About Birth Injury Compensation

The birth of a new baby is very special time for a family and especially the parents of the baby. If things go wrong during their pregnancy or at the birth the effects can be devastating. If a mother or baby’s harm is due to medical negligence a claim for personal injury compensation may be possible.

Thankfully the vast majority of pregnancy and births happen without any problems at all. However when something goes wrong it can be very serious. Birth injury means any injury suffered by a mother or her baby. These can be as follows –

During pregnancy:
