Brain Injury Law

Attorney Harry Rosen's personal injury law practice expertise includes traumatic brain injury, neurological disorders, and spinal cord injury. Mr. Rosen has extensive experience handling Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) lawsuits and provides complete legal services to the survivors of traumatic brain injury and their families in Weston, Pembroke Pines, Fort Lauderdale and throughout South Florida.

If you or your loved one has suffered a head injury or related injury, it is very important that a lawyer is contacted as quickly as possible since the circumstances of an accident or injury must be investigated promptly or valuable evidence may be forever lost. While the injured individual and family are naturally consumed with medical and other concerns, it is important that attention is directed to retaining an attorney with experience handling traumatic brain injury and head injury cases.

It is appropriate to consult an attorney in many situations where a traumatic brain injury has been sustained, not only in those cases where it is obvious that there will be legal action, such as a motor vehicle accident. There are many circumstances in which the public may not be aware that they have legal rights, but a competent attorney can investigate the facts and determine whether or not the individual has rights to compensation. For example, brain injuries related to violence, falls, work, sports, or negligent medical treatment may all give rise to claims for compensation. Further, depending on the extent of the injury, the individual may have a right to public or private benefits including social security disability benefits, Medicare, private health insurance or private disability insurance payments. That is why it is important that an attorney is consulted as soon as possible even in circumstances where it may not first appear that there is a claim or where the injury was solely an "accident".

I have handled many traumatic brain injury cases.

An example of one of my first cases which occurred more than 40 years ago involved a 10-year-old boy who was run over by a truck sustaining traumatic brain damage resulting in a settlement for the full policy limits of $1,100,000.

Birth Injuries

A Birth Injury Lawyer With Proven Success

Birth injury refers to an injury of a child before, during and after delivery. In the U.S., it is reported that 6 out of 1,000 births involve birth injuries. From bruises or small scratches to severe injuries including fractures, facial paralysis, spinal cord damage, cerebral palsy and Erb's Palsy, these very unfortunate cases do happen. When they do, you should look for an attorney like Harry Rosen of Harry Rosen Law in Weston, Florida. Mr. Rosen has over 40 years of experience in specialized personal injury cases such as those involving birth defects. He has tried and settled cases on behalf of his clients for millions of dollars.

As an example, Mr. Rosen represented an infant's family who was born with lifetime brain injuries as a result of the negligence of the obstetrician and hospital. He successfully recovered $4,300,000.00 in damages for the family.

Causes of Birth Injuries

The following are some of the conditions that cause a birth injury accident:

  • Prematurity - a baby born before they are 37 weeks old
  • Abnormal birthing - such as a buttocks first delivery
  • Large babies - a baby weighing over or about 8 pounds
  • Dystocia - difficult childbirth
  • Prolonged labor - This is called failure to progress and occurs when labor goes on for over 20 hours

If a birth injury has occurred as the result of medical treatment that is negligent or not according to accepted standards of medical care and results in serious injury due to the doctor, hospital or other medical professional deviating from the acceptable standards of care, you may be entitled to a considerable amount of compensation.

Common Birth Injuries

Some of the common birth defects include:

  • Bruising or forceps marks - bruising on the head or face because of the trauma of going through the birth canal
  • Brain injury - This occurs when the baby has insufficient oxygen. Prolonged deprivation of oxygen leads to brain damage and brain disorders like epilepsy and cerebral palsy
  • Facial paralysis - When a mother is in labor, the pressure on the baby's face could cause injuries on their facial nerve. Facial paralysis is also caused by the use of forceps for delivering the child.

If a birth injury has occurred as the result of medical treatment that is negligent or not according to accepted standards of medical care and results in serious injury due to the doctor, hospital or other medical professional deviating from the acceptable standards of care, you may be entitled to a considerable amount of compensation.
