Get Expert Legal Help for your Childbirth Negligence Claims

Going through the process of birth can be highly rewarding and unforgettable experience. Sadly, not all instances are and this can sometimes be due to the negligent actions of another person. If a medical professional fails to carry out the relevant procedure and process during both pregnancy and childbirth, it can lead to serious consequences for the mother and the child.

For the mother, it may be that she was wrongly injured during birth, experienced perineal tears, been wrongly anaesthetised, failing to recognise damage to the organs at the correct time, failure to treat an infection, negligent screening and mismanaged pregnancy complications.

For the child, it may be that the child has suffering injuries during the birth, fractures to any part of the body, fatalities, perforations, brain injuries, incorrectly induced labour, improper use of forceps and/or negligent caesarean sections.

Each case is different and any compensation is based on the severity of the injury and the impact it has had on your life. You may be able to claim other losses such as loss of earnings, care, treatment and/or house adaptations.

If you have suffered from any of the above, please contact us on 01706 711 176 for an assessment of your case. All our medical negligence claims are funded by a No Win No Fee, so there is no financial risk to you.

Clinical & Medical Negligence

Clinical Negligence, also known as Medical Negligence, is when a medical professional or body fails in their duty of care, causing harm or injury either directly or indirectly.

Medical professionals and bodies have a duty to provide a high level of service to their patients, in a way that does not cause further harm. If they fail in this duty and you, your loved ones or family are injured or killed because of this negligence, this is known as Clinical (or Medical) Negligence.

One example of clinical negligence would be when a doctor performs an unnecessary operation on a patient, causing harm. Every case is unique, making it important to work closely with our Clinical & Medical Negligence specialists who will do their best to listen to your story and get you the compensation you deserve.

How to Start a Medical Negligence Claim?

The first step of making a claim for clinical & medical negligence is to get in touch with a solicitor or solicitor firm that can handle your case, such as ASL. We will then assign a specialist solicitor to record the details and severity of your case and try to understand what went wrong.

With this information, our team will start building your case and investigating the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
