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.

Suit: Physicians ignored symptoms that led to brain hemorrhages

Many illnesses are associated with a list of symptoms. Patients in North Adams suffering from a variety of conditions will often tell physicians about physical pains they are feeling. In many cases, a brain injury will exhibit certain telltale signs that should not be ignored. One woman’s experience demonstrates the danger of missing these key symptoms.

World Cup incident prompts calls to limit heading in youth soccer

Many Massachusetts parents encourage their children to participate in group sports, which can be beneficial to their physical, social, emotional, and intellectual health. Unfortunately, sometimes participation in sports can leave children with brain injuries that can have long-term negative effects on their health and wellness.

Newborn may have mistakenly received mom's pain medicine

After a new mother gives birth, she depends on doctors and nurses in the hospital to provide appropriate care for her newborn baby and for her own recovery. Such care must include careful monitoring of both mother and baby to make sure that both are healthy and properly recovering from the labor and delivery process. In some cases, such as when a caesarean section was performed, a mother might need antibiotics or pain medications administered. In the event that hospital staff in Massachusetts or anywhere else makes a mistake when delivering such medicine, birth injuries can result.
