Wrongful death suit includes claims of malpractice and conspiracy

No one in New Mexico should die because of someone else’s negligence or mistakes. According to the New Mexico Alliance for Life, a New Mexico woman died after receiving an abortion, and her mother and sister sought an attorney to file a lawsuit against Southwestern Women’s Options and the University of New Mexico. The wrongful death suit also claims that the UNM Office of the Medical Investigator’s Pathologist conspired to cover-up the cause of death.

How traumatic brain injuries affect emotions

Most people in New Mexico probably associate traumatic brain injuries with problems relating to thought and memory, and perhaps also to physical conditions such as seizures or a coma. However, as well as cognitive issues and physical disabilities, a person who sustains a TBI may begin to suffer emotional challenges, particularly when it comes to anger and depression.

Do the benefits of an epidural outweigh the risks?

Epidural is the common form of pain relief during labor, according to the American Pregnancy Association. More than 50 percent of women who give birth in American hospitals use this type of anesthesia to help mask the pain of labor and delivery. Though epidurals are common, they are not risk-free. If you plan to request an epidural when you go into labor in New Mexico, it is important that you understand both the benefits and risks of getting one.

Congress seeks to lower maternal death rate with new law

Many people in New Mexico may believe that the United States is one of the safest places to give birth. However, research shows this is simply not true. In fact, according to USA TODAY, complications in childbirth kill around 700 women each year, and about 50,000 more suffer serious harm. About half of those who die from complications could have been saved if their doctors had taken proper care to diagnose and treat those complications.
