did you know that two women in the United States die every day due to pregnancy-related complications? If you are shocked, you are not alone. Most people do not know the serious risks pregnant women face in the U.S. but maternal mortality is a very serious issue that should be discussed more often between doctors and pregnant women.

Missed diagnoses continue to plague the health care system

When Massachusetts residents visit the doctor's office with concerning symptoms, they trust that their physician will do whatever is necessary to provide an accurate diagnosis. Unfortunately, medical professionals don't always take necessary precautions to provide an adequate level of attention and care. This idea is suggested in reports that point out 39 percent of successful medical malpractice cases result from the failure to diagnose a medical condition.

Donovan & O'Connor Reaches 100 Year Milestone!

Founded in 1913 by Walter J. Donovan, Donovan & O'Connor is celebrating 100 years of serving our community. Atty. Donovan, a Berkshire County native, returned to the area after graduating from Cornell Law School in 1912, working at General Electric until he was admitted to the Massachusetts bar in 1913. After admission to the bar, Atty. Donovan began his practice of law in the former armory building in Adams, Massachusetts and, in 1914, moved his practice to the Mausert Block, where it remained until 1970. Described as a detail-oriented task master deeply concerned for the well-being of his clients, Atty. Donovan laid the foundation for the caring atmosphere of perfectionism that remains at the firm to this day.
