If You Need To Make A Claim

This information is useful when processing your birth injury claim so we can deal with it as quickly as possible on your behalf.

  • Note down the facts of the event that caused your birth injury – was it negligence? Who was to blame?
  • Keep medical bills, travel receipts and any other cost receipts to show expenses.
  • Did the birth injury take place in the last three years? Note that personal injury claims can usually only be made for up to three years after the event; however in the case of birth injuries, where infant diagnosis can take time, this period can be extended. As us for more information.
  • Contact us – call or fill in the simple online form and we can give you a call back to discuss your claim in more detail.
  • We can help to arrange interim payments for you while your case is processed.

If you believe that the injuries sustained by yourself, your child or a loved one may have been preventable or a result of medical negligence you may be able to claim compensation. Contact Claim 500 to discuss your options with one of our personal injury specialists.
