Pregnancy & Childbirth

Pregnancy and childbirth usually bring people into contact with medical professionals for the happiest of reasons, and most babies are born without serious complications.

Some birth injuries are unavoidable. However, sometimes birth injuries can be attributed to errors or omissions by doctors or other hospital staff.

Birth injury and trauma claims

When complications do arise resulting in a birth injury to the mother or the baby, the experience of childbirth can often turn into a traumatic and devastating event with far reaching consequences.

For example, one particular condition that may be the result of negligent medical treatment at birth is Cerebral Palsy. It is estimated that cerebral palsy affects 1 in every 500 babies born in the UK (data from Health UK). Cerebral palsy is a condition caused by a baby being starved of oxygen antenatally or during labour and results in varying degrees of damage to the brain. This is a lifelong condition which alters the lives of the whole family as well as the victim. Cerebral palsy is not always caused by negligent care but in some cases it is avoidable.
