Birth Injury Claims

If you suffered complications during pregnancy or childbirth, you may have a claim for compensation.

Gwyneth Munjoma, Chelmsford

Starting your birth injury claim

Pregnancy, childbirth and the post-natal period are happy times for most parents, bar the sleepless nights. However, for a few parents and their children a medical error can have life-changing consequences.

If something happened to you, or your baby, you don't have to suffer in silence.  Our medical negligence solicitors can help you find a way forward.

How we can help you

You’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.

We have a strong track-record of helping women who have suffered complications during pregnancy and child birth.  Our solicitors understand the system inside out, and have years of practical experience in birth injury claims.  We've helped our clients get answers about what went wrong as well as financial compensation.

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story; we will ask what’s happened to you and what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

Whatever you decide, you’ll have our complete support and discretion.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that it is rarely about the money alone - for many people it’s more important to understand what went wrong, and to make sure that the same thing never happens to another family. We’ll help you do that.

Financial Compensation

We will tell you if you have a case for compensation - we've been working with parents and their children for years and have won many complex cases.

Every case is unique, but the impact of a birth injury for mother or child can be emotionally and physically devastating.

Compensation can give you and your family financial security for the future, particularly where there are lasting needs.  It could, for example, pay for professional carers, medical treatment or therapies, specialist equipment, housing needs and so on. We will factor it all into any claim.

With you every step of the way

We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice.  With Tees by your side, you are not alone. Our practical, specialist advice can help you move forward.

We know this is a hard time for you and your family, so we’ll do everything we can to make it easier.

We've handled many birth injury claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you and your family. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We’ll investigate your case as quickly, thoroughly and sensitively as we can. We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on.

Tees looks at the big picture to give you the best advice - now, and for the future. Looking after your family’s immediate needs is a priority, but we also look at your future needs. We can bring in expertise from our financial, residential, and trusts teams. Together, we'll protect any compensation you receive and ensure it's managed effectively and efficiently. You can be confident that we’re fixed on getting the result that helps you and your family to begin putting your life back together.

Don’t worry about costs

We will not charge you to assess your case – this will be free. 

After that, there are many ways you can pursue the case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Public Funding (legal aid), Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement. We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
