Birth Injury Claims & Compensation

The birth of a child can is a very special and emotional time. However, if things don’t go smoothly it can bring unimaginable anguish. It is unfortunate that sometimes due to the negligence of a trust medical professional, it is necessary to take legal action and make a birth injury claim for compensation.

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. Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan and this is made worse if the problems were caused by errors or mishandling by medical professionals. Carter Law’s birth injury solicitors can help you gain the answers, compensation and financial support you may need for a brighter future for your family.

We have a great deal of experience in handling such cases and have a track record of successes.

Claim Compensation for Birthing Injuries

Unfortunately, some injuries at birth to either mother or child cannot be avoided. But when a preventable birthing injury has occurred because of negligence, misdiagnosis or sheer carelessness, then you can claim for compensation. 

This compensation will  pay for ongoing specialist treatments that may be necessary for you, or your child, and help you to 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 hypoglycaemia
  • Erb’s palsy claims
  • Neonatal death claims

Injuries to mother;

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

Medical 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.

Carter Law’s team of medical negligence solicitors are also able to offer our clients a range of other services too, including claims for negligence during pregnancy and gynaecology claims.
