North Charleston Birth Injury Lawyer
South Carolina Medical Malpractice Attorneys Proudly Represent Parents in All Types of Preventable Birth Injuries
You put a lot of thought into where you choose to deliver your baby. You spoke to friends, read reviews, asked your primary care provider and visited the hospital. Ultimately, you chose a hospital that you trust. However, hospitals do not always live up to their reputations – or our expectations. In fact, for every 1,000 babies born in the United States, between six and eight of them will suffer some type of preventable birth injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, your child’s life may never be how you envisioned it.
The Steinberg Law Firm is a respected North Charleston birth injury law firm advocating on behalf of injury victims for more than 95 years. Since 1927, we have handled all types of personal injury and medical malpractice claims, including birth injury lawsuits. We not only have a firm grasp on this nuanced area of law, but we also possess the litigation skills and dedication to bring your claim successfully.
What Is a Birth Injury?
A birth injury occurs when a doctor or other medical profession fails to provide the proper level of care to a mother or her baby during the labor and delivery process, ultimately causing injury to the baby. There are many potential causes of birth injuries, including a lack of oxygen to the brain, physical trauma during the delivery and infection. Depending on the extent of the damage caused to the baby, these injuries can range from minor bumps and bruises to major life-changing injuries.
While there are many types of birth injuries, the following are among the most common:
• Preventable infections
• Cerebral palsy
• Erb’s palsy
• Brain damage
• Subconjunctival hemorrhage
• Brachial plexus injury
• Facial paralysis
If your child is suffering from any of these conditions, or you tragically lost your child during the labor and delivery process, you may be entitled to monetary compensation through a North Charleston medical malpractice lawsuit.
Damages in a South Carolina Birth Injury Case
While the tragedy of a birth injury is unfathomable to many families, depending on the severity of the injury, there is a very real possibility that a baby may never fully recover. Parents may be able to recover compensation for the injuries their child suffered, including amounts for the following:
• Medical and hospital bills
• Future medical expenses
• Cost of in-home care
• Pain and suffering
• Necessary adaptive technology
• Special education costs
• Loss of insurance benefits
• Lost wages
No two babies are the same, and no two birth injury cases are identical. At the Steinberg Law Firm, we take an individual approach to each case, taking the time to get to know you and your priorities before recommending any course of action.
