Birth Negligence

The birth of your child should be a special time in your life, but if there are bumps in the road it can make the whole experience traumatic for mother, baby and family members.

Sometimes, due to the negligence of a medical professional things can go wrong.

If this happens to you, rest assured that you are able to take legal action and make a birth injury claim to receive the justice and compensation you deserve.

Birth Injury Solicitors

The thought of something going wrong during the birth of a child is very distressing, especially for the mother and close family.

We understand that although life doesn’t always go according to plan, a situation can be made worse if the birth problems were caused by errors or mishandling by medical professionals.

Here at AWH, our birth injury solicitors can help you gain the answers, compensation and financial support you may need for a brighter future for your family.

We pride ourselves in being sensitive, understanding and passionate about justice for our clients as we want you to feel completely at ease with our solicitors.

Claim Compensation for Birthing Injuries

Unfortunately, there are some birth-related injuries which affect either mother, child or both which cannot be avoided.

But when a preventable birthing injury has occurred because of negligence, misdiagnosis or sheer carelessness, then you are within your rights to claim compensation.

If you or your child requires ongoing specialist treatments following birth negligence or injury, then compensation and justice is absolutely necessary.

We can help you get your life back on track after such a traumatising experience.

Our birth injury solicitors have experience in cases that have involved the following;

Injuries to child

  • Cerebral palsy and birth asphyxia claims
  • Head injury caused by improper use of forceps or ventouse
  • Fractures
  • Newborn hypoglycemia
  • Erb’s palsy claims
  • Neonatal death claims

Injuries to mother

  • Injuries to organs from Caesarean section (C-Section)
  • Perineal tears
  • Anaesthetic errors
  • Fissures

Birth negligence arises in these situations where there has been a failure, due to error or incompetence, to adequately monitor and assess the final stages of delivery.

Our compassionate birth injury solicitors are experienced in supporting families and securing compensation for the injuries caused and for future financial losses and rehabilitation and care.
