Birth Injury Claims

We've got your pregnancy and birth claim covered

Pregnancy and birth

Giving birth can be and should be the most amazing day of your life. To help ensure that both the child and mother remain healthy, a series of antenatal tests should be carried out at the appropriate times. The birth itself should always be overseen and conducted properly by the right professionals. You are placing your trust in their hands.

If the correct care isn’t given then it can be very traumatising. In some cases, this can lead to a lifetime of health problems for the child, who may require around the clock care.

How can we help?

If you or your baby has suffered as a result of either poor care during pregnancy or errors made during the birth, then Patient Claim Line is here to help. Chances are the hospital may not have admitted something went wrong, or you have been told that its ‘just one of those things’, or that its ‘a normal risk of birth’, when in reality it may have been the hospital’s negligence that has left you in this situation. Your child may require extensive care and you and your family or friends may be left to provide that care. You may need equipment or treatment that will help your child, but that may be expensive, especially if as is often the case, you or your partner has had to give up work.

With all this going on, looking into making a claim may be the last thing on your mind, but making a compensation claim with the right team behind you can help with all of this and help make life a lot easier.

Patient Claim Line has access to one of the leading medical negligence teams in the UK and will be able to tell you very quickly whether they think you have a case. They have a specialist team that deal with birth injury cases. They have the knowledge and experience to fully investigate your case and if negligence has occurred, they will ensure that as well as compensation, the cost of private care, care from friends and family, specialist equipment, rehabilitation needs and any loss of earnings are included within your claim.

What are some common antenatal injury claims?

When it comes to making antenatal injury claims there are a range of injuries that you could make a claim for, some of the most common include:

  • Injuries to the mother during birth
  • Injuries to the child during birth (e.g. cerebral palsy)
  • Misdiagnosis of pre–existing conditions
  • Lack of appropriate screening
  • Injuries received after birth as the result of negligence

How can I make a claim?

If you believe an error or mistake has been made at any point during your pregnancy or during the birth, then you may be entitled to pursue a claim. However, it is often very difficult to know whether an error has been made and trying to find out on your own can be an added stress at what is already a very stressful time. You need a specialist team to find out for you, and then to make sure you are fully and properly compensated.

Patient Claim Line is here to advise you on this.

The best thing to do is get in touch with us and we will be able to advise you very quickly whether or not there is a claim. It costs you nothing to find out if you have a case, and all our claims are dealt with by specialist Medical Lawyers, on a strictly no win no fee basis.
