Birth pregnancy and gynaecology

The birth of your baby should be a time of happiness and celebration. Unfortunately sometimes things can go wrong often leading to devastating consequences. If you or your baby has suffered an injury during pregnancy, childbirth or gynaecology procedures, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

SC Law has a panel of specialist medical and other experts to prepare the reports needed to support a claim for negligence, which may occur to a mother during pregnancy, childbirth or be gynaecological, or where an injury occurs to the baby. Our medical negligence solicitors at SC Law understand the human cost of mistakes and sub-standard service during pregnancy and childbirth and that pursuing a claim at an already stressful time is another problem to cope with. We will provide practical, attentive and sympathetic advice so you feel reassured that your medical malpractice claim is being handled by an expert who has experience of pursuing claims where errors have been made during ante-natal care and birth. Tragically, in some cases, the mistake can lead to the death of the mother or baby. Our lawyers will put your needs first and work closely with you to make the process simple and easy to understand.

At SC Law, our medical negligence lawyers provide a personalised service that is tailor-made to each individual client's case. Shirley Giani is the Head of Clinical Negligence at SC Law and has extensive experience in handling cases where a mother has sustained a gynaecological injury or mistakes have taken place through the pregnancy or childbirth or the baby has been injured. We have some of the best London lawyers and know what action to take to make a positive difference to our clients.

Adverse Results of Negligence

Following the mistakes of the treating medical advisors or hospital, some of most common devastating consequences for the mother or baby can result in:

  • Serious abnormalities of the unborn baby due to inaccurate scanning
  • Injury caused by medical instruments, anaesthesia or surgery
  • Perforation of the bowel, uterus or other internal organs
  • Total abdominal or partial hysterectomy
  • Sterilisation
  • Pelvic floor muscle damage
  • Dilatation and curettage or ERPC surgery
  • Failure to diagnose certain gynaecological cancers, such as ovarian, cervical or womb
  • Wrongful birth through failed sterilisation or other contraceptive devices

Action we will take

Our medical negligence lawyers understand that if you have suffered an injury during pregnancy, childbirth or gynaecology procedures or if your baby has been injured, you will be going through an emotional and stressful time.
