Birth Injury Claims

The birth of a baby is a joyous occasion and a very special time for the parents and the family members.  In the vast majority of cases, things go perfectly fine during pregnancy and child birth. But, there are times when things don’t go as planned.  An injury occurring to the baby or the mother during pregnancy or child birth can be devastating.

If you or your new born has suffered birth injuries as a result of clinical negligence, you may be entitled to pursue birth injury claims.

Making A Claim

Being pregnant can be a daunting experience and this is the time when a mother has to put all her faith in her doctor or midwife.

If your doctor or midwife has failed to diagnose a condition such as maternal diabetes or has failed to treat you correctly, you may be entitled to make birth injury claims.
