Birth Injury Claims
Having a baby is a highly emotional time. Happiness, excitement, anticipation for the future. These are all the feelings that all new and expectant parents expect to feel during pregnancy and after childbirth. You should not have to feel sorrow, anger or frustration because someone who was supposed to take care of you was negligent, resulting in an injury to the mother and/or baby.
If you have been let down before, during or just after childbirth by a healthcare professional, such as your midwife, health visitor or doctor, speak to our friendly, supportive solicitors about the possibility of making a birth injury compensation claim.
Tayntons’ birth injury claim solicitors in Gloucester support clients all over the UK with medical negligence compensation claims.
We understand that the process of making a claim can be confusing and frightening, especially when you are trying to adapt to the consequences of the birth injuries. We will do everything possible to make the process as straightforward as possible and claim the compensation you deserve.
Get in touch to arrange your free initial consultation with our birth injury compensation claim solicitors
We can offer you a free initial consultation to discuss your potential claim and the claims process. That way you can make an informed decision about whether to move forwards.
Our no win, no fee birth injury claim services
We can represent most of our clients on a no win, no fee basis (also known as a ‘conditional fee agreement’).
This means that you pay no legal fees to us upfront, and you will only have to pay if we win compensation for you. Our success fee will be based on a percentage of the settlement you receive and there are strict legal rules about how much lawyers can charge, so you will never be left out of pocket.
Wherever possible, we also request our legal costs in addition to your compensation settlement.
