Birth Injury Claims
A birth injury describes any type of harm that the baby or mother suffers during, before, or shortly after delivery.
There will be a big difference between an injury and a defect so that is one of the first roles of a solicitor to figure out. A defect can happen during the pregnancy cycle and an injury can result from medical negligence* or malpractice by a third party health professional.
If you think that you have suffered from negligence or malpractice from a birth injury, then you need to seek legal advice from medical negligence specialists and speak to our team at Tallans Solicitors today.
These cases are complex and require expert advice. There are many steps involved in a medical negligence case.
While there are many steps, it shouldn’t deter you if you think that you have suffered from negligence due to an injury during birth.
Medical negligence is typically used to describe situations where a patient suffers personal injury* as a result of an error made by a medical or clinical person. When we talk about medical negligence, it applies to all medical professionals such as; doctors, nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, surgeons, consultants, opticians and more recently, plastic surgery.
Medical negligence can occur in both the private and public health system.
