When professionals fail to do this, the repercussions can be serious, placing a major emotional and financial burden on parents.
The birth itself is never easy and sometimes it can be traumatic for mothers and babies. During this difficult time, parents should expect to be able to give their full attention to the process, confident that the expertise and professionalism of the maternity team is beyond question. When things do go wrong, it can feel like a serious betrayal of that trust, and more importantly the wrong course of action can have stark consequences.
First4SeriousInjury has wide experience in getting the right support and appropriate compensation that will help limit those consequences. Our team of professionals can give detailed guidance on the best ways to approach a range of situations whether incorrect diagnosis of conditions such as cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy, or even jaundice, which left untreated can result in kernicterus. During birth babies can suffer Meconium Aspiration Syndrome, where a mixture of amniotic fluid and potentially infectious matter can get into their lungs. If incorrectly identified or treated the situation can be fatal, or have long term impacts.

What could your claim be worth?
There is no definite answer as to how much compensation you may be entitled to following a pregnancy and birth injury claim. Each case is different and has its own set of unique circumstances, so it is near impossible to pinpoint an exact figure. First4SeriousInjury has wide experience in getting the right support and determining the appropriate compensation you and your family deserve.
Why you should claim
At First4SeriousInjury we understand what parents go through when their child has been misdiagnosed, or poorly treated. Our first priority is to give you the support that you need to help you take care of your first priority – your child. Our team of experts understands how parents can feel let down, sometimes baffled by medical conditions such as necrotising enterocolitis, that until now were obscure worst-case scenarios. One of the first things that we will do is help you understand what’s happened, and importantly establish why it happened. Once a responsible party has been identified we can help you win the compensation that you deserve.
Nothing will ever make up for the death of a child, or a life in the shadow of an ongoing condition that might have been avoided. But getting the support that you need and claiming the compensation that you’re entitled to by calling on our team of experts at First4SeriousInjury will help ease the burden.
