It is a blessing to have a baby in the family. No feeling is as wonderful as it is when you become a father or a mother. On the contrary, there is no worse feeling when a baby gets injured due to the fault of the obstetrician, midwife, or the nurse present during the time of labor and delivery of the newborn.
Not only the child, the mother can also become subjected to birth injuries. When the healthcare provider’s negligence is the prime cause behind birth injuries, birth injury negligence claims can be filed. The intervention of a professional solicitor is desirable to handle the birth injury claims successfully.

The obstetricians working in the NHS hospitals are high trained and experienced enough to handle the entire process of child delivery. In most of the cases, they are successful in helping the mother deliver healthy babies. However, in certain instances, their negligence during the labor and delivery of the newborn contributes to birth injuries. The result of birth injuries is often catastrophic making the baby and his parents suffer for the entire life.
