Cerebral Palsy Birth Injuries
One of the more common claims that a Southampton birth injury lawyer will be required to support with is brain damage to the baby during birth. This can lead to a diagnosis of cerebral palsy.
Having a child with brain injury is extremely demanding and challenging, and you will need the right professional care and support. With effective legal representation during a birth injury claim, you can help to ensure you have the financial means in which to do this.
Our personal injury solicitors fight tooth and nail to ensure that our clients receive the very best and highest possible birth injury compensation payouts so they can transform the life of their child.
Birth Injury Solicitors – How We Work
We will always be understanding, compassionate, and professional. Our birth injury solicitors treat each case with the utmost care and respect and will always listen to you and your concerns or requests.
When processing a birth injury claim our team will look into the following scenarios. These questions will help us to achieve the best possible outcome for your Southampton birth injury claim.
- Were there problems on the cardiotocograph (CTG), your baby’s heart monitor?
- Was your labour or delivery long or poorly progressed?
- Was the possibility of fetal distress mentioned by the obstetric doctors or midwives?
- Was there any delay in the attendance of the obstetric doctors?
- Was there any delay in having an emergency caesarean section?
- Did your baby require resuscitation immediately after delivery?
- Did your baby convulse or fit shortly after delivery?
With cerebral palsy claims, our solicitors will look deeply into the events before and after the event to make sure that no stone is left uncovered. In most cases we will find instances of medical and clinical negligence that led to failures during birth that can help us claim your compensation. Cerebral palsy birth injury claims are amongst the most common in this field.
