Birth injuries are very complex and demanding cases that require the specialist knowledge of experienced solicitors to ensure you are rightly compensated.
Our solicitors have successfully settled many birth injury claims.
During birth there can be injury to the mother, the baby or both. Some of these birth injuries are unavoidable, but there are a number of cases where injuries are caused by medical negligence.
Birth injuries to the mother can have devastating and life-long consequences.
Mothers are entitled to seek compensation for birth injuries they have suffered. As a mother, the injuries you can claim for include; incorrect suturing (stitching) subsequent to a Caesarean section, failure to manage pre-eclampsia or other infections, perineal tears which if not treated properly can lead to longstanding problems; retained products of conception, in the event of a miscarriage there is the risk of tissue remaining in the uterus which can lead to bleeding and infection; nervous shock following a traumatic birth.
Mothers are also entitled to seek compensation for the psychological affects of a traumatic delivery. Mothers who struggle with psychological birth injuries suffer understandable stress and are more likely to endure depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
We have successfully concluded many birth injury negligence cases and are experts in the field.
We will ensure that you receive adequate compensation for your pain and suffering as a result of your birth injury.
