Birth Injuries

Mistakes made during childbirth can cause injury to both the mother and the child, which can result in long-term conditions, such as cerebral palsy.

If you, or your child, has suffered due to an accident before, during or after labour, you could be entitled to compensation. We understand money cannot make up for the pain and suffering caused, but it can help provide for expenses that have come about due to the incident.


Our birth injury solicitors have helped many mothers and children who have been injured during childbirth.

Injuries to the child include:

  • Birth asphyxia
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Forceps injury
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Stillbirth

Injuries to the mother include:

  • Caesarean errors
  • Episiotomy
  • Fissures
  • Infections
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Vaginal tearing


There is a duty of care expected from medical staff, including midwives and obstetricians, to pregnant women and unborn children. If something has been missed in the months leading up to birth, or a mistake was made during labour, you have the right to find out what went wrong and receive suitable compensation for the pain and suffering caused.

We have handled many birth injury claims, helping families receive financial support for loss of earnings, medical bills and rehabilitation, as well as securing funding for changes to accommodation and transportation.
