Birth Injury Claims

Injuries that arise during labour and delivery can be devastating for the whole family.  You may be entitled to claim compensation if you or your child has been left with physical or psychological trauma.

Birth injuries to mothers

Maternal injury during childbirth can happen due to the natural cause of events; however it is important that precautions are taken to identify and reduce the risk of injury during labour and the delivery of your baby.
