Failure to warn about specific disabilities

Our medical negligence team specialises in claims relating to fetal medicine.

Sometimes parents have not been warned that a child will be born with a specific genetic disability. In some instances if they had been warned they would have terminated the pregnancy.

If you think you, or a member of your family has suffered due to the negligence of medical professionals, our specialist team of solicitors can help you recover the compensation you and your family deserve, Call us today or start your claim online and we will call you back.


There are many different birth or genetic defects a baby can have such as:

  • spina bifida
  • club feet
  • holes in the heart
  • Down's syndrome
  • Sickle cell disease

If your healthcare professional fails to diagnose a birth defect which should have been easy to diagnose (perhaps due to a faulty scanning machine or lack of staff training) then you may be able to make a medical negligence claim.

In situations like this, damages often provide for the costs associated with the welfare and healthcare of the disabled child.
