Medical Negligence

Birth, Pregnancy and Gynaecology Claims

Surely, if something doesn’t go to plan during my pregnancy or child’s birth I can bring a claim?

Unfortunately not. Pregnancy and labour is the same as every medical procedure – things don’t always go to plan. But that doesn’t automatically mean you have a claim for compensation. Sometimes though, the treatment a person receives is way below the accepted standard.

This is why it is important to seek legal advice from one of our team straight away. We have had years of experience dealing with birth, pregnancy and gynaecology claims. We can advise you fully and guide you through the claim process if we believe you have reasonable prospects of bringing a successful medical negligence claim.

A legal claim can be brought against anyone that has treated you, and must be brought to court within three years (in rare cases you can exceed this) of the date you first knew, or could reasonably have been expected to know, that you had suffered a significant injury caused by someone else’s negligent acts or omissions. In the case of a child the three years runs from their 18th birthday.
