Birth Defect & Wrongful Birth Claims

Our dedicated team of Medical Negligence Lawyers can assist you with your Wrongful Birth claim and help you to obtain the compensation you deserve in what can be a complex area of law.

We provide specialist expertise in this complex area of the law.

These types of cases can be summarised as:

  • Wrongful Conception
    This could be failed sterilisation procedures or lack of advice in relation to medication which counteracts birth control.
  • Wrongful birth
    Where the offer of termination of the baby could have been a treatment plan, for example if an abnormality was detected

If you think you may have a medical negligence claim involving wrongful birth, contact us today.

Any claim will be brought by the mother and a three year time limit applies. This is three years from the negligence or date of knowledge.

“We can advise on what can be claimed for and how much would be appropriate. We offer sensitivity and expertise.”
