Having a child is the most important milestone in your life, and if there’s an injury, accident, or negligent care during birth or the pregnancy it can be devastating and result in lifelong repercussions for the mother, the child, and the family. If your family has suffered birth negligence or injury, you may have cause to raise a birth injury claim.

A birth injury is an injury suffered by the mother or their baby during childbirth. Birth negligence can mean things such as mistakes made during routine procedures and monitoring failures during pregnancy, some of which can have a significant impact on the unborn child. You may be entitled to birth injury compensation and follow up care..
