If you or your baby have been injured during a caesarean section, a specialist medical negligence solicitor can assist you in making a claim
Medical negligence can occur in a variety of ways when staff overseeing a C-section delivery fail to meet their duty of care to mother and baby. In some instances, the effects of caesarean section negligence will be immediately visible. Whilst in other instances, failures can come to light retrospectively
These failures do not represent a comprehensive list of all situations where it may be appropriate to make a C-section compensation claim. If you or your child has suffered harm as a result of the actions of a medical professional during the course of a C-section, you should seek expert legal advice from Blackwater Law medical negligence solicitors to determine if you could be entitled to make a claim for medical negligence.
If you or your baby have suffered because of c-section negligence, making a claim for birth injury compensation may be your best chance to recover some of your damages and hold people accountable for the injury.
A failed c-section can lead to long-term, adverse effects on you, your baby or your ability to fall pregnant again in the future.
Making a caesarean claim means you could recover damages if you have had to pay for extra care for yourself or your child, or if the damage caused to you has affected your ability to work.
