Birth Injury Claims
Parents have every right to expect their newborn will be delivered safely during childbirth. But when mistakes are made by doctors and midwives, it can have a devastating impact on the mother, baby, and family.
If you, your partner, or child has suffered an injury during the birth process then it’s crucial to seek legal advice as quickly as possible.
The consequences of negligent action, or inaction, during the birthing process can lead to very serious injuries for both mother and child. Such injuries may be life-changing and require long-term or even lifetime care, assistance, and rehabilitation.
Our experienced birth injury solicitors are available to qualify and advance your claim, ensuring you receive full treatment and compensation within the shortest possible time frame. We’ve managed successful claims for many families in the Greater Manchester area, so we understand the stressful and potentially harrowing experience you are going through.
Injuries can happen if the medical team in charge fails to act decisively whenever there are any early signs of trouble. For the baby, this may lead to cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, broken bones, or stillbirth. For the mother, injuries to organs, perineal tears, and fissures are common as a result of poor medical care.
It’s our job to manage the legal and financial side on your behalf, secure an effective treatment plan, and ensure your family can focus on the most important aspects of physical and psychological recovery.

What our clients say about us…
“When I asked Slater Heelis to represent me in April last year, we discussed a small claim between £3–5,000. I would have been happy with that, but your professionalism came through. You fought on my behalf and won an outstanding case with a far better outcome than I initially hoped for. You went that extra mile and ran my marathon for me. Thank you!”
