What we do
Help with Birth Injuries

Birth Injuries Solicitors here to help you as a result of the negligence of a medical professional.

Expecting a baby can be an exciting and difficult time for many new parents, which can be worsened when things go wrong during labour. In some cases, this can result in a child suffering injuries, long-term health complaints and disabilities as a result of the negligence of a medical professional.

New parents will naturally put their trust in the doctors and midwives present at their birth. However, if their actions are negligent or they allow their duty of care to slip, it can result in birth injuries. We appreciate that this can make an already difficult experience even more distressing and can, sometimes, have life changing consequences for both the parents and their child.

No matter whether something was overlooked, a procedure wasn’t completed properly, or the advice of other medical professionals in the room was ignored, any resulting birth injuries could result in a potential compensation claim. Compensation is awarded to ensure that any long-lasting effects of the injury can be supported and rehabilitated throughout the child’s lifetime.

How long will it take to reach a settlement?

Types of birth injury

Types of birth injury include (but aren’t limited to):

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Other complications due to lack of oxygen at birth
  • Scarring or Bruising
  • Injuries from forceps/ventouse delivery
  • Erb’s Palsy or Erb-duchenne palsy, also known as brachial plexus palsy
  • Broken bones
  • Infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Complications causing or leading from Stillbirth

Parents have the right to claim for compensation up until their child’s 21st birthday and in exceptional cases even longer.  In more tragic cases up until 3 years after their child’s death as a result of birth injuries.

Jarmans Solicitors sympathetically work with parents and their injured children to ensure that they receive the compensation and treatment that they deserve. In some cases, children may be in long-term treatment or may still be in hospital and parents may not fully realise the long-term effects and implications of their child’s birth injuries. Our team work alongside them to compile a case that fully reflects the scale and potential trauma of the family’s experiences.
