Our team of experienced Medical Negligence solicitors understands the complexities of pregnancy and birth injury claims and offers free legal advice.


Types of Birth Injuries

During birth, both mother and child can suffer from injuries such as perineal tears, fissures, organ damage from caesarean sections or failure to notice damage at the time, errors in anaesthesia, wrongly performed episiotomies, cerebral palsy, brain injuries, fractures to the skull, legs, or upper body, cuts and scarring, hip dysplasia, and fatalities.


Eligibility Criteria for Birth Injury Claims

Before we take on your claim, we would establish if the medical professional owed you a legal duty of care, which they breached by failing to provide the standard of care required, resulting in worsened injuries due to their negligence.


Clinical Errors that Could Cause Birth Injuries

Inadequate standard of care during delivery, incorrect medication, and treatment, mishandling of medication and treatment, failing to recognize dangerous medical issues in the mother or child, hospital infections due to poor hygiene, and causing unnecessary bowel or bladder injuries during surgery are some of the clinical errors that could cause birth injuries.


Documents and Evidence Required for Birth Injury Claims

To help us build a strong case, it is advisable to provide us with photographs of visible injuries, witness statements, a copy of the complaint report, a medical report, and a record of the financial losses incurred as a result of the injury.

Average Payout for a Birth Injury Claim

Compensation for birth injury claims is usually split into two types of damages: general and special. The severity of your injuries will determine the compensation you receive. General damages are compensation for pain and suffering, while special damages are compensation for financial losses such as loss of earnings, extra medical expenses, home modifications, and travel expenses associated with your medical care.


Time Limits for Birth Injury Compensation Claims

You have three years from the date the negligence first occurred or the date when you were first aware of your injuries caused by medical negligence to make a birth injury compensation claim. Children have until their 21st birthday to make a claim for birth injury compensation. You can also claim on behalf of your child before they turn 18 as their litigation friend, particularly in cases where your child does not have the mental capacity to represent themselves. The three-year time limit does not apply in such cases.
