Birth/Neonatal Injury Solicitors

The birth of a child is often considered as one of the happiest moments of your life, however this is not always the case and mothers, babies and family members can be left with physical and mental birth injuries.

There are a number of types of birth injury, some are temporary and others are permanent, lasting a lifetime. A few types of birth injury are:

  • Birth Trauma
  • C-section bowel injuries
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • Death of the mother during child birth
  • Erb’s Palsy (obstetric brachial plexus injury)
  • Failure to manage pre-eclampsia or other infections
  • Group B Strep Infection
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Incorrect suturing (stitching) following a tear, episiotomy or a c-section
  • Kernicterus
  • Vaginal tear (3rd & 4th degree tears)
  • Wrongful birth

Medical professionals have a duty of care and sometimes the standard of the care is so poor, it is negligent and it results in injury. Poor care can lead to devastating, life changing injuries and it’s at this point that patients should consider legal action.
