When things don’t go right with your medical treatement, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

When things go wrong the outcome can be devastating for families. A range of issues can occur during pregnancy or childbirth; some of which can have severe side effects for the mother and / or baby. In some instances, the injuries sustained by a mother or child during birth can lead to lifelong issues and permanent disability and in some cases can tragically result in death. Some of the most common causes of injury during pregnancy and childbirth include:

  • premature delivery
  • late or no caesarean section
  • use of forceps
  • use of ventouse
  • epidural
  • maternal infection, for example, Group B Strep
  • mismanagement of labour

The above can result in maternal death, stillbirth or neonatal death, cerebral palsy, perineal tears which in turn can lead to bladder / bowel injuries, shoulder dystocia, erbs palsy and many other life changing injuries.
