Birth Injury Claims

We Can Provide You With Specialist Advice At No Cost And With No Obligation.

Birth injury cases are extremely complex in terms of both the legal complications involved but also because of the very stressful and emotional experience that parents and family go through. An injury can occur to the mother or the baby either before, during or shortly after birth. Injury can result from many different circumstances but common complaints are of third and fourth degree tears, skin irritation, fractured bones, brain injury and nerve damage.

Your 1stClaims solicitor will have experience in dealing with all of these types of birth injury claims to ensure that at a time of stress you are handled promptly and professionally.

Funding Your Birth Injury Claim

If legal aid is not available, we can offer you a No Win No Fee Medical Negligence Claim, whereby you do not have to pay to start your claim and you pay nothing if you lose. This is a special arrangement for 1stClaims clients and is not one that is commonly offered by Birth Injury claim solicitors. It is just another way we help to make the whole process as simple as possible for you.

If the claim is to be made on behalf of your child, then most children will automatically qualify for legal aid as it is their own income that is assessed and not their parents or families. 1stClaims solicitors are authorised by the Legal Services Commission to undertaken claims on a legally aided basis and will discuss this with you. Your solicitor will have many years experience in dealing with birth injury claims and will be sympathetic to what is clearly a very difficult time for you and your family. They will and guide you through the legal procedure, make an application for legal aid on your behalf and try to make the situation as stress free as possible for you.

How Long Do I Have to Instruct a Solicitor?

If the Birth Injury claim is for the mother, you have three years from the date of the injury within which to make a claim. However, you need to contact one of our solicitors urgently to ensure you have the best prospects of success. Where the medical negligence involves a child, you have three years from the date of the child's 18th birthday to bring a claim. Therefore, even if the treatment was carried out many years ago, if your child is under 21 year of age they will still be able to bring a claim. Generally however, a claim has a higher chance of success if action is taken as soon after the event as possible.
