Birth injury claim

Birth injury claim

The birth of a child should be one of the most cherished moments of a parent’s life, so when injuries occur during childbirth, the consequences can be life changing for the child and the whole family. Following a birth injury, help may be required to make arrangements for the long term care needs of your child and with the consequent financial costs of this.
