Giving birth, whilst often a wonderful experience can sometimes be incredibly distressing and difficult, especially if your child has been injured due to the negligence of a medical professional involved in your labour, such as your midwife or doctor.
Expectant mothers and their partners, naturally put their trust in their midwife or doctor involved in their antenatal and postnatal care. But if their negligent actions cause the standards of the care you are receiving to slip, birth mother and child can be at risk.
Our Solicitors have helped families claim for a whole range of birth injuries including:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erbs Palsy
- Broken bones
- Lack of oxygen
This is no doubt a very tough time for you and your family, and the lasting effects of any injury your child has received during birth because of medical negligence may not be fully realised yet. If you believe that you have experienced negligence during your labour and as a result, your child has been injured, you will, of course, be feeling incredibly upset, hurt and distressed. Your child may still be in hospital and may need more treatment in the longer term.
It is important to us at T G Baynes that we are sensitive to the needs of you, your family and your child at this difficult time. We are experienced in helping families to understand what happened in your child’s labour and obtaining the compensation your child deserves to ensure that rehabilitation and care can be provided for as long as is necessary.
We will always listen to you and your family and we will guide you through the legal process from start to finish, providing you with the full facts of the case at all times and being on hand to provide the legal support you may need at this time.
