Claims for injuries to a mother during birth

Giving birth can be one of the most enjoyable – and painful – experiences that a person might ever experience, and it’s something that the majority of women will go through in their lifetime. Although in most cases modern technology and advancements in medicine mean that giving birth is generally a safe and secure procedure, unfortunately this is not always the case, and if you do find that you are the victim of negligence here, you may consider making a claim for compensation.

Whenever you are in the care of a healthcare professional you are entitled to the best possible treatment available, and if you feel this hasn’t been the case, you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover your costs.

IN WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES COULD A CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION BE MADE?

Compensation claims can be made in a number of different situations, but if you have been the victim in this case you could consider claiming in the following circumstances:

  • Claims for an error during pregnancy
  • Claims for errors made during the delivery process
  • Claims for errors made during a caeserian
  • Claims for failure to identify a potential issue during birth
  • Claims for failure to administer the appropriate drugs

WHO COULD HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR INJURIES OF THIS TYPE?

In the delivery room there are a number of people who could be responsible for your injuries, depending on the circumstances in which they took place. If you feel that an error has  been made during the delivery then you could look to claim against the doctor or midwife who may have been responsible for a safe delivery. You could also claim against any hospital staff who you believe have been negligent towards you.
