Traumatic brain injuries have begun receiving more media coverage, and are also becoming better understood by our medical community. Nonetheless, no parent ever wants to find out their child has suffered a head injury. In South Carolina, a claim for "damages" may be filed against the negligent party that caused your child harm. As a parent, you may obtain compensation for your son or daughter's medical expenses. Likewise, your child is legally entitled to compensation for his/her lost quality of life, physical pain, permanent harm, and decreased earning ability.
If you have questions about a brain injury your child sustained, or what your rights are as a parent, my firm is here to help. We are based in Columbia, but help families in need throughout South Carolina. Call me today for a free consultation at (803) 790-2800.
