Birth Injuries

Doctors and midwives have a duty of care to you and/or your baby when giving birth and whilst pregnant. 

 

Sadly, mistakes can happen and not all mistakes occur during labour and delivery.  

 

A birth injury claim can result in damage inflicted on you and/or your baby.  

 

A pregnancy injury could be where an ectopic pregnancy is not diagnosed in good time resulting in the loss of a fallopian tube.

 

Physical injuries can include urinary/bowel incontinence and vaginal tears together with life changing injuries to your baby such as Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy or stillbirth and neonatal death.

 

There are also circumstances where a vasectomy, sterilisation or termination were not performed correctly resulting in an unwanted pregnancy.
