Birth Injury


During pregnancy you will rely heavily on a range of medical professionals for advice and guidance, including your GP, midwife, nurses and hospital doctors. If the advice or care you receive at any stage during your pregnancy or labour falls below what should be reasonably expected, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim.

Injury can occur to mother, baby or both mother and baby. Whilst there are a wide variety of circumstances and negligent acts which can provide grounds for a compensation claim to be made, common circumstances, include but are not limited to those described below.

Injuries to baby

  • Forceps delivery
  • Cerebal palsy
  • Scaring

Bevirs Law operate a no win no fee funding arrangement which ensures all costs in the legal process are met by us throughout the case using our insurance product. This means we can fully investigate your case and use all the resources at our disposal to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to, without any financial risk to you.

Once you have been in touch with us about claiming compensation, we will follow up our initial discussion wherever possible by arranging a face to face meeting with you, either in our office, hospital or we are happy to come to your home. At this first meeting we will explain exactly what actions we will be taking, and the process involved in seeking financial compensation. We will also let you know what you can do to help us and explain more fully how we fund the case.
