Birth & Pregnancy Negligence

Birth & Pregnancy Negligence

Birth Injuries - the baby

It should be the happiest time in a parents life, the joy of their happy healthy baby.  When something goes wrong the consequences are your worse nightmare as a Mother or Father.  You need time, sensitivity, kindness and support.  Bell Lax can offer you that and peace of mind.

We have helped parents through this emotional time with children born with heartbreaking conditions through the mistakes and neglect of the medical profession.  We have spoken to parents who are still coping with their child born with devastating conditions such as;

  • Meconium aspiration which is a serious lung condition. 
  • Cerebral Palsy due to a head or brain injury during pregnancy or birth.  The cause is often lack of oxygen or negligence during the birth, failure to monitor the babies vitals pre-birth and mistakes made during caesarean sections.
  • Fracturing of the babies bones during birth
  • Hip dysplasia

Birth Injuries - The Mother

Complications arising during pregnancy or delivery do unfortunately happen, which is why a specialist medical team (anti-natal, maternity  and pediatrics) are on hand to help and guide you through this time.  Errors made by these specialised medical professionals or lack of attention during routine check ups should not happen, but when they do, the consequences are very serious and in some instances fatal.  Have you or someone you know experienced a complicated pregnancy or birth?

Injuries to the Mother will include;

  • Pre-eclampsia - failure to diagnose
  • Premature labour - failure to attend to the common symptoms such as high blood pressure and bleeding during pregancy
  • ​Placental Abruption - Failure to diagnose the separation of the placenta from the uterine lining.
  • Perineal tears - failure to treat the tear early enough.
  • Anaesthetic error
  • Retained swabs or other medical apparatus.
