Pregnancy & Birth
Pregnancy should be an exciting and fulfilling time for any mother. From the early stages, right through to preparation for childbirth and thereafter; those involved should feel informed and well looked-after by their medical team. However, there can unfortunately be occasions when substandard care is offered to mother and baby, meaning that avoidable harm or suffering is caused to either or both parties.
On these occasions, you may be entitled to bring a case forward to our medical negligence solicitors.
Fast and efficient case management
Below are a few examples of the pregnancy and birth cases we take on:
- Avoidable injury to mother
- Avoidable stillbirth
- Birth resulting in the death of a child
- Minor scarring to child due to c-section or instruments at delivery
- Retained placenta or retained products of conception
- Avoidable termination of pregnancy
In the above cases, a specialist cross network of medical negligence solicitors is assigned to work through the legal claims process in a fast and efficient manner. This means the process can be completed quickly and professionally, allowing you to move on from the negligent treatment you have suffered with as much ease as possible.
Complex and multifaceted case types
The below cases are often more complex; requiring more time and a wider expansion of third-party experts to untangle and conclude the case. These cases are therefore handled by our Serious Injury solicitors; who are specifically trained in the litigation of multifaceted negligence claims.
- Injuries to a child, save for death of the child, or minor scarring from c-section or instrumental delivery
- Preventable cerebral palsy
