Your baby and your health are important. Expecting a little one can be an exciting and anxious time, especially when it’s your first. There are many unknowns and you put your trust in doctors, midwives and nurses to care for you and your unborn baby.
If you do not get the care you should, or if a specialist fails to diagnose a condition which results in trauma, injury or illness to you or your baby then you are entitled to make a claim.
Nobody wants to claim against a hospital or a medical professional. But where there is medical negligence, compensation will ease any financial burden you suffer as a result of your injuries.
Do I Have A Claim?
Medical negligence cases can be complicated and often revolve around the small details of the case. Deciding whether or not you have a case to present and your options will all be discussed with you before we act on your behalf.
Any kind of legal action can be stressful but even more so when it involves pregnancy and birthing issues. Our team will ensure you are treated with sensitivity and sympathy as we work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
Will It Affect My Care?
The simple answer: No.
Most claims occur after you and your baby have left hospital but in some cases you may still be undergoing treatment. You can still claim compensation in this situation but there are wider considerations if this is the case.
Yes, you can change your doctor or hospital in mid-treatment. But if you do decide to stay at the same hospital, it is likely that you will be seen by a different consultant and team.
These are respected professionals so you they should not treat you any less well because you’re taking legal action against their colleague – if anything you’re likely to be treated better as they attempt to fix the original mistake.
