Pages On: Birth Injury

Having a child is mostly a magical experience, however, preventable complications can arise. Medical professionals hold a duty of care to all patients, and pregnant people are no different. Injuries during childbirth can occur to the mother and baby where doctors and nurses act negligently. It can have seriously damaging consequences for the life of the child, such oxygen starvation leading to cerebral palsy. Such conditions can render a child essentially helpless, needing constant care. This not only removes the livelihood of the child, but the parents also. If you’ve suffered a birth injury, and feel medical negligence is to blame, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Birth Injury Compensation

Posted in: Birth InjuryMedical Negligence

It is often said that no amount of compensation can make good the damage / injury caused by another party’s negligence and this is perhaps more true of birth injuries than any other. The birth of a new baby is special for everyone involved and this can be tainted by the negligence of a medical professional. Whilst compensation may not be able to undo all the harm that has been caused it may go some way towards helping the parties to move on. Medical Negligence at Birth A birth injury…

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
