Birth Injury Claims – Helping you with Birth Injury Negligence


A birth injury is an injury to a foetus or baby that happened during pregnancy, labour, delivery or the postpartum period. Birth injuries can be preventable and can be caused by medical negligence (unlike birth defects).

Raising a child with a birth injury can be physically, emotionally and financially overwhelming.

At Brindley Twist Tafft & James, our medical negligence solicitors act for families with children who suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a doctor, midwife or other medical professional.  No amount of money can compensate for your losses.  We will however help you claim for the damages that you and your child have suffered  and seek a full financial settlement as this can help ease the financial burden of raising a child with a birth injury.

Our specialist team of solicitors are highly experienced and successful in medical compensation claims involving birth injuries.  Many of our cases involve:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Still birth
  • Birth trauma
  • Poor delivery technique
  • Ventouse or forceps injuries
  • Negligent management of high-risk births
  • Failure to perform a timely Caesarean section

We understand how distressing it may be and we always handle all cases with the utmost understanding, sensitivity and compassion.

If you have been affected by a birth injury then please get in touch with our team to find out how we can help you.
