Childbirth Injuries To Mother

We've got your pregnancy claim for injuries to mother covered

When giving birth, the main concerns are usually with the welfare of the newborn baby. However, if something goes wrong during the birth it is not only the baby’s life that may be at risk but also that of the mother. It is important that you are in the hands of a fully trained professional and if for any reason there are problems with the delivery that could have been prevented, or you were left with injuries as a result of medical negligence you may be eligible to make a compensation claim.

You may be able to claim in the event of injuries received through birth:

  • Episiotomy
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Unnecessary scarring and damage from a Caesarean section
  • Hospital acquired infections
  • Vaginal fissures and tears


Injuries to mother compensation

From time to time, preventable injuries occur to both mother and baby during childbirth. When this happens as a result of negligence, and your long-term health or your child’s long-term health is affected, you may be entitled to compensation.

At Patient Claim Line, we are legal experts and take injuries during childbirth very seriously. Our expert team can help you to understand if you have the right to pursue a claim.


Episiotomy injury

During the birth of a child, medical professionals may make the decision to cut between the mother’s vagina and perineum to allow the baby to exit more easily. Unfortunately, episiotomies can lead to further infection and physical injury. When that decision has been made negligently, or the procedure itself results in an error, you are entitled to seek legal advice.



Pre-eclampsia often happens during the second half of a pregnancy, or immediately after a baby is born. Although cases can be symptomless, the condition can result in complications for both the mother and baby. Negligent treatment, delayed diagnosis or a failure to diagnose altogether can mean that you are entitled to compensation.


Caesarean section injuries

If you are a victim of avoidable scarring and damage from a Caesarean section, you could be entitled to compensation. A caesarean section, or c-section, is generally considered as a very safe procedure. However, there can be risks and complications when the treatment is not carried out to an acceptable standard.

At Patient Claim Line we are leading experts in the field of medical negligence and have extensive experience in dealing with a wide variety of claims. We offer a personal and professional approach and are 100% committed to achieving the best outcome we can for you.
