Medical negligence at child birth

Medical negligence at child birth

Having a baby is one of life’s most precious moments. However, the joy of welcoming a child can sometimes be overshadowed by an unexpected trauma during delivery and birth. And the consequences can be devastating.

If this has happened to you, there are ways we can help, particularly if your newborn is facing a lifelong disability. We have specialist Medical Negligence lawyers that has both the experience and expertise to guide you through what can be a harrowing ordeal.

To begin the process, we will ask you for details and your recollections of the birth and the treatment you received during and after the delivery. We will also obtain the medical records of you and your child from the hospital where your baby was born. Usually, when clients come in to see us they have a fair idea of what they believe was negligent.

Compensation can be awarded for pain and suffering, any past care provided, future care required, future medical services required and past and future economic loss.

While the claim is progressing, you may have dealings with your lawyer and support staff from our firm, all of whom you will find to be highly supportive and understanding.


To give you piece of mind about engaging our services and show you how we can help, your first consultation with one of our expert personal injury lawyers is absolutely FREE.


To give you further peace of mind, we can also work on an arrangement of NO WIN – NO FEE (some conditions apply). This means that if no compensation is awarded, you are not required to pay any legal fees to us.
