Unfortunately, as with most types of surgery or medical procedure, there is a risk of complications or injury as a result of negligence during pregnancy. Any such complications or medical negligence either during the pregnancy or at the time of birth may lead to consequences that change the lives of all those involved; not only the parents but also family or other people connected with the baby. In such cases, it is possible that compensation may be payable as a result of the injury suffered, and Bristol personal injury claims solicitors** can help make sure that the maximum amount of compensation is achieved.

Medical Negligence During Birth

Some examples of birth injury claims include errors made during the pregnancy such as misdiagnosis during scans and other tests and mistakes made during the birth such as negligent use of medical instruments, incorrect dosages of anaesthetic or other medicine, lack of oxygen given or poor aftercare. Common injuries resulting from these examples include both injuries to the mother and the child. For the mother, potential injuries include gynaecological damage and emotional trauma, and for the baby possible injuries include brain damage, fractures, paralysis and scarring. It is important to note that this list is non-exhaustive and there are a number of different injuries that may arise and result in a birth injury claim, ranging from minor injuries to those that are more serious and require more treatment.

Birth Injury Compensation

The amount of compensation that may be awarded will be dependent on a number of contributing factors. In order to determine how much compensation may be awarded from a birth injury claim, Bristol birth injury claim solicitors** will need further information about how the injury was caused and what short and long term losses have been suffered. These losses may include loss of salary (if relevant), loss of future earnings, medical costs and other costs of rehabilitation. In this regard, it is important to keep any medical documents relating to the injury and treatment received, as well as any receipts for costs that have already been incurred.
