Birth Injury & Pregnancy Claims
Applebys all female team
If you’ve had a problem with any stage of your pregnancy, labour, delivery or aftercare, then let our specialist, all female team help you. The trauma of a birth injury, whether to mother, child or both, can have life-long emotional and physical implications. We cannot take away the wrong you have suffered, but our specialist Solicitors will fight for the maximum compensation your situation deserves.
Hospital Birth Units are areas of high stress and pressing medical need. They demand, in their clinicians, the sort of personality that can cope with trauma and decision making under extreme pressure. Occasionally, the management of delivery can be fraught and the outcomes poor for mother and child, however, this doesn't meant necessarily that the outcome is negligent. Knowing the difference between sub optimal treatment and negligent treatment is a skill that is only possessed by the experienced. Appleby's have years of experience in bringing about settlements in birth related injuries and our expertise is only matched by our desire to see an appropriate outcome for the family. The strength of the links that many families form with their solicitors can be demonstrated by the fact that many clients are still in touch with us, years after settlement, to update us with news about their family and their children.
