Samantha Critchley acted for the parents who lost their son as a result of undiagnosed pre-eclampsia during the last days of pregnancy which we alleged was negligent antenatal care. This caused a placental abruption in the mother and the intrauterine death of the baby.
After the birth, the mother also suffered a life threatening haemorrhage and other complications. Both parents suffered psychiatric injuries caused by the sudden and unexpected shock of witnessing the stillbirth of their child. With competent care, the baby should have been born, uninjured, by caesarean section.
The Trust apologised and admitted liability and we secured a settlement in the sum of £30,000. The case was conducted on a “no win, no fee” basis.
