Birth Injury Claims

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.

Funding Your Birth Injury Claim

1stClaims does not charge you for using our service and all initial enquiries with our Solicitors are also free of charge, so rest assured, this initial step of making an enquiry will not cost you anything.

Once one of our Solicitors has assessed the merits of your enquiry they will make a judgement on the likely chances of bringing a successful claim and if the prospects are good, they will normally offer to take your case on a No Win No Fee basis. NOTE: If your case is successful your Solicitor will deduct up to a maximum of 25% of your final settlement or compensation award as payment for their fees. You can find out more about No Win No Fee arrangements and the potential costs that can be incurred by clicking here.

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.
