Birth Injury Compensation Claims Bolton
Pregnancy and childbirth represent exciting times for the families concerned, but the arrival of a new baby requires a journey that can be daunting, so it’s crucial that mother and baby are well-looked after in the run-up to birth. From time to time there are complications that arise both during the pregnancy and at the time of birth. Such complications can result in a birth injury, and unfortunately may lead to both short and long-term complications.
If you have been injured during pregnancy or your child was injured during birth, it may be possible that they can claim birth injury compensation. If this is the case, contact our personal injury specialists to discuss the specifics of their situation.
Injuries Suffered at Birth — Making a Claim for Compensation
Although it is impossible to list all possible injuries that may occur at birth, examples include Cerebral Palsy and multiple sclerosis to the child or perhaps nerve or tissue damage to the mother. Irrespective of the actual injury, and whether it has been suffered by the mother or child, if another party has been negligent and contributed to the injury it is likely that there will be compensation available.
It could be because of the negligence of a general practitioner, one of the midwives, a nurse, or even an anaesthetist. Regardless, our clinical negligence solicitors ** will be able to explain exactly what duty of care they have towards you and then assess whether there has been a breach. In other situations, the wrong diagnosis may have been made, or the incorrect treatment may have been given.
Will My Claim for Birth Injury Compensation Be Successful?
As a birth injury expert will be able to explain to you, if it is clear that the injury suffered could have been avoided, it is likely that a compensation claim will be successful. The amount of compensation that will be awarded will be relative to the case. Therefore, it is not possible to give an accurate estimate without further details.
In order to get an estimate of how much compensation may be awarded for your birth injury, it is important to seek guidance from a Bolton solicitor. You’ll need to provide them with more detail about the injuries suffered and how those injuries came about. Then, you will be able to get an accurate estimate of your compensation package, and whether your claim has merit.
