Birth injury claims FAQ.

We understand that making a claim against a medical practitioner is a big decision, and one that may be causing you some stress.

Remember that when you claim compensation, you’re seeking a settlement from the insurer of the hospital or specialist to compensate you for your losses. It’s a settlement you’re entitled to and deserve to receive if you’ve been harmed through negligence.

If you’re having trouble deciding, you’re welcome to simply call one of our birth injury lawyers and have a confidential conversation. There’s no pressure or obligation to proceed with a claim if you’re not ready, and we’ll always be here if you need us.

A no win no fee medical negligence lawyer offers to run your case for you and only get paid when you win. If you choose the right lawyer, it’s an excellent option that allows you to pursue your claim without any risk, but it’s important to check the lawyer’s costs agreement to fully understand what’s covered. With some no win no fee lawyers you can still end up having to pay thousands of dollars in disbursements if your case is unsuccessful. This is because their no win no fee agreements cover their professional fees but not the costs they incur. At Law Partners, our no win no fee, no disbursements guarantee covers all our costs and disbursements as well as our professional fees, so you can pursue your claim with peace of mind.

Unfortunately, gynaecological and pregnancy-related injuries frequently occur as a result of inattention, inexperience or unavailability of the treating medical practitioners in clinics and hospitals. The consequences for these injuries are often devastating, as they often cause significant physical and psychological damage, and sometimes totally debilitate the mother so that she’s unable to bond with and care for her new-born baby. These injuries can lead to breakdowns of relationships and have psychological effects on other family members. Seeking compensation can’t replace everything you’ve lost, but it can provide significant financial relief so that you can focus on your own wellbeing.
