    Compensation Claim in Shrewsbury


    Birth Injuries and Compensation Claims

    The birth of your new baby should be one of the most special times in your life, with memories you can treasure forever. We are all aware that accidents can happen during labour but if anything happens to the baby through medical negligence, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Shrewsbury. You put your trust into the medics when they are delivering your baby and you expect them to get you and the baby through it without complications. If this doesn’t happen and the surgeon is at fault, it is known as medical negligence and it can cause you to make a compensation claim in Shrewsbury.

    Type of Claim

    There are various types of compensation claims you may wish to make regarding birth injuries which will depend on the type of injury sustained and the future implications of this for you or your baby in the future. These types of medical errors can cause a lot of distress and heartache and can have lasting psychological effects for both the parents and the baby. It is therefore important that you give yourself peace of mind by making a claim and potentially prevent it from happening to someone else in the future.

    Evidence

    In order to make a compensation claim in Shrewsbury for medical negligence, you will be required to have adequate evidence to back up your claim. It may be in the form of medical records, photographs or through witnesses and this is an essential part of the claim process. The more evidence and information you have, the higher your chance of a successful outcome to your claim. It is very difficult for a claim to be brought to a positive conclusion without the use of evidence.

    Compensation Value

    The value of the compensation will greatly depend on the type of injuries sustained by the baby and/or mother and the implications these may have for the future. The value of a compensation claim in Shrewsbury will also consist of any medical bills which have resulted from the surgical error and any future need for the family to pay for medical equipment etc. If you have been left out of pocket, it is important to keep hold of any receipts, as this will contribute towards the value of your compensation claim in Shrewsbury.

    Process

    If you decide to go ahead with your claim, the process will involve speaking to Accident Advice Helpline, who will put you in touch with their in-house solicitors. You will provide them with the details of your claim and any evidence you have to substantiate your claims and they will deal with the process for you.
