Birth injury claims – our services

Cerebral palsy claims

Cerebral palsy relates to several neurological conditions. These conditions typically cause a partial or complete loss of motor function, resulting in a lack of co-ordination. An estimated 1 in 400 people in the UK is currently living with cerebral palsy.

Causes of cerebral palsy:

  • Infection – an infection during pregnancy could affect brain development
  • Oxygen supply – an insufficient oxygen supply could damage the child’s brain
  • A difficult or premature birth – this could result in bleeding inside the child’s brain

Erb’s palsy claims

Erb’s palsy is a type of birth injury that results in a partial or complete loss of motor function and sensory perception in an arm. The condition may also result post birth, where the shoulder nerves are damaged for any reason (such as medical negligence).

Causes of Erb’s palsy

  • Head first delivery – the child’s shoulder nerves may become hyperextended if the head and shoulders are pulled to one side prior to the body being clear of the birthing canal.
  • Feet first delivery (breech) – in the event of a feet first delivery, the child’s arms will likely become raised in the birthing canal. If not suitably managed, excessive pressure could be exerted on the child’s shoulders during delivery, potentially damaging the nerves.

Shoulder dystocia

Shoulder dystocia occurs where the child’s shoulder becomes lodged behind the mother’s pelvic bone during birth, preventing delivery. Maternal diabetes and maternal obesity are linked to the condition.

Signs of shoulder dystocia include:

  • The child’s heads appears and retracts
  • The child’s face is noticeably flushed and ‘puffy’

Shoulder dystocia claims – expert guidance

If you believe that you may be entitled to shoulder dystocia compensation, contact our expert team of medical negligence solicitors today – discover whether you could be entitled to maximum personal injury compensation.

Forceps delivery injury

Obstetric forceps are used to assist with the child’s progression along the birth canal during labour. Different types of forceps may be required at different stages of delivery. If your child has been injured as a result of a forceps delivery, contact us today for professional legal advice.

Understanding forceps delivery

Typical situations that could require a forceps delivery include:

  • Where maternal exhaustion or illness affects the mother’s strength during labour
  • Where an epidural reduces the mother’s strength during labour
  • A lengthy second stage (‘push’ stage) of labour

Forceps delivery injury claims

If you believe that you may have a forceps delivery injury claim in relation to medical negligence, we may be able to help. Remember we offer you a FREE no-obligation consultation.

Congenital hip dysplasia

Congenital hip dysplasia refers to the deformation or misalignment of a foetal hip joint. The condition affects 1-3% of births, and can sometimes occur after birth. If your child has experienced hip dysplasia due to medical negligence, speak to our dedicated legal team today.

Understanding congenital hip dysplasia

  • Unilateral dysplasia – the deformity is present in one hip. Unilateral dysplasia most commonly occurs in the left hip.
  • Bilateral dysplasia(breech) – the deformity is present in both hips. 80% of all congenital hip dysplasia occurs in girls, and 20% of all cases are bilateral.

Congenital hip dysplasia claims

Congenital hip dysplasia compensation may be available where medical negligence is linked to your child’s condition. Remember we offer you a FREE no-obligation consultation. Discover today whether you could be entitled to maximum personal injury compensation, call 0800 888 6 888 or email info@hh-law.co.uk

Gestational diabetes

Gestational diabetes is an increase in blood glucose during pregnancy, and may occur even where the mother has not previously exhibited symptoms of diabetes.

Causes of gestational diabetes

  • The presence of a placental hormone that inhibits the mother’s insulin receptors – the mother’s body is effectively prevented from detecting the need to produce insulin.
  • An existing risk of diabetes – gestational diabetes may occur in pregnant women who were at risk of developing diabetes prior to becoming pregnant (the presence of the fetus provides additional competition for the available insulin supply).

Complications could include

  • Premature labour
  • Neonatal hypoglycaemia – low blood glucose levels in the infant
  • Macrosomia – or ‘large foetus’, potentially giving rise to a traumatic birth

Gestational diabetes claims

Gestational diabetes compensation may be available where medical negligence is linked to your child’s condition. Remember we offer you a FREE no-obligation consultation.
