Birthing and obstetrics claims

Make your claim >>

At Harwood Solicitors we understand that any medical negligence claim is likely to be of a sensitive nature and birth injury claims in particular are deeply personal and emotional. We aim to deal with any matter with the utmost respect and sensitivity and ensure that the process is as stress free as possible.

When babies are injured by medical mistakes made during labour or delivery, it is crucial to obtain the best legal advice and as soon as possible.

Examples of successful birth injury claims include:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brain Injuries
  • Fractures to the skull, legs, arms, shoulder and collarbone
  • Cuts and Scars
  • Hip Dysplasia

Cerebral Palsy and Brain Injury

These are complex claims and Harwood Solicitors will endeavour to secure the best possible results. Not all cases of Cerebral Palsy in childbirth are caused by medical negligence however negligent errors include:

  • Failure to note changes in CTGs
  • Delays to performing emergency Caesarean sections
  • Errors in using forceps or ventouse
  • Errors in managing Caesarean sections
  • Delays in performing instrument deliveries using forceps or ventouse
  • Failure to perform CTGs to monitor baby’s heartbeat

Through the course of your claim we will investigate thoroughly to ensure that you and your child receive the best care possible. Where possible, we will seek to obtain part-payment of damages at an early stage (known as interim payments) to support you in providing care or treatment at home, adapt your home and to provide necessary rehabilitation aids and equipment.
