Birth Injury Compensation

Birth Injury Compensation

Birth injury compensation can be claimed when a mother, baby, or both have suffered injury during a birth due to medical negligence during the delivery.

Many parents find themselves faced with birth injuries and are unable to get the answers to the questions from the medical field that they need.

That is where the specialist medical negligence solicitors here at How To Claim Compensation come in. We are here to help parents and be on their side to ensure that if a family should be awarded any sort of compensation, it is done on a timely basis and handled correctly.

Birth Injury Compensation Claims – you need a specialist solicitor

Birth injury claims are difficult. They involve an incredibly emotional experience – most of us can hardly imagine what it must be like to have your baby injured at birth, especially if that’s down to an unavoidable mistake made by a doctor or other medical professional. In addition, any medical negligence claim is never easy – the UK medical profession still remain incredibly reluctant to ever admit mistakes and therefore these compensation claims against the NHS, or indeed against private hospitals and clinics, sadly have to be hard fought and can take some considerable time.

That’s why you need a genuine specialist to represent you. The leader of our medical negligence team, Denise Broomfield, is a specialist in birth injury claims. She is one of just 180 solicitors nationwide (out of over 100,000) who are members of both of the leading specialist panels for medical negligence solicitors – run by the Law Society and patient victim campaigning charity, Action against Medical Accidents.

Common causes of Birth Injury Claims

Birth injuries can affect not only the baby, but also the mother during any delivery. They can be caused by misuse of medical equipment such as forceps, medical inefficiencies, and other avoidable medical procedures.

A mother may have injuries such as vaginal tearing or incorrect suturing after an episiotomy and even infection may occur.

Babies themselves may suffer all sorts of birth injuries including;

  • cerebral palsy
  • facial palsy
  • umbilical cord complications
  • ruptured placenta
  • skin irritations
  • bone fractures
  • even brain trauma

No one wants to find themselves in the position of having to deal with claiming compensation for a birth injury, however, if you find you are in such a dilemma, why not ask our claims experts for help. It could make a big difference and make sure you are represented wisely and have a good chance of winning your claim for compensation.
