Research aims to lessen lasting effects of birth injury

Maryland parents typically expect welcoming a new baby to be an occasion of pure joy, but sometimes, a lot can go wrong during the birth and delivery process. One of the more common birth injury scenarios in the United States is oxygen deprivation. If a baby is born prematurely, oxygen deprivation can occur because a baby's lungs may not be developed enough to draw the necessary first breaths. But sadly, this situation can also occur due to medical malpractice. 

Deaths heighten awareness about brain trauma

Medical research and technology is always advancing, but often, people can forget how important it is to better understand conditions without obvious physical symptoms. Now, some notable deaths are drawing public awareness and helping people understand the gravity of brain trauma. The recent death of a combat veteran has the nation concerned and a Maryland family fighting for answers. 

Are hospitals trying to avoid paying for birth injuries?

A lot can go wrong with a newborn during the delivery process. Birth injuries are sadly more common than many might suspect. Sometimes, the newborn's family pursues a medical malpractice claim against the health care professionals and/or the facility that caused the injury. These lawsuits can result in massive verdicts, and now some Maryland hospitals are advocating for legislation that may help them avoid paying such verdicts in the future.
