We Welcome Experienced Legal Nurse Consultant to our Medical Malpractice Team!
Our Law Firm has been honored to assist numerous clients impacted by medical malpractice, including families with children effected by cerebral palsy and other birth injuries caused by negligence during labor and delivery. As we continue our efforts to better serve our clients, we welcome Karen Dickerson, RN-BSN, JD as the newest member of our team.
Karen is a licensed Registered Nurse with over 28 years of clinical experience and extensive training in the Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Labor and Delivery Nursing. She has worked in a variety of positions throughout her career including Clinical Coordinator of a Gynecology Clinic and Hospital Nurse Supervisor for a large Trauma 1 Teaching Hospital.
After working as a Legal Nurse Consultant at a Charleston, South Carolina law firm, Karen decided to complement her nursing degree with a degree in the law. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the Charleston School of Law in 2007. Her legal education enhances her nursing expertise and gives her a unique ability to analyze complex medical-legal issues. Karen will be assisting our attorneys in all areas of the firm’s practice, but she has a special interest in obstetrical cases involving problems such as pre-eclampsia, cerebral palsy, birth injuries, birth hypoxia, and neonatal encephalopathy. We are confident Karen’s knowledge and medical expertise will be of great benefit to the clients we serve.
