Birth Injuries Claims

Birth Injury Compensation Claims Solicitors

Bringing a new baby into the world should be an exciting and happy time. However, unfortunately for some new mums and dads, things can go horribly wrong, causing injuries to their new baby, to mum or in the worst cases, to both.

The after-effects of a birth gone wrong can be devastating, and may continue many years into the future. Problems can arise naturally during pregnancy, in labour or after the baby is born, but sometimes they are caused by negligence; through a failure to provide adequate or appropriate care.

Making a Birth Injury Claim

Whether you have been treated within the private sector or the NHS, Farleys can help you to claim compensation for the pain, suffering and any financial loss you have incurred as a result.

Farleys will do everything possible to bring your medical negligence claim on a ‘no win no fee’ basis; which means you will keep 100% of the compensation you are awarded.

We understand that pursuing a claim relating to birth can be extremely upsetting and our expert solicitors will guide you every step of the way; helping you to secure the compensation you deserve.

If you, or somebody close to you has been injured during pregnancy or labour, or following labour, and would like to speak to an expert solicitor about the possibility of bringing a claim, please call us today on 0333 331 4602 or email us. We will advise you in the first instance free of charge, and help you to decide whether pursuing a claim is the right course of action for you.
