Cerebral Palsy and Other Birth Injury Claims

We are lucky in the UK that the high standard of midwifery and obstetrics medicine mean that the majority of births and pregnancies take place without complications.

However, sometimes things do go wrong. If you are failed by a medical team tasked with your care, we can advise you on whether you can make a claim for birth injury compensation via your union legal scheme.

Our team of dedicated, empathetic lawyers has significant expertise in birth injury compensation claims for families who have experienced problematic births or issues during pregnancy.

We understand the significant impact a serious birth injury – be that to a mother or a child - has on a family. Supporting our clients through what is often a traumatic experience is our number one priority.

We know that financial compensation is only part of the picture and so work closely with specialists and medical experts to provide wrap-around support for our clients.

Thompsons has specialists who deal with cerebral palsy, preeclampsia and maternal or gestational diabetes and other birth injury claims arising from medical negligence.

“We’re grateful to my union and Thompsons for helping us to shine a light on what happened and identifying where mistakes were made by the Trust. We hope they will learn serious lessons.” Alexander, trade union member
