Paul McNeil, Head of Personal Injury and Medical Negligence
Although rare, errors in treatment by medical professionals such as midwives and obstetricians can have traumatic consequences and cause injury to the mother, the baby or both during pregnancy, labour and birth or following birth.
If your midwife or doctor fails to treat you correctly or fails to diagnose a condition they should have resulting in injury, you may have a claim for clinical negligence.
Some birth injuries are unavoidable, but each year we pursue a number of cases where injuries are caused by medical negligence by the midwife, resulting in:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy (Brachial Plexus Injury/Shoulder Dystocia)
- Injuries to the mother
- Brain injuries
- Fractured/broken bones
Cerebral palsy is one of the most common injuries to a baby caused by medical negligence. Our expert team regularly deals with such cases and will fight for the highest award possible to provide the appropriate care, therapy and education to help your child to fulfil their potential.
