When this happens, families have questions and deserve full answers. If avoidable errors have been the cause, they are also entitled to compensation and support.

“They take care of everything – hassle free, very friendly and super helpful with any question you may have, and always keep you updated on what’s happening.”

At McGee Solicitors, we can help you if you have been a victim of birth negligence, providing expert legal advice to question and challenge the care provided. We can also help to secure compensation for the impact it has on their lives.

What is Birth Negligence?

Birth Injury Compensation ClaimsBirth negligence essentially means mistakes made by health professionals before, during or after birth.

Common mistakes seen by our team includes:-

  • Maternity staff failing to carry out tests quickly enough during pregnancy
  • Misinterpreting scans leading to an incorrect diagnosis and inappropriate treatment
  • Failure to act upon reduced foetal movements
  • Failure to take appropriate action when a mother’s blood pressure has been at dangerous levels.

Communication issues can also often be a contributory factor to things going wrong, and we see far too many cases where mothers and their partners feel their concerns have not been listened to early enough, or that they have been ignored completely.

Birth negligence can have a huge psychological impact on all involved, as well as the physical suffering caused. It can affect relationships, work, health and mental well-being.

Childbirth Claims

When a birth is less than straightforward, medical negligence can result in injuries to the mother, the baby or to both. If you or your baby have suffered injury because of a failure in your medical care, you may be entitled to compensation.

At McGee Solicitors we understand how difficult it is to suffer injury and complications at what should have been a wonderful time. Our medical negligence team are sympathetic and understanding as well as being experienced in the complex area of medical negligence in childbirth.

“From the very first phone call I felt at ease and was kept up to date with everything. Amazing help at every step, very friendly and reliable service. Also settled and sorted quickly with no hassles. Polite and professional.”

If you speak to us, we will go through what happened with you and let you know whether you can bring a claim for compensation. We have medical experts who we can instruct to prepare a report on your or your baby which we will use as a basis of your claim.
