When a child is born, it should be a happy and exciting event. However complications can occur before, during or after birth, which if not managed correctly can have devastating consequences.
We are committed to supporting families who have been affected by medical negligence and have particular expertise in providing specialist support to families of seriously injured children.
Our Client Promise
We understand that these events can often be traumatic. Our specialist Medical Negligence Solicitors will do all they can to help you get the support you and your child need. All of our initial consultation work is free and the vast majority of claims go on to be funded by a conditional fee agreement (also known as “no win, no fee”) or by Legal Aid.
Where possible we will seek to obtain interim compensation payments, which may be used to provide financial support for your family or pay for continuing care or treatment. We work hard to ensure any financial hardship on your family is reduced, your child receives the highest standards of care going forwards and that any final compensation is maximised.
We have many years’ experience in supporting families in this regard and can provide access to specialist consultants, charities and other medical practitioners to ensure you and your child receive the best support possible.

- Erb’s Palsy/shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Scarring (e.g. during caesarean section)
- Learning difficulties and developmental delay
- Failure to detect birth defects
