Birth Injury Claims

The NHS complaints procedure will not offer compensation if someone has suffered a serious injury during pregnancy or childbirth. However, you can make a personal injury claim through Claim 500.

Serious birth injuries can have financial as well as physical implications, like loss of earnings and the cost of rehabilitation. Claim 500 can get the process started, from giving you practical, free advice, to taking over the management of your case.

Birth injury claims are also known as medical negligence or poor hospital care claims. They are made when mother or baby has been injured because of a medical practitioner’s mistake. The injury can happen during pregnancy, delivery or in the weeks after.

We will make the claim process as quick and as simple as possible, helping you to compile paperwork, chasing reports and ensuring you meet the legal requirements. Our approach takes the pressure off you at a time when you certainly don’t need any more.

We can help to arrange interim payments for you while your case is processed.

Throughout your compensation process, your dedicated claims handler will keep you updated on its progress. Our specialist management of your compensation is free, and we guarantee that you will receive 100% of any award you receive. One call to our experienced team is all it takes to get the process under way.

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial palsy (Erb's Palsy)
  • Broken bones

Why Make A Birth Injury Claim Through Claim 500?

We make it easier: we manage your personal injury claim from start to finish, acting as an essential link between you, the medical insurers, the hospital and the courts in a non-intrusive way.

As the claimant you do not have to pay for Claim 500’s services, whether you are awarded compensation or not. If your no win, no fee claim is unsuccessful, you do not pay us a penny, and if you are granted compensation the other party must pay for our services on your behalf.
