Automobile accidents happen every day on Montana roadways. If you were injured in a car accident and are suffering physically, financially and emotionally as a result, you may wonder if compensation is available to you. The truth is, it might be.
Doctor burnout is a widespread issue that affects medical professionals in Montana and across the U.S. According to a national survey published by Mayo Clinic Proceedings, more than half of doctors practicing in America are burned out, and thus more likely to make mistakes. The survey asked almost 6,700 hospital and clinic doctors about issues like fatigue, depression, suicidal thoughts, medical errors, workplace safety and symptoms of burnout.
Expecting mothers in Montana have every right to get excellent care when they go into the hospital to give birth. However, women across the United States are facing an ongoing increase in maternal death and injury in childbirth. This is in striking contradiction to the global trend in other developed countries. While the maternal mortality and injury rate has dropped significantly in most developed countries, it has continued to rise in the United States. Each year, around 50,000 mothers are injured during childbirth while another 700 lose their lives.
