Comprehensive Expertise in Birth Injury Claims at Berwick Solicitors

The birth of a child should be a moment of pure joy; however, medical negligence during the process can sometimes result in birth injuries, transforming what should be a joyful occasion into one of uncertainty and distress.

When facing the overwhelming emotional and financial strain of a birth injury, you need a team that not only understands the law but also knows how you feel.

Our team is comprised of experienced solicitors with expertise in medical negligence cases. This ensures that you receive individualised guidance and support throughout your legal journey.

Understanding the Complicated Nature of Birth Injury Claims

Birth injuries can be extremely medically and legally complex. Understanding whether the injury was the result of negligence or an unfortunate but unavoidable occurrence can be difficult. Our expertise comes into play at this point. Our attorneys will consult with medical professionals to evaluate the circumstances surrounding the birth injury and determine the optimal course of action for your case.

Providing Evidence of Medical Negligence in Birth Injuries

To successfully establish a claim, we must demonstrate that the healthcare provider breached their duty of care. This requires demonstrating that the defendant’s actions or omissions fell below the standard expected of a reasonable healthcare provider in a similar setting. Using our extensive network of medical experts, we rigorously evaluate the facts of each case and craft a persuasive compensation argument.

Answers to Your Most Urgent Concerns

Can You File a Birth Trauma Claim?

Yes, if it can be proven that the healthcare provider’s negligence caused or contributed to the birth trauma. From fractures to nerve injuries, the types of trauma can vary widely and each case is evaluated on its own merits.

How Much Compensation Is Available for Birth Injuries?

The amount of compensation for a birth injury varies based on a number of variables, including the severity of the injury, its long-term effects and any future care needs. While we are unable to provide a precise estimate without evaluating your specific situation, our experienced solicitors will provide an estimate based on similar cases we’ve handled.

What are the three different kinds of birth injuries?

  1. Mechanical injuries are caused by physical force and include fractures and nerve damage.
  2. Anoxic Injuries: Injuries caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain or other vital organs of the infant.
  3. Infection-Related Injuries: These occur when an infection in the mother or baby causes complications that compromise the health of the child.
