Pregnancy and Birth Injuries

Having a baby should be one of the most special times in your life, but much too often new mothers have experienced the distress, trauma and anxiety of giving birth to a child with health difficulties. In some cases this is inevitable due to genetics etc. however in many cases it is as a result of poor medical care and medical negligence. Such trauma may also lead to extra costs for you and your family in dealing with your child’s health condition. At Claimant Law we understand how life changing and devastating this can be and we want to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Pregnancy and birth injuries can have lifelong impacts and so if you or your child have suffered from such an injury as a result of inadequate or inappropriate care then you may be entitled to compensation.

Conditions such as cerebral palsy, and Erb’s palsy – paralysis of the arm, can be caused by complications during birth. Birth injuries such as these can, unfortunately, have life-long consequences.

Claiming compensation can help relieve financial pressure caused by an injury which could have been avoided.

To establish whether you have experienced substandard medical care, the first step is to understand the level of care were entitled to have received compared to what you actually received.

By definition ‘birth injuries’ mean any physical injury or psychological trauma to a mother or a child suffered during labour or childbirth.
We have a network of leading medical negligence specialists, with extensive experience in pregnancy and birth injury claims. So your expert here at Claimant Law will understand the challenges you face, and will be there every step of your journey to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
