Hospital staff, most importantly Midwives, usually provide a high standard of care during childbirth. However, if procedures are not followed correctly or there’s a breakdown in communication, there could be severe consequences for the new-born baby or/ mother.
A number of our lawyers here at Oakwood Solicitors specialise in helping families with claims involving cerebral palsy, which usually occurs when the child’s brain is starved of oxygen before or during birth.
Other injuries caused by negligence during birth include Erb’s palsy, spinal injuries, fractured bones, facial paralysis, Kernicterus caused by untreated jaundice), lack of oxygen (hypoxia), stillbirth and other fatal cases.
