Unprofessional plastic surgery can result in severe complications

Many Massachusetts residents choose to undergo cosmetic procedures for a variety of reasons. Plastic surgery may be seen as a relatively low-risk type of surgery; however, most cosmetic procedures carry the same risks as other types of surgery. Some cosmetic procedures have risks that are unique in the medical field.

Prevention techniques to avoid post-surgical infection

The risk of an infection after surgery is higher than you might suspect. According to Consumer Reports, about one in 20 people across the country contract an infection during their hospital stay. The period of time immediately following surgery is especially risky, since you will be healing from surgical incisions and susceptible to infections in or near your surgery site. At Donovan & O'Connor, LLP, we understand the risks Massachusetts residents face due to a doctor error, and we are prepared to help clients seek compensation for medical negligence.

What do parents need to know about backyard trampolines?

They are a common fixture in many backyards in Massachusetts and across the country, but this doesn’t necessarily mean the family trampoline is safe. In fact, if your children enjoy jumping on a trampoline, you may want to pay attention to this post.

Difficulties in diagnosing fibromyalgia

Many serious medical conditions may be made worse if there is a failure to diagnose the illness properly and the right treatment is missed as a result. This is true for Massachusetts residents who are suffering from non-fatal, chronic conditions, as well as those who may die from a delay in diagnosis. Some medical conditions have symptoms that are similar to the symptoms of other conditions. This is especially true for fibromyalgia – a common yet often misunderstood muscle, nerve and joint disorder.

Potential labor and delivery complications with an epidural

When you’re preparing for the birth of your baby, pain relief may be one of your concerns. You probably already know that labor is usually painful, whether this is your first baby or if you have other children. At the law office of Donovan & O'Connor, LLP, we are prepared to help our Massachusetts clients find justice and closure after the difficult and often heartbreaking results of a mistake during labor and delivery. These include the potential complications that may result from anesthesia administration.
