What is birth injury negligence?

Birth injury negligence refers to the failure of medical professionals to provide adequate care during childbirth, resulting in harm to the mother or baby. This can include errors in monitoring, medication administration, or surgical procedures. Negligence can lead to serious and lifelong injuries, such as cerebral palsy or brain damage.

At Moore Barlow, we take birth injury compensation claims extremely seriously and our professional team of birth injury lawyers will do their utmost to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

What is a birth injury compensation claim?

A birth injury compensation claim is a legal process where the mother or the parents / guardians of a child who has suffered an injury during birth can seek financial compensation from the healthcare provider or hospital responsible for the injury. The compensation is intended to cover the costs of medical treatment, ongoing care, and other related expenses.

Birth injuries to the mother can warrant a claim and these can include:

  • Perineal tears and episiotomy
  • Damage to the pelvic floor
  • Haemorrhoids (piles)
  • Bladder and bowel problems
