How can we help?
Any baby’s death is devastating but if it could have been avoided due to medical negligence, the impact on your whole family could be even more difficult to overcome.
We understand that no amount of money is ever going to bring back a much loved baby that has passed away due to negligence but we can help ease some of the financial burdens by obtaining compensation, investigate the claim to help you understand what happened, hold individual professionals to account and raise standards so that no one else has to go through what has happened to you.
We are specialist clinical negligence lawyers that have you and your family’s concerns at the heart of everything we do. We are here to listen to your concerns so we can fight your corner and use our expert knowledge to help you to bring your claim for compensation.
If a baby has died and their death is sudden or unexplained, an Inquest might be held to establish the facts surrounding their death, such as where and how the death occurred.
Having to attend the Inquest of your baby is extremely distressing and the process can be very confusing and daunting especially if the hospital and doctors have their own legal representation. As experts in the Inquest process, we can make sure that you are not alone; we can guide you through this difficult time with sensitivity and advice you can trust.
We are here to listen to your concerns. We are on your side and we can help you to get the answers that you need to understand what went wrong with your baby’s medical treatment.
Presently, only babies that were born alive are able to have an Inquest into their death. However, the government is currently looking at proposals to change the law to allow Coroners to investigate stillbirths. We are passionately behind this change in the law to help families understand why their baby has died, and when the law is changed, we want to help as many parents are possible.
