Maternal birth injuries unacceptably high across the U.S.

When something goes wrong during childbirth, both the baby and the mother's lives could be at stake. Unfortunately, emergency situations may not be treated or recognized in a timely manner, causing mothers to suffer life-long complications or even die. According to an analysis by USA Today, one in eight hospitals in the U.S. have complication rates twice the norm for labor and delivery. This is a serious issue affecting mothers in Texas and across the nation.

Can medical records be disclosed in wrongful death cases?

Medical records are sensitive, and people generally do not want these records made available to anyone. The law recognizes this, and thus, provides for a physician-patient privilege that protects this private information. Per federal and Texas law, the physician-patient privilege means that patients do not have to provide others with their private medical information, unless they agree to do so. This generally means that, with a few exceptions, doctors are not permitted to disclose any medical information obtained in a professional capacity without the patient's consent.
