Birth related claims of medical negligence arise from complications during delivery or the negligent action of health care professionals prior to the delivery of a child.
Problems not detected during pregnancy often include a failure to detect serious abnormalities pre-birth, negligently handled births, mistakes made during ante-natal care, injury or death due to medical instruments, anaesthetics or inadequate suturing.
We at Berwick Solicitors, Galway have seen cases involving birth injuries such as fractured bones, brain injury, scarring due to misuse of medical implements and nerve damage. If there are medical complications during labour and / or delivery, this can lead to a wide variety of problems.

To prove medical negligence for your injury arising from birth, a medical expert report must be obtained. That expert must prove that an error was made either prior to, at or post birth and that the injury has arisen as a direct consequence of that negligence.
