Birth Injury Claims and Neonatal Death Compensation


Having a new born baby can be stressful enough without having added issues/complications during the neonatal period (relating to the moment a baby is born up until day 28).

To know that complications could have been minimised or even avoided completely, can make the situation seem even more difficult.

How Can a Medical Professional Cause a Neonatal Issue?

  • Delayed or inadequate examination of both mother and baby
  • No action taken to improve the wellbeing of mother/baby
  • A below standard of care given throughout the birth/aftercare
  • Misdiagnosis or wrongly prescribed medications
This birth negligence can have the following effects on a baby:
  • Blood poisoning (sepsis)
  • Problems with baby’s breathing
  • Hypoglycaemia (closely related with diabetes)
  • Restricted growth/problems with growth further on
  • Heart defects (congenital)
There may also be the following effects on the mother:
  • Perineal tears
  • Organ injury
  • Blood clots, fits or even stroke
  • No pain relief after or poorly performed caesarean section
Due to the vulnerability of both mother and baby during this ‘neonatal’ period the upmost care is expected from nurses and doctors.
