Birth Injury Compensation Claims Solicitors

Birth Injury Compensation Claims Solicitors

Bringing a new baby into the world can be one of the happiest moments in any parents’ lives. But if things go wrong, the consequences can be devastating – especially if it causes injuries to the baby, the mother, or in the worst cases to both. Problems can sometimes arise naturally during pregnancy, in labour, of after the baby is born. However, sometimes they’re caused by medical negligence; specifically through a failure to provide adequate or appropriate care.

With more than 60 years of experience here at Farleys, our medical negligence solicitors understand exactly how traumatic these situations can be, and the mental and emotional toll they can take both in the immediate aftermath, and many years into the future. We’re committed to supporting you and your family as best we can, fully committing ourselves to bring you a legal resolution that gives you the best chance of closure.

Birth Injury Compensation Claims FAQ's

Who can make a birth injury claim?

You can claim compensation for any birth injury that’s been incurred as the result of medical negligence. That means if you or your baby has suffered injury due to mistakes made by doctors or other medical staff before, during, or giving birth, you may be entitled to make a claim.

How long do you have to make a claim?

You can make a claim on behalf of your child at any time before their 18th birthday. On the day of their 18th birthday, they then have three years to submit a claim on their own behalf, which effectively gives them until the day of their 21st birthday.

If you are claiming for a child who has passed away as a result of a birth injury due to medical negligence, you have three years to make a claim, starting from the date of their passing.

How much does it cost to make a birth injury claim?

We always try and take birth injury cases on a no-win, no-fee basis. That means you’ll only pay legal costs if your claim is successful, and most of these costs will be covered by the defendant. If your claim is not successful, on the other hand, then you won’t have to pay anything.

How much can I claim for a birth injury?

The exact amount of compensation is dependent on a number of factors, but is often in the thousands of pounds. For the most severe injuries, it can even be as high as hundreds of thousands of pounds.

However, relatively few compensation figures get as far as six figures. The exact amount of compensation you can expect to receive depends on the nature of the injury incurred, and the extent of the impact it’s had on your daily life.
