What Our Clients Say

How JMW Can Help

We provide legal advice and representation to mothers who have suffered an injury as a result of a mistake by a medical professional before, during or after birth. We are highly experienced in claims against the NHS and private healthcare providers on behalf of clients who have suffered due to medical negligence.

Examples of maternal injuries and procedures that may cause problems for the mother during birth include:

  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Infections                       
  • Haemorrhages
  • Caesareans

Making a Maternal Birth Injury Claim

All expectant mothers are entitled to proper antenatal care, and the medical professionals charged with your care should be alert to signs that could lead to a birth injury. Sadly, not all midwives, doctors and nurses spot these signs resulting in what can be a serious injury to the mother during childbirth.

If you have suffered during childbirth due to an injury that could have been avoided, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. The amount you receive in your claim will depend on the circumstances of your case, but typically we can secure compensation related to the following:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Ongoing treatment, therapy or surgery
  • Additional care requirements
  • Loss of earnings
  • Any specialist equipment requirements

There is no set time limit on how long a compensation claim will take, but we will always aim to get an early admission of negligence from the defendant and keep your case out of the courts.
