Was a mistake made during childbirth?
Although it is rare, doctors, nurses and midwives can make mistakes before, during or shortly after a baby is born. Unfortunately, when accidents happen to the mother or baby the results can often be devastating. A multitude of things can go wrong that can lead to a variety of birth injuries. An injured baby might recover in a relatively short period of time, however injuries that lead to conditions such as Cerebral Palsy and Erbs Palsy will have consequences that will be felt throughout the duration of the baby’s life. Birth injuries often come as a result of excessive force during birth, lack of oxygen to the baby or something missed prior to labour.
Paschal O’Hare Solicitors have been helping families in Northern Ireland claim for the deserved compensation for injuries to their children during birth for almost 50 years. When the consequences are lasting, we can pursue compensation that will continue throughout the baby’s lifetime. When appropriate, we can also seek special damages such as the cost for nursing care, home adaptations, specialist equipment, future loss of earnings and any other applicable costs.
