Medical Negligence – Birth Trauma

Having a baby is one of life’s most precious moments.

Yet, from time to time, the joy of welcoming a child can be overshadowed by a trauma during delivery and birth.

And the consequences can be devastating.

If this has happened to you, there are ways we can help, particularly if your newborn is facing a lifelong disability.

We have a specialised Medical Negligence Team that has both the experience and expertise to guide you through what can be a harrowing ordeal.

If we believe you may have a claim, you will be offered a no win, no fee agreement.

This means that if no compensation is awarded, you are not required to pay any legal fees to us.

To begin the process, we will ask you for details and your recollections of the birth and the treatment you received during and after the delivery.

We will also obtain the medical records of you and your child from the hospital where your baby was born.

Usually, when clients come in to see us they have a fair idea of what they believe was negligent.

Compensation can be awarded for pain and suffering, any past care provided, future care required, future medical services required and past and future economic loss.

While the claim is progressing, you may have dealings with various solicitors and support staff from our firm, all of whom you will find to be highly supportive and understanding.

So, if you believe that your child or someone you know has suffered a medical negligence birth trauma injury which has had devastating effects, then please contact us today.
