Birth Injury Lawyers
Our birth injury lawyers at the Strom Law Firm are familiar with litigating South Carolina personal injury cases and can often help victims recover substantially more compensation than they would be able to retain on their own, so it is highly advisable for anyone injured in an accident to discuss their options with one of our birth injury lawyers.
A birth injury caused by a mistake or negligence during the birthing process can change your life forever. A birth injury can leave you with the added expenses of therapy, nursing care, and medication. A medical mistake can require surgery, 24-hour care, and recurrent medical problems and may leave you worrying about how to best care for your child.
A birth injury may occur when a physician does not react sufficiently to signs of a patient’s distress or when care is not provided correctly during pregnancy or the birthing process. These factors may result in overwhelming effects on the mother and/or child.
Some birth injuries that may occur as a result of substandard care also known as medical malpractice include:
- Pediatric Bone fractures
- Bruising and skin irritation
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain Damage
- Internal bleeding
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Erbs Palsy
Birth Injury Consequences
Unfortunately, most birth injuries do not painlessly fade away within a few years. The majority of birth injuries continue to affect children for the rest of their life. That means your child will be dealing with the physical and emotional effects of these injuries for decades. There will likely be a significant amount of pain and discomfort. The injury may even affect your child’s ability to attend college or earn a living.
Birth injuries also lead to severe medical bills. The cost of treatment, surgery, rehabilitation, or lifetime care will add up quickly. The medical malpractice lawyers at the Strom Law Firm, L.L.C. want to help you and your children with this burden.
