At our Charleston, South Carolina, law firm, our lawyers represent people who have been injured or made ill by the negligence of a medical professional. We have many years of experience and a record of accomplishment with such cases.
Taking action against those who injured you
Defendants in our cases include hospitals, doctors, nurses, clinics and other practitioners and institutions. We represent individuals and their families whose medical provider failed to provide the accepted standard of care and caused injury, illness or death. At Uricchio, Howe, Krell, Jacobson, Toporek & Keith P.A., our attorneys know that clients want answers about the adverse outcome of what they thought was a routine visit, procedure or surgery.
Examples of medical malpractice cases
Although our lawyers cannot answer every question, we advise clients about their rights, their options and their likelihood of success in the case. We talk about the results in similar cases. Our firm has secured compensation for people injured because of:

Birth injuries—a type of medical malpractice
Our firm also handles birth injuries. The most frequent injuries to newborns are cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia, erb’s palsy and brain injuries. Such conditions are caused by a lack of oxygen or injury to nerves from:
- Failure to perform a c-section in a timely way
- Failure to diagnose fetal distress
- Misuse of forceps and extractors
