Hudgells tells MPs a public inquiry into birth injuries is crucial

‘Surge’ in client cases

In a submission to a Westminster inquiry into the reasons behind an increasing number of birth trauma incidents across England, Hudgell Solicitors has told MPs the number of potential clients who believe their NHS maternity care was substandard continues to increase.

“The number of inquiries we received during 2020 / 2021 increased dramatically,” said Maria Repanos, head of clinical negligence at the firm’s Manchester office.

“This sharp rise in inquiries has also, in turn, led to a surge in birth trauma cases that we have successfully settled during that period,” she added.

A Public Inquiry is imperative

I do apologise for bad review. As the review supposed to be assigned to different firm, from IE. Of course your firm had not been involved in any of my case. One more time my deepest apologies
