It is often said that no amount of compensation can make good the damage / injury caused by another party’s negligence and this is perhaps more true of birth injuries than any other. The birth of a new baby is special for everyone involved and this can be tainted by the negligence of a medical professional. Whilst compensation may not be able to undo all the harm that has been caused it may go some way towards helping the parties to move on.

Medical Negligence at Birth

A birth injury compensation claim can be made where there has been negligence on the part of a medical professional, be it a doctor, midwife, nurse, anaesthetist or other medical professional. Birth injuries include injuries sustained to the mother or the child or both. These injuries can occur during pregnancy, during labour or after birth and can include:

  • - Maternal or Gestational Diabetes
  • - Wrongful Birth
  • - Uterine Rupture
  • - Cerebral Palsy
  • - Tears
  • - Congenital Hip Dysplasia
  • - Erb’s Palsy
  • - Brain Damage
  • - Nerve Damage
  • - Stillbirth

 

Birth Injury Compensation

no win no fee cardiffA birth injury compensation claim can be made with the assistance of a personal injury claims Cardiff solicitor** who will help to establish negligence and will ensure that you are awarded the full amount of compensation. The actual amount of compensation you will be awarded will depend on the seriousness of the injury. For example, the amount of compensation that will be awarded for a needle blunder would be in the region of £3,000 whereas compensation for Erb’s Palsy could be over £500,000.

The compensation sum will be in line with government guidelines and in addition you are entitled to recover any consequential loss such as future medical expenses and any adjustments that might have to be made to the home. The compensation will be paid out by the medical organisation’s insurance company.
