Childbirth Medical Negligence Claims

Whilst the majority of births take place without injury, obstetric care sometimes falls below acceptable standards which can have devastating effects on the mother and child. Whether you have suffered an injury during your pregnancy as a result of delayed or misdiagnosis, or a problem during birth that has resulted in injury to yourself or your child you may need to consider an obstetric negligence claim.

Types of obstetric negligence

Obstetric negligence can occur due to a number of reasons including:

  • Pregnancy negligence
  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Incorrect monitoring
  • Maternal injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Neonatal death
