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 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. For our specialist management of your compensation, one call to our experienced team is all it takes to get the process under way.
