South Carolina Birth Injury Lawyer
Birth Injury Lawyers
If your baby is injured during the birthing process or prior to birth due to carelessness, neglect or an intentional act by a medical professional or healthcare provider, you have every right to take legal action. Even if the injuries sustained were accidental and without any kind of criminal act, there is still grounds for a lawsuit. The birth injury attorneys at Joe and Martin Injury Attorneys handle all types of birth injury lawsuits throughout South Carolina.
Birth Injury Liability
Just like with any injury case, liability for a birth injury falls to the party that is responsible for causing it. Any and all liable parties can be made to pay financial compensation to the injured person – or their immediate family – for damages. When the injured person is a newborn infant, compensation can be sought for past and future medical expenses, disability and disfigurement, diminished quality of life, and loss of future earnings.
