How do birth injuries happen?

Occasionally, mistakes are made in antenatal care, during labour and delivery, or soon after birth. If a baby, its mother (or both) are injured because of such a mistake and it causes them physical and/or psychological injury, they are said to have suffered a birth injury or trauma. A birth injury can have a life-changing impact on the whole family.

Some children are severely disabled from birth and require care for life. A mother who is injured during birth can suffer pain and ongoing problems, or may need surgery because of the damage.

Complex claims need birth injury specialists

Our birth injury lawyers have the specialist knowledge and expertise to build a strong medical negligence claim for you and will help guide and support you throughout your case. Whilst we can't turn back the clock, the financial compensation achieved from a successful birth injury claim can help ease the burden of the costs of care and equipment for families who have been affected.
