Sometimes, issues arising during pregnancy or after delivery can be dismissed as simply ‘par for the course’. Unfortunately, negligence can, and does, arise in the medical management of women in pregnancy, during labour and birth, or in those first early months when a baby has arrived. Very often, complications arising before or after birth can be devastating if they are not promptly identified and quickly treated.
We have acted for mums who have suffered long-lasting injuries as a result of errors made during their pregnancy, and/or once their baby is born. We have also acted for parents whose newborn baby has been affected by a failure to diagnose or treat health concerns or issues identified during the mother’s pregnancy or at the time of delivery.
We have acted for parents whose children have suffered lifelong injuries, and those who have suffered the devastating effects of stillbirth.
We have a wealth of experience in dealing with claims of this nature and, as parents ourselves, we can give our clients the best and most sympathetic advice when pursuing their claim.
