Life after a traumatic brain injury in Massachusetts

Traumatic brain injuries are a common type of injury throughout Massachusetts, and all of the U.S. Generally caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head, these injuries can be the result of any number of incidents. Car accidents, assaults, contact during sporting events and workplace accidents are all common causes of brain injuries. Regardless of the cause, the road to recovery can be a long and difficult one. At Donovan & O’Connor, LLP, we often consult with people who have sustained traumatic brain injuries, and are unsure how their lives will be impacted by their conditions. In this post, we will discuss the effects of such injuries, as well as life after they have occurred.

What causes Pseudomonas infections in hospital patients?

Hospitals are usually viewed as safe places for the sick and injured to recover. In reality, however, these health care facilities sometimes place their patients in even greater harm. Infections, doctor errors and misdiagnoses can all lead to the exacerbation of existing health problems. In worst case scenarios, these hospital errors may even lead to a patient’s death.

When should a doctor recommend a C-section?

For many expectant mothers in North Adams, the prospect of giving birth, while a welcome one, is also one that's been known to cause a good deal of anxiety. In order to avoid stress, most women are recommended to follow the advice of their doctors. However, in certain cases, it's the doctors themselves that are the source of the stress.
