Even when things go well, birth can be a traumatic experience for all concerned. When something goes wrong, parents need to know whether it was genuinely unavoidable or the result of medical negligence. Here at Hart Brown our team of experienced medical negligence solicitors are able to help you find the answers.
Our dedicated team of expert clinical negligence lawyers will help guide you through the legal process. The hospital will sometimes admit that the delivery was mishandled but say that it made no difference to the baby’s condition. We understand that if a baby is injured this can have a devastating effect not only on them but also on their parents and other family members.
As the victims of birth injuries will often suffer the consequences for many years, these claims can result in multi-million-pound awards and settlements. Depending on the severity of the injuries, a baby may be left requiring a series of operations, additional care from their parents and significant limitations on the things they can enjoy in later life. Our medical negligence solicitors are experts at assembling the evidence in support of these claims with a view to getting our clients the life-changing compensation their child deserves to reflect the life-changing injuries they have suffered.
Examples of birth injury cases that we have handled successfully include:
- Approximately £5 million recovered for a 7-year-old girl in respect of a delay in delivery
- Approximately £5 million recovered for a 37-year-old man whose parents had originally been advised by others that he had no claim
- £237,500 damages for a child left with Erb’s Palsy
