We have vast experience in cases where the injury has resulted from poor medical treatment during childbirth, including mis-managed labour leading to oxygen deprivation to the baby, brachial plexus injury involving shoulder dystocia as well as complications following caesarean section, forceps delivery and ventouse delivery.
To establish liability it must be shown that the care was sub-standard and, further, that the sub-standard care caused or contributed to the injury. Not all children injured at birth can establish liability and recover compensation. The medical treatment provided will be assessed by our specialist team and be independently reviewed by a team of nationally-renowned medical experts. Our team has vast experience of assembling and coordinating multi-disciplinary teams of professionals during the preparation and progression of high-value medical negligence claims. We offer free advice at no obligation.
