Mid Sussex Accident Claim Solicitors
From the day they find out they’re expecting a baby, everything a couple or an individual does is leading up to the day they can hold their baby in their arms. Whilst no woman actively looks forward to the pain of labour, it is made bearable by the reward at the end.
Nobody likes to think of this wonderful experience going wrong but in the event that you or your baby suffered injuries as the result of poor quality care during a birth then you have the right to contact Mid Sussex Accident Claim Solicitors.
When Things Go Wrong
Medical negligence is the term given when the action or lack of action by a medical professional causes harm to their patient. In the case of giving birth, the labouring mother may be seen by midwives, doctors, paediatricians, nurses and health care assistants. If the action or inaction of any of these professionals causes harm then Mid Sussex Accident Claim Solicitors can be contacted to seek compensation.
What sets midwives as being different compared to other nursing staff is that they have two patients. Both the mother and the child are their responsibility and as part of that responsibility they have to manage the health of both. This is a difficult job and in many cases, things can go wrong. However, the difference between a poor birthing experience and a catastrophic one is the action of the midwife and any other staff.
Babies and mothers can become distressed during labour, the labour could be overly long and intervention required or the baby could become stuck. In many cases, the professionalism of the care staff is effortless and the situation remedied but in other cases, the mother and the baby may come to harm.
Nobody likes to think about what might happen but from short term damage to the mother such as tearing or bleeding or long term damage to the baby due to lack of oxygen or distress, things can go wrong quickly.
In the event of negligent care during labour and birth, you may find yourself suffering psychological trauma as well as dealing with the physical symptoms to you and your baby. If this is the case, Mid Sussex Accident Claim Solicitors can seek out compensation on your behalf.
