Claiming compensation for NHS negligence at birth

The birth of a baby should be a joyful event as a new individual is welcomed into the family. However there are rare cases where something goes wrong that can have a profound effect on the rest of that individual’s life, and also on the lives of the parents and family members involved.

While such events are rare, thanks to the exceptional care offered today throughout the NHS, most people realise there are potential situations where things can potentially happen that could have a detrimental outcome. In cases where NHS negligence at birth does take place, it can have far-reaching consequences.

Negligence can take many forms. For example it could mean something is forgotten that should be done without question, or perhaps there may be a delay in treatment. In other cases there is a potential for a medical condition not to be noticed that could have been rectified in some way if it was seen straight away. Thankfully cases such as these are indeed rare, so few parents have to go through situations like this when they give birth to their child. Even one case is one too many however, especially for those directly affected.

How might a situation like this affect the lives of those involved?

If a baby is injured during birth or a problem is potentially not noticed, it can lead to lifelong medical problems for that individual. In other cases as mentioned above, a delay in treating a baby with a particular problem can mean they are left with more severe conditions to deal with than may have been the case otherwise. It is only right for people to seek professional advice if they believe this could be the case in their situation when their baby was born.
