If you are looking for a medical negligence solicitor in or near Bath to help with a birth injury claim, please contact us today. We specialise in perineal tear claims, and also conduct other types of birth injury claims such as cerebral palsy claims.
Perineal tear claims Bath
Perineal tear claims normally arise because a 3rd or 4th degree tear has not been properly diagnosed and treated. In the UK, 3rd and 4th degree tears should be recognised and repaired shortly after the birth. If this is achieved, there has been a reasonable standard of care.
But if for some reason the tear is not detected, meaning a woman if left with a defect in her perineum/sphincter, the standard of care will be called into question. If the tear was missed because of medical error – for example, an examination was not performed – there will be a case of medical negligence.
Cerebral palsy claims Bath
Medical errors can also cause a baby to suffer serious injuries, including cerebral palsy. Most commonly this will happen if the birth is mismanaged and the baby is unnecessarily deprived of oxygen, thereby resulting in brain damage.

What will we do?
The first thing we will do is to listen to the details of your care. We do this during a free initial enquiry, normally conducted over the telephone. Once we have got all the details we need, we will assess the care you received and suggest whether or not it fell below an acceptable standard.
If you were subject to substandard medical care and this caused you (or your baby) to suffer unnecessary harm, you will have grounds for a claim. If you would like to proceed, we will handle everything for you, running the claim on your behalf.
