Birth Injuries

Thankfully the majority of births that take place in the UK result in happy mothers and babies, forming one of the happiest moments in the parents’ lives. However, when something goes wrong that results in a birth injury, the results can be incredibly distressing and traumatic especially for the close family members.

There are different types of birth injuries which affect the mother and baby, and vary in severity. Minor birth injuries such as bruising to the mother or baby are fairly common and normally heal quickly. But more serious injuries can have long-lasting implications for the mother or baby and cause huge upset for those involved.

For the mother, birth injuries which may be due to medical negligence include nerve damage, fissures, infections and improper use of forceps, while for the baby the consequences can include cerebral palsy, brain damage, spinal cord injuries, and skin irritations.

Birth Injury Claims

When a personal injury occurs at what should be the most joyous moment of your life, it’s natural not to think of compensation straightaway. However, if the birth injury to the mother or baby was due to medical negligence, you may be entitled to birth injury compensation which will help alleviate any financial burdens during this difficult time.

The birth injury could be caused by complications that are not anyone’s fault, such as the baby being born prematurely or being unusually large. But sometimes, the medical profession fails in its duty of care – whether this is before, during or after the birth – which is when birth injury compensation can be claimed.

If you’ve suffered a birth injury as a result of a medical professional’s negligence, you have a right to claim for compensation – and we will do everything we can to make the process clear, easy and stress-free as we understand the devastating nature of your claim and your need for a successful outcome.

Our usual No Win No Fee policy applies for all medical negligence claims, for your peace of mind during this difficult time.
