Pregnancy-related issues can lead to compensation claims

We recently discussed how cervical length can impact pregnancy. If you recall, it is important for doctors to check on the cervical length and take appropriate action if there is any indication that there is a problem. That is only one of the possible complications that doctors who care for pregnant women have to watch for.

Cervical length can impact the success of a pregnancy

There are many factors that can affect a woman's pregnancy. One of these is the cervical length. The cervix is the bottom most portion of the uterus that resembles a neck. It attaches the uterus to the vagina, and it serves to keep the amniotic sac and baby in the uterus.

Working to handle the legal aspects of your claim

Our previous blog post might have shocked some of our readers. You might have had an idea that doctors will cover up things to protect each other, but learning of a doctor who admits to doing that might have made the point really hit home. We know how mind boggling it is to think that doctors put some sort of pack mentality in front of patient safety.

Doctors lying to protect other doctors in malpractice lawsuits

Oftentimes, the fate of a medical malpractice case that goes before a jury hinges on the testimony that is part of the case. The person who is seeking compensation will usually rely on medical professionals to testify against the doctor who is blamed for the malpractice. That, however, doesn't always work out in the way that it should.
