Birth Injury Claims

Secure the best care and improve your family’s quality of life with a birth injury compensation claim that could deliver the support and financial security you need.

If you or your child suffered a birth injury, we can offer support – get in touch or call 0191 5666 500 for an informal discussion.

When a mother or baby is injured during childbirth, the effects can have a long-lasting impact on daily life. With the support of our experienced Birth Injury Solicitors, your family can access help and compensation to make living a little bit easier.

The number of UK childbirth injury claims is dropping year on year, but we believe one case of substandard care is one too many. If your world has been turned upside down by negligent care, we can provide support and refer you to specialist charities, medical experts and support groups to help navigate the physical, emotional and financial challenges you may face.

Pursuing a legal case to secure birth injury compensation could allow you to cover ongoing rehabilitation and care costs. In the most serious cases, where children may require life-long assistance, a settlement could replace lost income and pay for other long-term expenses. Wherever possible, we will always seek an interim payment to support you until your claim is finalised.

To arrange a free consultation with our Birth Injury Solicitors, please get in touch or call 0191 5666500 today. There is no obligation to start a claim and any information will be treated in the strictest confidence.

No Win, No Fee Birth Injury Claims Explained

What is a no win, no fee birth injury claim?

To provide affordable access to justice, many of the medical and clinical negligence cases we handle are funded by a ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement.

Also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA, this ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement means you won’t have to pay a penny if you lose your case. So, you don’t have to weigh up whether a Birth Injury Claim is a risk worth taking.

If you win, your opponent will usually need to cover most of your legal costs, though you will need to pay a success fee from the compensation.

If your case is not successful, you won’t pay a penny. In effect, it means we share the risk with you, as we only get paid if you win.

This isn’t the only way to fund a case and all other methods will be explained before you decide whether to pursue a claim.

Comprehensive cover for rehabilitation & care costs

If your child suffers from serious and ongoing complications, our birth injury solicitors will aim to secure enough compensation to make daily life easier for you and your family.

Birth Injury Compensation can be used to pay for real and practical changes.

  • Professional care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Home adaptations
  • Equipment & aids
  • Medication

We can connect you with medical practitioners, support specialists and rehabilitation coordinators so they can produce a long-term care plan.

To support your child and ensure their future is financially secure, we will also aim to agree a compensation package that will allow them to be cared for in later life.
