How important is prenatal testing?

Prenatal testing is a chance for doctors and parents to find out if there is anything medically wrong with a fetus before birth. This testing can help to plan out a woman's care during pregnancy, labor, delivery and certain aspects of care that are necessary after the baby is born. Parents who find out that their baby might have a serious medical condition have to make the decision about whether they will continue on with the pregnancy or terminate it.

Proper screening after hip injury often avoided in older women

When older people break a hip, there are a host of causes that could have contributed to the break. For older women, one of those factors is osteoporosis. That is the reason why experts recommend certain tests be done on older women if they suffer from a broken hip. If the women get bone density testing done, it might be discovered that they do suffer from osteoporosis. At that point, the woman could start on medications that might help to prevent future breaks.

Birth injury case challenges Feres doctrine

Imagine losing a loved one to medical malpractice and being told that you can't take any action to hold the medical staff accountable. That is the reality that many military families are facing because of the Feres doctrine. This doctrine states that military members can't sue the federal government. One lieutenant commander in the Coast Guard is bucking that system and has filed a lawsuit to try to hold Naval Hospital Bremerton liable for his wife's death.

How tools and technology may cause birth injuries

Medical technology has increased massively over the years, and this is a very good thing. It means that people can be treated for diseases they could never be treated for before, children who never would have lived through childbirth are born and they are healthy, and overall wellness is better than it has been before. However, these advances in technology and the use of medical tools can also cause some injuries during birth. A few examples are as follows:

  • Super Lawyers | Rising Star
  • National Association Of Distinguished Counsel | NADC
  • Million dollar advocate forum
  • The National Trial Lawyers | Top 40 | Under 40
  • 2014 Legal Elite Of The Upstate
