Statistics show that approximately 27 of every 1000 births results in a birth injury. Complications in the process of pregnancy, labour and delivery can result in a wide variety of difficulties for a newborn baby. Birth injuries vary a great deal, from being very minor, to the most severe causing the death of the child.
Unfortunately there are many natural circumstances where injury can occur, but there are also many circumstances where injuries are caused by negligence on the part of doctors, hospitals or other medical professionals during the delivery process. For example a delay in performing a necessary C-section delivery, complication with a VBAC (vaginal birth after C-Section) delivery, use of excessive force during the delivery, or a miscalculation in the size of the baby, causing a traumatic delivery.
An experienced birth injury solicitor should be consulted immediately if your baby has suffered a birth injury and you suspect medical negligence. Unfortunately, doctors and hospitals will almost never admit fault. Appropriate discovery is essential to knowing whether you have a birth injury compensation case.
Proving physical, emotional, or cognitive damage for birth injury claims can be difficult, you need to ensure you receive the best advice about how to make your claim, otherwise you may not receive what you are entitled to. In many cases, people who make a birth injury claim, settle for an amount that does not truly compensate them for the suffering they experience.
