Birth injury compensation claims
Birth injuries fall into a specialist area of medical negligence
law and require experienced solicitors to deal with all aspects
of these, very complex and demanding cases. Our solicitors have
helped many parents obtain birth injury compensation, which have
enabled them to meet the needs of their children who have suffered a birth injury as well as helping mothers who have
suffered whilst being pregnant or giving birth.

She started to bleed from her vagina during labour. This continued and worsened
after delivery of the placenta – she suffered a major post partum haemorrhage with
a massive blood loss of 3 litres. In spite of having a major PPH and losing massive
amounts of blood after delivery, the Claimant’s carers were unaware of the clinical
