Claims for injuries to a child during birth
Although giving birth can be an incredible experience for any individual, it also has the potential to be one of the most dangerous times in the life of an individual. The delivery of a child can be a very dangerous time and that’s why it’s essential that the appropriate medical procedures are made during this time to ensure that the delivery is as safe as possible – if precautions aren’t taken then it can have a serious impact on mother and baby.
If you feel that you have been the victim of negligence during this time, and as a result your child has sustained injuries during the birth procedure, you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs you have incurred.
IN WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES COULD A CLAIM BE MADE?
There are different circumstances where you could find yourself the victim and may look to make a compensation claim. Some common examples of where you could do this include:
- Claims for errors made during delivery
- Claims for injuries sustained by a child during delivery
- Claims for errors during a caeserian birth
- Claims for the use of improper tools
- Claims for the user of improper techniques
WHO COULD I CONSIDER A CLAIM AGAINST?
You might consider making a compensation claim against a number of different people depending on the circumstances of your accident, but in general your claim will most likely be made against the midwife or any delivery room staff who have been negligent towards you. There are a number of different people who can contribute to this type of accident and if you feel that you have been the victim in this way then you could consider a claim.
