South Carolina Birth Injury Lawyer
Doctors are human. There are situations that they have no control over and where even if they performed their jobs to perfection serious injury or death would still occur. This fact has some of its most tragic implications in the context of childbirth. But as we have said, doctors are human and sometimes their human shortcomings cause them to make mistakes - mistakes that can be devastating to their patients.
If something went terribly wrong during your child's birth, do not rely on the doctor's or hospital's explanation. It is very important that you contact a lawyer who has experience with birth trauma cases like yours as soon as possible.
At the Rosen Law Firm, we represent families from throughout South Carolina in birth injury cases and fight to obtain the kind of substantial compensation needed to deal with these life-long injuries. Because these cases often involve high dollar amounts, hospitals and insurance companies have a tendency to fight them at every opportunity. Many times this will mean going to
trial — something, our lawyers are perfectly comfortable with.
As a firm, we have over 60 years of courtroom experience and skill to draw from in malpractice cases resulting in birth complications such as:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brain damage
- Erb's Palsy/shoulder dystocia
- Brachial Plexus Palsy
- Forcep injuries
- Failure to diagnose Pre-eclampsia in the mother
- Failure to diagnose fetal distress
- Failure to diagnose placental abruption
- Failure to perform a C-section
- Vision loss/blindness
Our birth injury practice is managed by Attorney Susan Rosen. Ms. Rosen works hard to help her clients. For example, she was able to secure a $4,000,000 settlement for child who was born with severe injuries caused by the failure of the physicians and hospital to perform an emergency cesarean delivery. As a client, you can trust that Ms. Rosen knows that getting "a result" is rarely the same thing as getting the "right result." We will not settle your case quickly just to avoid trial. Rather, we will fight to make certain that whatever amount we seek in court or negotiate for will help provide the resources to meet your needs both today and in the future.
